February 2013

Dear Friends,

Charity Pros is running an online auction for Suba Environmental Education of Kenya/ ministry of Kenya Islands Mission, Inc. !!!
Go to http://charitypros.com/?cat=74 The Auction runs from the 10th through the 18th of February. The proceeds will be used for ministry to the orphans and widows of Suba District, including their involvement in restoring the degraded environment and improving their communities with health, agriculture, reforestation, etc.. Charity Pros takes a small percent just to cover their costs. Crafts are already here in Tennessee.

Items of the auction include handcrafts from Margaret Nyangi’s Bananas of Hope Crafts and those from other artists. Margaret, a wonderful woman who did much to improve the plight of widows, died in November and this will be the last chance to purchase her classic crafts.

Also being auctioned is an afternoon guitar session given by John Carter Cash in his father’s, Johnny Cash’s, cabin recording studio in Hendersonville TN where many legends have played and many new artists continue to play with a backstage tour of the location and grounds.

A 4 Day Fishing Trip for four for Nile Perch and Tilapia on Lake Victoria from the luxury Rusinga Fishing Camp for June 2013. Guests will be staying at SEEK and going to the lodge each day for fishing, lunch and relaxing by the pool. Trip includes visiting local beaches and enjoying orphan presentations. This will be followed by a one night safari to the beautiful Nakuru National Park (below) home to millions of pink flamingo, who provide a breath taking sight as they take flight. Nakuru also is home to rhino, lions, giraffe, zebra, leopard, hippo, hyena, monkeys, baboon, many antelope species, wild pig, etc. A stay at one of Nairobi’s finest hotels and visits to crafts and places of note in Nairobi will end the trip.

The auction also provides a way to donate from $25 to $100.

COSTA RICA
Don and I have just returned from Costa Rica with a blessed time of working with Youth With A Mission, Heredia’s Environment and Resource Stewardship School. The students and staff in the school were wonderful, mature Christians, full of fun and devoted to God. It was a privilege to share there. We witnessed supernatural abundance from the gardens where organic farming techniques are being implemented.
Terry and Donna Keith, the leaders of that base, treated us so hospitably. They took us to Ballena Beach near Panama, located in a marine reserve, where jungle meets the brilliant blue of the Pacific. We were overwhelmed with the intricate detailing and amazing wisdom of our God in this part of His creation. Hermit crabs, howler monkeys, a whale and noisy parrots entertained us.

We thank God for the outstanding DTS team from YWAM Ozark Arkansas who have done much fruitful ministry at SEEK for the last six weeks. The staff report they were a great blessing. The team leaves this week.
