Christmas 2022 Greetings
Dear my friends and co-workers in the Lord:
Receive very warm Christmas greetings from all of us here at En-Gedi Home! As we all enjoy the beauty and the reason for Christmas, I want to give glory and honor to our Lord God for His faithfulness in being with us through the year. He has protected, provided, guided and remained present with us all through. The year has been challenging in many ways ranging from the effects the Covid 19 pandemic, Russia/Ukraine war, effects of climate change causing flooding, droughts, fires, etc. all over the world.
Our country – Kenya has experienced the worst draught in half a century, but by God’s grace, we have survived and we are able to intercede for those affected by such catastrophes. We are also very grateful to God for peaceful national political elections that took place in August. Looking back, we can affirm God’s promises for us as in Isaiah 41:10 “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God, I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand” If you are reading this letter, may you be encouraged that this far God has been your Ebenezer as He has been to us.
Christmas time means family get-together, exchanging gifts with friends and gifting those who are underprivileged – the homeless, the orphans and the widows, the disabled, the sick, the
imprisoned, among others.
En-Gedi, though limited in our abilities, also celebrate as a family with our children, caregivers and we invite willing parents and guardians of our children to join us on December 25 to thank God with us and to share a meal together. In our own small ways,
we are also able to gift others like us and help them celebrate the joys of the season. May you also enjoy a celebratory Christmas season.
We are closing the year with 24 children whose home is En-Gedi and working with many other parents
whose children we are not able to take in. We thank God that all our children have enjoyed a very healthy and happy year. The next couple years our focus expands towards building more local sustainability of En-Gedi ministry by investing income generating projects.
Please accept our appreciation for your continued prayers, financial and material support, visitations and correspondence in all ways. You have encouraged us and we thank you for being one in our En-Gedi family. As you celebrate this Christmas, may the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus; may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace not just now, but in the new Year and throughout your life.
Merry Christmas & a very happy New Year!
In His service,
