The Deacon’s Fund Provides Emergency Relief

February 2, 2017

The Share International leadership team went to 2 villages; Nakwaperit and Lokitila, where families were reportedly starving and there are many orphans.  The team was able to help 36 households with an average of 7 people in each family.  Share’s primary goal is to spread the Gospel, but as the Bible says in James 2:15-16, If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacks daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, keep warm and eat well,” but you do not give them what the body needs, what good is it?  So also faith, if it does not have works, it is dead being by itself.”

Providing food in famine and drought stricken areas of Turkanaland is part of bringing God’s word to the people.

This woman praises God that he has not forgotten her “in such a situation in life” and asks the Lord to go ahead of the people who came to rescue her.  She said, “Whoever did this, may the living God sustain and bless him abundantly”.

The orphans of the village were also given food and water.
