The piece of land we purchased not so long ago has been named – Shena’s Village (named after one of the founder members of Abigail Ministries (who most people know)).
The dedication service for the land was held on 20th February whilst three of the Trustees were in Kenya. It was a wonderful time. The land has been sub-divided into twelve plots and a section in the middle has been kept as a communal area. The twelve beneficiaries arrived at the service not knowing what they were about to receive. They all now have the gift of a plot of land where we will build them a permanent home.
We have been delighted to learn that four of the beneficiaries have become Christians as a result of the gift God has given through Abigail Ministries – all glory to Him!

Update 17th January 2013…
The Bakery was opened in May 2011 and has been a great success. The ladies have been working very hard and the transformation in their lives has been magnificent. They are happier and more fulfilled.
There were some problems with the firewood oven but an extension was built to accommodate an electric oven and other electric equipment, in order for the ladies to be even more productive with the more reliable equipment. Unfortunately, the installation has been delayed as there is a hold up with the delivery of electricity.
These things can take some time to overcome in Kenya but we wait and pray patiently, as do the ladies, for this hurdle to be removed to allow them to branch out even further.
