Nancy (second from left), her grandmother and two other friends holding the material we bought for her sewing machine Dear Friends, Isn’t it amazing how the simplest thing to us can be a life-changing miracle for others? One of those happened a few months ago […]
Below are just a few of the many testimonies we receive about lives being impacted and transformed by the Education Ministry of Heaven’s Family.
It's difficult to describe Nairobi's Mathare slum, because there is nothing to which it can be compared where you and I live. But try to imagine 500,000 people crammed into a hillside community of tens of thousands of tiny shacks clad with rusted pieces of corrugated metal.

Abigael Chemtai at the Kapenguria School for the Blind. Dear Friends, God takes even the worst of circumstances and changes them to orchestrate good and bring lives into His kingdom. That is exactly what happened with Maria Nekesa, now age 7, who is a dear […]
Besides food, the one thing that impoverished people around the world desire for their children is an education. They know that education is their children's only hope to escape the cycle of poverty.

An opportunity to gain a valuable education, a marketable skill, employment, tools for a trade, or a loan to start a business can make the difference between poverty and prosperity. That is why Heaven's Family works to provide, through our numerous focused funds, various opportunities to the "least of these" among Christ's followers. Opportunities give the poor a chance to help themselves through their own efforts.
