Sewing projects, goats and school fees

I received this letter today from Rev Wang. My reply follows after the 2 photos :

Dear Reverend Mary,
I greet you in the name of Jesus Christ. I have paid the tuition fees for those children. I  have also bought uniform for the others. And i hope they do well in school..

Water hyacinth (as free chicken feed)  is not found at our place, it can be found in Lake Victoria far from Us. Instead we are using the chicken feeds from the shops. The chicken we have are layers but the eggs are used for incubation. At first we bought three dozen of chicks,now they are 120 chickens, and we have sold 50 chickens. Chicken feeds are very expensive for us but we are trying.

And we have build a goat’s house. Goats can feed from from under zero grazing. From the pictures you will see those five 5 goats.We bought  4 goats, and now we have 5 goats.The manager will be Lucy Nyambura (in the picture), she is a good manager and a good teacher.

The sewing machines are used in veranda because we don’t have buildings for them so we pay the space in veranda.There is  a plot (50 by 100) nearby that someone want to sale. The plot cost 1500 Dollars and is paid in two installment.   So if you can help us with that cash we can buy the plot and we use for both worship and projects.

Thank you and Please reply.

About the widows and children, are all well. God Bless you.

My reply:

Dear Rev. Wangai,
Thank you for your letter and the pictures. I am glad to now you are selling some chickens to make some money to help pay for chicken feed. Could you possibly also sell some eggs to help pay for the feed? Then you would be getting some money every day from the eggs. 
Is it possible for the children to find some leafy greens and bring them back to the chickens? Or are they already free-range chickens? Your flock has grown quite a bit and that is wonderful. 
I am glad to know the sewing projects are doing well. The goat pen looks very nice. I especially appreciated the care that someone put into preparing the long branches to use them as poles for the fence wall. It is very nicely done.
I am sorry to say that I do not have money to fund the purchase of the plot, but I will let some people know about the opportunity. 
Thank you again for all you are doing for the ladies and the children.
God bless you.
Joy!
Rev. Mary
