Thank You and Happy New Year!

Thank You! Thank you very much to those who helped us color in our Christmas tree!  Our goal was to raise $1500 for Giving Tuesday.  Between then and the end of the year we raised $4,579.48.  Thank you so much!  Because of the donations we were able to bless the kids with a wonderful Thanksgiving Day and birthday and Christmas party.  We first celebrated Jesus’ birthday with our former street kids (the sponsored students). On Christmas Eve, which fell on…

A Hope That Doesn’t Disappoint: Jesus

Greetings Friends! With “hope against hope,” we continue to trust and believe God to show up and do mighty things in our midst, as we carry on with His work, through His grace.  The phrase “hope against hope” was birthed out of Romans 4:18, where it says, “Who against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations,”.  It signifies a very strong hope that something the Lord has planned will come to pass.  Here,…

Jesus Changes People!

Greetings friends!! Some of us on Mother’s Day at the Center. For those whom He foreknew He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, in order that He might be the firstborn among many brothers. Romans 8:29 Because of Jesus We continue to see the lives of street children transformed, and it’s all because of Jesus.  He has taught us how to treat one another, and His ways are different from the ways of the world. …

Great Kids in Need of Sponsors

Since the beginning of this year we’ve managed to help three new boys leave the street and return to school! No matter what’s going on in the world, the Lord continues to pursuit and rescue the least of these in societies. Besides the three new boys who have started school we have 3 who have been with us for some time who are in need of sponsors. Since leaving the street they’ve really appreciated the opportunity given to them and…

You can help us change the lives of some precious former street boys

We’re so grateful to be able to partner with God and His people to change the lives of children living on the streets of Kenya. It’s wonderful to see them heal and grow into the people the Lord created them to be. We’ve now seen 28 former street kids successfully come off of the street and reconcile with relatives, return to school or live at our Center in Kibera and attend school. We’re so proud of them so I’m going…

Glimpses of God’s Glory in Kenya

At the Angela Rescue Center in Kenya we’re seeing Psalm 96:3 lived out.  It says “Tell of His glory among the nations, His wonderful deeds among all the peoples.” In Kenya we’re seeing His glory and telling people about it.  God IS glorious!  One way, I believe, that we see His glory here on earth is through the wonderful things that He does in our lives.  The times when he shows up and touches people, influences circumstances, or heals our…

How you can win too, just like our former street kids

Life is a battle, between good and evil. Between the Kingdom of God and the realm of satan, as well as this world’s system. Between light and darkness. We are constantly fighting it out. Making decisions that favor one kingdom over another. Working with street children in Africa I have seen the battle play out very blatantly, with very obvious consequences to choices made. I’ve seen repeatedly, when one of them is about to come up out of the destructive…

A “Fireball” at Twilight – and what it means for us

During a recent visit to Phoenix, Arizona, on June 2nd, 2016, I was outside late one night talking on the phone to people in Kenya and praying. It was well past 3:00 a.m. when I decided to head back inside the house to go to bed. Just as I was about to grab the door handle to go back inside the house, the Lord spoke to my spirit and said “No, stay.” I had experienced a similar instance before in…
