Over the past few years, Johnny and I have always kept our eyes opened for the place where we can build future homes for orphans with house parents. A place large enough to have a garden that can feed all of us especially when money is tight. A place that has enough water for a large number of people and enough space to add small homes for single mothers and for those in the late stages of HIV/AIDS so they can be surrounded by those who can love them and also not have to worry about rent. It needs to have a house already on it so we could move there with our kids and oversee everything.
Finding such a place in an overcrowded country is nearly impossible. Land is expensive and hard to come by. But just a few weeks ago, out of the blue, a friend came by and said, "Kate, our ministry is selling the Rescue Center. It's 5 1/2 acres of land with a house, a multipurpose hall, and a very productive water well. You should look at it."
My eyes lit up. I just knew this was a divine opportunity. I told Johnny about it, but he didn't want to even look at it because we didn't have any money to buy it. I told him that we should just look at it in faith. There's no harm in looking!
So I looked at the property and took some photos of it. You can check them out if you like here. It's got everything we need for where we are now and lots of room to expand into where we want to be in the future.
After talking to Johnny about the property, someone offered to buy Johnny an air ticket to the USA to help us spread the word about what we are doing here in Kenya!
We are very excited, and we believe God is opening doors for us to help even more people than we currently reach.
Please be in prayer about this. I know that God is more than able to make a way!
