Kodera, Kenya Rss

Pine Lake Covenant Church partners with Christopher Sure in support of the town of Kodera, Kenya. Christopher is a Kenyan who in 1999 came to the United States and attended school at the Lutheran Bible Institute in Issaquah, WA, now known as Trinity Lutheran College. Pine Lake Covenant Church got to know him, supported his education and began to fund the ministry which he had begun in his home community years previously. We began sending teams and as a result, built relationships with this community.

We sent a team Christmas of 1999 to investigate that potential of becoming a Partnership, and they returned with excitement, convinced that God had placed this community in our path for a good purpose! We undertook initiatives such as:

  • Taught health and hygiene principles
  • Funded the building of latrines at local elementary school
  • Developed a Certified Seed and Fertilizer Bank
  • Provided medical services through medical teams
  • Funded the construction of a 3 room clinic – St. John’s Clinic, Karabach – manned by Kenyan nurses
  • Funded the Pine Lake Academy – a private Christian elementary school – through Child Sponsorship
  • Purchased a 50’X 30’ tent for the purpose of being a Community center as well as house the Church congregation of 200 Koderans
  • Taught how to dream dreams and build goals for community development

In KoderaAs many of you know, the big news from Kodera is the new well at the school.   After drilling two bore holes that were dry, a third try - this time 150 meters down in Christopher's banana yard - yielded 3 cubic meters of water per hour.   At the right, you can see the drilling rig, with some of the first water pouring out at the bottom.
