Heart For Africa

I have always had a special place in my heart for Africa. I believe God plans for me to visit and more importantly pray. I could go on a whole diatrabe on my opinions of Africa and the problems, solutions, etc. . . .
But it all comes down to Jesus. He is the only one who can heal Africa. It is only through Him that true change will occur in Africa. And it is happening.
Phil and Lori Hunt are missionaries in Zambia. They are helping out with Faith Children's Village Orphange and Central Africa Baptist College.

My children and I decided to be a sponsor of one of the children at the Orphange. They will be using a portion of their allowance, supplemented by me to make the $25 a month committment. I am happy to find out about this program. Often I have been tempted to give to other African charities, but you know, I'm always unsure of how the money is used, etc. I know with this donation, that our money is being spent well. Hopefully, one day, we can go visit the child we sponsor!

We sponser a girl in another part of Africa. She sends us letters quite often with pictures of what she gets with the money we send and we are helping her go to school. It is a precious thing we can do!!

You will be Blessed, I know!!
