Our board president and founder, Mike Heid, returned in May from visiting our team inKenya, Africa. He was there to dedicate our new apartment building for the Tumaini Youth Center. The team in Kenya and our team here in Colorado are grateful to God and our donors for the completion of this project. The board of directors, and the staff in Kenya are excited about the upcoming years and how the Lord will guide our plans and efforts for continued support for the children at the center and the construction of a girl’s dormitory. To our donors and prayer support people, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all that you have done to help get these projects accomplished.
Greetings in Jesus name. We are doing well at Tumaini Youth center. We thank God for His faithfulness to us. Our children are doing well and all have reported back to school.
We are writing this letter to express our sincere heartfelt gratitude to you and the entire team that do pray and support our children.
Through your generous and love giving, the lives of children at TYC have changed greatly.Our children are able to learn smoothly and they are stable spiritually, healthwise and academically.
Your support of food, clothing, learning materials and the great task of the completed apartments have touched the heart of God. May our Almighty God bless you abundantly. Pass our regards to the entire supporting team.
Thank you brother for making an effort to visit us and spending time with all of us. Our children were happy to be with you. We are praying for you. Pray for us as staff and the Board to serve these children tirelessly for the Honor and Glory of God.

Yours in Christ,
Mike called this morning. He made it ok and is doing fine. He’s toured TYC. The apartments are 99% done—- still need some cleaning up before the dedication next week.
The trench for the wall is dug and 75% of the matl is in place. He meets with the Board next week.
The rainy season started yesterday and it’s coming in buckets.
I asked how his health is and he said “just ok” so let’s be praying for him.
I spoke with Pastor Isaac and he’s doing well— his stomach ailment is much improved.
Let’s all be in prayer for Mike and his visit. This trip was stressful for him– even for a seasoned traveler like himself. And The demise of Come Let’s Dance was a blow to him as he was planning on visiting them. It‘s a good reminder to all how the enemy seeks to destroy..
Our founder and director, Mike Heid, will be returning to Tumaini Youth Center in April of this year. Tumaini is located in Kitale, Kenya. He will be meeting with Tumaini staff members and pastors from surrounding churches. Most of his time will be spent with the orphans. He will also be documenting progress on all projects and taking pictures for the web page. If you want to contact him use the “Contact” tab at the top of our web site, www.aictyc.org. Please keep Mike in your prayers, as this is not an easy trip to make alone.
