No Place Like Home

The faces in this home are OUR brothers and 

sisters. This was our physical HOME for 2 weeks

 and a big part of our HEARTS still dwell in 
                                         
this place. As you sit in your HOME reading 
                                         
this,please fight for these children to STAY in

their own HOME. Your prayers and financial

gifts will send a message of CONSISTENCY that

 is an incredible picture of OUR JESUS to these 

kids!! (Please read a post by Kristie and 

"Feeding the Orphans" below for details...)

 NOTE FROM KRISTIE: (2/8/11)
What if all you wanted was a home? 
 A bed?  
A place to be safe and a place where you always have enough to eat?
Meet some of the children of Charity Kingdom Orphanage.
They have become our family.  Part of our family in Ghana.
Here are Sydney’s “sisters”.
These children have a house.  Right now.  At the end of May, their rent is gone.  They will have nowhere, again.  And they know what it is like to have NOTHING.  Nowhere to lay their heads and nothing to eat.  We need to help them raise $10,000 for two years’ rent.  This seems like such a huge amount, but not for 
our God!
Matthew 19:26 – With God all things are possible.
We met John last summer.  None of us can remember how exactly we met, but we did.  God joined our hearts.  He gave these two some of the same visions.
Coincidence?  No, His perfect hand.
We have partnered with John.  Sydney worked hard last summer to find food sponsors for his 23 children. (Now he is Daddy to almost twice that many.)   He told her about a village that needed clean water.  That water well has been funded and we are waiting for it to be completed.  In that village, the chief gave John 10 acres.  The vision is to build a school, vocational technology center, medical clinic and a home for the orphaned children.
However, all of these things are in the future. Right now, we need to raise the money for John and Irene and their “children” to keep their house.  This is their home.  This is where the children know they are loved.  The kids have a large area to play soccer, a gate to protect them and even a playground.  Will you help them keep their house, a bed to sleep in, and protection?  Click here to donate to this project.  Please designate the funds for "CKO".
Please help us spread the word and help these beautiful children keep their HOME!

*Note: There is a donation tracker on the Feeding the Orphans website so you can keep up with the progress of the home. Thank you all for truly loving the least of these!
