Artist's Description

I recently returned from Mission work in Kenya. I spend some time working with Shiloh Children s Life centers and Stand by me Charities. Part of my work was to validate the work, check accountability, receipts and look at setting up income generating projects to help children in need, their families and those in the slums. I really did need Gods Grace and strength.

This is john and Ruth. Pictured outside their home in kyang’ombe slum outside Nairobi. They are extremely poor, with no worldly possessions, except what you see in this photo. Their home is made of wood, plastic sheets and its not fit for a dog to sleep in. it rained the night before and when I crawled into the home, it was wet. they were soaked through. They struggle to get food. they try and grow things to eat, but both are weak in body.

there are thousands here and in three other slums. there are no toilets and human waste is everywhere. open sewers are awful. Sickness and disease is rampant and 87% of children never go to school,a s the parents cannot afford the school fees or uniforms. The official death rate here is 164 children in 1000 die before 7 years old. 113 woman of every 1000mdie during and shortly after childbirth.

It is here I and Philadelphia Mission are now working to help Shiloh Children s life centers and Stand by me, to raise much needed funds to help the many like john and Ruth. Their Love for God and each other inspired and touched my life.

Please Pray for john and Ruth. Pray for the many children in great need. Pray for us also that we can raise money to help these suffering people.
