I am, and always have been so thankful to Faith and Peter for making the choice to serve those in their communities, especially the choice to serve the children.  The statistics about orphans in Africa are so overwhelming that I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to truly absorb what was going on when I went to see Faith and Peter in action for the first time.  I thought I would leave full of despair.  But when I arrived in Uganda and Kenya and saw the absolute love and care provided to these children, I did not feel overwhelmed.  I felt hopeful and I felt thankful.

Personally, I could not even begin to the make the difference in these children’s lives like Faith and Peter have. And it is not just them, it is the house mothers at Home Again and it is the staff at Action Ministry.  Know Think Act has made a way for us to do what we are able, and for the staff and the community to do what they are able.  We can supply them with resources to meet the physical needs of these children and they can provide love, support, and care, which they are doing so well.  Together we are all giving these children a sense of family, of hope, and of possibility.

So this week, enjoy spending time with your families, reflecting on the many blessings that we have in our lives, and remember those around the world who do not have the same.  I want to invite you to look at the needs on KTA and however you are able, participate in making a child’s life better.  Click here to see how you can help. Thank you!
