Kids will have to scooch a little closer ...

Exciting news today! ... Kind Hearts CarePoint is enrolling FIFTY more children despite the fact that our 4 tiny classrooms are already overflowing with kids!  Every day, there are hundreds of kids standing on the outside looking in, watching, waiting and wishing they too could attend Kind Hearts.



Presently, the CarePoint serves 150 orphaned and destitute children providing nutritious food, clean water, medical care, clothing, Christian discipleship and education for children who would otherwise go without.

In faith, the CarePoint is going ahead with more enrollment - even though they lack the physical building, classrooms and space to help more kids.  There are just too many desperately poor and malnourished children. 

Somehow ... space will be made, kids will scooch a little closer in the too-crowded classrooms, and food will be shared.

Our school building fund is 45% funded, but rather than wait, Kind Hearts is stepping out in faith that the new school building will soon be fully funded.

Those 50 kids will need a sponsor family too!  If you are interested in sponsoring a child at Kind Hearts, please email me and I will add you to our waiting list.  As soon as the kids are enrolled, I will contact you to match you with a child.

Our team of volunteers will be in Ethiopia to work with the kids in November.  If you are interested in sponsorship, please email me at kjwistrom@yahoo.com.  Sponsorship is $34 per month and provides nutritious meals, clean water, clothing, medical care, Christian discipleship and education for one child.

If you can help fund our school building (which will accomodate another 150 kids!!), you can make a secure, tax-deductible donation here  http://donate.hopechest.org/goto/karen

Below - these are just a few photos of kids around the CarePoint who are standing on the outside looking in when school starts each day and meals are served ...
