Hope Foundation - Love and Kindness are NEVER wasted!

Presenting New Pre-Primary Class

Good News Academy is happy to welcome our new 4 year olds to school. It is always exciting to see these little ones come to school on their first day.  Our teachers are so patient with them as they learn their schedules and get just a little bit homesick for Mom.  Because of your love and kindness, we get to not only educate these children but we get to share Jesus with them for the very first time.  Thanks  so much - you are the BEST!

Exciting News

We had a report that angels were singing in Heaven!  What I am trying to say is that 2 people have already accepted Christ as their Savior in 2020.  We set a goal of seeing 150 people become believers in Jesus so we are on our way.  Please keep our teachers and pastors in prayer as they continually witness to folks that need forgiveness which comes only through the GOSPEL.

Life Change Church in Des Moines, Iowa is praying with us about providing a church building for one of our rural pastors.  We are so thankful for Pastor Steve Christiansen and Craig who flew to Kenya to visit me and see the ministry.  We are looking forward to partnering with your church this year to see a young church start off right.

We have started planning our Pastor Training Sessions for 2020.  I always enjoy meeting and teaching these pastors from all over the coast of Kenya.

Pressing Needs
I need to let you all know of a pressing need.  The well at our high school collapsed so we are having to bring in water each day for the 300 + students who come to school each day especially the 150+ female students who live in the dormitory on campus.  This is our second well at the school to collapse.

We are being told that we need to put in a borehole instead of a well due to the type of soil in our area.  This was an expense that was not in the budget for 2020.  It is estimated to cost $4500 to construct the borehole plus an additional $500 for piping, tanks, etc.  We have a need to raise $5000.  If you would like to help with this project click below, fill out the form and hit submit.

If you would rather give by check, make out your check to The Hope Foundation of Kenya and mail it to:
The Hope Foundation of Kenya
P.O. Box 8154
West Chester, OH 45069
Make sure to write High School Borehole in the memo line.

Thank you for your consideration and prayers.

Faithfully Yours,
Bobby and Lisa Bechtel
