The Story

The Sengera House Orphanage is in need of help. All of our orphans came to us in the past few years from various cog church groups scattered around Kenya, church groups who could no longer care for these precious children after their parents died. They arrive at different times, but all arrived in the same condition, hungry (starving actually) wearing only the worn out clothes on their backs, scared, and out of school. Thanks to our Heavenly Father and the Agape Love that He bestowed in some in His church members (through their donations and offerings) all the children (17 in all) are now being well cared for with food in their bellies, clothes, and all enrolled in school. What a Blessing it has been for these precious children. But currently the orphanage is having some difficulties. The Kenya Government (in the interest of the orphans who are being cared for throughout the country) has imposed some requirements on all orphanages. We have complied to most of what they have required, but are now being informed That we need a few additional things like a cafeteria (currently all of our children are eating together in the sitting room of the house, with some standing as they eat, due to lack of enough chairs or even enough room to put them.) we are also being required to install better security of the compound, including a metal entrance gate and better fencing or wall to protect against intruders. They also want some tiles installed in the bathrooms (a requirement we were already aware of, but lacked the funds to accomplish it.) brethren, if you can possible assist these precious church orphans, please help in this situation, because we are being threatened by the Government here that if we don't comply soon, they will close the orphanage down.

We are still hoping to reach our goal and complete this project. The chikdren are using the cafeteria, but we still need to finish the top of the third table. And still need to plaster  the outside of the building with concrete.

Greetings Brethren, hope all of you are doing well.  At the orphanage in Sengera, we had a visit from the police today. As usual they treated Haron (the overseer) quite rough, complaining that we haven't finished complying with their demands of the improvements they have required. Most of what they are requiring we have completed. But still have to plaster the outside walls of the cafeteria, and tile the girls bathroom. They took Haron to the Ogembo police station, but fortunately did not lock him up this time. He is okay and back home but shook up. The progress we have made so far, has been very good, but it set us back financially. And besides funding the improvements, we also just paid the tuition fees to put the 17 orphans back in school.  If you can possible help us to complete this project, it will be highly appreciated. The police are threatening us to complete.
Your brother in Christ bill Goff.

Greetings everyone, as you can see from the photo gallery, we continue to make progress on the cafeteria at the orphanage. We have now completed the construction of all three tables & benches, with only one still in need of its plywood top. The children are so happy and thankful to all of you for providing for them such a wonderful place to sit and eat their meals. We have almost completed the construction, but still need to install the glass in the windows, purchase and apply the plywood top on the remaining table and benches, and plaster the outside of the building with cement. We have also reduced the goal needed to complete this important project, and hope to reach it soon. School started on January 2nd for the elementary level children, and all are doing well. Two of the boys are hoping to begin High School this week. We want to thank all of you who have been helping these orphans, may the Almighty Father bless each and everyone of you. bill Goff
