Sponsor a Widow




The Bible says “True religion is to help widows and orphans in distress”. In the Samburu county of Kenya there are some desperately needy women who are elderly and with no one to care for them. God cares for them and wants us to as well. Because of the largely animistic population, they are impoverished spiritually too. Please choose one to show Christ’s love to. Sponsoring her will fund her being discipled, and see physical needs met.  

How does sponsorship help?
Once a fortnight one of our women's workers will deliver a fortnight’s worth of food to the widow’s home. Your sponsorship will fund her time to visit for an hour to disciple her and to have her needs attended to. When she needs to go to the local clinic, the sponsorship will also pay for her medical bills.

What is discipleship?
Jesus commanded us in the Great Commission to make disciples, and that’s why we have the personal, one person to one person approach to sponsorship for both children and elderly people. Although discipleship is costly, it’s what we are called to do personally, and our program fulfils that. Through this program we disciple through fortnightly one person to one person meetings where we talk, listen, read the Bible together, give guidance, and pray. To listen, that's love. To learn of all their troubles and challenges, then to share the saving message from the Scriptures and to pray with them in all their needs bears much fruit.

How much does it cost?
It costs just $20 a week to sponsor a widow.

Donations $2 and over are tax deductible in Australia to the extent permitted by law.

What will I get in return?
The joy of touching a life with God's word and God's love! You will receive communication from the field every six months, alternating between progress reports and letters from the widow. You are welcome to write back if you wish.
