ASK GOD ABOUT JESUS-MAN IN KENYA AND YOU
I do not normally use gracEmail for this purpose (to do so could quickly consume every issue), but I come today urging you to consider a special need in Africa and to ask God if you are to be a part of the solution.
George Odhiambo is a Jesus-man in Kenya in East Africa, with whom Sara Faye and I have had contact for several years. He and his wife Lilian have three children (full disclosure: one of whom is named “Edward Fudge Odhiambo”) but like many of their fellow-Christians there, they also support his father, other relatives and some village orphans.
George is a graduate of Great Commission Evangelism School of Nairobi, and he is looked to as a leader in the church and in a struggling Christian school in their village. This is how George described the situation and the urgent need to me:
“Brother, join me in prayer that God can provide me with a small house to live in after my mud house was washed away by floody rainfall that has been raining day and night since September. Thank you for your prayer that so my father, sisters and my family will be uplifted by our Saviour. We are staying in a nearby centre, church members donated to us beddings and utensils. Our God is not like the deaf gods of Baal’s prophets, and He will answer our prayer.”
I have consulted with other American and Kenyan Christians very knowledgeable about the situation and how best to meet the need. The maximum total cost to replace the Odhiambo’s mud hut with a bare-bones but well-built house of concrete blocks and bricks with some wood and steel framing is 660,640 Kenyan shillings, or $7,336.00. This number might be reduced some through further negotiation.
