Chicken business feeds orphans in Kenyan village
From Steve DeMoss:
Below is an email from a pastor and his wife who discovered us through our website a year ago. I met them while I was in Kenya and gave them funding to start raising chickens. They have taken it and used it extremely well, by stretching it to begin a chicken business. They use the profits to support their small community of orphaned kids!
They have asked us to come and visit them whenever we travel through Kenya again to minister in their small community. They are very poor people and I am very impressed how they used these small funds and gave a fine account and documentation of their efforts to us. They are very dear people of God.
Hello my beloved brother in the Lord,
I hope and trust that you are doing well in the Lord. Actually we are doing well at Kitale and always praying for you and your family. I would love to know if brother Robert improved from sickness, because it is now some time when we don’t communicate, otherwise we could have got information about him. Joan, the children and the church are doing well and have greeted you so much, praying that God willing they love to meet you at Kitale next year. The chicken project is really doing well and with the little you gave us, we have moved a step. We are now selling eggs and male chickens to buy food for the orphans daily through this project. For now we are having 70 chickens and by December we shall have 100 of them. Out of this we shall sell 50 and remain with 50, and those will keep us running. From what you gave us in Nairobi, it was 38,000 ksh.
· We used 20,000 to improve the the structure of the chicken, this including materials and labour.
· We bought food for the chickens worthy 10000 ksh
· Drugs for the chickens 4000 ksh
· We used 3000 to purchase more chichen spieces to add on what we had.
· One thousand is still in the account.
This is how we spent the amount you gave us while in Nairobi. I have attached some photos of the project and Joan taking care. Please have a look at them. We really appreciated your kind help to us and the orphaned children. Thank you and may the Lord bless you and your family. Hope to hear from you as well.
Response from Brother John, mentioned above:
Great achievement! Reminds me of the parable of the talents…they were really diligent and God increased your gift many-fold. Wonderful. Thank you Lord.
