Swaziland Food Update


"Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see."  Hebrews 11:1. This picture reminds me of this verse. This is one of those moments where our faith becomes visible in the form of a hungry child eating an nutritious meal. But we didn't have this photo when we started the February Food drive back in early 2009.

All we had was faith.

Back in February, you contributed over $13,000 to provide food for our kids in Swaziland. I just recieved this report from our partner, Kids Against Hunger about that shipment:


Our shipment of (3) 40' containers arrived in Durban, South Africa after a month at sea. Over 840,000 Kids Against Hunger meals were then transported by train to Matsapha, Swaziland. Our mission partners feed 2700 children a day at 30 care points throughout the country.

Thank you again for your generosity and faith. Kids Against Hunger is considering another shipment of food toward the end of the year. You can support this by donating online at the link below. Please note "Swaziland Food" in the notes.

We are also drilling wells, developing carepoints, and advancing discipleship. We now have nearly 1,000 children with committed sponsors. Thank you for being part of an amazing journey with Children's HopeChest. I hope to bring you more and more photos of how your faith turns into God's love for the orphan.


Help feed our kids in Swaziland.

I’ve just finished reading Red Letters and Scared and I am a changed Christian. Ignorance is bliss, but knowledge means action. I’m so burdened about this issue that we have decided to donate part of our tithe every month to this organization and I’m ready to go around and drum up more church support for this cause. Thanks you for writing the books. I’m forever grateful for them. Hopefully, I will make a difference in the pandemic. What a ministry!
