A Hot Update for Summer

These past few months our journey with CMM/Kenya Railways/Compensation/Moving has resembled a roller coaster ride. None of us would have imagined all the issues, delays and such slow proceedings associated with the acquisition of our property. We are still waiting for release of our funds. Here is a summary of where we have been, where we are at now and where we are headed. Sad news first: We had an application before the court for the project (SGR) to be halted at our property until we were fully compensated....

The Train Story Continues

The past 2 weeks at CMM have been a whirlwind of activity and changes. Last week we had another hearing in court regarding receiving a portion of our compensation (75%) that is uncontested and then settle the remaining issues in ongoing hearings until done. The judge looked to be inclined to release the 75% but decided to hold all funds until the hearing is done. However, she also decided to set a full day aside on June 18th and hear and finish our entire valuation case with all witnesses and testimonies. After...

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...

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...

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...
