Hello family and friends, we pray that you are doing well in the Lord. We and Grace family are doing well in Lord in Kenya and also the ministry in general. God has done a lot and answered prayers. We continue to strive to raise a generation of orphaned and needy children who will grow up to reach their God-given potential as well as partnering with first-world citizens to help us in service at home and abroad.
We have an emergency financial burden that we wanted to share with you. We kindly request your support as God leads. The children start another school year on January 6th and school fees are needed to be paid on or before January 6th. It is about $650 yearly per teenager for boarding high school and about $200 per teenager to get started in high school- uniform, bedding, utensils, books, etc. School fees are also needed for colleges and trade schools. We have 8 children in high school, one in college, 2 will possibly join college or trade school. Our Christmas gift is schools.
We are also in need of additional chairs for the church. Our Grace Family Fellowship grew and we are running out chairs during church services. We have also been having a big turnout during our revival and overnight fellowship. We had over 500 people during this past week's overnight revival fellowship. It cost $10 per chair and we need to purchase about 400 chairs and 100 children's chairs. Yes, so many financial needs but we know God will provide, as He always does. We thank you for how you rise up to help and give as God leads you.
We continue to have various mission trips to unreached communities. We just had a team from Roanoke, Virginia who assisted in the medical outreach program, the building of the community bridge and various educational programs. We are expecting another team from the world race by January 4th.
Please keep us in your prayers as the group leaders meet to first work through our hurts, habits, and hang-ups. God has also given me regular preaching opportunities in various churches, hosting crusades, overnight prayer gatherings, and many opportunities to share the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. Let’s partner together for this work God has given us. Please join us! You can send a check to: GOGCP- David and Laurel Cheromei, 191 Rocky Hollow Rd.
