        “Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come”
                                             (Revelation 4:8b).
Greetings from the Kreamer family
Whenever we turn our calendar to the month of
May, our anticipation of summer plans become
a part of our daily thoughts! We look forward
to sharing all that our Perfect and Holy God has
completed in Kenya. In His holiness, He used
us and you to do His work at the Rafiki Village,
in our local church, BSF, and Rosslyn Academy.
We are humbled, blessed, and thankful that you
are an important part of this work, and we look
forward to sharing all the wonderful news!
This wonderful news includes stories of Rafiki
children who are flourishing in Christ’s love as
they were rescued from hopeless situations,
updates on girls who have graduated from
Rafiki, how God has wrapped our family in His
daily care and much more! God also provided                GRADUATING FROM THE NAVAL ACADEMY PREP. SCHOOL,
an extra measure of encouragement as we                              NEWPORT, RI. MAY 19, 2006

Our summer will not only be special because we
will be sharing Rafiki with you, but also because
Wade will be completing his year at the Naval
Academy Preparatory School and reporting to
the United States Naval Academy 26 June. We
are very proud of his accomplishments and it
has been exciting to hear him speak how God
supplied all he needed to excel. Our whole
family will be celebrating with Wade and look
forward to our time in Annapolis, Maryland.
However, as we rest Wade in God’s hands, we
are at the same time beginning the steps for our
next one to fly, Constance. Last summer we
were able to visit several schools and will have a
chance to visit one more in July. Thankfully she             CONSTANCE PARTICIPATING IN A SUPPORTING ROLE
