The Approach of Christmas 2018

November 2, 2018

Dear Faithful Supporter:

During this Thanksgiving season, I want to thank each of you for your continued support to the 200 children in Nairobi, Kenya and to the 60 children in Inez, Kentucky in the Hollows. Due to donations designated to construction projects in both Kenya and Kentucky, we were able to replace a bathroom at Homecoming Church in Inez, KY (see pictures below) and we were able to build a wall to provide needed protection to the children at Hope Academy in Nairobi,

Kenya. A team of three volunteered their time and worked from 8am to 1 am for six days straight in order to replace a bathroom with a floor that was ready to collapse at the Homecoming Church.

In Kenya, we were able to employ 15 workers from different tribes in order to build a wall that provided the students protection from outsiders. This job enabled these men to be able to provide food for their families in exchange for their hard work of digging into rock and stone to create a foundation

for the wall, as well as build the wall itself. The wall runs the length of the entire school and church. The construction of the wall is complete, but it still needs to be painted in compliance with the Nairobi city codes.

As the Christmas season approaches, our organization is already in prayer for the children and families that depend on us for any type of Christmas blessing. I am asking for you to give deeply and help create a special Christmas miracle for these children. Please help us once again provide a Christmas meal for the 200 children that attend Hope Academy and their families.

Also, help us provide food and small gifts for the 60 children in Calf Creek Hollow. We also need donations for support for these children in the upcoming year. Thank you in advance for your help and your donation. Please know that I am always appreciative of any size gift that you can give. Thanks again for making the Christmas season a special time for these children. Without you, these children would have nothing.

Sincerely Yours,

Marsha Grahek, President
