The Mercy Homes Transformation Center is now open! Praise God!
Samson, Lucas, Dorcas, Lilian & Linda – It’s 1st Group
These five street kids of Kitale, Kenya, are just a representation of over 100 million kids worldwide between the ages of 2-18, that are orphans. These two boys and three girls have been abandoned and left to provide for themselves. Scarred emotionally and physically by the streets, many of these children have turned to glue for comfort; see more at GlueBoys.com. The Mercy Homes Transformation Center was founded on love, compassion and God our Father’s command to look after the orphans in their distress. These five children will be provided with food and clean water, medical care, and guidance under a spiritual family, through a direct sponsorship of Mercy Homes.
These little lives have been unchained from their past and will begin the transformation that only Jesus can provide. After approximately three months, they will be transferred to an identified Mercy Home Family (MercyHomes.org) that will offer the proper care, good food, education, shelter and spiritual upbringing. These are not orphanages, but homes where children grow in love, peace and responsibility.
Pastor Ken, his wife Abigail and their children invited their new brothers and sisters with open arms and love. Pastor Ken wrote, “They are in the home and very happy. We are so grateful that the youngest boys and girls on the street, came with us. Their immediate needs are being addressed. When we found Samson on the street that night he was very sick and shivering. It was raining and he was in the cold. We took him to our house and the next day took him to the doctor. He was suffering of malaria and typhoid. He is now doing okay. The kids are being treated for their skin diseases and need to be treated of ring worms and other complications, such as jiggers and de-worming.”
With the support of the Mercy Homes Ministry, we hope to help people understand that street kids should be seen the same way we view our own children. They are simply children who have no parents, no support system or societal structure to help them. Many people have no idea the problem of street kids even exists. We believe that when someone becomes aware of the plight of street children and starts to understand this problem, they will feel a need to help.
JOIN US..LOVE MERCY. MERCY IS ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL TERMS WE FIND THROUGH OUT ALL OF SCRIPTURE. OPEN YOUR MIND, BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY, OPEN YOUR HEART TO SEE THEIR LIVES FROM GOD’S PERSPECTIVE.
