Your Generosity Has Done This...Part IV

This is Sarah our house-helper and her two children John (6) and Faith (2). Sarah has worked hard for many years with various missionary families to become an outstanding cook. I'm not sure how we became fortunate to have her with our family 3 days per week. She cooks delicious pizza, chicken curry, enchiladas, and potato soup with a joyful spirit.

Around Christmas time we asked Sarah if there was anything that would help out her family that would be sustainable. She indicated that she had always wanted electricity for her house but it was always too expensive to have the electric wire run to the house, the meter installed, and the house wired. The total cost was about 28,00 KSH (400 USD). But the month to month cost of paying her electric bill she could manage as it would be offset by the Kerosene for her lamp that she would not have to buy.

Sarah made the written application. She hired an electrician to wire her house. Her application to Kenyan Power was accepted after a few months. Thanks to your generous donations into our project account Sarah was able to pay the fee to Kenyan Power for electricity! She now has working electricity in her house for the first time.

I asked Sarah what was her favorite thing about having electricity. She said, "you know now we can spend more time outside in the garden while it is light, but I can cook dinner for our family at 8:00 PM (normal dinner time in Kenya) and see what I am doing. And also Jonathan doesn't have to remain after school, because now he can do his homework at home in the evenings under our light."

Sara wrote the following thank-you note to you...

We are pleased for your support, thank God for electricity. Before I was using candles and kerosene, of which would give little light. But now no more darkness! We can easily prepare food and the kids can do studies without problems. Thanks for a helping hand. You are great and to be blessed.

Thanks from: Joseph, Sarah, John, & Faith
