Love Has A Face


When I talk about the work of Kenya REAL Ministry, I often get curiously asked about the amount or the size of our programs....How many children are in your Feeding Program? How many children are sponsored? How many families attend the church services? And I honestly have a hard time with numbers. I can tell you that the slum where our kids come from has 250,000 people in it. I can tell you the amount of children has risen to 300 at Calvary Hope School because a nearby orphanage can't give these children an education so Pastor Henry said, "Let them learn here". I can tell you there has been an 800% rise in children under 5 who need treatment because of hunger related illnesses and 100% of children at our school do not have running water or electricity in their home. But love is not about numbers. Love is about real people. Love is the face of our friends in Kenya. Love is each Teacher spending time with our students. Love is in our children's faces giggling to get a selfie with you. Love is in the heart of Pastor Henry selflessly inviting more children in. God is love and He created each one of us, and loves each one of us deeply just as we are. Just before I wrote this email, Pastor Henry told me that a grandmother of one of the orphans, came to him this morning. She sat and told of her struggles. She shared that she had been married to a man who had abandoned her. And Pastor Henry shared God's love with her. Angels are rejoicing because this grandmother gave her life to Jesus! Our Kenyan friends are not another statistic or number, and neither are you! We are fearfully and wonderfully made. Each child at our school has a story. Each child is loved just as they are. We want them to know that! Pray with us. Join us in supporting what God is doing in our children's lives. We are about relationships...REALationships based on the greatest love of all, Jesus. Love has a face! Luke 15:4-7 "Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Does he not leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, 'Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.' I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent." Kenya REAL
