The day before yesterday, thieves tried to break in StoneHouse Sewing Center and steal our sewing machines. It was foiled because the lady we rent from, woke up at 1:00 a.m. in the morning and screamed, hearing the thieves trying to break in. Her screams alerted the neighbors who chased the two men off who were attempting the robbery.
The fire destroyed everything including our caretaker’s house. Elizabeth, her daughter Modesta and her six year old son Jesse, lost every personal possession they owned. They were left with nothing. Everything in the church building was a total loss, but thanks to our Father’s grace none of our people were injured.
The quick moving fire destroyed six homes beside ours, and later, we found out that three of the neighborhood children were locked in one of those houses with no one watching them. Thanks to our God, the neighbors broke the door down and rescued them before they were killed by the fire.
The Nakuru church is where all our SMI meetings took place, like conferences and leaders meetings and this calamity will definitely create some hardship.
We will need to rebuild our gathering place. Our people have taken in our caretaker's family and we are sure there will be some good hearted readers who will help us take care of her needs. We are just so grateful that they were spared. (That's Elizabeth in the middle of the ladies sitting down and her sister Zippy on her left who took her into her house. Zippy is a widow with 2 children.)
Please pray how you can help us in this tragic loss. We do know that even this will turn out for our good but we will need your help. We ask that you continue to pray for us, as we continue advancing His Kingdom... No weapon the enemy throws at us will prosper and every thing we encounter will propel us forward in His Grace.
