Pictures of Kisii Town

Our location is just south of Kisii town in a smaller country setting. We are in Boronyi Village. To do most of our shopping or regular business we usually go into Kisii.

"Then said the LORD, Thou hast had pity on the gourd, for the which thou hast not laboured, neither madest it grow; which came up in a night, and perished in a night: (11) And should not I spare Nineveh, that great city, wherein are more than sixscore thousand persons that cannot discern between their right hand and their left hand; and also much cattle?"
-Jonah 4:10-11

"And when they had found him, they said unto him, All men seek for thee. (38) And he said unto them, Let us go into the next towns, that I may preach there also: for therefore came I forth. "

Our School and Church

(8) And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes. (9) And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates."

Around the Orphanage

Here are just a few pictures from around our place!


Orphanage

Looking from the top of our campus downward. On the left are the Maranga home, the old boys dorm, the girls dorm, and so on. The school buildings are below that, and one step below there would be the location of our banana garden.

Orphanage

Clothes hung out to dry along the fence.

Orphanage

The boys' dorm and the old kitchen building. The old kitchen section is now torn off. However, the old dorm remains as it is. It could use some repairing or replacement with a better one.

Orphanage

Lined up to receive lunch in the boys' dorm/Old kitchen area. Gilbert, our cook, stands ready to serve! He has prepared a nice meal!

Orphanage

Lined up for lunch in the New Kitchen Building. Thankfully enough donations came in to make this new place! It's much better! (especially in the rain we can keep dry while getting our food).

Orphanage

Gathering food together from the storage area.

" (1) A Song of degrees for Solomon. Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain. (2) It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep. (3) Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. (4) As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. (5) Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate." -Psalm 127:1-5

"(7) Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh? (8) Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the LORD shall be thy rereward. " -Isaiah 58:7-8

Old Latrine on the left, a clothesline, and the fence dividing the upper and lower sections of our campus. The school buildings are just below (behind) that.

Orphanage

The floor of the boys' dorm which is a bit old. We've had occasional problems with dust mites getting into this floor and biting (not fun).

Orphanage

Brother Maranga standing in the girls' dorm which has a nice cement floor (easy for cleaning and prevents dust mites).

Orphanage

Bunk beds and mosquito netting in the girls' dorm (the netting is important to prevent malaria as much as possible).


The Kids

Here are some pictures of our kids from the orphanage. These pictures were taken during a Spring 2012 visit to the orphanage by one our sponsors from the United States.

"The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them." -Isaiah 11:6

"(1) At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? (2) And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, (3) And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. (4) Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. (5) And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. (6) But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. " -Matthew 18:1-6

"(16) But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. (17) Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein." -Luke 18:16-17

Evangelism Projects

Here are some pictures of how we like to do Evangelism in the community by going out to share the gospel with many people in the area, to study and teach the Bible, thus sharing God's blessed last day message with many people and awakening minds. We share with both people and pastors of various denominations, or no committed faith at all, and have seen blessed commitments to God's truth among them! Minds have been enlightened with God's final message! We also like to give out Bibles to some of those who have been attending faithfully but who have no Bibles. Evangelism funds for this work (Bibles, travel, etc.) would be a great help if the Lord would put that on your heart!

"Those who are wise shall shine Like the brightness of the firmament, And those who turn many to righteousness Like the stars forever and ever." -Daniel 12:3

"They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. (6) He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him. " -Psalm 126:5-6

"Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it after many days. (2) Give a portion to seven, and also to eight; for thou knowest not what evil shall be upon the earth." -Ecclesiastes 11:1-2

"Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest. " -Luke 10:2

These last several pictures numbered 1-6 are a few of Stevenson's favorite photographed evangelistic endeavors with his friends in ministry. Brother Wilfred Ondande is the one in charge of this Evangelism while Stevenson is in charge of the Orphanage section of their Ministry. Together, they do lots of outreach to the surrounding areas and villages around Kisii! They preach and share the word with others while getting to know the various families and people in the communities. In fact, it was through this work that the orphanage project began, as they began to discover and uncover all the needs of families and orphaned children in the villages around.

Our Banana Garden

At the bottom of our property which is on a hillside we have a banana garden. We grow some various foods there and get some bananas at certain times. Enjoy the pictures!

1 Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful; 2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord, And in His law he meditates day and night. 3 He shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever he does shall prosper. 4 The ungodly are not so, But are like the chaff which the wind drives away. 5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. 6 For the Lord knows the way of the righteous, But the way of the ungodly shall perish. -Psalm 1:1-6

There are many lessons about the Lord and life we can learn from our gardening!
