Since our initial venture into Kenya in 2017, Hopeful Hearts has embarked on a transformative mission, aiming not only to provide support but also to share the transformative message of Jesus Christ with children in need. What began as exploratory meetings evolved into profound relationships with our partners dedicated to nurturing and uplifting vulnerable children in Kenya, with our primary mission centered on sharing the love of Jesus.
Currently, Hopeful Hearts stands alongside two remarkable ministry partners in Kenya: the Good Samaritan Children’s Home, led by Peter Oringo, and the Shepherd’s Children Home, directed by Symphrose Odongo. These partnerships serve as conduits of love and support for children in dire need.
At the heart of our mission lies the Good Samaritan Children’s Home, where 76 children, from infancy to 18 years old, find refuge and care. Hopeful Hearts’ direct support aids in securing food and covering educational necessities, ensuring these children have the means to grow and thrive. Our regular visits to the home aren’t just about material support; they also encompass conducting uplifting programs such as Vacation Bible School, imparting crucial life skills, and nurturing spiritual growth among the older children, all rooted in the teachings of Jesus.
Similarly, at the Shepherd’s Children Home overseen by Symphrose Odongo, Hopeful Hearts’ monetary assistance enables education and basic living essentials for seven at-risk children. Through this support, these children are granted the opportunity for education and a hopeful future, illuminated by the love of Christ.
In our ongoing mission in Kenya, we understand the significance of sharing the message of Jesus Christ. It’s our fundamental belief that beyond providing material aid, introducing these children to the love and teachings of Jesus brings a transformative hope that transcends circumstances.
In alignment with our commitment to sharing Christ’s love, we fervently pray for political peace and stability within Kenya. We recognize that a peaceful environment is crucial for these children to flourish and grow, both spiritually and materially.
At Hopeful Hearts, our primary mission remains steadfast—to bring hope, love, and the message of Jesus Christ to children in need. Together, let’s celebrate the impactful work in Kenya and continue to lift prayers for peace and the spread of God’s love among these precious children.
