The Heaven’s Family Blog

About this blog:

Every month, Heaven’s Family helps far more people than we could ever highlight in our quarterly magazines. For that reason, this blog contains additional photos and stories of some of the “least of these” among our spiritual family whom we’ve recently been blessed to serve.

Still living for God at 105!

“God told me He was going to give me a gift and I didn’t know what it was!” exclaimed 105-year-old Francesca. Her bent-over, fragile frame overflowed with joy, praising her Lord and Savior as I introduced myself on a recent trip to Guatemala. Francesca was one of several women you blessed with new beds and water filters. She was delighted and a delight to behold.

A Second Rescue

Judith, Heaven’s Family’s Victims of Sexual Violence Ministry's trusted partner in Jinja, Uganda, has ministered to women for over a decade. Her weekly discipleship meetings have become a lifeline for people whose lives are riddled with poverty and extreme hardship. These groups have now multiplied throughout Uganda!

Giant Slayers

My final blog brings us to Rwanda. We have two Farming God’s Way trainers and two model farms in Rwanda, one in the eastern part of the country and one four hours south. Peter trains in Bugesera (in the east) near his home and has multiple God’s Love Groups there. This is where the GLGs started their own savings program and bought all the members animals to continue to grow their businesses. The general in that area under Peter is Theoneste.

“It’s Working!”

Our greatest need in FGW is more trainers. Every time I go to a community to see the work our trainers are doing, someone says, "We need more training in our area." In 2018, we set in motion our model farm game plan. The model farm provides income for our trainers, a training center where people can learn FGW, and a place where quality trainers can be developed, all while allowing our trainers to spend more time with their families.
