Our Jeremy and wife, Penny along with their daughter and son-in-law have recently returned from the Widows' Farm and Kadawa. We have lots of photos. I'll update you on things bit-by-bit.
On Sept. 25 Tobias, our farm manger (Johnfred's half-brother) sent us a photo of folks planting the maize crop. For some reason, only a few came out, so it took two days to plant the field. We were praying for some good rain.
When Jeremy arrived on Oct. 8 he had a photo taken of the maize which was among the best of all the local farms. There was some proper rain while he was there and he took a photo 10 days later in the same spot. What a difference! Actually, it rained so fast & hard in Kisumu that there was a flood. Kisumu is about 20 miles from Kadawa and it is common to rain in town, but not in the village.
Finally, here is a photo of Rose's new house. The team went inside and prayed for the house and Rose, and gave her some gifts. The outside and inside walls aren't finished yet. They must thoroughly dry. Then the home group will come and help rose "plaster" it with a mixture of mud and some dung. It will be quite smooth.
We're sorry to say that all of the chickens caught a disease and died. Oh dear! It was a good effort.
We are so thankful to have Jeremy managing the farm and for Tobias, Eric, Leonard and Belinda operating it, and all the prayer and financial support from our friends and other loved ones.
God is good. We are blessed. The widows are blessed.
We bless you all!
