I was overjoyed to be given the opportunity to return to
Kenya and visit the Bryce Homes widows and orphans. I was
able to take with me my daughter, Olivia and niece,
Elizabeth. It was meaningful to see the widows and orphans
through the girlís eyes for the first time. Livís and
Lizzyís lives will never be the same.
We met with all 35 of the Bryce Homes. It was such a
blessing to see them and hear their testimonies of Godís
Love and Faithfulness to them. They are so grateful for
everything that has been provided for them. Every widow
starts her testimony by saying: Without God and the
generosity of Bryce homes and the Bryce Homes supporters,
they would be dead. They are all so thankful to God for the
help they have received. God is at work in their hearts and
they help out their neighbors that have a worse situation
than they do.
Kenya has been hit very hard by inflation since 2019. The
cost of living was hard for them then; it is much worse now.
I get pictures every month of the food deliveries. In 2019
they were receiving a large bag of maize, a couple 3 lbs
bags of rice, lentils, soap and a large jug of cooling oil.
Now they are receiving about 1/3 of what they were getting
for the same amount of money. There are thousands of people
in Kenya that are not getting enough food to eat right now.
I was introduced to so many needy widows that are desperate
for help. It breaks my heart to see. The needs are so great
we could never look after all of them but we can help a few.
I am so thankful for your generous support that keeps the
Bryce Homes program going.
Lovenda. She has four children. Her request was for
continued support and health.
Uneeu looks after four small children that sleep on the dirt
floor. She makes sisal rope but her fingers are too old and
swollen to make the rope tight, so she does not get a good
price for it. She is quite elderly and walks with a limp and
a cane. She is so thankful for Godís provision through Bryce
Homes support so she can feed the children.
Janett has an aggressive skin condition that causes growths
that canít be removed, or they grow back bigger and faster.
She has requested help to start a small business: selling
tomatoes and fish. She has a few children and is concerned
about how she will pay school fees.
Mary is 14 years old. Her mother was in Bryce Homes but has
recently passed away leaving Mary an orphan. She is a very
bright young lady and is praying that God will open a way
that she can continue her schooling. She dreams of one day
being a surgeon.
The roads were very muddy so we couldnít make it to each
individual home so the widows gathered to meet us in groups.
They were overjoyed that God would send us to meet and
The balloon dog is always a big hit!
Isaiah 1:17 ďLearn to do right! Seek justice, encourage
the oppressed. Defend the cause of the fatherless, plead the
case of the widow.Ē
Please pray for and continue to support the widows and
orphans in Kenya. Their lives are made richer and their love
for Jesus and each
