Change is coming

 Dearest   “Though the seasons change, your love remains,” this song by United Pursuit has been running through my head and encouraging my heart recently. We have been in America since the end of June after some intense ministry years in Kenya and we were supposed to return in a few weeks as per our itinerary.  God had other plans for our family as He always does.  Our kid’s passports expired while we were in Kenya, and we came back and send them in for renewal. It looks like it going to take a long time to be processed due to everything being behind due to COVID-19. The Lord has now led us to a new season and time to focus on the family. David started working at Mt. Rogers Community Service Board in Marion, VA as a Youth Case Manager. This is the same job he had when Lily and Levi were wee ones and we were living in Damascus, VA.    God has placed staff and leaders in Kenya to help Grace Family, the school (Grace Family Educational Centre), and the church (Grace Family Fellowship) while we are in more of a support role as we live in America. As we shared with you earlier Hillary graduated college and is now working at a place where paints chemicals are mixed and made. Christine is in classes trying to improve her grades for retaking high school exams to one day join nursing college. Sharon Jelagat is in Nairobi at a university studying Banking and Finance. Vincent, Ian, and Winnie Kiptoo completed high school and are still trying to figure out what they want to do next as they stay with family or relatives. Winnie Awino, Naomi, and Brenda are seniors, Dennis is a junior, Timothy and Victor Kirwa are sophomores while Gideon is a freshman in high school. Please keep them in your prayers that they would persevere, have faith, and finish well. Allan Kipchumba is in grade 6, Mercy Jerop is in grade 5 and Moses is in Grade 2. I can’t believe how much everyone has grown and been supported through the years by you! Thank you for helping them through prayers, financial support, and love for them when you visit or connect! We will send out another e-mail sometime soon concerning Grace’s Family needs and prayer. We just wanted to update you of our changes. God bless and talk to you soon
