Being a kid is hard. Its hard in any country you are
in, but especially difficult in a third world country.
The pressures and responsibilities of kids here are
vastly different than those of the majority of kids in
Here, from a very young age, kids are expected to
help in their household. Its common to see a five
year old carrying around their six month old sibling
and taking care of them while their parents work. A
child as young as two or three may walk long
distances to collect water for their family. An eight
year old may start the fire and cook morning tea and
porridge for the family and cook rice and beans in
the evening Teenagers often work to help support

Prayer Requests: We are in great need of a

our family use. So far we
have raised about 25% of
what we need.

Even while God has us in

opportunities to serve in Kenya,

medical camp set up in a rural
area, serving those who may not

their families needs.
The most pressing need for familys is school fees.
School is not free and if you dont have the money
to pay, you dont go to school. If you dont go to
school, your chances of finding a job are very slim.
Schools can cost as little as $100 per year, but that is
often way more than a family can afford. Most
barely make enough for food. So imagine being
faced with the stress of sending five kids to school.
The kids feel the stress as much as the parents do.
We recognize how hard life is here for the youth.
We also realize they need help to get through it all.
Most of all they need the Lord. So, in an effort to
reach out to these kids, well be hosting a weekend
youth camp the last weekend in August. The kids
will come Friday to Sunday. Well give them food,
lodging, good fellowship and lots of time for Bible
Study and times of prayer and worship.
Our desire is that they meet Jesus that weekend and
commit to a life that honors him and makes a
difference in their house and communities. Life is
hard, but its so much better with God. Pray for us
as we prepare for this weekend. Ask God to use us
and speak to their precious hearts.
We met the leader of the
ministry last year after being
connected by mutual friends
from the US. He and the team
coming are from Southern
California. They have done this
before and expect to see over
Not only will those peoplereceive the medical help they
need, they will also get a chance
to hear the gospel as well. This
type of ministry is right up our
alley and we are honored to
help them out. George will be
working as the lab technologist
and I will help out as much as I
can while looking after Eli.

George, Stacie & Eli Orwa
FellowshipThings are going well at Yesu
Anaweza. Georges discipleship class
is going great. They are almost
finished with the book of James.
Stacies womens group is going strong
as the ladies are learning to open up.
Its also important to us to help out
with the physical needs of the people
around us. As our monthly support
grows, we are able to do that more
and more. We have been able to do
home visitations and leave them with a
small gift. Next week we are going to
the home of a widow and will be able
to bring her a basket of food and
supplies. We have also been able to
assist with school fees and other small

needs that come up.
This coming Sunday, we are hosting a
tea fellowship following the church
service. We want the congregation
to stay and spend time talking with
each other and growing as brothers
and sisters in Christ.
All of this we wouldnt be able to do
without those in the US who pray for
us and financially support us. Thank
you for being a part of Gods ministry
here. We are so blessed by you all
and many here are blessed by you as
God Bless you!
