Young Girl With Alligator
Although they are well taken care of, the lives of our orphans at the Home of Grace is routine and rather boring. Today Valerie and I and the orphanage staff took all the kids on a grand outing. We started off with a visit to the Giraffe Center. It’s a […]

An Unforgettable Day



I once heard a prominent speaker on marriage talk about the difference between men and women. He said women can never “do nothing”.

Psalm 82:3-4 NIVR Stand up for the weak and for children whose fathers have died. Protect the rights of people who are poor or treated badly. Save those who are weak and needy. Save them from the power of sinful people. The best-selling non-fiction book in history has now sold […]

Just a brief note to thank everyone for your prayers for Valerie. She had a breakthrough late this morning and is feeling much better now. We are praying that whatever bacteria she had is on the run. Our daughter Rebekah posted a prayer request for her on her Facebook page […]

Wednesday was My Day



Just finished several hours of fellowship with our dear friends Sammy and Rose Chacha. Yes! Their last name really is ChaCha, get over it! After listening to their story, I will never complain about anything I have ever been through in my entire life. It would make a spellbinding fiction […]

Stranger than Fiction


Yesterday we had a visit with our doctor, here in Nairobi. His name is Dr. Chunge. He is a brilliant Christian doctor who is now making personal sacrifices to start a medical school in Kakamega. Somehow we got on the subject of the Kenyan culture and he told me a […]
