Most African pastors retire without pension and a house to live in. In majority of Baptist Churches in East Africa it is most common. For this reason Greater Harvest Trust in Melbourne and Maitland Baptist Church chose to help Rev. William and Grace who have worked in the slums of Dagoretti and Kibera to put up a decent house in the outskirts of Nairobi. A couple of friends from Sydney have also contributed personally. The house is expected to double up as a motel specifically for overseas youth who come as volunteers to work on Christian projects in Kenya. It is ideally situated near the main airport (Jomo Kenyatta International Airport). It has reached a critical phase (halfway) and needs a concrete slab, roof, windows, doors and utilities. It is our appeal to request for financial support on this lifetime project. The house in which we are right now is very small and doubles up as a guest wing for overseas visitors and on rentals per month. Having lived in it for 20 years, it is time for change. May God bless your giving as you assist to raise at least AUD 25,000 to finish the house in 2009.
