Karen’s project, “Color the World With Happines”‘ for the kids in our feeding program has far exceeded the goal of 1500 items. We ended up with 4,104! In addition, there were people who donated money to help support the feeding program. That total was $516. The project was shared with folks outside our church, and we were blessed by their generosity as well as that of our own people. Karen is preparing to put the items in suitcases so a person going to Nairobi can take the items to the children. Our thanks to all who contributed.
Karen Price wanted to help the children in the Kibera Slums so she initiated a project to give the children coloring supplies. On one of Pastor Phil’s visits to the slums, he gave out pencils. The children were so excited to have them that Karen got the idea of sending coloring supplies. She has met her goal of gathering the supplies, and they will be delivered this summer.

One of the members at New Day Mary Dawson was honored before the worship service on her 91st birthday. Her family surprised her by each of them presenting her with a red rose. Mary was thrilled. Her grand children and great grandchildren were there too. They sat with the pastor during the children’s moments. It was a lovely gesture for Mary by her family.
New Day entertained members Sunny and Paul at the retirement home where they live. Sunny and Paul were so happy to see the hosts of the tea party. They miss being at New Day very much.
