I Will Come To You...



Many people have asked me how they can be involved in caring for orphans and giving to the poor. There are many ways to live out the James 1:27, call to care for widows and orphans. While everyone is called to "care" not everyone is called to adopt. Sponsoring a child is a way to "adopt" with out bringing a child home. There are 147 million orphans in the world, they are all waiting for the promise parents.


This is Purity...her name reflects her personality. She is a sweet 7 year old girl, living in Kisii, Kenya without a mother or father. She is a total orphan. She is hungry with out a big variety of food, or resources. She walks about 1/4 of a mile to get water several times a day, and about 2 miles everyday to school. Her diet consists of a cup of millet for breakfast, no lunch, and posho (cornmeal) and beans for dinner. She lives without heat, or electricity or any modern conveniences. There is no running water or indoor toilets and she lives on a mud floor.


Purity needs a sponsorship to provide her three meals a day, medical care and education so she can go to university. When we invest in a young child, they have the opportunity to grow properly and break the cycle poverty.
Justin, as you can tell by his smile, is a vibrant young man. He lives under the same conditions of Purity. He is 13 years old and dreams of being a pilot when he grows up. He is a great student and good helper around the orphanage. He loves to sing worship songs with the other children and is a leader. He desperately needs a sponsorship so he can receive proper care and education, in order to fulfill his dreams.
Justin and Purity once lived in homes under the care of their parents. They once had someone to look after them supplying their needs. They were not concerned for their future. Like our own children, they didn't have a care in the world. Disease, poverty and hunger changed their circumstances. Their parents died leaving them to fend for themselves.
Now, with the help of Remember the Poor, The Mission, the orphan ministry in Kenya, and You, we can bring hope to the hopeless. Your sponsorship will provide your sponsored child with, three substantial meals a day, medical care, and education. We can change the world together, one orphan at a time. Please pray and ask God how you can provide for the needs of these children, and the love from a parent that they deserve. Click here, to minister to the "least of these."
"I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you." ~ Jesus ~

My sister, I thank God for placing you in my life. I am resigned to the fact that I am going to be a mushy sentimental cry baby for the rest of my days because God is so good I just can't hold back the tears.

We are all called, but not all obey.. I thank you with my whole heart for your words and deeds. God doesn't need us to feed these kids but is giving us the opportunity to be their voice and to show them what Jesus would most certainly do. Nine kids of your own, tired and speaking up for those who can't speak for themselves.... a girl after my own heart.

Love you, love you, LOVE YOU!
