Big delivery today!! The first load of steel from our Fences4Kenya fundraiser has arrived!!
It was scheduled to arrive yesterday, and while we gave the delivery company a fantastic, overly-detailed map, the driver decided to follow his own path and go his own way…and got stuck…
The driver ultimately arrived at a bridge that couldn’t hold the weight of the steel, so our lovely neighbor showed up with his tractor and towed the delivery truck backward for many miles (because there was no room to turn around). Amazingly, this delay only set us back half a day, and the steel actually arrived on grounds earlier today.
We frequently encounter setbacks like this, and, to be honest, all you can do is shake your head and laugh. Thanks to our community as a whole, these setbacks are little setbacks, because everyone comes together to help each other out. Rather than being frustrating, it’s usually an amazing lesson in community and in trusting that things will work out.
Speaking of community – a huge thanks to everyone who donated, liked, and shared our Fences4Kenya fundraiser posts!! This is only possible because of each of you! This is YOUR steel, YOUR meters of fencing, and YOUR fence posts!
We are also super excited to share that one of our lovely supporters (who happens to be a welder) has decided to donate two weeks of his vacation to us – he will be arriving shortly and will graciously spend two weeks welding for Kenya (and us!) as a volunteer. Along with our team of maintenance techs (who are skilled in everything), this volunteer’s hard work will help us meet one of our top 2020 New Year’s Resolutions – get Kenya home as soon as possible!
