God’s Economics

Recently, I was preaching in Kenya where they are having an immense drought and food crisis. The ongoing drought in the Horn of Africa is part of what may be the greatest famine of our lifetime. After our church gathering, we decided that we would feed everyone. Since we announced it, there was obviously a huge crowd. The service lasted a little over four hours—so everyone was more than ready for the food. Since I was the preacher (and I had paid for the food), everyone insisted that I was first in line. I tried to position myself at the end, but they would have it no other way. There was so much food. People were ecstatic because so many… Read more »

The Worst Famine Since WWII

I certainly paid attention to the news. It was six years ago, and I was being told that the worst famine in 60 years was occurring in East Africa. Over and over again, I was being informed about the people starving to death. It changed everything in my life. CRF started sending food, buying goats, and developed a brand new water ministry. Hundreds of wells were drilled. Thousands of goats were given. Truckload after truckload of food was distributed. And you gave to make it all possible. Your help saved the lives of the dying in the Horn of Africa! And now the famine is back. In some places it never left. But I can’t seem to locate this story… Read more »

CRF Sundays

Have you had a CRF Sunday at your congregation? Let us know if you would like Milton to speak at your gathering!

Mother of Naomi

Emily Whelchel is our Kenya Programs Director. Here is her story of seeing her CRF sponsored child, Naomi. — When I saw my sponsored daughter, my world stopped. Naomi has been in my life for a year and a half now. I get her letters twice a year, a new photo of her to hang on my wall with my other family photos, and I even get a report card so I can see how she’s doing in school. I chose to sponsor Naomi because I knew there was a reason God was putting her into my life. I knew I could support her through school. “Welcome Emily, mother of Naomi,” the children at the CRF school sang. Everything was… Read more »

We Have Come from Far

“We Have Come From Far. We Are Far. We Are Going Far.” If you hear it once, you hear it a thousand times. It’s the slogan of Oasis of Hope. They are going far. They have hope. Oasis of Hope is a high school that is managed by Haggai Kadiri. Haggai loves children. He is also an attorney specializing in the rights of abused and abandoned children. CRF is a partial owner of Oasis of Hope. We bought part of the school in order for our children at the Ring Road Orphans’ School in Kisumu to have a place to go to high school. Our children there are guaranteed an entry to Oasis of Hope and are also charged the… Read more »
