The Latest from our Struggles in Kenya

Keeping the Main Thing the Main Thing! So much is happening in our situation in Kenya almost daily. We want to update everyone as often as possible to keep you in the loop of the recent developments. Things are not moving at the speed we wish they were but at some point, our breakthrough will happen. We had felt that the last court hearing, April 8th, would give us something more definitive in our situation. However, the judge listened for a few minutes to the various lawyers and then scheduled for another hearing on April 25th. She told...

Our Saga Continues…

It has been awhile since our last update as we keep waiting until we have great news to share. However, we felt another update is in order to bring everyone up to speed where things stand with CMM, compensation for property and Mission Barnabas. So much has been happening in the last month in dealing with all the pieces of the government taking our property for the railroad. Due to so much corruption in almost every arena involving this process, it has caused so many delays. We also decided a few weeks ago that we were to expose those that...

Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!! Debbie and I wish for each one of you a wonderful and safe holiday season. As we reflect over the past year, we are so grateful and thankful for each of you. You have been such a blessing to us and to the work in Kenya. So many of you have sent encouraging words with many prayers on our behalf and your continued financial support has held our hands up during the times we thought they might drop. Thank you so much and may God richly bless you. CMM Update We are confident that we will receive our...

Fall is in the air!

Fall is in the air!

Greetings friends of Mission Barnabas, It’s that time of year again and believe it or not it’s been almost 2 years since we had our last Missions Barnabas banquet. The train story has had several curves, tunnels, and inclines along the journey. The process that we had been told would happen has not followed the script we were given in July 2017. However, as the journey has unfolded at each turn and challenge, God has been so faithful to sustain us. We have also realized that the vision and mission of MB has never changed but grown...

Land Compensation Update

It is hard to report on the current state of affairs in Kenya as they seem to change hourly. This year has been the most challenging and stressful year of ministry for Debbie and I but we believe it will also be one of our best before it is over! We are hanging onto what God gave us over a year ago…”I’ve Got This”….Jesus. As I have mentioned in previous updates evil forces were at work in all the happenings with the railways and particularly land acquisitions. Over the past few months Kenya has undertaken a major crackdown on corruption...

Yes, the Train is Still Coming!

Greetings dear Friends and Family! As you are aware we have been in a holding pattern until it is official that the government “gazettes” our property. Once that happens then things begin to move with much greater speed. This past week 14 officials from the railway, SGR and the Chinese construction firm came out to CMM. The officials present were the KR Program Director for Special Projects, the SGR Project Manager, the head engineer of the SGR Project, 2 KR board members, 4 top Chinese from CCCC and 4 other key staff. They came to visit, see...

2017 Sept Update

Greetings and Salutations, For those of you who have not heard, we have been waiting for the government to ‘gazette’ our property for use to build the next leg of the railway system in Kenya. Within the past couple of weeks the railway officials have been to CMM and took full measurements of the land and buildings as well as regularly taking of pictures and putting survey stakes throughout our property.  Also an article last week in one of the Kenya newspapers strongly suggested that property owners in the path of the train would be gazetted...
