The following update was posted on April 13, 2021. Shortly after publishing this post, more donations propelled us beyond the half way mark.
God is so awesome.
We are approaching the half way mark!
I’m so excited! God just keeps on blessing us! We have raised almost half our goal in less than two weeks! We only have $550 left to achieve our goal. How exciting is that!
The donations we’ve received are making an impact already. Upon learning about how we are trying to help, Owen has written a special message of appreciation. Here’s what he had to say:
“My name is Owen Nginja from Zimbabwe. I find it such a blessing to be taking my time writing to amazing people like you to express my heartfelt gratitude. It’s our prayers continually with my wife that the Lord who is great enough to bless and take care of you that he will richly bless, prosper and keep you from all harmful things that life and the enemy throw at people to destroy them.
“You may be a hard-working young man with big dreams in your heart that you want to achieve during your lifetime. However, then sometimes life throws certain situations and problems that will hit you so hard. Then you fall to a level where you can’t lift yourself up. But when you cry for a hand that will lift you up, it only takes compassionate and loving people like you to help.
“Yes, it’s true. It is me who cried for help. I’m so glad that though you don’t even know us, you chose to show love and stretch your hand forth at a time that I was going to be homeless with a 1-year nine months baby.
“Sometimes, establishing something that enables you to provide yourself a living, especially here in Zimbabwe, Africa, is not easy for economic and political reasons. Even more so, with two previous lockdowns, some of us cannot afford the costs yet. This is why we need help.
“But the most important thing here is to thank you so much for what you did for us. Your help gave us more time under a roof and more days with food in our bellies. So, on behalf of my family, we just want to say thank you so much. You gave us tears of joy. We will forever be grateful in our hearts to you. Thank you for being used by God to keep and save us.”
Please consider helping us reach our goal. I ask that you prayerfully consider sowing a financial seed to ensure one household’s stability and assist in helping them re-establish themselves over the last six months. These contributions will go far towards helping these families to regain their financial independence. If you cannot give, you can still contribute with your prayers.
I so look forward to hearing from you. Please click here to donate, and please remember to share. I’ll keep you updated at least once per week on the campaign’s progress, as I initially promised.
Again, many thanks for your support.
Love & Blessings,

They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’ He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me. (Matthew 25:44-45 NIV)
