Mike flew to Mombassa last week and by God's grace was able to clear the shipping container thru customs. A heavy storage fee was charged due to a mistake by the US shipping company. But no additional taxes or fees were charged! A HUGE relief to have that hurdle completed.
A big answer to people's prayers came not only in the news above...but also in helping us avoid "extra fees". One person tried very hard to convince us he needed a "little something extra" to allow us thru the process. Amazingly he once had to bring his own son to Tenwek for help - and the boy recovered. Somehow that "extra" fee disappeared and we were granted clearance.
So grateful for God's provision and your support!
The container is due to reach our home at Tenwek Monday. We pray it will arrive safely and on time. It will take a large group of people and a few tractors to transport the items to our door down the hill (far too steep and small of a road for a tractor trailer) and to the other two families who shared the container with us.
Excited for our move to be finally complete!!!
