Want to go to Kenya?

I will be going to Kenya Nov. 14 - Dec. 3. This trip will include:

1. A trip to Marsabit to check on the water filter, take the shoe design and tools for the people to make shoes to prevent jiggers and to follow-up on the Hope Farm (a farming project to grow food to feed the many orphans in this area).

2. To hold a medical camp with the Lumumba Foundation. This one will be in the Western part of Kenya. We will also do a what if? campaign there and evangelism outreach.

3. To attend the Dec. 3 celebration of the pastor training school Beth Casey and Sally Gresham have opened.

If you want to go you can go for part or all of the trip. The airfares are about the lowest they are all year.

Let me know...

Partners for Care partners with International Shoemaking Design (see PFC on their website

Sandra Bolton was touched when she read about the children in Marsabit needing shoes to prevent the jiggers from infesting in their feet. She was moved to do something about it. She searched the internet and found International Shoemaking Design and contacted them telling them about Marsabit. To her surprise someone from the company called her.

That was just three weeks ago. In this short time, the designers at International Shoemaking design have designed a special shoe for the children that can be made in Marsabit. They are donating the tools necessary to make the shoes. Pastor Hirbo will have the youth of the church make the shoes as a mission outreach to the unreached tribes.

International Shoemaking Design has a website for their non-profit part of their business Go to their website and see the story of Marsabit.

Thank you Sandra for not just be moved by what you learned about the children but doing something about it.

I will carry the tools, pattern, etc. with me when I travel to Marsabit in November. And, thank you International Shoemaking Design for caring to help the children in Marsabit.

Praying for the children in Marsabit,
