LTRP Note: Lighthouse Trails and Understand the Times have been working together in the Bryce Homes for Widows and Children in Kenya program for two and a half years now. If you would like to donate to this mission project, you can do so at the Understand the Times website. You can also visit the Missions for Truth website (a Lighthouse Trails site) to watch slideshows and read more about the project. Thank you to those who have supported these Christian families thus far.
The program has brought a big difference in my life, making others wonder of the great works of God. – Widow Emily from Kenya
I greet you all in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. I thank the Almighty God for you people because through you He brings hope to the hopeless. Be blessed abundantly.
I am a widow in Kenya and far away from America and the entire world. You take heart in the interest of my family – be blessed. I thank God for all these because all is happening through His grace.
My husband died in 2009, which left me with 6 children. It is true that I didn’t expect this to happen, but from April 2013, we started getting food donations: maize, beans, rice, sugar, cooking fat and bar soaps e.tc. This has gone well with my family for both April and May. In May, on top of food donations, my family got blessed with clothes, both of which have really improved the health of my family. True to sound, it is a sign of relief. It is actually proved to us that God created man in His own image, and it is through His image that He reaches and touches the lives of others at the time of need.
As families grow strong and healthy, keep warm in clothes, may they take the most important task of embracing the gospel in the biblical way and testify proudly in the name of our Lord. I pray for long life, good health , wider donation network, everlasting stability and true revelation of your effort in the gospel outreach so that you may continue with your vision for the hopeless in many parts of the world.

The women are receiving a fair market wage for their labor. It has made a tremendous difference in their lives.
