 Dear Hungry 4 Him family and co workers in Christ,

  We at H4H all hope and pray that you are all well in what has been a trying and difficult 2020 year. We wish to take a few moments and reflect and pray over the needs of our ministry, our supporters, and for this country as a nation.

  We praise you our Lord and Saviour for your grace and providing through these troubling, uncertain times. May your mercy, protection, presence, and divine guidance continue to be upon us. May our faith NOT waver, but GROW amidst this pandemic, national unrest, political turmoil, economic struggles, natural disasters, and the evil that seems to be spreading throughout our nation. May we all remain Strong and Faithful to your calling upon our Lives. 

  We thank you for YOUR prevailing will over all this.In Jesus’ name we pray.

  On behalf of the Hungry 4 Him Board we wish to thank each one of our supporters for your commitment, faithfulness, support, and your many, many prayers over the years. Together we have provided for so many needs of our brothers and sisters  in Kenya. From buying land, building classrooms, providing teaching supplies, clean water, healthy food, paying teachers, and teaching and showing the Love of Jesus to children who are in need and hungry for Him.

   May His glorious peace and presence be abundant in all your lives.

   In Christ,

Looking Back & Forward – March 2, 2020 – Newsletter

Reflecting back on my time in Kenya, I have seen the Lord moved in the administration of the schools, the teachers, and the children at Benard’s Vision School. These children do have such a hard life, and are hungry, in addition, have many needs (food, shelter, clothing, books, etc.), but in other ways they are thriving and growing spiritually. Sponsors and Board members of Hungry4Him give us opportunities to impact these children in many ways, since we are their voice.  So if you are someone who sponsors the children or just contributes to Hungry4Him please know that every penny does count to do amazing things for the orphans of Kenya. 

The schools are very much thriving and the children just passed their exams and did very well on all their tests.  Psalms 118:25 Oh God save us, God grant us success,” was the prayer of the students of Benard’s Vision School for this year.   The graduating class would of course like to go on to high school but most only go through 8th grade because they have no money to pursue their studies.  Most will need a sponsor to help them go to high school, and that is why a high school on the grounds of Benard’s Vision School is a symbol of hope for those children.  Seeing the high school being built little by little brings much joy to those children. A completed high school would be an answer to prayer since the know the only answer out of the poverty they live in everyday is an education.  

We as a board are grateful to the Lord and to those who sponsor the children and support Hungry4Him, we make a difference in the lives of the orphan children in Kenya.

Through ALL of your hard work and charitable contributions, we were able to provide to Benard funds necessary to complete his Christmas vision. The following is an excerpt from Benard: “The Hungry4Him Program took place on 18th December of 2018 at Benard’s Vision School, Ahero. The purpose of the Hungry4Him program was to feed guardian families of the children studying in BVS AHERO with distribution of food. Our goal was to: -Share the joy of festivity as a family -Reach many families -Engage the community” Through the Lords blessings on Hungry 4 Him sponsors and Benards Vision School, we were able to provide that need! God is good, All the time! Thank you all so much. Feeding the Children The following is a note from Benard on feeding the children and familes. We love hearing directly from Benard on this, as it is very good to hear first hand the impact! “The program was a success. We thank the Almighty God. We reached our goal by distributing food to 100 families and we were excited with all the help we got to make it a success. That is from the finance part to the services provided of feeding them., not forgetting, we received an overwhelming positive feedback from both the children and the guardians of how the program was beneficial and blissful to them. The gesture was very well received. This program involved the families/caregivers of the BVS children in a unique and generous way. Food was shared to many families and in abundance. There is capacity for more families and this program will continue as it has been every year.” Everyone, this is what Hungry 4 Him is about. Taking care of these children. Feeding them. Clothing them. Providing education for them. Thank you, thank you. Jesus’ light is shining bright here. Building Foundations Benards son, Abraham got married in December, 2018. Marriage is such a beautiful gift from God! May we all join together and pray for a long future ahead of them with their new marriage. Abraham has a strong heart for children and a passion for teaching. Donors Contributions At Work Benard and Pamela has made a special note to all of the contributors and donors: “With the experience from this year, Hungry4Him program indicates the following to be necessary for the next one; •Early deployment of funds •Reaching even more families. We want to thank our sponsors of Hungry4Him Ministries for their support in finance and their service of the lord towards our children and their families. May God bless you abundantly.

Thoughts of a 2017 Mission Trip

As I sit to write this, I find myself feeling very blessed, and cannot forget those beautiful faces in Kenya. Those beautiful faces that are young, but have seen so much in their short life, the good and bad, but with stories of the Lord’s amazing grace. Being part of the Hungry 4 Him Board is very personal for me. I have never been on a mission trip in my life, local, or overseas, and honestly never saw myself doing that. My daughter was the missionary, since she is a fulltime one. She went to Kenya 4 years ago and came back with some amazing stories of how the Lord was moving in the lives of the children and teachers. We started to get bibles for those who graduate from 8th grade. Since many may never be able to finish going on to high school or college for that matter without the funds to do so. We started to pray over each child (whose names we were given), and we knew the Lord had a plan, a purpose, for each of them. After she left for full time missions, I continued to get the bibles and pray over those children. As I prayed over the bibles, something began to stir in me from the Lord, so when the opportunity came for me to go to Kenya I could not do anything else but go. Going back to the board of Hungry4Him, these are people who volunteer time to help the less fortunate. Orphans who have nothing, not sure what the future holds but hold on to faith in the Lord. People who love the children and want to help feed, clothe them and want to be sure they have meals and how an education can make a difference. We want to make a difference in their lives and cannot do that without our sponsors. In Kenya over, and over again, I felt the Lord speaking to these children in so many ways. He wanted them to know that their lives matter to Him, and that He loves them very much. Each one is precious to Him and we can all make a difference to give them hope and a future, one child at a time. Barb Roithner, Vice President of Hungry4Him
