A Full Mind, Belly, and Heart


A Full Mind, Belly, and Heart

Vanessa, a 6-year-old girl, lives in a rural Kenyan village where she shares a small one-room shack with her mother, father, and younger sister. She happily dresses in the same blue uniform each day and makes her way down the 1-mile path of red dirt road that she walks to school.

Generations for Jesus

I recently had the opportunity to travel to Kenya to meet with various partners of the Education and Critical Medical Needs Ministries located there. The partners that I was able to visit have all been working for many years with Heaven's Family. It was such a blessing over the week-long time I was in Kenya, to be able to travel to meet with these partners, face to face, and to get to see the work they are doing on the ground.

Catching Up!

You'd never guess it, but in the above picture, Brenda was not yet rescued. She was participating in a feeding program in Guatemala supported by Heaven's Family. As our partner organization worked with her, it became apparent that Brenda was being abused. Instead of seeing progress with her, the partner saw that she was continuing to be malnourished, that her hair was falling out, and that the orange tint in what should have been black hair was not going away.

Smiling despite the stench

A minefield of dog feces and a diarrhea-filled diaper were just a few of the items we had to tiptoe around today to get to young Joseph's home. For outsiders like us, the stench of the slum where eight-year-old Joseph lives was extremely potent. Joseph, however, is accustomed to the smell.

No Longer Down in the Dumps

You'd never guess that Sharon used to work at the city dump in Guatemala. Along with the other pickers, she would search through the mounds of trash left behind by the garbage trucks—looking for something she could sell to earn a living, or some food scraps she could salvage to feed her daughter and herself. The work was dangerous and Sharon has many scars—physical as well as emotional. She longed for a better future for her daughter.
