Dear friends in Eastbourne,
Greetings from Mutomo.
I wish to acknowledge receipt of 1,625 euros amounting to Kshs.180,375
from your beloved parishioners.
May God bless them.
I might add that
my belief in Divine Providence
is ever increased by the arrival of much
needed funds, when they are not expected.
This donation comes at a time
when we desperately needed to buy
blankets for the patients
and also provide gowns/pyjamas for patients but we simply did not have the money
to do that.
This donation was timely
and may the Lord reward you all a hundred fold.. From this time of year and for the next 2
months the temperatures drop
and Kenyans feels the cold very much….
they are already complaining at temp. of 28C . For people like me of course that temp is perfect.
Thank you all for your on-going support
of our Mission in Mutomo.
God Bless, Anita

Dear Fr. Anderson and Parishioners,
Thank you so much for your ongoing support and encouragement. Many people give a once off donation but very few are able to continue giving so generously. Our sisters in Jalingo who are working in the Women Centre are always amazed when we tell them you have sent another donation. Truly you have made a huge difference in their lives.
We have asked them many times why they cannot get more funding from their own diocese and their Bishop. The project has his full support but they simply do not have the resources to give the necessary financial backing. The southern part of the diocese has experienced crisis for the last 5 years and many of the Churches and parish houses have been burnt. So the Bishop actually doesn’t have the money at the moment.
At our District Assembly this Christmas we asked the Sisters if there was any way they could raise some money themselves. They talked about buying canopies and chairs which they could rent out. Everybody thought it might be a good way of raising funds but the initial capital was a problem.
Then we got a phone call to say Eastbourne had sent another generous donation. It was a real sign from God! Hopefully if the Women Centre can involve themselves in a small business, they will eventually be able to support themselves and train the women and girls without always feeling that the Centre will have to close due to lack of funds.
They had a very successful graduation on the 6th of December 2016, and all those graduating were presented with sowing machines. Again this could only happen as a result of your support.
Thank you so much, and please convey our gratitude to all those who have contributed. Please support us with your prayers as Nigeria is going difficult times. God bless,
Sr Anne and Sr. Antoinette
