Are you having a hard time finding the perfect gift for people on your list who seem to have everything?
Bless them by giving to those in need! Our children in Kenya, many of whom are orphans, need food and clothing–the basic necessities of life. You can make a donation through this website, or contact us at TheHopeFactory@centex.net. We will provide you with a “Gift Card,” including a picture of one of our kids to place under the tree for your loved one. What a wonderful way to teach your children or your grandchildren that it is, indeed, more blessed to give than to receive!
John Okwadho, our young pastor at Tumaini Chapel, the new church we planted in Western Kenya in September, organized a week-long crusade there in late November. Many people came to Christ, and we have around 100 awaiting baptism! Right now, he is winding up another crusade in Tanzania, returning to Kenya tomorrow. God is moving in mighty ways! Thank you for continuing to support The Hope Factory as we spread the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Mungu akubariki sana! (God bless you, BIG!)
Today we say goodbye to a wonderful friend of The Hope Factory. Mary Ann Perry loved children, and was quick to get on board with support for our school in Kenya, as we work toward creating a self-sustaining orphan community.
She didn’t just support children like our precious little ones in Africa; she lived her passion. After she and Wayland had three children of their own, they took in a family of six young siblings, becoming foster parents, and later adoptive parents, loving these kids like their own.
Mary Ann lived to see the establishment in Western Kenya of our school, Kiwanda Cha Tumaini Christian Academy; the founding of Tumaini Chapel; the rescue of numerous orphans; the start of a clinic; the plans laid for the opening this summer of a Bible college, The Hope of Africa School of Theology; and, most recently, a crusade in Western Kenya, bringing over 100 Kenyans to the Lord.
Today, Mary Ann is receiving her crowns in heaven.
R.I.P., Servant of God!
