I wish to thank you for your prayers , and to thank everyone who has given towards the children with incarcerated parents in Kenya and Tanzania .This years Tuition and School supplies have already been provided for the 9 children in Kenya and 13 Children in Tanzania . Its all covered! Praise God for that!!!!
I believe we can do it again and better next year ,We need support for 2018 to continue supporting these children and also support another 12 of those in dire need on the waiting list. Our Total Budget for the ministry in Kenya and Tanzania next year is $19,000 ,but any size of donation helps.
May 31- June 5, 2017, i was in Embu Kenya, where i visited the children with a parent in prison who we support and new ones.in their villages , schools and also reached out to babies and their moms in prison. I also took a great amount of time training the Wells of Hope team in Kenya.
One of the great achievements during my visit, is that the Prison Chaplain and officers in Embu Women Prison in Kenya allowed us to get details of the inmates , and their families, so that we can be able to trace/visit their families. Prior , we had been told that the prison would not allow us get details from the prisoners about their families. So what we did last year was to go through churches by asking people in the neighborhood if they knew someone who has a loved one in prison, and that is how we got the current children we support..
Based on the Ugandan experience we can do a better assessment of the families in need , and we can find families more easily if the process starts from the parents in prison by acquiring details from the prisoners directly..
Because of Wells of Hope in Kenya ,it is now possible to get details from the inmates directly concerning their families . We thank God for opening these gates.
