and are hoping you may join us to serve and
"Love the Least of These"
The Call: I am sure that for some, the words of Matthew 25:35-40 comes to mind: "For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me..."The Kind will reply, "Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me."
beds and which I have shared about in earlier blog posts (see links on this and other ‘Elder’ stories below.) Within a few weeks, God provided enough funds to actually purchase new beds and mattresses for every family in that compound!
THE NEED: As mentioned already, the setup costs are covered, but we are still praying for those who would like to partner with us through a MONTHLY SPONSORSHIP to cover the DAILY COSTS of serving these Elders. We calculate the overall cost for food, housing, clothing, routine healthcare and daily provision for seven of these men will be around $400/month. We are one quarter of the way there. There is no specified sponsorship amount, but we are hoping people will pray and respond as God leads them. We envision a group of people from various places, who will not only 'love the least of these' through monthly giving, but through prayer, letters and photographs, building relationships with them. We are excited to bring God's love and dignity to these who have suffered much. We want them to know how very much God loves them; they are important and they are not forgotten!
THE NEW REALITY!: Below are some photos that have just arrived from Korah. Once again, God has provided above and beyond what we could imagine or think. Recently HFK has begun renting a compound near the GHC Children's Shelter and it has an existing home for the elders that is much more than we ever expected - in contrast to most Korah homes, it has REAL floors, proper walls, wooden doors and a bathroom! And just this week, five of the elders have been moved out of the old compound and into this new home!! I was not there in person to witness this awesome event - but as is often said; "A picture paints a thousand words" and that you will see their faces below!!
THE WAY YOU CAN GET INVOLVED: If you or your small group or church, would like more information on partnering with us through a monthly sponsorship to support "Loving the Least of These" - The Elderly Lepers' Home please contact me (Eve Pohl) directly at firstname.lastname@example.org It might also interest you to know that HFK is under a registered charity 'International Discipleship Training' in both the US & Canada, so all giving is tax receipt-able.
