Someone We Won't Forget

In June, 2013 Don wrote the following about a very special young man.  I want to share it with you today and then post an update.

Musembe Massai is 13 years old.  He has AIDS as does his father,  Massai Kyusya.  His mother died of AIDS six years ago.  He lives out in the country many kilometers from the nearest village.  He is in 5th grade and walks to school each day. In this photo he is with my good friend and co-worker, Pastor Shadrack Maunda.
His family has no regular income and finding food is difficult. At times, Pastor Shadrack's church in Kibwezi is able to buy food for them.  Getting the food the 10 or so kilometers out to the family is usually an obstacle because the church also has to raise the funds for public transportation to get to the boy’s home.  Burning Plow Ministries is at times able to help with the food and transportation.  In fact when we are in that part of Kenya we have been able to buy food and take it to them in our car.

The father’s bicycle is their only transportation other than walking.  The bike was well worn and needed tires, brakes, pedals, a new seat and a new carrier on the back.  In other words, he needed a new bike.  When we were back in the area in August we bought a new bike and took it out to the family.
This is some of the opportunities God gives us to help those who can not help themselves.
Thank you for helping us help people like Musembi and his family.
In HIS service.
