Pain Free…We Praise Thee!

A couple months ago I received an email from Kevin, a Christian brother in Uganda, asking for help from the Critical Medical Needs Ministry. He told me about Akumu Janifer, a young 23-year-old woman living in great pain. Akumu slipped from her mother's arms when she was just 6 months old, but her mother never sought medical care for her and she seemed to get better.

Boiling Mad About Unsafe Water

Nearly all the children raised their hands. I had just asked them by a show of hands to tell me who suffered frequently from stomach pain or diarrhea. It shouldn't have come as much of a surprise—I was in rural Mukono, Uganda, after all. I was so glad that my visit would change that!

Blossoming Babies

An average 300 babies are abandoned every day in Kenya. Peter and Selpher Matua, of the Baby Life Rescue Center in the city of Mombasa, have been called by the Lord to care for these unclaimed precious babies. The center provides these formerly unwanted children with love, Christian nurture and healthy food while adoptive parents are sought.

The “D-Team”

"I love it when a plan comes together," were the words of Hannibal, the leader of the "A-Team" on the 1980s TV series of the same name, at the successful conclusion of each episode. No less could be said of our recent "mission"—the Holy Spirit showed up; the government did not. Reasons to rejoice in this season!

Child Care Reboot

Last time I wrote about how most of the children in the orphanages we support have at least one living parent or close relative, but that we lacked the knowledge and experience necessary to successfully reintegrate these children back into their families. God has provided us with a solution, and I'm very excited to tell you about it!

A Double Blessing

Have you seen the movie The Good Lie? It's a sad glimpse into what some Sudanese people have gone through due to warring in their country. Some women have lost their husbands and all of their children. Others go through devastating traumas that can either take them down a path of despair or one of courage.

Many Thanks

During this Christmas season we are reminded again of the greatest gift of love our Heavenly Father has ever given to his children—a gift He desires us to then give to others in ways only limited by our willingness and creativity. And we're so glad you've been willing to partner with us through the Human Trafficking & Slavery Ministry to show His love to those who've become victims, as well as those who are at great risk of becoming one.

David Who?

The author of The Disciple Making Minister, David Servant, and I have a lot in common. We share the same first name, obviously, and we both work for Heaven's Family. But we also both wear glasses, and have strikingly dark, thick hair. This can sometimes cause confusion when corresponding with people overseas whom neither of us have met in person.

Five Years of Loving

Last month in India I took part in a wonderful collaboration between Heaven's Family, Hope for Hansen's and Chamberlain College of Nurses—all for the purpose of pouring out God's love and compassion to leprosy victims in 20 colonies spread throughout Hyderabad and New Delhi, India.
