It became obvious over a period of time, that the old mud hut of the mother of Jerry and Anna needed a replacement. It was in a very bad shape.
Then recently, anytime during day and night, strangers broke into the “house” and stole from the mother that had so little anyways. When we heard, that she even was raped one night, it was enough for us. A new hut must be build and quick!
After consultation with Eunice, the leader of our childrens home, we immediately transfered € 1.000,- for building a new hut. This covered the whole project. A few days later the hut was already completed. The mother is so happy and grateful for the support.
By the way, the break ins have stopped, and the man, who raped here, has been caught and is now spending time in prison for his crime.
Eunice visits the mother of Anna and Jerry regularly. They have built a garden together, where she grows her own vegetables.
Thank you so much and may God bless you! To all, who support Nazareth by prayer and donations.

Today I would like to report my second journey to Kenya and about the visit in our childrens home.
I took my flight on 29.12.2019 from Amsterdam to Nairobi.
After arriving in Nairobi I flew to Kisumu. On 30.12.2019 I’ve landed in Kisumu.
The home-mother Eunice and my godson Bernard collected me at the airport with a matatu. It was a big suprise and joy for me that Bernard was also there. For him it was the first trip to Kisumu and he was amazed of everything.
We went all together to the supermarket for shopping. At lunch, I invited everyone to a meal before we started our journey back to Rangwe.
As we arrived at Samsons and Eunice home everyone welcomed me. Our leader of the association and Michael from from Switzerland were already there.
We enjoyed our evening in the childrens home. During this time we had a camp with all homebased-children and children from the neighborhood from 28.12.2019 till 010.01.2020. Samson gave us a preaching an I introduced myself.
On the next day there were football games between children of Nazareth and different schools from midday till evening. It have played four teams.
In the afternoon I could visiting my parent family with Eunice. I’ve given them my gifts and the mother and children were very happy about it.
Due to the reason we had new years’s eve the children were dancing with music. Afterwards we were dancing with music. Afterwards we were sitting all together at the bonfire. My godchild Bernard was also with me and it was an unforgettable time as well as a special turn of the year for me.
On the first day of the year took place a preach in the morning.
After the preach our homebase-children went home.
One day later we went to the next biggest city to Homabay to buy food. After this we drove to Samsons birth place to Lambwe to visit his family. We also wanted to see our fontain which we have built there. We have visited poor families to give them food which we bought in Homabay. After that we could enjoy a meal in the church. As a present we received a chicken which we gave Samson and Eunice. After arriving in Rangwe we got invited for eat dinner from Yunis.
We also visited poor families in the bush to bring them food parcel together with Eunice. As well we met little Adrian and his family. Adrian is doing well after his treatment (check on the Nazareth website) and the parents were very thankful and happy.
One day later we ate the last meal together with Michael and listened to a preach.
Michael flew back on the next day. Eunice and Markus took him to the airport in Kisumu.
The new Nazareth kindergarten has started in the beginning of January with the baby class.
From day to day new children were joining the play school. As long as the new building is not finished the children are going to erudite in the new guest house where two teachers are employed.
In the evening we cooked al together Pizza and the children had a lot of fun.
On a Saturday morning we had “happy breakfast” in our childrens home.
We also visited another childrens home next to Rangwe which is called “Ebenessa” and we distributed candy. The children were very happy about our visit.
It was amazing to experience the african church service with the singing and clapping. Also to see the sunday school.
On the 12.01.2020 was our farewell dinner in the childrens home.
It was hard to say goodbye.
Markus and me where taken to the airport in Kisumu.
After visiting the touristic market we have have eaten a meal together.
Afterwards we took our flight to Nairobi. From Nairobi we flew to Amsterdam on the next day and forward to Germany. We have landed saftely in Germany.
It was a special journey and a wonderful time in Kenya, but the time went very fast.
Kanyaluo is located about 20km northwest from Rangwe in the deep bush. In this area is common that it have regulary dry-seasons which makes impossible to grow vegetables and corn. Due to long-lasting dry-seasons is the harvest of corns since around 3 years not enough for the villagers. During the dry-season dominates the lack of water, especially clean drink water.
For the villagers it’s every day a big fight to get clean water. It’s always a long way to the next standpipe. To organise the drink water is mostly the job of the children and the woman.
In order that the human are able to get clean water around and to grow vegetables, decided the management and the club members at the last general meeting that we are going to build a fountain for the whole village.
The depth and the cost aren’t 100% known at the moment, due to the fact that the nature of the ground and the effort of the work aren’t established so far. However we calculate with costs in amount of 15.000 Euro (for the borehole, daw, water pipes, water pump, solar panel, pole, water tank, personnel costs).
To sponsor the villagers we want to start to build as soon as possilbe.
With your donations are you going to give the people hope, and a very good perspective to build a future for their families. Because water means life!!!
Like the verse says: “I want to give to the thirsty from the source of living water for free”.
We keep you updated about the process of the foundraising and the building of the fountain on our homepage.
