Urgent request for funds

Everyday the Bishop is receiving call that the people including the pastors in the Turkana, Samburu and Marsabit regions are without food. This relates to several factors including lack of rain and post-election violence which caused a decrease in food production. The arid areas are the most effected because they already had an issue with water and violence before the recent food shortage. We received a call yesterday from Pastor Hilbo in Marsabit that the situation is desperate – a lack of water and food. Normally they have a cup of water a day and now they don’t have that. Yesterday Pastor Hilbo walked 25 kilometers looking for water and did not find any. He was calling us for prayers. Also Vickie Winkler, HEART our partner for bed-nets told me she has almost a 1000 nets for us!! Remember in Kenya: 1. Over 25 million Kenyans are at risk of malaria 2.Malaria is the number one killer of children 3. 34,000 children under five die annually from malaria 4. Malaria represents 30-40% of outpatient visits at health facilities and 19% of hospital visits 5. Malaria represents a signigicant economic burden with an estimated 170,000 million working days a year lost to malaria illness We can take the nets to Turkana which will help save lives and assist the pastors in reaching people through humanitarian outreach which helps witness to them and bring them to Christ. Andrew, Partners for Care social worker in Turkana said this about the bed-nets we took before – We have experienced the church growing in numbers due to the net-distribution. The Turkana people expressed gratitude to God for the provision of the nets. We are urgently asking for your help right now. Ways you can assist: 1. Pray for rain in Marsabit and other arid parts of kenya 2. Financially support transporting the bed-nets to the Turkana region 3. Send money for food for Turkana and Marsabit region Donations can be made to: Partners for Care PO Box 1005 Carrollton, GA 30112 All the funds will go to help with the above issues. Let us not grow weary of doing good for in due time we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Therefore as we have opportunities let us do good to all especially to those who are of the household of faith. Galatians 6:9-10 Blessings, Connie Sent via Cingular Xpress Mail with Blackberry
