Tale of Three

 Be ye strong … for your work shall be rewarded 
 2 Chr. 15:7

My friend Jonah in Kenya has had a lot of highs and lows over this past month.

He finished his thesis and has now been able to have it bound and attend to all the administrative requirements they had him to at the main campus in Uganda. He is just waiting to get his official grades and graduation certificate later this month but he has done well.  However, he has not been able to move all his belongings from Nakuru to his home in the village. Please keep this need in prayer.

No sooner did Jonah complete his thesis then his aunt took ill and died.  Her funeral was just the other day and was very well attended. She was a good strong Christian example and she will be deeply missed.  You can read more here.

In other sad news, Jonah's mother is now ill and has been taken to the local hospital for medical tests and evaluation.  She will probably be sent to Eldoret for more testing because the local hospital really doesn't have much capacity. Jonah's mom just graduated last month with a Diploma in Theology.

Please keep all these needs and Jonah in much prayer.  Everything has a financial and personal or emotional cost and we all need help in times like this.

We are also still trying to raise funds for Little Linet's cleft palate surgery.

You can read more about that here. If you can help with any of the costs, please send your generous donation.

Hi Jan, Yes, there are so many needs in Kenya but Jonah's family has been particularly hard hit of late. I would appreciate your prayers for him and his needs.

I'm so glad you can see your great-nephew through Facebook. I bet he is a cute boy!

Love and blessings, J

Thanks for sharing and showing how much you care. I shall think of Jonah and his family. Sad when life deals so many lows just when a goal has been achieved. But we all know that's just the way it is. May the furutre be brighter for him.
