Dear Beloved in Christ,
Receive Christmas greetings in the wonderful name of our Lord and Savior, Christ Jesus. By His grace we are doing well and wish to thank you all for your continuous prayers and support. We are indeed thankful to the Lord for His faithfulness throughout the year. It is due to His faithful provisions that we have reached where we are today. We cannot thank you enough for your part in what the Lord is doing here. May the Lord richly reward your labor of love as you create an impact in the lives of so many here in the mission field.
We thank you so much for your Christmas gift for the children and the work here in Kenya. May the Lord do the increase.
Again and again we are reminded that the field is ripe but harvesters are few. As we make ourselves available we deeply appreciate partners like you who make such a call a reality.
As a family we are doing well and do prepare for an added responsibility as we look to the New Year with more children joining high school. With increased cost of living the fees has almost doubled. We surely need to depend on the Lord to enable us send them back to school. Besides there are new ones joining high school next year and this calls for increased support. Kindly uphold us in remembrance as we do our part to keep the work going.
Farm project is soon beginning to bear fruits as we see some of harvests coming home. At least we have food to go round but not enough yet to cover fees and other basic needs. Do pray with us that we may get the needed harrow implement to make our farming more effective and profitable.
Everyone here is happy and thanking the Lord for friends like you who are always having us in memory and prayers. Kindly continue in doing the same as the Lord enables you. We are very appreciative and do cherish this partnership highly. Be blessed.
In His service,
Philip and Rose Ochieng
