BTV Update 10.28.11



Just back from Kenya, and I wanted to share just a quick note and express my appreciation to everyone who is helping to make the ministry of Build the Village so successful. James and I visited the Kapsabet prison where we had the opportunity to share the gospel with hundreds of inmates. There was an outstanding response to the gospel message and a beautiful prayer of repentance echoing between the buildings. To God be the glory!

Additionally, we left 100 New Testament Bibles with the prisoners, providing a refreshing word of hope and eternal life. In the photo above, two women from the prison are accepting the bibles for the ladies (one in black stripes and the other in the black sweater) and the young man to my left (not in prison clothes) is accepting for the male inmates. FYI, the lady to my right is the assistant prison commander, and a Christian herself.

Later that day, we delivered nearly 200 Bibles to a deaf school in Kapsabet where every child received a copy. For them, they could not express their appreciation in words. But, to see their smiles, this spoke volumes! Thank you.

Please keep the unnamed prisoners of this camp and the children and teachers of the deaf school in your prayers as they work through many personal struggles.

Blessings to everyone,

Damon, Randa, James and the BTV Team, Kenya

BTV Update 10.12.11



We wanted to share this most current picture with you as our Children’s Center continues to grow! On Tuesday, we were blessed with a 3 month old child who was abandoned in a busy market. She’s the little one in the arms of the person in the top right of the picture. As you can see, we are really growing, we now have 17 children! We want to thank many of you for your support and prayers as God blesses us with the privilege of caring for these children.

Additionally, Damon will be traveling to Kenya on Saturday and returning to the States with Pastor James Esendi later in October. During Pastor James’ visit he will have the opportunity to visit with many friends and partnering churches. We sure look forward to his visit and know he will be an encouragement and blessing to many! We are certain he will be blessed meeting many of you!
Pray for us as we continue to serve and care for many like these in Kenya.

For the Glory of Christ!
