Greetings for 2023 from our Faith share friends in Mathia Kenya. Great Joy is reported from Mathia as rain arrived in mid-December. New hope for crops to grow again since food has been scarce with prices very high. Rain was short lived !
Before New Year the church held a “Children’s Ministry” when Sunday School teachers were dedicated into Mathia Church.  They also celebrated a founder church member’s birthday of 105 years.
Grateful thanks to our Maxwelltown West members who again supported our Christmas Bursary Appeal; “God Bless You” from the students.
In January this year our World Church Team Treasurer sent £2,000 for the students and £500 for the children who are most needy. A letter received very recently from student Lawrence Gathinji giving “esteemed gratitude” on behalf of the students for our continued support. They are all back at University now. I asked him if he could find time to let us know the subjects this year’s seven students are studying, and how many will graduate in 2023.
PS. Sad news of the death of Lucy Merangi, the wife of James who visited us; some WCT members stayed with
them in Mathia. A donation was sent to James recently in her memory. We continue to pray for them and send them God’s blessings.
