Caring for our children, with a new look!

In a celebration filled with prayer, laughter, new shirts and cake, we were blessed to come together (virtually) with our entire Christ’s Hope team to praise the Lord for all he has done, and look forward to what he will do through this ministry! We had nearly all of our staff members, as well as a few board members, join our call from 14 different countries! We got to celebrate together and hear more about the branding, vision, and mission change for Christ’s Hope International.

While our logo is not completely different, as we still have our signature yellow flower, the handwriting font is meant to represent the ministry’s personality. Our values are translated into our visual identity which reflect the love of Jesus, sincerity, competence and excitement. The style and colors are meant to show the joy and nature that is experienced in Africa and the Light of Christ. The little yellow flower in our logo reminds us of our hope in Christ and the new life He freely gave to us after His death on the cross, and we rejoice whenever we see it! We pray when you see our logo, Christ’s Hope is not only read, but felt! We are thankful for Annet van de Berg of Montio, a volunteer at Christ’s Hope Netherlands, who graciously agreed to design this new branding style for us.

Just as our branding is new and improved, so are our vision and mission statements! After much prayer and evaluation, our new vision statement is “Transforming the lives of orphaned and vulnerable children in extreme poverty.” Our new mission statement is ”Empowering orphaned and vulnerable children to break the cycles of extreme poverty, AIDS, and spiritual brokenness through family-based care and discipleship in Jesus Christ.” We want to see a dramatic change in the lives of children living off of less than $1.90 per day with lack of access to education, health care, food stability, and clean water. We will do this by giving them the tools they need to go from “orphaned” or “vulnerable” to valued, chosen, loved, and redeemed in Christ Jesus!

We will continue to care for the orphaned and vulnerable with the same heart and passion as before, but with a new look!

July Update

A quick update on Christ’s Hope International this month and a huge thank you for you prayers and support!

Saburi’s Story

Last month I introduced you to Saburi Boyer, this month I would like to tell you a little bit more about the steps that led to his involvement with Christ’s Hope.

Saburi became a Christian during the hottest summer on record in La Grange, Wyoming at the Frontier School of the Bible. God saved him from a life of rebellion and anger, and into a joyful relationship with Him, and this was just the tipping point.

As an adult, Saburi became a workaholic. He missed countless family birthdays and spending time with friends. On a rare vacation day in sunny Florida, Saburi dove into shallow water, hitting his head on the ocean floor below; he was unconscious, his lungs filled with water, and he broke his neck, but by God’s grace he survived. The hard times were only beginning for Saburi, though. Soon after he lost his grandfather, along with a close friend, his wife decided to divorce him, his sister fell deathly ill, and he had a personal battle with leukemia.

All of these difficulties forced Saburi to reevaluate his life and slow down. “It all dawned on me in that moment. I wanted to live for God and live for others. I wanted my life to count.”  

After Saburi’s near-death experience from leukemia, his interest in going to Africa was kindled. Since going to Uganda, Kenya, and Tanzania in 2017, he has never looked back. “The model works, it is Christ-centered and family-centric. And, don’t we all need a family?” 

You are Making a Difference 

The children in this picture have been a part of the Manyatta and Nyalenda Ministry CarePoints in Kenya since they were in kindergarten. Today they are all in junior high, following the Lord, growing physically, and academically. Your partnership is helping these children break the cycle, and giving them a future rooted in hope.

Art for Hope
We are excited to announce some more details about our Art for Hope event on September 29th in Sacramento, California, and available on the web! We have two exquisite Carrara marble statues from Michelangelo’s Pieta, as well as a Boogaali Bamboo Bike exactly like the ones we used for the Ride For Hope Lake Victoria to auction off. If you are interested in learning more about the event and getting tickets, please go to CHIArtForHope.org to learn more

Prayer Requests

Please continue to pray for E. in Kenya. She is blind, because of a tumor between her eyes. The doctors tried chemotherapy, but that didn’t work, so now they are trying radiation treatments.

Please pray for all the teams that are either in Africa right now or are about to leave in the next several days. 

Please pray for the Climb for Hope event that is about to happen.

Please pray for our child sponsorship launch at Bible Baptist on August 12th. ore

“Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God.” –Romans 5:2

COVID-19 Update

As we face the Coronavirus pandemic let us, as His people, turn to Him and seek Him. It is a time to share His promises with those we serve and those we encounter.

Our friends at Young Life are praying through Psalm 91 for 91 days. We encourage you to join with our brothers and sisters and likewise commit to praying through Psalm 91 for the next 91 days. Let us lift our voices to our “refuge and fortress” and trust in Him.

The Coronavirus issue has escalated to a global pandemic and some countries we serve in are facing full shut down of operations. We are being proactive in minimizing the risk of spread and exposure to the virus as well as taking steps to prepare for quarantine and the impact this will have on the children in our care, their families, and our staff. It’s important to remember that many of the children and families we serve already have compromised immune systems and this virus could be very dangerous to them. 

Therefore, we are instituting the following steps to protect our staff and those we serve:

  1. CarePoints will be shut down if –
    • Government closes down schools
    • Any staff or children are diagnosed with the COVID-19 virus
    • Government authorities require shut down
  2. Preparations are being made for emergency provisions for our children and their families, as well as for staff in the event we have to close the CarePoints
  3. Reinforcing instructions and training for our children, their families, and our staff on the importance of frequent hand washing with soap and water as well as not touching your face with dirty hands
  4. Joining the prayer movement for protection, healing and against the spread of  the COVID-19 virus
We pray the Lord’s protection over our staff, children, and their families. Lord use this situation to draw many people to yourself!
lessings,

Dave Kase
