Widows & Abandoned Women Fund

In 2014, I discovered a large group of women who were hidden all over the world. Traveling in poor nations as director of Heaven's Family's Christian Widows Fund, I found myself often meeting women who were not widows, but whose husbands had abandoned them. That usually meant that they, along with their children, were left with nothing. And I observed that such women shared the same sufferings as widows. They couldn't meet their family's most basic needs. Because they were not widows, however, Christian organizations were ignoring them. Heaven's Family was one of them.

Victims of Sexual Violence Fund

Over the past few decades, armies of men have been fighting in East Africa's wars, taking millions of lives and displacing millions more. Rape has now also become a weapon of war. Many victims find themselves infected with AIDS or pregnant, carrying offspring of the "enemy." Married victims are cast off by their husbands. Unmarried victims are marked and spurned for life. All find themselves rejected by their families and local communities, casualties of war. The brutality has become so epidemic that Eastern Congo has been labeled the "rape capital of the world" by a U.N. Special Representative.

Sarai and her unwed mother, with 3 other siblings in tow, needed a place to hide from domestic violence. They were welcomed with open arms into a little community of believers known as "the Village," pioneered by Heaven's Family missionaries to Mexico Jason and Nicole Fitzpatrick.

Persecuted Christians Fund

Hardcore Muslim. That aptly described "Shaheem," a respected Islamic scholar and imam of a prestigious mosque and college in India. That was, however, before he failed at an assigned task to win back to Islam a convert to Christ. After their long debates, Shaheem the imam became Shaheem the follower of Christ. And so he was baptized—a potential death-sentence for those who turn away from Islam. Through our Persecuted Christians Fund, Heaven's Family helped relocate Shaheem to another country where he could be safe, attend Bible school, and prepare for ministry.

Orphan’s Tear Ministry

In the remote, mountainous villages of Myanmar, fathers often struggle to provide their children with the basic necessities of clothing, food and education. Such was the case of Pastor Thang Leo. Desperate, he sent his son, Samuel, to an orphanage hundreds of miles away, just so he could be fed and receive an education. A $300 loan from Orphan's Tear, however, changed everything. Using his loan to start a small agricultural project, Pastor Leo now provides for his family—and his son is back home!

Micro-Loan Fund

At our very first meeting, I could tell that 20-year-old Kevin Chaya of Kenya had what it takes to succeed in business. He already ran a dry-goods wholesale/retail business, but he needed capital to expand. Believing in his plan—and Kevin's Christian integrity—Heaven's Family granted him what we call an "Opportunity Loan." The results: Within a year, Kevin's business grew 10-fold and employed 3 other poor Kenyans. Kevin repaid his loan 4 months early!

Leprosy Ministry Fund

Although modern leprosy (Hansen's Disease) is easily cured and rendered noncontagious, it continues to plague the poor in some developing nations. Victims are stigmatized and ostracized. Just like in Bible days, to survive, they must beg. Jesus cared for leprosy victims, and because of His love within us, so do we, in both China and India.
