BETH POTTERS’S HOME NEWS LETTER 2021.
On behalf of the Board members of Beth Potter’s Home, we want to thank God for all of you who believed in us and together with us in this noble task of God’s calling to help these orphans in one way or the other. We are happy to inform you that your work has not been in vain.
Here are some of alights concerning these orphans of the year 2020:
1. Philomena, having completed grade 12 two years ago 2018 she is now in her second year in a career college, where her performance is very encouraging.
2. Ndunge Musilu, we are happy to report that she completed grade 12 in 2019.
3. Christopher, who was born with HIV Aids disease and his parents died, was rejected by his relatives including his own uncle. Through God’s grace Christopher completed grade 12 in 2019 after a long struggle with this sickness. We are sad to inform you that Christopher passed away December 2020, after receiving his share of Christmas food, as it is shown in the pictures of our Website. He is the fourth orphan to die because of this disease.
4. Mercy, who was in grade 12 in 2020 did not complete her courses due to Covid-19 so this was postponed to April this year 2021 God willing. She has been doing very well behavior wise and in School.
5. Andrew and Januaries, are now in grade 10 this year 2021, they are doing well in school.
Other orphans including James are in different Elementary schools grades 3 & 4 respectively.
All these children are given two meals in their respective schools, while at home during weekends, holidays we provide food for them throughout the year. We also care for their health issues when they become sick.
We are happy to report to you that one of the orphans by the name Januaries who had a kidney problem and conditioned to use catheter even in school, which caused a stigma, is now healed. Glory to God for his healing.
We were able to send Christmas food in 2020, for all children and their families where they live.
Things to Pray for:-
Since everything has gone up financially due to Covid-19, what we used to pay for food last year 2019 is now twice as much this year 2021. The construction of this home in order for us to have these orphans under one roof, their new home where their needs will be fully met satisfactorily physically, emotionally, socially and spiritually is still yet to be build when funds will be available. We hope and pray for God’s will to be done and this anticipated dream to be a reality.
Therefore, pray with us for God to provide us with donors to support the building of this urgently needed home for these orphans. It is with great joy to inform you that our charity is officially registered as non-profit charitable organization here in Canada. The annual tax reports for the charity has been highly recommended by Canada Revenue Agency. Therefore, those who would like to donate any amount of money to this charity, $20 and above will be issued with a receipt for income tax purposes.

Joseph & Elizabeth Kibwaa recently travelled to Kenya and were able to see the land where the orphans' home will soon be built! The Kibwaas were also able to deliver clothes and gifts from Canada, distribute more food to orphans' homes, as well as feed children! You can see pictures from the recent trip here.
We are continually grateful for your support of Beth Potter's Home. We ask that you keep us i your prayers. Would you also do us the huge favour of sharing this website with your family and friends and spreading the word of the wonderful work we don in Kenya?

We continue to do the Lord's work with our young orphans in Kangundo. Our fundraiser in the spring was a huge success, and your generosity allows us to continue in our work! In September we were able to make more food deliveries. You can view photos of this event here.
We were also struck with more tragedy as another mother passed away from HIV/AIDS leaving behind more orphans for us to care for.
Would you please join us in praying for the orphans. Also pray for our faithful few workers on the ground in Kangundo, Kenya. If you would like to help financially more info can be found here.
Thank you again for your wonderful support.
To God be the glory.

On behalf of Beth Potter’s Home board of directors, I want to take this opportunity to extend our appreciation to you all, for your sincere participation both financially and your presence in our fundraising event on May 4th, 2012. Special thanks goes to the following: Seven Oaks School Division for your kind action of waving the charging rental fee for this non-profit organization. The principal of Maples Collegiate, Gwen Birse, for welcoming us to use your institution for this event. The Cafeteria manager of the same Institution, Susan for allowing us to use your facility and your tireless help to the function up to the last minute that night. The principal of Wellington College of Remedial Message Therapy for gracing the occasion with your financial generosity which came from both the College and student body and provision of message chairs to be used in that event. For Peter Krahn of Garden City Collegiate, who regardless of his busy schedule and preparation of a trip to go to Africa last month, made sure that we got all the administrative help we needed. His presence was also noticed during the event after his return from Africa, Kenya. We cannot thank everyone even those who worked behind the scenes for all what you did to make this event successful the way it turned out to be. We raised slightly over $ 10,000 and our prayers to you for God to continue to bless you mightily. May the honour and glory be to God.

Greetings! It has been an exciting month or two at Beth Potter's Home. In December we were able to deliver food to those in our community and bring some Christmas cheer to those in need.
We also continue to provide tuition thanks to our generous sponsors. $360.00 (CAD) is enough to sponsor a child for a full year! As you can see from these pictures, being sponsored is a second opportunity at life for these young children.
Please prayerfully consider a donation to Beth Potter's Home. Whether you can give a dollar or a thousand, or more - any and all amounts are received with thanksgiving.
May the Lord bless you and keep you!
