|Kitale Friends Graduating Class|
There are a few tasks before me this summer. I need to do some serious fundraising as my funds for this ministry are very, very low, such that I am unsure of receiving my salary in June and have not been reimbursed for about two months of ministry expenses.. There is a lot of interest in this work and the impact that it is having, and that needs to translate into financial support as well to allow it to go forward. So I will spend time speaking to churches and individuals who may have interest in this work to see if they are willing to join it. This is not my favorite thing to do, but a necessary component, which keeps me cognizant of how the body of Christ works together.

I also started working on my Masters in Business Administration in Sustainable Development and have been taking classes, with lots of readings and paper writing. I hope to work hard in these classes this summer, and gain more knowledge and education to apply to the development work that I have already been doing.

One event I'm looking forward to is Dr. Walker (founder and head of ICM USA) and Rev. Stephen Mairori (International Director of ICM, Kenya Country Director of ICM) will be coming to Grand Rapids to speak at Madison Square Church on Sunday, August 4 during the evening service and then having a chance to share about our work with ICM after the service with dessert. Hope you will be able to join us!
