To springboard you into ’24 with uswe decided to send you the entire, verbatim, and comprehensive year-end account of what our Kenya team did in 2023, and their rather extensive plans for 2024. Just run your finger down the page to get an idea of the effectiveness and efficiency of our Kenya team.

As you can see, our leader, Mark Juma, sends regular updates after each training, a year-end summary of what transpired, and projected plans for the next year. That is what you see below. You get a sense of the high level of accountability. We want to ensure that the funds you generously give get spent wisely and produce eternal dividends.
In the last two years, we expanded from one county (state) in Kenya to four…with more to add in the near future. We give thanks to the Lord for what He has done and is going to do through our Kenya team.


We truly thank God for the milestones made in 2023 as reflected and summarized in my report below:

ANOTHER COUNTRY?—We keep praying for this option for the availability of funds and the country to go to.

RESOURCES
a)  JFYM BOOKS—Based on the availability of funds, we may need 1000 books.
b) Funding

The above-proposed ministry plans shall be reviewed time after time with you based on how God allows for the availability of funds this year.

May the Lord guide and give you wisdom as you work through the plans with me outlined herein. I am praying for you.

Your son,
Mark Juma.
