Being a kid is hard. Its hard in any country you are in, but especially difficult in a third world country. The pressures and responsibilities of kids here are vastly different than those of the majority of kids in their families needs. The most pressing need for familys is school fees. School is not free and if you dont have the money to pay, you dont go to school. If you dont go to school, your chances of finding a job are very slim. Schools can cost as little as $100 per year, but that is often way more than a family can afford. Most barely make enough for food. So imagine being faced with the stress of sending five kids to school. The kids feel the stress as much as the parents do. We recognize how hard life is here for the youth. We also realize they need help to get through it all. Most of all they need the Lord. So, in an effort to reach out to these kids, well be hosting a weekend youth camp the last weekend in August.

the US. Here, from a very young age, kids are expected to help in their household. Its common to see a five year old carrying around their six month old sibling and taking care of them while their parents work. A child as young as two or three may walk long distances to collect water for their family. An eight year old may start the fire and cook morning tea and porridge for the family and cook rice and beans in the evening Teenagers often work to help support

Our desire is that they meet Jesus that weekend and commit to a life that honors him and makes a difference in their house and communities. Life is hard, but its so much better with God. Pray for us as we prepare for this weekend. Ask God to use us and speak to their precious hearts. Love, The Orwas

For God to work through the medical outreach camp in Kenya. Also for patience and flexibility as Eli goes with us, that he does well when out of his routine.

For the leaders of Africa Harvest of Hope, Alan and Shannon Reed as they raise funds for the orphanage stateside.

Ministry Opportunity
We are excited to be going to Kenya in the beginning of August. Even while God has us in Tanzania, we still look for opportunities to serve in Kenya, Georges home country. This time, we will be helping in a medical camp set up in a rural area, serving those who may not have the resources to seek medical attention. We met the leader of the ministry last year after being connected by mutual friends from the US. He and the team coming are from Southern California. They have done this before and expect to see over 1500 people. Not only will those people receive the medical help they need, they will also get a chance to hear the gospel as well. This type of ministry is right up our alley and we are honored to help them out. George will be working as the lab technologist and I will help out as much as I can while looking after Eli.

Preparations for the upcoming weekend youth camp.

For favor as we search for the land for the orphanage.

Reaching Out
Things are going well at Yesu Anaweza. Georges discipleship class is going great. They are almost finished with the book of James. Stacies womens group is going strong as the ladies are learning to open up. Its also important to us to help out with the physical needs of the people around us. As our monthly support grows, we are able to do that more and more. We have been able to do home visitations and leave them with a small gift. Next week we are going to

We want the congregation to stay and spend time talking with each other and growing as brothers and sisters in Christ.
