God is Love
Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him.
1 John 4:7-9
Recently the Kenya Ministry of Education partially reopened schools. Originally, we thought all the students would be returning, but they decided to begin with just the 4th grade, 8th grade and high school seniors.
For Uzima, that means eight children have returned to school while the majority of the kids remain for homeschooling. For those who have returned, they are excited to be back in the classroom and to see old friends. For those remaining, we shall continue homeschooling until we know more. It’s possible they will ask more grades to return to school, but if the Covid numbers jump they might decide to fully close again.
Regardless of what happens, we are thankful for God’s grace upon the home; the children have remained healthy, and we have staff who are doing a great job of adapting and learning how to homeschool. Also, we want to thank you for your support during this time, as school fees and needs can be quite expensive.
We thank God the new round of tomatoes are growing nicely.
It’s exciting to see the Uzima shop is doing well.
Due to Covid, we haven’t been able to meet with the rehabilitation clients as often. That said, our staff have done a wonderful job of ministering to the clients with home visits and regular check-ups for those who have started small business. We do, however, meet corporately at least once a month to encourage one another in the Word, and provide some basic food supplies.
Although most of the clients have faced hardships and temptations, many of them have remained strong and continue to walk with Jesus. For this, we can only thank God, because His love for them has been most evident.
Thank the Lord with us for His grace upon Uzima Outreach.
Thank God with us for protecting the children, staff and clients from the virus.
Please join us in praying for school fees provision, and God’s will to be done regarding full opening.
Thank God with us for the staff of Uzima Outreach for faithfully serving to the best of their abilities.
Continue to lift up the rehabilitation clients in your prayers - that they grow more and more in their faith and continue to walk in victory.
Lastly, pray for Godly wisdom for our leadership.
