    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

    the US.

    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

    FAMILY: Greetings from the Orwas

    Prayer Requests: We are in great need of a

    car for both ministry and

    our family use. So far we

    have raised about 25% of

    what we need.

    For God to work

    through the medical

    outreach camp in Kenya.

    Also for patience and

    flexibility as Eli goes with

    us, that he does well

    when out of his routine. For the leaders of Africa

    Harvest of Hope, Alan

    and Shannon Reed as

    they raise funds for the

    orphanage stateside.

    Good health for all

    of us.

    Ministry Opportunity We are excited to be going to

    Kenya in the beginning of August.

    Even while God has us in

    Tanzania, we still look for

    opportunities to serve in Kenya,

    Georges home country. Th is

    time, we will be helping in a

    medical camp set up in a rural

    area, serving those who may not

    have the resources to seek

    Let no one despise or think less of you because of your youth, but be an example for believers in

    speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity. 1 Timothy 4:12

    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.

    medical attention.

    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

    1500 people.

    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!
