Christmas Chickens & Dinner Stuffs
PASTORS JOHN & TABBY GARANG -
Oasis Church in Oxford, Mississippi funded the chickens for the Christmas dinner again this year. Our Iowa supporters purchased all the trimmings plus provided Christmas meals for children on Mt. Elgon and in Bungoma. Even though we weren't able to give individual gifts, the children appreciated their favorite meal of chicken, rice, ugali, greens and beans.
The CAP house we built in 2009/10 got much needed improvements recently. Bunk beds were remade to fit the new mattresses we bought last October, fresh, washable paint was put in all the rooms, and plumbing was repaired in the bathrooms. Wow, what a face lift for the moms and children!
School is Back in Session for 126 Students!
CAP School began its second year a few weeks ago. We now have 126 children enrolled; approximately 55 more than last year. Most of the students are preschool age, but we can accommodate up to 4th grade until more classrooms are built. Recently, funds were afforded to break ground on the kitchen/cafeteria. This dining area is required by the Ministry of Education in Kenya. Will Guest, leader of the Mississippi group called "Room #4" is planning to travel to Kenya soon to see the new construction first hand. Will, his mother, Mary Catherine and other Mississippi supporters have worked hard raising funds. Their desire is for this school to look beautiful and provide excellent education for the children. It is coming to pass!
