Food Ministry

David looked thin and sickly. Intestinal worms consumed most of the meager nutrition he received from the scraps he found at home or elsewhere. As is often the case in the slums of developing nations, David's family simply could not care for him.

Safe Water Ministry

Another sick child. Shanthi's heart broke seeing one of her little ones ill once again because of drinking contaminated water, but there were no clean water options. Shanthi was too poor to purchase bottled water or fuel to boil the contaminated water she drew from her village's only supply, water that required her to hike for hours every day.

Floating Noah’s Ark

Sadly, children with disabilities are often neglected, unwanted and abused in many parts of the world, including Uganda. Some parents want to care for their child, but lack the necessary skills or are too poor to do so properly. Victoria Namusisi has been caring for children with special needs, orphans and the unwanted for many years as the founder of Noah's Ark Christian School in Entebbe. She has become Mother to many, loving, nurturing and teaching them to love the Lord and be as successful in life as they can be.

Water flowing freely in Khawpui Chipp

Khawpui Chipp is a rural Christian village in the remote mountains of Myanmar, populated by Falam and Mizo tribal groups. Two miles from the village a well and cistern were installed to access an underground mountain water source. The villagers provided the labor to dig trenches and laid PVC piping to bring the safe, clean water directly to their village, where it is stored in a second cistern.

A Tip that Turned Manuel

"Will you take him in?" the social worker asked. "His mother is in jail and his stepfather [in reality his mom's live-in boyfriend] won't take him," she continued. Nicole, our Heaven's Family missionary to Mexico agreed, as she usually does…God will provide are the words she lives by. The social worker had received a tip earlier about a little boy living on the streets, and knew that Nicole had a soft heart, and hopefully a bed.

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!

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.

Water for a Worn-Out Widow

Pasis warmly welcomed us when we entered her small home in Makono during our visit to Uganda just a few weeks ago. She had recently received a Sawyer water filter from Heaven's Family partners Kenneth and Kevin Wafula, and I came to see how it was helping her family.

Loving Homeless Garbage Eaters

During my visit this month to Cindi's Hope Academy in Naivasha, Kenya, I was very blessed to meet some of the children who are benefiting from bulk foods provided by your gifts to the Food Ministry. Let me introduce you to 5-year-old James and his sisters, Jacinta, age 7, and Veronica, 10. Their faces looked happy and contented when we met, but they were not always able to smile so easily.
