Food for the Hungry by Jim Rowh
Dear beloved: Pictures above: the maize harvest on the Living Water Orphanage Land in Kenya. Left are the church members harvesting corn and gathering up the stalks; right, you can see the many brown and moldy ears of corn from all the El Nino rains. The harvest this year was less than 50% of normal, so it is going to be a year of lack for many of the children and their families in West Kenya. These families depend on maize for much of their food supply for themselves and the livestock. They eat ugali, a boiled corn meal dish similar to our corn meal mush, twice a day with greens and beans or meat if they have it. They also feed their chickens cracked maize, so it is a staple of all the rural people. Because of the poor harvest, many of the farmers in the Mumias area do not have the money for seed and fertilizer to plant the spring crop, so that will affect the summer food supply as well.
Would you consider supporting a child for $30 per month so they will not be hungry when they go to bed? Please pray about it and see what the Lord would have you to do. We can arrange for monthly deposit to Gather the Outcasts, or you can Paypal or send checks. I would like to see the support level take care of at least fifty children. Beloved, in America we don't know about hunger and lack. For the cost of a couple of pizzas you can feed one child for a month.
Thank you so much for your prayers and support. May God bless you as you pray. In Christ, Jim Gather the Outcasts, Inc., Box 92, Norton, Ks. 67654 501(c)3 Paypal at www.gathertheoutcasts.com or www.jimrowh.blogspot.com email: email@example.com
