The blog for the Missions of Hope has a new domain name www.kenyamissionsofhope.org. Please be sure to change your bookmarks and visit often. Jonah would love to hear from you.
Once the blog was available at the new domain, I posted about the change of address and was promptly informed that the comment feature was not working. It appears to have been a blogger problem and I apologize if you were trying to leave a comment and couldn't. I think it is working now.
The last post was about little Linet and her family. Linet is the little girl who needs reconstructive surgery. MOH was not able to help her with surgery because we are still recovering from the months of expenses for little Kigen's medical needs, however Jonah did help Linet to get medical attention for a month as she was losing weight and unable to eat. She is stable at the moment but we want to keep her that way.
One of the things we would like to do to help little Linet and her family is to help her mother with a micro-enterprise initiative. The mother wants to start a beauty salon business near where she lives. If she is successful in this venture, she may be able to take care of Linet's surgical needs herself. We just don't know for certain if she will be able to cover the cost of surgery for her little girl but at least she would be able to try and make some money of her own. I have received one contribution toward this project and have contributed funds of my own but we need another $100 to $150 to fully fund this enterprise and get Linet's mother on her way. If you can help at all, please donate here.
