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.

Growing Entrepreneurs

Eliphas has what some call an entrepreneurial spark. Growing up in rural Kenya, he worked hard just to survive. He worked faithfully on his family’s small farm, especially during harvest, and eventually quit school so he could spend more time on the farm. When he married, his father gave him a small portion of his land so he could support his family.

Sowing Good Seed

In the dusty, parched outback of southern Kenya an oasis of new life has sprung up. It’s called Philemon House, and it's a place of both refuge and rebirth for Kenya’s youth who were once incarcerated (aftercare), or beforehand if their probation officers believe they can be rehabilitated—and to avoid making they into hardened criminals as a result of prison time (this is mainly done for the girls).

“Help us, Jesus!”

I tried to imagine what it would be like to endure a Category 5 hurricane generating 185 mph sustained winds, dumping 3 feet of rain, and pushing a wall of seawater over 20 feet tall across the island, submerging all but a few small areas of high ground, incessantly pounding everything in its path to shreds—and even moving large cement block homes hundreds of feet off their foundations. Most trees were uprooted or snapped off; those that remained were barren, leafless skeletons.
