I (John) hereby present and recommend brother Herbert Kabuye for help. He is 17 yrs born on the 22nd of Dec 1991.
He has a mother, but lost his dad. His mother is a security guard and only earns $45 a month. She has 6 children all of whom do not go to school. He was directed to our church by a pastor who attended the pastor’s conference.
I wondered why this big boy greeted me while kneeling down. Certainly I found him to be looking for help. He says that if he is helped, he will help his family. He also told me that his last resort will be to join the army if things fail him. I have asked him to be patient until next year, and he now lives with us.
Can you imagine what he was dressed in when he came? Rags with patches!!! For this time as we wait, he is going to be in charge of cooking porridge for the kids breakfast every day.
Luke 12:33 Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will not be exhausted, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys.
One donor sold a piece of furniture this week for $500…enough to feed, educate, medicate, clothe and share the gospel with one of the waiting children for an entire year!
Luke 14:27 And anyone who does not carry his cross and follow me cannot be my disciple.
ESV commentary: “To take up the cross means to renounce selfish ambition.” Check out RICE NIGHT as one such way to engage in carrying our cross-and to care for the hungry and orphaned.
Matthew Henry commentary: “We must not indulge our ease and appetite, for then it will be hard to bear toil, and weariness, and need, for Christ. We frequently meet with crosses in the way of duty…”
