Masudi wants to be a chef!

It's been said that one hundred years from now,
it won't matter what my bank account was,
the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove...
but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child.

Masudi cooking at my house

During the month of December, our thoughts turn to the joy of giving to others. Please allow me to propose a worthy recipient for your Christmas gift-giving:

I've known Masudi Anderson Mwakidudu for over 8 years. I met he and his mom, Stella, in the remote village of Shimba Hills while on a 10-day mission trip with Kenyans. Masudi and I have remained friends all these years and I've had the pleasure of watching him develop into a very polite gentleman.

He completed his high school education two years ago and patiently waited for an opportunity to pursue his dream of becoming a chef. Not only does he love to cook, but he sincerely wants to develop his skills so he can become gainfully employed and help support his single mom.

He is now enrolled at a college here in Nairobi in a one-year course called "Food Production".

Two of my faithful supporters have paid for the last several years of his schooling. They continue to do so even now. However... what they contribute isn't quite enough now that he's in college. Would you consider investing in this young man's life?

His expenses are as follows:

$50 per month for school fees
$20 per month for rent
$50 per month for food, bus fare, and other necessities

Please consider a one-time donation to his college fund. Or... you may decide on a one-year commitment.

Thank you Deb for caring so much about Musudi and for following God's call to come along his side and be his friend. It was a privilege to meet him. I will be praying he can find a sponsor. :)
