Neverland in Naivasha

We could hear their cherub voices singing praises before we even laid eyes on them. They were the students at Cindi's Hope Academy in Naivasha, Kenya. Then came the rush to surround us, faces beaming with eagerness to greet their visitors, and then to lead us excitedly to the new highlight of their campus: bright, new playground equipment!

Here to Serve Them, and You

Widows are made when husbands die prematurely. In their absence, women and children in poor nations are often left with nothing—no money for rent, medicine or even food. No government assistance ever comes.

Mercy Shines Through

The story I am about to tell you is very disturbing, yet I feel that, as those who care deeply about the victims of sexual violence, especially those most innocent, it is a story that must be told—not for the purpose of emotional manipulation, but to give you information on which you can act.

Victims of Sexual Violence Fund

Over the past few decades, armies of men have been fighting in East Africa's wars, taking millions of lives and displacing millions more. Rape has now also become a weapon of war. Many victims find themselves infected with AIDS or pregnant, carrying offspring of the "enemy." Married victims are cast off by their husbands. Unmarried victims are marked and spurned for life. All find themselves rejected by their families and local communities, casualties of war. The brutality has become so epidemic that Eastern Congo has been labeled the "rape capital of the world" by a U.N. Special Representative.

Feeling Special at Christmas—and All Year Long

Every Christmas we do our best to bless the ladies at the Women's Wellness Center in Goma, DR Congo, with something extra to remind them how loved they are. In 2013 we gave new shoes to each woman and their children, thanks to our generous donors. We did this again last November during our visit, and we also provided extra food to help them make it through the holiday season.

Cindi’s: a Blessed Hope for Many

Having just returned from Kenya, I cannot help but boast in what the Lord is doing through our new partnership with Cindi’s Hope, a ministry that rescues abandoned and sexually abused children in Nairobi and throughout the country. We first visited the Hope Academy campus located in Eastleigh neighborhood, one of the worst slum areas of Nairobi. It is here that the government brings Cindi the children nobody else wants. In their secure compound we witnessed the restorative effects of loving care, nutritional food and biblical teaching in the healing of wounded young lives.

Worked to Death

She’s been a workhorse, selflessly serving victims of sexual violence at the Women’s Wellness Center (WWC) in Goma, DR Congo. During her years of faithful service, she has protected vulnerable women and children from further rape and sexual abuse as they traveled to and from their homes to the WWC where they received biblical trauma counseling, vocational training, food and safe water, and medical care,
