Stacy.

Most children in the U.S. don’t experience losing loved ones until they are older. They see life through rose colored glasses and enjoy the ease of being a kid. Life in the villages and towns of Kenya is different. The children there experience loss from the time they are born. It is all around them. And some of them are touched by it far too many times. Meet Stacy. This beautiful girl has been at this school since it began in 2004. Her huge smile and shining eyes light up a room! She is full of joy and peace and knows Jesus is her Savior. But her life has been far from easy. Stacy’s dad passed away when she was …

The Impact: A Letter to our Donors

Many people give just $25 each month to feed and educate a child they will never meet. They trust that we are using their money properly and ensuring that these children are happy and healthy. Well, let me tell you, they are! While in Kenya Justin and I experienced the impact our donors are making in the lives of these children and the kingdom of heaven. It’s huge! We were surrounded by 480 children at one school and 300 children at another, all of whom sang about Jesus, laughed and played, and told us how much they love their schools. Because of you… They have a school where they feel safe and secure. They have classrooms where they can learn. …

Fill the Pantry Campaign

Hungry4HIM helps meet many needs of our partner schools.  The four pillars of this ministry are food, clothing (school uniforms), education and discipleship.  For the next 30 days we are going to focus on raising money to boost our general fund so we can help feed more children.  100% of our child sponsorship donations go to feed these orphans.  However, until every child is sponsored that money is not enough.  So we supplement each month from our general fund. Will you join our challenge to raise enough money to feed 100 children for a year??  That amount is HUGE but we know God can do it!  Here are several ways you can join the challenge. 1.

Why We Do What We Do

People often ask why we are doing this….feeding children who are half a world away.  Some days I wonder the same thing.  But then I remember my trip in 2004 where  I saw children, young children, who didn’t know when they would eat again.  Toddlers who sometimes didn’t eat anything the whole day.  Mamas giving their only crumbs of food to their little ones.  My heart was broken. Permanently broken.  We saw a need and prayed for a way to meet it.  We know God’s heart is for the fatherless and His heart breaks just like ours.  Over the past ten years we have cried, prayed, struggled and rejoiced as we have watched Him provide for these little ones, HIS children. …

What’s Different?

An orphan in Kenya is a child who either has only one parent or both parents are gone. Many of the children we support still live at home with their mother or father but are still considered orphans. The schools Hungry 4 Him currently works with in Ahero and Wachara, Kenya are not orphanages. They are orphan day schools. Pastor Benard, who founded these schools, believes children are better off in a home environment. When a child loses both parents Pastor Benard and the school leaders work to find a family or guardian for the child. The children continue to learn responsibility in their homes as well as receive an education, hot meals and fellowship with other children at school. …
