When Kate gets it in her head to do something, it gets done. She raised money, found a piano, and had it delievered before Christmas.
I have a new series planned for the blog, The Changing Face of Missions, and things like buying pianos is part of that change. Why should we settle for just housing and feeding orphans? Why not create a life, a family, that is worth living and having? Sometimes all it takes to make a life wonderful is something as simple as spending money on a piano.
Soon these hands will start teaching our girls how to create music from this wooden box. I am positive they will love it. Several of them are musical, and they all love singing.
Thank you for those who gave to this effort, and those of you who help us to not only feed and house these children, but help us in crafting a hopeful future for them. (and us.)
By the way the piano is a Kawai, maybe 20 years old, a level one, and brown. All you other folks working with orphans here in Kenya, we bought it from Bol Pianos. Check them out. I know you can't afford to buy a piano, neither could we last week.
