It is hard to believe that God has opened up the door for us to build a house here in Kenya. Praise God, this is so exciting.
Not only has He given us land, but He has also shown us an amazing form of construction called "Earthbag Construction". Basically you build the house out of rammed bags of earth. You use the bags like bricks and then you plaster over them after you are done. With this form of construction we will be able to build a house for the cost of rent for 2 or 3 years. Praise God.
We were already planning a very brief furlough to the USA and while we are there we will be fundraising for this home. Our goal is $15,000. We hope to build it for less than that, and if we can we will use the access for our ministry projects.
We are also looking for volunteer teams to come out and help us build the house. We will be starting the project in May of next year. Come join us.
