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.

Little Loise is Fed and Fit

Little Loise from Kenya has suffered much hardship in her young life. She was born with HIV/AIDS and became an orphan when both her parents died of the disease. She was taken in by her elderly grandmother, who was poverty-stricken and unable to work much. Because she struggled to feed Loise regularly, this beautiful little girl went hungry. Their situation was desperate, and Loise could easily have died from the combination of HIV and malnutrition.

Your Harvest

In 2001, the ruler of the Hindu kingdom of Nepal was assassinated. Hundreds of years of tradition were destroyed in a moment. In the wake of the king’s death, a new level of political freedom came to Nepal, including 100 new political parties and a limited freedom to spread the gospel. Soon, young Christian leadership was springing up everywhere.

Shattered, Then Restored

Born into a stable family in the Philippines, Julia had a happy family life until age 13, when her grandfather and cousin started to abuse her sexually. This abuse continued for three years! As a result, Julia’s behavior changed markedly. She went from a carefree child to a hopeless teenager numbing her emotional pain with alcohol. Everything about her choices was a cry for help!

Saved and Healed

My name is Bahije. After my husband was killed in the war, I fled Ghouta (an Al-Qaeda stronghold) and settled with my four children in another village in Syria. Our situation was extremely difficult, so I rented a small room without any utilities just to have a roof over our heads. But I couldn’t work because I was sick, and I couldn’t find a place to take my children so I could start working.

A seeker finds Jesus

Asad was born in a strong Muslim family and was sent to study the Quran at age seven. One day he was walking down a dusty road in the village, studying the Quran, when he saw something unexpected: a man with a long beard waving and smiling at him. At the same time, he heard a voice saying “Jesus.” This happened for three days in a row, so Asad finally shared what had happened with his mom. In response, she called the sheikhs to recite the Quran over him, believing that he was demon-possessed.
