I would like to share a message with you from Marlaine and the children in Haiti. “…” I want so much to thank you for the school backpacks, they were a great blessing for me to help putting the kids to school. We pray and we believe that God has His perfect plan and He is with you as you put the team together. He will open doors. We always in need for clothes and shoes for boys and girls + babies. We emphasize the possibility to help some more small kids in 2010. The task is not easy as you know, but we are happy to fulfill our mission. Food is very important for us now, it will be very appreciated if you could help in this area. Don’t want to keep you busy nor to spend what you could help to buy food, but toothpaste, soap, shampoo, body lotion, children underwear. As for medicines, multivitamin for children and adults, tylenol, cough and cold, peptobismol, antidiarhea, special shampoo for dried and infectious scalp….”
Friends of Haiti
The Kenya Initiative: From Street to School In a charitable organization whose primary purpose is to provide educational support (primary school, secondary school, or college/university) for disadvantaged young people in Kenya. The Initiative extends occasional support to widows caring for grandchildren whose parents have died or left them. Occasional educational support is given for the grandchildren as well. Finally, the Initiative has enabled boys living on the streets to be placed in a home where they are cared for and given the opportunity to attend school. We are now focusing primarily on educational support. For more information visit their website.
Storehouse of Hope
Storehouse of Hope is a Christian outreach mission to those in need in our community. The heart of Storehouse is to serve with the love of Christ, to come alongside and, in whatever way possible, to assist whether needs are spiritual, emotional or physical. Storehouse provides free clothing. a meal at noon on Mondays, a safe place to come that is welcoming and nurturing... a place where relationships are nurtured and personal growth encouraged. Soon an additional bible study will be established with a focus on God’s Grace and Mercy led by members of Kingston Christian Fellowship. Storehouse is an example of ministries and volunteers from all walks of life and churches working together to bless the lives of others. 1) Kingston Christian Fellowship provides an abundance of volunteers who faithfully serve each week, some who lead will be leading a bible group, the congregation generously donates clothing and much-needed items that help those in need stay warm. 2) Kingston Gospel Temple has a program established with Costco and Cobbs Bakery where we pick up, deliver and provide access to other churches, the produce and bread, thus feeding many who would otherwise go hungry. 3) Thru networking other ministries share food and resources. 4) Kingston Alliance Church (Bath and Palace Road) provides the use of their church and assists in many ways. Storehouse is an example of many churches working together, with the common goal of serving God and meeting the needs of those marginalized and in need.
