Our deadline is upon us! Tumaini Children's Home family must move to our new location!

God is so, so Good! He will see what he has begun finished.
This is our new Tumaini Children's Home in progress!
We must move in before December 1, 2017

The house sits on the top 2nd acre of ten beautiful acres. The 1st acre we have dedicated to a prayer and worship garden. This is the front of the house and looks down the full length of the farm.

The homes full structure is completed, windows and doors are being placed now. Upper floor perlins also being set.

The home has 8000 sq feet, 2 separate wings for Boys and Girls bedrooms and bath - toilet areas, guest rooms, large kitchen, dining and setting room that you see here. 

The sitting room has a large fireplace, because Kenyan homes do not have heating.

and we love the fireplace!

The kids had to see what was up the chimney, of course!

Most of the walls will be left natural stone but some must be plastered and painted, this is inside the boys wing, where the t…

What an amazing life we get to live!

This is the new Home of Tumaini Children still in progress! We are so grateful for all the donations of work hrs, finances and prayer that have come in to see our children get a new home. Please continue to pray, we are only half done,and we still have our deadlines.  God has given us so much Grace, instead of May being the deadline to have our registration completed ( meaning we must be all moved in ) we have until Sept. But each month we pay huge lease payments and the elections are coming in August. We really do need to get the house finished! But again God provides each and every month because of your prayers, we know this is why! Please continue to Pray!

We are so blessed with the life we live here! Tumaini children are no different from any other children, they have their up and down days but all in all the joy, laughter and just plain goodness that our family has is amazing. We continue to Praise God for it all! Thank you for  being  part of God's work here in Kenya.

Our Home at Ruach Farm - God is Glorified

The Home of our beautiful Tumaini Children

As you can see the house is going up and we are all so thankful and excited.

Thank you everyone who has been involved to get us this far. Please continue to pray for the building to continue and we can get moved in before certain deadlines. The roof structure and roofing will go on before the end of March and then there are bedrooms and bathrooms, kitchen and every other to finish. If you have a desire to help finish any of these rooms please let us know and we can give you particulars on how to do this.
And please, Kenya truly needs our many prayers for our elections coming up in August. We are all hoping and praying to see it come off with out the violence we experienced in 2007 - 2008.

Love and blessings from all of us here at Tumaini.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
James 1:2-4 " My brethren, count it all as joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing."
This wonderful word has meant so much to our Kenyan family these last few weeks of 2016 and into the beginning of 2017.  
We have struggled through some trials but God is so faithful!  His presence brings our joy, no matter what is happening around us! He is here!!!!!
At the beginning of 2016 we were told it would be a year of great progress and abundance! It was definitely that and so many reading this blog were God's great instruments of this abundance and progress  through finances, encouraging visits and words and most of all the prayers that you have surrounded us with! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
We have counted it all as such joy! 
November brought us to our 6th closing ceremony for S…
