POKOT News January 22nd 2019
Truly wonderful news to report. Yesterday we sent the magnificent sum of £22,400 to Fr Conway in East Pokot. No, there are not too many noughts in the amount; and Yes the comma is in the right place! Twenty two thousand and four hundred pounds.
£16,300 of this was for Fr Sean McGovern at the Rotu mission, of which £15,000 is to build the small house for two resident medics at his Mission’s clinic. The balance of £1,300 is for two hundred solar lamps, 80 of which he purchased just before Christmas. Fr Conway at the Barpello Mission received £6,100 all of which is for the school and university/college fees of students being sponsored by members of the Pound a Week Group. Fr Conway and Fr McGovern have asked me to extended their sincere thanks for your most generous support for their missionary work among the Pokot people.
