One of the saddest stories one can tell happened to a widow lady we are in connection with in Kenya. She had gone to visit her sister, and a storm came through her village and a tree fell on her temporary house. It didn’t do very much damage, but when she hired a person to repair the damage, he died in the effort by falling from the roof. That evening, some village people came and totally destroyed her home, claiming she had sacrificed this worker to fix her house.
Having no money, no income, and no family to draw from, she moved into a chicken house. And there she has been since April of this past year. When we heard of her plight, we wanted to help her build a temporary home -but then decided to believe God for bigger and build her a nice permanent structure.
So far, we have finished the foundation, the floor, and the walls. We have yet to put up the roof, put in the windows and doors, plaster the walls and install flash doors. We would also like to provide her with Solar power so she can have power as well.
We estimate the total to get the house to where she can live in it to be about $4,500.00. We are wanting to raise $5,000.00 to insure we have enough to finish this project.
Right now, we are taking each phase as a step. We are wanting to do the next phase of raising the roof. We need timber, iron sheets, nails and labor to do this next phase. The estimated amount will be at $1,800.
After to completion of the roof, we will install the windows and doors. This project will bring the house to the place where the widow can at least move in, even if the finishing is not yet done. The cost of this phase we estimate to be $1,500.00.
Please stand in faith with us as we continue to assist those who are in need! We will update as we complete each phase!!
