Welcome back to our blog.  We hope you had a wonderful Christmas and we would like to wish you a happy new year. On today’s Photo Friday post we want to share photos from Bringing Hope to the Family’s and Action Ministry’s Christmas experiences with you. Here we go…

From Uganda:836 - Home Again Christmas Meal 1Christmas at Home Again is such an exciting time! The feast! The games! The fun!

836 - Home Again Christmas Meal 2More feast!

836 - Home Again Christmas Tug-o-warNo Home Again Christmas party would be complete without Tug-o-war!

From Kenya:

841 - AM Christmas meals 6Thanks to our wonderful allies we were able to raise the funds needed to provide all 42 families within Blessed Camp with a Christmas feast!

841 - AM Christmas meals 1

841 - AM Christmas meals 3

841 - AM Christmas meals 5Most families in this community survive on begging. During the Christmas week the streets are empty and these families usually struggle to make it through the week.  Action Ministry provided them with enough food to last several days.

841 - AM Christmas meals 7Through the sharing opportunity that these gifts presented 3 residents of Blessed Camp accepted Jesus as their savior! Now that is Christmas at its best!

We want to thank everyone who helped provide the children at Home Again and the residents at Blessed Camp with a wonderful and joyous Christmas. Thank you!

 


It’s the final Friday before Christmas and we hope everyone is doing well.  This time of year is generally a happy time, but it can certainly get hectic. Knowing that your probably busy, we want to thank you for taking the time to join us for this volume of Photo Friday. All of this week’s photos come from Kenya.  We hope you enjoy.

From Kenya:

Momo Bakari traveled to India last week with her son for her brain tumor operation.  Thanks to many generous donors we were able to assist Action Ministry in funding Momo’s trip and surgery costs. Action Ministry believes that this is a wonderful opportunity to share Christ’s love with this family and their community.

photo 5Last week, Peter, James and Jimmy (a Blessed Camp resident) returned from a week long Christian leader’s conference in western Kenya. The guys had a great time and Peter had the opportunity to be one of the guest speakers as well.

A few months back Know Think Act raised funds for Maurice’s knee surgery. Maurice had been in a car accident and was in need of an operation.  Maurice’s surgery was successful and here he poses with Peter.

We are excited to see all of the great reports from Action Ministry. God is good and great things are happening! We hope you have a great weekend and a very merry Christmas.

Happy friday from all of us at Know Think Act! Today the Sasser’s are heading to Nairobi before flying stateside for a visit.  But, not to worry, our Photo Friday posts and other blog posts will continue to go up as we continue to receive updates from our on-the-ground partner’s who continue to serve their communities day in and day out.

Now on to this week’s posts…

From Uganda:

322 - (Latrine) Windows-glassThe windows have now been installed in New Hope Vocational School’s classrooms and female dormitory.

Happy Friday one and all! The weekend is almost here as we continue to inch our way closer to Thanksgiving and the rest of the holiday season. As with every Friday post, we would like to highlight a few of our favorite photos from the past week.

This week, unfortunately, we do not have any photos from Uganda as our partner, Bringing Hope to the Family, had been without electricity for over a week. Sending updates and photos proves to be a little challenging without power. There was a time last year when they were out of power for 2 months as their village was awaiting the arrival of a new transformer.  Thankfully, that is not the case this time and their power has now been restored.

For now we will focus on our photos from Kenya:

IMG_2426Tumaini, a high school student from Blessed Camp, stopped by Mwanasiti’s house and spoke with the team for a while.

Abejei, Mwanasiti’s husband, took some time to speak with the team as well.

We hope you enjoyed this week’s Photo Friday post.  Have a great weekend!
