We thought we would utilize a tradition among young males in the American culture to help transform the lives of hundreds in Kenya: “No Shave November”. Throughout the month of November, we are challenging men to step up and help raise awareness, and funds, for a need that Bread of Life has had for two years. With the construction of a school and now a clinic, we have seen an increase in the need for transportation into and out of the villages where we work in Turkana. Because of the terrain, the best mode of transportation is called a piki-piki, which is basically an African motorcycle. These motorcycles can help transport pastors to villages who have never heard the Gospel, discipleship students to homes where they can minister to widows and orphans, supplies for the school or clinic to where they need to go, and patients to the larger hospital if the need arises. These motorcycles cost $1500/piece and, with your help, we can buy at least one, if not more, within 30 days. There are two ways you can be involved.

Participants: We are looking for people willing to take the “No Shave” challenge. What we are looking for are people who are willing to forgo shaving for the entire month of November, all 30 days. In addition to not shaving, we would like each participant to find at least 5 people who will sponsor them with $1/day that they don’t shave. Therefore, if you have 5 sponsors each giving $1/day you don’t shave and if you last the entire month, then you will raise $150 toward the goal. If we get 10 people to join in, we will have enough for one piki-piki; 20 people = 2, 30 people = 3, etc. If you would like to be a participant in the challenge, then please e-mail Ernest Smith (ernestsmith@seacoast.org) for more details.

Sponsors: We understand that not everyone can be a participant; however, everyone can participate. If you would still like to be a part of this life-transforming opportunity by being a sponsor, simply e-mail Ernest Smith and let him know how many people you would like to sponsor and how much money you will donate per day (you can donate more than $1/day). You can choose whom you will sponsor or we can partner you with someone who is a participant and you will be on the way to making a major difference in the lives of hundreds in Turkana, Kenya.

To sign up to be a participant or a sponsor, simply e-mail Ernest (ernestsmith@seacoast.org) for more details. Thanks for being willing to help change lives.

In Christ’s Love,
