Dear family and friends,
After breakfast at the hotel, we started our day with a courtesy meeting with the village senior chief. He explained how government is structured in Kenya and recapped the improvements the SOHI projects have produced and the many positive effects they have had on the local community.
Then it was on to some first hand physical labor building bio-sand filters; later we observed them being delivered and installed. The weather was its typical warm 84-ish w humidity at 64 % whilst we were building the filters.
We were also able to see how SOHI is influencing agriculture by ‘Farming God’s Way’ – which is a “no tilling” method. The farmer who shared his experience with us told us he had a 3 fold yield increase compared to prior traditional method.
We were blessed with the skies opening for a very welcome, refreshing, cool, rejuvenating afternoon sprinkle….life giving water.
Some lucky team members were able to meet and visit their sponsored children.
Everywhere we went, we witnessed brilliant smiles and friendly greetings. The love of God is so freely shared and evident here.
It has been a long day. It has been a good day.
Please continue to remember us in prayer as we continue our vision trip.
