Those who read this blog regularly will know we cover a wide range of topics.
Recent posts have included some really good laughs, Travel tips, Health advice, House Sitting Information and many other things.
You will also know that Christian House Sitters operates world wide offering rent-free vacations to Christians and also finding reliable Christians who will look after your home and pets free of charge while you are away.
Our home owners do not pay to join and our sitters pay just £25 per year all of which goes to support a Christian Children’s Home in Kenya called Home of Peace.
I have just sent out the latest newsletter about Home of Peace ( we send about 4 a year) and I felt that I should also share this news update here.
HOME OF PEACE. UPDATE March 2014
We need urgent prayer for two new dormitories otherwise half of these children will be sent home by the authorities even though they have no suitable homes to be sent to.
We have applied for registration for Home of Peace Children’s Home. The children services and the Health Department have been very helpful but we have too many children for the two dormitories and one nursery room.
We need to show the authorities that we are serious about building new dormitories. In December the children services arrived and wanted to start sending some of the children away from the home as soon as the school year finished and I had to write and persuade them to give us a few more months. A lot of these children have one parent but they would be going back into extreme poverty with no schooling but children services have their rules. They would have sent the older children from about 10 years old away to fend for themselves with family who can’t even support themselves.
All our children are doing very well at school and the headmaster is very impressed with the results.
Please pray for God to do a miracle. We will need about of £6000 to build two new dormitories.
The Health Department inspected the home recently and the report sent to me was very good. The home, according to the official report, is very clean and the children all well looked after.
The existing dormitories after repainting and repair
We have had to repair the two existing dormitories and to paint them inside and out and this has been done. A while ago we had a gift from a church which enabled us to repair and paint the dormitories
The nursery room which takes the 14 youngest children is still in very good condition.
We have had a wonderful answer to prayer for school uniforms. A lovely Christian family gave us £500 which provided uniforms for all the school children and play clothes for the small children.
We’ve also managed to buy exercise books and textbooks, pens, pencils, et cetera and have paid £200 towards the school fees from other gifts that we received.
The school has said they will wait a little longer for the rest of the fees and we have promised to pay them the balance as soon as God provides.
Thank you very much to all those who gave towards this!
Please pray for a miracle for the two dormitories.
If your church or a group in your church are looking for a worthwhile project they may consider helping to raise money for the building.
