Work on our new house has been continuing, as the photos below show. The perimeter wall is essentially finished. Work on the insides is continuing, with further big jobs including the ceiling and the bathroom.

A hopeful young athlete

Joseph Kituku Mwinzia

Joseph Kituku Mwinzia is a 15-year-old student at our high school. He is also one of the best athletes in the country, having recently won a 5,000-metre race in 13 minutes. (The 13-minute barrier was not broken anywhere in the world until 1987, and the world record currently stands at 12:37.35.)

A healthy diet is essential for an elite-level athlete. It is not possible to derive sufficient strength from the diet of maize meal on which many impoverished Kenyans subsist. Joseph is seeking sponsorship in the hope of being able to maximise his natural athletic talent.

Elyon High School has some other good athletes, and the coach will be spending two weeks working intensively with them after the current academic term ends on 26 November.

Registration Certificate

School registration certificate

The full registration certificate for Elyon High School has now come through. Many thanks to all who have been praying for this. In the past the school has been operating on a provisional registration, using semi-permanent facilities on rented property.

The full registration certificate will be a significant benefit to the school. We will now be able (funding permitting) to purchase land and build permanent structures.

We are continuing to explore options for obtaining more land.
