Big Points requiring Pray, Guidance and finance
- Last month we sent approx £3000 to purchase food for the children. Unfortunately the cost of food in Kenya has become so costly that a 100Kg bag of Beans now costs 9,900 Kenyan Shillings (£70.00) almost double what we normally paid 2 years ago. The countries main food 'Maize' now costs 4600 Kenyan Shillings (£33.50) again doubling in price.
- As famine and drought are continuing to spread across much of eastern Africa and food prices continue to rise, we have been investigating the possibility of renting or buying land (with constant access to water). This should enable us to become more self sufficient in growing more food crops to feed the children and having to be less dependant on purchasing expensive food from other countries (namely Uganda and Tanzania). We are asking for prayer for guidance and support for this worthwhile project.
