My life will never be the same again. It doesn’t matter all the amazing things we do with and for Jesus, if we neglect giving children on the streets a home. If we neglect this, we have done nothing here in Malawi.

There are about 20 children (6 yrs to 18 yrs) from the streets who come to our Kings Kids Program each Sunday at City Pentecostal Church in our city of Blantyre. They come for an hour and we teach them about Jesus and give them Malawian donuts and Sobo (soda no bubbles). These are only a handful of the children who are living on the streets of our city.  

These children are living and sleeping on the streets among dangerous and abusive adults who on-goingly harm them. Their parents have abandoned them because of their own addiction, mental illness, poverty, or death. Some parents or adult relatives send their children to the streets to beg, because they see it as a profitable business. Some children have run away from their homes because of these issues and continuous abuse.

Sunday, May 22, one precious child went from the street to a loving forever family in an hour. Henry has made this issue very personal for me. (and all of us here serving within our ministry). We are seeking God’s guidance on what He wants us to do. What part we will play in this issue. Please pray for Kelsey and I personally and for our ministry, Zikomo Yesu/ WAY Ministries, as we seek the will of God.

Word of wisdom to anyone who has never met God in a deep and intimate way. You will never see the face of God until you are willing to be inconvenienced and made uncomfortable for the causes that are dear to Him.

BE INCONVENIENCED! BE EMBARRASSED! BE ACKWARD! BE DISTURBED!  LET YOUR HEARTS AND MINDS BE WRECKED! BE UNABLE TO EAT, DRINK OR SLEEP FOR THE THINGS THAT BREAK THE HEART OF GOD! BE UNABLE TO REST UNTIL YOU CONQUER EVIL WITH JUSTICE. THAT IS MY PRAYER FOR YOU!   To learn more about these kids and how you can make a difference for one child- go to www.stekakids.com

Children don't need an institution, they need a home and a family. Thank you Helen & God Knows!

Never underestimate the power of family- to heal, to equip,to empower, to build, to restore, to redeem, and to love. That is how God designed it from the beginning. The power of a family who knows God. Henry has a safe place to sleep. Amen!
