ETO Update: August 2021

skip to content


August Update

During our last update we told you we had hoped to get our rescue house open by mid July. 

Unfortunately this has not been possible as Coronavirus restrictions placed a curfew on all non essential workers in Kenya, limiting the time workers can be on site.  

Even so, the plastering of the internal walls has now been finished.  

We are currently working on painting these walls.

We recently received a lovely email from Kaguaru Mwiti one of our ETO children, thanking ETO and in particular his Sponsor for changing his life. 

This was his email...
'Thanks for including me as part of the family. In fact am one of great  beneficiary of the program in kenya. Kindly pass my gratitude to Mrs Preston for accepting and supporting me. May God Bless her and eto for changing my life. I would also like to hear from her of well being.  God bless you'. 

Thank you to all our Sponsors your support really do change lives...

We are continuing to see an increase in needy and orphan children coming to ETO for support and to get fed.  Even though a Kenyan curfew is in operation we have seen children from three different tribes traveling during the night to come to ETO for food and support.  Please continue to pray for the plight of these children. 

As you can see from the photos below, the Shamba / Farm produced a really bountiful crop this year.  Thank you Lord for your continued provision and blessing.

As we told you last month, the money raised from selling part of this crop has paid the water fees for the water used (for three months due to the lack of rain), with the rest being distributed between our schools and as a tithe to the church.

The children at Maguna Anna school have been helping to get the school cleaned and ready for the new term

We are currently awaiting the deeds and getting the boundary setup for the new Farm we have purchased.  The new Farm will be registered under Maguna Anna.

The additional cow we purchased a few months ago has finally arrived at Maguna Anna.  We now have 2 cows and young calf.

Also a number of sheep were kindly donated by a local MP.
