11 Jul Prayer Points 11th July 2018
Letter from Kindfund.
I know a lot of our friends and prayer partners in West will be aware that there is currently trouble at Ngaremara in Kenya, the headquarters of Kindfund and the location of one of our three children’s homes. This last three weeks there has been a battle going on between the police and the young men who look after goats, cows and camels. There has been gunfire regularly and on occasions it has been very dramatic and extended.
Kindfund Home (46 children and 15 staff) and HQ is 300 metres from the main road through the center of the village and and has been used as a refuge for women, children and some old men. Up to 70 people have been seeking refuge at night sleeping on the floor of our classrooms/dining. The staff have provided some mattresses from our store and more recently we have been giving porridge in the evening and in the morning as the conflict has dragged on. The Catholic Mission on the other side of the road from us is also a refuge for some. Pamela and Gillian along with two young men visiting from Fermanagh are there at the moment and are well and in good spirits although occasionally their movements have been restricted. The opportunity has been taken to engage the local population in praise and prayer for the situation and that has been much appreciated. Pamela is hoping to travel to our Wamba Home (85kms) today as part of the programme with the visitors. It would be helpful if you could pray for the Government and police to act justly,
