Dear GOGCP family,
We pray that you are having a blessed weekend. We wanted to reach out to you requesting prayers for our children. Our children at Grace Family have not started school this quarter due to ongoing teachers strike since the beginning of August. They went to school for few days at the start of this quarter and then they were sent back home.  It’s been on and off. We are really worried about this, it’s affecting our children, and children in Kenya in general.  The teachers are demanding a salary increase of at least 150 percent and the government, however, insists that it has no money to implement an increase in their monthly wages. The teachers are citing the high cost of living in Kenya today to justify their strike. The strike has affected all our children since they are currently attending public schools at the primary (1-8th grade) or secondary (High school) levels since private schools are more expensive. The students were supposed to report to class weeks ago, but unfortunately they have not yet been able to resume their studies.  We have received various reports that children are very frustrated and stressed on when they will be going back to school and resuming their normal studies.
Our main concern about the strike is that the loss of class time will negatively impact public school students' overall education compared with their contemporaries who attend private school and are not affected by the strike. This is affecting us a lot since all our children attend public school.  Another concern relates to how students will spend their time while they are not attending school. Our children are very restless; they easily get in trouble because they are now idle. With no teachers at school, the children might fall prey to bad behavior and groups. We are hoping that the standoff between the teachers and Kenyan government will be resolved soon. The children are really suffering.
We are also praying and hoping that we will finish the school construction before the end of next year. This will help us resolve future issues like this. Please help us complete classrooms (roofing-$1,500, plastering-$1,000, concrete-$1,200, windows and doors $600, Furniture and blackboard-$1,750, Labor $1,500, Estimated total=$7,550). Click HERE if you would like to make a donation towards school construction. The goal of GOGCP is to continue to make a difference in the lives of children who need help. With the help of donations from supporters such as you, we will continue to see more and more orphans and poor children succeed in life. Thank you for supporting GOGCP and for praying for the school children.  We can’t do anything without such a blessing people like you. The children are and our family are praying for you, and your family for God’s many blessing.

Dear GOGCP Supporters,

On behalf of Grace of God Children’s Project (GOGCP) I would like to thank you for your support, prayers, and any involvement on this year’s mission trip to Kenya with the Liberty University team! Here is what the team achieved with God’s strength and through your support and prayers: 
  • Started to build the outer walls of 3 classrooms at GOGCC (Grace of God Children’s Centre) for a school we hope to start in the near future!
  • Organized a sustainable agriculture workshop at GOGCC and helped with some farm work
  • Track construction where it was measured out to be a 200 meters track with 4 lanes
  • Sports ministry at GOGCC which was a week long track camp to prepare for a track meet at the end of the week
  • Free Medical clinic in 4 locations (Kaptagat, Pokot, Kapsigot and Maasai Mara)
  • Distribution of food to the needy families in Pokot
  • Washed feet as a sign of God’s love and provided them with shoes
  • Distribution of clothing to the needy families in Pokot, Kaptagat, Kapsigot and Maasai Mara
  • Witnessed to various people during revival and evangelism meetings
  • Constructed two water towers at GOGCC for reliable water source
  • Visited schools and played with children and spent time in the classrooms
  • Played games with Grace family and showed them great love and attention
  • Built 2 houses for the needy out of timber and corrugated iron sheets

    While I (David) was in Kenya, it was heart breaking for me to find a lot of Jiggers (tiny bugs that burrow in the feet and constantly bite and dig and make their homes in feet that are dirty, have open wounds, no shoes) in the feet of the needy people that we washed, especially the children. Please keep them in your prayers. We take shoes for granted here in America but it is really needed in Pokot where someone feels like they have Gold when they have shoes for their feet. I am feeling guilty and sad about not doing anything about this situation. I feel like we can do something about it. To read more about it and what I want to do with God’s help click HERE.
    We would like to gather some donations to help them. You can join us, if you can. It can be a little as $5-10 per child to get the Jiggers out and fit them with shoes, also try to find ways to improve their hygiene. Please share with your friends and keep them in your prayers. I am very broken right now. You can use this link to make your donation ASAP: Click HERE
The trip was very successful and a lot of things were accomplished according to God’s will. Thank you so much for everything and God bless.
