Jim and Curt are in Africa

By April 22, 2016March 27th, 2023No Comments

Curt Mader and I (Jim Allen) are in Kenya.  We are spending the evening at Pastor Benard Ondeik’s home. Today, we visited the orphanage in Ahero that he started just a few years ago.  They have 80 live-in orphans and they serve about 400 orphans in total.  I must admit, it is difficult.  So much need in this place.  I asked Pastor Ondeik if the children had enough food.  “No, they don’t.  Our children are hungry.  But, we need clean drinking the most.  Please bring us drinking water.  How soon can you come back”.  So much hunger!  Hunger for food.  Hunger for drinking water.  Hunger for education.  Hunger for justice.  Tonight, sitting in his home of 12 children, many adopted, the kitchen table is covered with books as the children study math.  No air conditioning.  “They study all of the time.  This is their hope and promise for change and for a bright future.  Laughing… giggling… doing math.  Can you imagine?
