Challenges remain

We had our final meeting with refugee church leadership this afternoon. We reviewed various projects and programs that we are working on together.

They expressed excitement and concern as the completion of the first phase of the KISOM building is in sight and they realize they still have to figure out how to manage and protect it. They also need to figure out how to get electricity and water to the site.

We don’t have solutions to these challenges. We offered our prayers and challenged the association of 160 refugee churches to each begin contributing $1.00/month to URHC. That kind of monthly income would likely give them enough to meet most, if not all, of these needs.

But it isn’t easy. $1.00 is a lot of money for a church to contribute each month in this place. Still, I believe they will rise to the challenge.

It’s hard to believe that the next time IAFR visits Kakuma, the KISOM buildings will be completed – and hopefully in use!
