This is what the Lord almighty says: Administer true justice; show mercy and compassion to one another.  Do not oppress the widow or the fatherless, the alien or the poor.  In your hearts do not think evil of each other. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .Zachariah 7:9-10

    The needs of the people are many, the living conditions are similar to what our ancestors faced over 150 years ago as they began to settle across the plains in the USA.  The village people live in mud houses, the lucky ones with a tin roof, the others with a thatched roof.  They go to the river for their daily water needs and rely on the  rains to water their crops.  The fields are plowed using bulls and a single plow blade, just like in the old movies.  Education is a privilege many can not afford.

   This ministry wants to help the elderly and their orphaned grandchildren live a more worry free, healthy life.  Through sponsorship we can provide food and medicine for an elderly person, then what money they earn can go towards educating their grandchildren.  If a child is sponsored, then the funds earned can go towards food in the house.  If we can purchase chickens or goats for the families, then they can feed themselves.  If we can install water tanks we can prevent typhoid. If we are able to purchase farming equipment, a small vehicle, computers or similar items, then we can begin to earn money that will go towards the betterment of living conditions for these people and rely less on sponsorships.  No matter how we are able to help, whether through individual sponsorships or through projects,  It is a win-win situation.

    The average life expectancy of an adult Kenyan is 45 yrs old.  Our Missionary has discovered there is an entire generation missing between 45 to 65 years of age due mainly to the spread and stigma associated with HIV/AIDS.  There is a small population of elderly however, who have basically been forgotten.  Their children have passed and they find themselves the only living relative to their grandchildren.  These elderly, now in their 60's to 90's are faced with trying to feed, clothe, and educate their grandchildren while they have no income to do it with, nor the strength to persevere.

    We have found there are numerous organizations all over the world to assist the orphaned child yet there are very few to assist the elderly.

    Many countries have a social security or welfare system in place, but Kenya is not one of them.  If you don't work and earn your money, then you don't eat or get the proper medicine when you are sick.

    Are you willing to put food on the table of these elderly for a mere $30.00 a month?

    There are thousands of orphaned children in Kenya.  Many because of HIV/AIDS, but also because of the ongoing malaria pandemic due to a large mosquito population; and Typhoid due to drinking what water they can find (usually from mud holes during rainy season, or the dirty rivers where they also bathe and do their laundry).  These children are taken in by neighbors or distant relatives who mean well but when they cannot afford to feed the extra person they often exploit them as cheap house help, field labor, or even for sexual pleasure.

    Are you willing to sponsor a child for $30.00 a month?  This small amount can save a life and give hope where there is none today.

    Installing water tanks at the homes of our participating Pastors, is just one way we help the elderly and the orphaned grandchildren they are raising.  We have many other projects such as blanket, shoe, clothing, and food distribution;  assisting with the plowing and weeding of the fields so there is a harvest to eat;  plant fruit trees, purchase chickens and goats to help the elderly to help themselves; teach solar cooking to reduce the cost of cooking fuels and to save the forest land.

    Please check out our projects page to see what we have been doing and what we would like to do.

    Just some pictures to give you an insight into Kenyan life and the fun and quirky things you can do and see while there.  They also give you an idea of what our missionary goes through while she is in Kenya trekking through the country-side doing home visitations and/or teaching the gospel.
