Our Kids are Moving with Us

Our Mabanteneni kids, that is, will be showing up on Patheos from time to time.

Kris and I are committed to helping orphans in Swaziland at a place called Mabanteneni.  The needs, as you may know, are desperate but one thing we can do is offer help fund ministries like those of Hope Chest that work with orphans physically, economically, spiritually and educationally.

So, once again, I hope you will ponder and pray over sponsoring a child at only 34 dollars per month. Kris and I are committed to use this blog space to urge readers to consider sponsoring a child in Swaziland, a land in desperate need of services like Hope Chest.  As of the writing of this post, we are so proud that 20 children have been “adopted” and there are 5 more in need of adoption (but Tom Davis at Hope Chest will find more if we can sponsor them).  Please think if this is a ministry of which you would like to be a part.

Yes, there are needs everywhere, including here in the USA.  And we can spread our funds only so thin, but perhaps you are moved to help Africa and if so we’d like you to consider Mabanteneni’s community of orphans and pastors and Go-Gos who care for the local kids.

  • Scot/Kris: Thanks for your continual commitment to this…

    I’m grateful for this, too, and look forward to more posts. Could I gently suggest not using “adopt” as synonymous with “sponsor?” For those of us with internationally adopted children, we, and our children, know there is a HUGE difference between sponsoring a child and adopting one. Just a thought.
