REACH A CHILD LIKE MICHAEL
Michael lives in Kibera Kenya, the largest urban slum in Africa. Almost half the population are children under the age of 15. The majority of these children have never been introduced to Jesus!
Michael, unlike many of the children around him, is fortunate. He attends a school and gets to sleep in a shack. Many of the children around him are orphans or homeless and sleep along the railway embankments and beside rubbish dumps. There is no time to play in Michael’s life. Being the eldest of 6 children and with no father, he has to help take care of his family.
Life is hard. There are no toilet facilities, running water or electricity. Poor sanitation has led to rampant diseases and alarming numbers of dying children. Michael has lost many friends. He and those around him are surrounded by hopelessness!
We are passionate about reaching these vulnerable children with the Word of God and have started partnering with local schools in the slum.
Michael’s school started using the study: God What is Your Name? He excitedly shares how something amazing happened as he was doing the study. He came to a saving knowledge of God and his life has never been the same again. He is now a passionate 11 year old evangelist that shares his faith and hope with everyone around him.
There are now over 400 children studying God’s Word using Precept resources on a weekly basis in the slum of Kibera. We praise God for this! But these are just 400! There are countless more children that are desperate for God and His Word! We need your help in reaching these children.
Won’t you prayerfully consider sponsoring as many books as possible for these boys and girls? We would love for each child to study the Word using their own study book instead of having to share
