CMM Funding Update

Our day in court to receive our ruling has been delayed. For the past 2 weeks the judge over our case, has been called to sit on a national duty matter as he is a member of the High Court and highly respected. As a result, all his cases have been delayed. His court will reopen this Monday, February 3rd and all cases that he has ruled on will have their rulings read on a day yet to be determined. That day should be within 2 weeks and hopefully we will be informed of that date after court reopens Monday. We were not excited to have another...

2020 Kicks Off and There is Much to do!

First Things First I want to wish everyone a happy and prosperous 2020! My prayer for you is the 9 verses of the 20th chapter of Psalms, especially verse 4: “May He give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed.” Let’s claim the entire chapter for 2020! We have been and are praying for the judge (Justice ChaCha Mwita) who is in the process of writing his ruling on our pending award of the funds for the taking of the property of CMM. From our last meeting in court concerning this, we strongly feel and believe that the...

The Banquet

Greetings Friends, I’m very excited about this year’s Mission Barnabas banquet. I would describe my overall take on the happenings in Kenya the past 2 weeks as, ‘Breakthrough is happening, cautiously optimistic for the timing’. Last week we reached a settlement with the lawyer challenging our evaluation and the details are being finalized now. The evaluation challenge will be dropped and once everything finalized, we should be paid in November! We are so encouraged about recent developments that we will begin the celebrations on Nov. 5th. We...

The Vision Lives – Regardless!

Greetings to all of the Mission Barnabas/CMM friends and supporters. You are all aware of the intensity and challenges ongoing with CMM receiving its due compensation for our property. We continue to see victories and God continues to provide for us in the waiting. It is like riding a roller coaster, but our peace comes from keeping the vision before us as well as such encouragement and support from you. I want to summarize the state of things for us and CMM. The battle rages but we will not waver…. We have not wavered from what we truly...

A Hot Update for Summer

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 court rejected that...

The Train Story Continues

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 June 18th our lawyers expect...

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...
