Blessings in Jesus!
We are extremely thankful to all our sponsors, for your support through finance
and prayers! Please know that we do not take for granted, the financial sacrifice many of you make to
support our children, Sekela and the center. You are regularly in our prayers and we pray and trust that
God will provide for your needs. Your support is having an impact on our children, their families, our
neighborhood and the wider community of Tanzania, not only for now but also for eternity!
We thank God for sponsors who provide sponsorship of Sekela and our children and for sponsors who
provide one-off financial support for a specific purpose. We received funds from a dear friend, who
visited us two years ago from the Netherlands, who wanted us to have a special outing. We were
delighted last month to take our children to Matema at Lake Tanganyika, about a 4 hour drive from our
orphan center. For all of our children it was the first time they had been to Matema! They absolutely
loved the opportunity to swim and if they had the chance, would have loved to stay in the water all day!
The trip to Matema was also a celebration of three of our children’s lives; Baraka (15), Sikujua (20) and
Yustar (16). Aside from Baraka, Sikujua and Yustar, the rest of our children also received a birthday
present of new clothes from a sponsor in New Zealand.
During the school holidays, our children relished the chance to learn how to bake! On the menu as
requested by our children were chocolate chip biscuits, peanut brownies and chocolate cake with icing
and hundreds and thousands!
In early April our older children asked if they could participate in house to house evangelism during their school holidays in June. We had thirteen children keen to participate! As per usual we partner with a local church and also this time we partnered with one of our board members’ and his church. We praise God for how He is impacting the hearts of our children and their desire for their people to come to know Jesus as their Lord and Saviour.
Thank you for your prayers! We praise God for Kelvin and Sikujua (at right), who completed
form five exams in May and since late last month are studying form six! They are both studying
general studies, history, English and Kiswahili and are boarding at school. This is their last year of
secondary school and providing they perform well, God willing they will be able to attend
university next year.
Thank you so much for praying for Sarafina (at left)! Sarafina had hoped to study to be a doctor,however, the government assigned her different subjects based on her exam results from last year. She had applied to the education office to change her subjects but they declined her request. Last week
Sarafina entered form five or fifth year of secondary school. She is studying general studies, history, English and Kiswahili and is boarding.
We thank God for all our children, that we have the privilege of mentoring and caring for. We thank God for your partnership through prayers and sponsorship, which enable our children to have opportunities they would not otherwise have. Sekela, our children and I would love to meet you! Please prayerfully consider coming to Tanzania and visiting us!
