This story comes from our FH colleagues in Kenya.

It's 5 a.m. one chilly morning in Mariwa village, and Florence is up and ready for the day ahead. She quickly sips her tea to help her energize. As the lady of the house, Florence knows an early start will give her an edge over most other women going down to the stream to fetch water. This morning, like most mornings, Florence, armed with her...

From Hopeless to Blessed: Partnerships Save and Transform Lives

By

Wilfred lived at the top of a steep hill in the Haitian village of Lespinasse. His shack was made of sticks and mud and smelled of disease and neglect. Diabetes had rendered Wilfred blind, sick, helpless and difficult to look at.

“My spirit was deeply troubled when I first met Wilfred,” remembers Heidi Hatch, Field Liaison with Food for the Hungry (FH) in Phoenix, Ariz. “It bothered me that he was so needy and alone. Just a mile away was a church named Bon Samaritan, which means The Samaritan in English.”

Bon Samaritan is part of a Church-to-Church partnership with The Grove church in Chandler, Ariz. The Grove is helping FH enable Bon Samaritan to reach out to people in their own community. A second partnership in Lespinasse is with Mission of Hope, which is build a school through FH’s Child Sponsorship program. Heidi asked Bon Samaritan to help Wilfred, and they began bringing him food, giving him medicine (when they could afford it) and picking him up for church every Sunday.

Heidi was anxious to hike up the hill to Wilfred’s shack when she returned to Lespinasse a few months later. Her spirit leaped for joy when she saw that his mud-and-sticks shack had been replaced with a small brick house that sported a shiny tin roof and cement floor.

“I asked Wilfred how he liked going to church,” smiled Heidi. “His face lit up. He said, ‘I like it very much.’ Then he asked me to get him a Creole Bible, which I did.”

Wilfred’s condition is still critical. But, thanks to faithful FH donors and partners, his extreme poverty no longer makes him alone and hopeless.

“That’s the way partnerships are supposed to work,” said Heidi. “We can’t physically save him. But we can work with our partners to make him more comfortable and give him hope for eternity.”
