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.

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.

An average 300 babies are abandoned every day in Kenya. 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.

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.

A Dream Coming True

What a day of celebration! We prayed, feasted, dedicated and marveled at the goodness of God. I had been anticipating this day for many months—the official opening of Philemon House, a first of its kind privately-run residential facility for juvenile offenders after they're released from prison.

Africa, Here We Come

This week I'll be boarding a plane to visit ministry partners in four East Africa nations: DR Congo, Rwanda, Uganda and Kenya. Thanks to your generous gifts to the Food Ministry we are together changing lives by providing sustainable forms of food—the kind that lays eggs!—and bulk foods and milk to provide the physical nutrition needed so they have the strength to be ministered to spiritually as well.

Lunch ‘n Love

The children living in the slums of Nakuru, Kenya, don't get much to eat at home because their parents earn less than $2 a day on average. Many parents in this poverty-stricken community are so beaten down and filled with hopelessness that they do not even care whether their children attend school or not.

Happy Bellies, Big Smiles

I wanted to cry tears of sadness when I first heard about Kandy (not her real name). She weighed 35 pounds when she first arrived at Cindi's Hope in Nairobi, Kenya—but she was just 12 years old. Her ribs could easily be counted, and she couldn't button a shirt over her enlarged tummy. Her intake medical exam revealed severe malnutrition and HIV/AIDS.

Lost but Found

A young boy carefully picked through piles of rank-smelling, filthy garbage hoping to find some food scraps for his aching belly or something he could exchange for money. What the preoccupied boy didn't notice was that, just as carefully, a nearby man was watching him with sad but compassionate eyes.
