It Will Take Our Village

Our long and continuing work in Kenya is entering the 21st century with a small, but innovative and important project. As the AIDS virus continues to destroy families and threatens the very future of life in Kenya, orphans are paying a high price. Hearing orphans surely suffer too, but the deaf child is often singled out to be abandoned and sometimes worse.

These frightened and desperate children have no hope, no future in a country that sees them as flawed children to be discarded. But God has a plan for them--and for us! There is room at the inn for those who find their to Sam's Place.

Will you help Sam's Place grow legs? There is a need for funds to support our orphans. Monthly contributions cover the cost of education, clothing, meals, medical care, and other operational expenses that support the children in their daily life at Sam's Place. There is a place for you in saving these deaf orphans.

It has been written that it takes a village to raise a child. We have witnessed that reality in our own churches where all have taken a role in raising our children. These deaf orphans need our village--all of us who are God's children. Our village at South 11th and Willis and those from other congregations everywhere, all of us can live the lesson Jesus has left us. Help us to help Sam's Place grow legs.
