You may have heard and read about the tensions and fighting going on in Kenya. As you may know we feel very connected to this country and have some dear friends living there.
We would like to ask your prayers for Daniel and Marlies Hoogteijling and their family and team, working in Kitale, not far from Eldoret, where some intense fighting has been going on. They are trying to evacuate the team to Nyahururu, a place much quieter right now. I (Reinier) have been to Nyahururu with a team from our church to work with the orphanage of Rueben and Miriam Warutere. They have adopted 6 orphans into their family and right now they are taking care of 22 families that have fled from different places.
Please pray with us that God would restore the peace in Kenya, and that there will be reconciliation soon. Pray for Daniel and Marlies and the team and the Warutere Family. Pray for protection as well as the perseverance to reach out and be a blessing to the nation, even in the midst of all this. If you would like to help in more practical ways, much funds are needed as Daniel and Marlies are trying to set up emergency help in Kitale and Reuben and Miriam are taking care of the 22 families. If you would like to make a donation, please contact us and we’ll try to help you do so.
