Inspire The Child

Breaking The Cycle Of Poverty By Educating Young Kenyan Women

Inspiration is the spark that leads to change. Our dream is to create a home for orphaned girls filled with love that will give them a new family. Inspire The Child will also construct a new educational facility for K-8th grade girls. This facility will prepare the girls for a brighter future and support their re-introduction to society. The school will provide counseling and medical attention, and teach them the skills that will empower them to be a strong and independent new generation of Kenyan women.

 

Mothers Fighting For Others wants to build a home. We want to build a school. We want to build a small community for these girls to learn, to be loved, to believe and take pride in themselves, and to dream big. This is the just the beginning of the journey. I am so grateful to be going down this path. So, I'll be heading back to Kenya next month to scout out three parcels of land. We'll have a better idea of what our needs will be next month.

I am so excited to get started on this program. I hope you are too!!

Rocky - I would still love to chat with you sometime about your projects in Kenya.  As I mentioned to you on Twitter before, we have been sponsoring a girl in Kenya since 1995 who just graduated from Compassion International's program.  We decided to take on another one last month and watch our new "daughter" grow.

I just read Jeffs' re-blog, and saw a comment from someone else, that it was a re-blog from your channel. Now how did I not know you had your own channel here? Well, I'm subscribed now =)  And I left a comment for you on Jeffs' post too ;-)

It is always great to see charity at work. I wish some could start here in America, most don't know that the homeless rate in America has tripled in just the past five years or that the people in America has doubled in the last five.

The greatest nation on earth spends more time abroad than at home and we are hated for it.

Recently I dealt with a teenager, not mine, that was doing drugs, not going home at night,

and just generally on a collision course with doom.  After reading him the right act, and telling him that his parents may not be perfect, but that God gave them to him, I realized I had made an impact.  My thoughts are give, give, give, never right people off, especially kids, they deserve us to do what is right, and be what is good and right for them.  I praise you for all your doing. 

My prayer is that God will richely reward your efforts, put him first, and trust him, and the keys to the kingdom are yours.  Praying for you.  Angel Thomas

Racquel,

I think it is wonderful what you are doing.  The longer I live on this planet the more I realize the impact that we can have on other people's lives.

Simon, You know it!

Bryant, I am VERY excited. I 'll let you know all the details when we return.

It seems your dream to help these children keeps expanding. That's great. I love to see people have a dream to help others, and continue to expand it. I pray that God will bless your endeavors "exceedingly, abundantly, above all you can ask or even think". =D

Ephesians 3:19-21 (King James Version) 19And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. 20Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, 21Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.
