Please pray for Gerald Munyao (age 12) in Nairobi Kenya. He suffers from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. He is having chest pains and trouble sleeping.
He requires medical care and attention asap. So we sent over $300 for his care.
According to the doctor he needs chest physiotherapy and a sperometer to strengthen his chest muscles. He also needs a brace for his spine as he is suffering from scoliosis.
His mother is Florence Syombua Wanjiku. They are very poor. We are doing what we can to help support them, including helping them start a restaurant business nearby to help them be self-sustainable.
Please pray for comfort and improved quality of life for Gerald. It is very hard for him right now.
We started taking care of Muhammad and his mum a few months ago. He is very young and has a severe case of Cerebral Palsy.
The doctor recommend increasing his care and treatment with the following…
Cp Chair – 100000
Pampers – 48800 size 6 15kg+
Mattress – 120000
Bedsheet – 20000
Blanket – 60000
Food – 50000
TOTAL: 398800 ($117)
We sent over the money for this. Please pray for him to respond well to treatment and for him to improve his ability to function.
The family is very poor and is hopeful that we can help them start a small business to help them become self-sufficient.
Florence Wanjiru is ready to open her barber shop! Florence’s 2 sons, Francis and Julius, have Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and they have been so poor.
BUT we have stepped in to help them make a life for themselves. The barber shop is first. Then their business will be expanding soon to also include a clothing shop.
Please pray for the grand opening which will be very soon. Florence is putting the finishing touch on a few things first.
I’m so excited for them! Julius & Francis & Florence are feeling great excitement too. Glory to God.
Sariete is a young lady who has been in real need for a long time. She fell from a tree 21 years ago and lost the use of her legs. She has gotten worse and worse and so our teammate Reine Damaris Kenmoe went to see her to find out her needs.
Sariete has been in the hospital for 5 months and the doctor asked for a wheelchair for her and an anti-bedsore cushion. She has been in the hospital of this time because of deep bedsore wounds. It has been very painful for her.
The Everett and Austin Project has purchased the wheelchair and anti-bedsore cushion and special mattress for Sariete.
Thank you everyone for your donations and prayers and support. Sariete and her family continue to need our prayers and support. She is not able to leave the hospital until these sores heal a little more.
Shanitah looks so happy about her new CP that she got today. The simpler one that we got her a couple of months ago wasn’t sufficient. She needed straps and other modifications.
This one is so pretty! Pretty in pink!
Thank you to all of you for your prayers and donations. Together we are making such a difference in Sub-Saharan Africa expressing Christ’s love for the poor and the weak. Bless you all.

I would like to get involved, in whatever small way I can…
Other than just with donations, how can one get involved?
