School Starts

Dear Hungry4HIM family, We are excited as we enter the new year on what plans God has for us in the ministry! At this time the children at our partner schools in Western Kenya are starting up what is their new calendar school year. There will be new incoming children to the program and saying good-bye to those who graduated out of it last December. It is a time of a lot of transition and moving parts. Pray for wisdom of the Kenyan leaders on the ground as they make difficult decisions. At this time contracts are re-negotiated with the teachers and staff at the schools. It is always difficult especially in Kenya to keep good teachers for little pay …

New Year

As we enter another New Year we are reminded of why we do what we do! It is so simple yet we tend to miss the basics sometimes. James 1:27 says – Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.

Year End Reflections

Dear Hungry4HIM family, As we finish out the year and enter this holiday season we are truly grateful for all that we have seen this year. Our organization has gone through many positive changes. We welcomed our first staff members, improved the structure of the organization, increased the amount of communication with our partners in Kenya and are transitioning from a working board to one that oversees. We are thankful for all of our supporters and advocates who partner with us to make it possible. We know that the Lord wants to continue to use the Hungry4HIM family to do great things in the coming year. We are hanging on for the ride and look forward to seeing what He …

What Orphan Crisis?

WHAT ORPHAN CRISIS? The facts of Africa’s 53 million and counting orphan crisis are horrifying. The total number of orphans is greater than the number of children in Canada, Sweden, Ireland, Norway, and Denmark combined. This number continues to grow at a rate of about 2.1 million orphans per year. In Kenya alone there are approximately 2.4 million orphans with more than 700 new ones every day! You play a small part in being Christ’s hands and feet in this world today by partnering with us to change a real child’s life!

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 …

Teachers – Beyond the Classroom

Hungry4HIM’s primary goal is to help meet basic needs for orphans and children in poverty AND provide an education. The teachers who serve at our partner schools are a huge part of this goal. These men and women love the Lord and are not just educating in the classroom. They are tutoring beyond school hours, listening to these children and speaking into their lives. They are teaching with grace and compassion and sharing their love for Jesus everyday. Please join us in praying for these servants as they shepherd and disciple the next generation.

Building updates

We are excited to see all the changes going on and the provision for larger projects that are always on-going. Below is a summary of the current buildings that are under construction or were recently completed, thanks to our partner ministries. 1. The teachers housing building was recently completed and six of the staff moved in approx two months ago. This provides free housing on school campus for them and their families. They are now also able to work more with the children after “normal” school hours are over since they do not have to travel long distances. 2. One of the new two-story classroom/administrative buildings is almost completed but already in use! 3. A much-needed clinic is under construction …

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. Give – It costs …
