Building foundations are very rarely dug by hand in the United States of America, however in Kenya, Africa it is a common practice. The African men pictured here are digging the foundation for Tumaini Youth Center’s, highly anticipated Girls Dormitory. We are all very excited for the needy girls who will call this place home. This building will be a vast improvement to our current overly crowded facilities. It will boast 24 beds including 12 small but private rooms for the older girls and 6 shared (two beds per room) for the younger girls, as well as four shared bathrooms. The large common area will have multiple uses, it will serve as the dormitory’s living, dining and meeting facilities. At the center (heart) of the building, there will be Matrons apartment for Tecla, who is the care provider for all of these children. It will provide needed room for expansion as well as more privacy among the female orphans and staff members.
Greetings in Jesus name. I have attached some pictures for the digging of foundation of the new girl’s dormitory. The girls that we have at Tumaini Youth Center are greatly excited, as they currently are quite crowded. We of coarse are grateful as this facility will allow us to take in more female orphans. As you know we have had to turn some away. The work is going on very well. We continue to thank you so much for your prayers and support. Pastor Isaac has told us that you have been unwell. How are you feeling now? I think you had also mentioned in your previous email that your health has not been good. Our team at TYC is praying with you and hoping that our Lord will bring complete healing to your body. We will send more pictures again soon. Greet all for us.
Yours in Christ’s service,
