Five-year old Njogu is a Kenyan orphan. Both his parents died from AIDS, and he is HIV positive, having contracted the virus through breastfeeding. He is among the most vulnerable of the vulnerable.
Njogu’s mother succumbed to kidney failure at the Imani Shade Ministry/Christlike Academy, and the Kenyans that run the Texas Baptist Hunger Offering-supported ministry pledged to care for him.
Through the effort, Kenyans provide the young boy a place to stay, medicine, education and – thanks in part to the hunger offering – meals to eat. The workers serve as Njogu’s family, raising him, nurturing him, reading Scripture to Him and sharing the gospel with him.
In January 2012, Njogu was baptized as a public profession of his faith in Christ.
As ministries carry out the Great Commandment and Great Commission with the help of the Texas Baptist Hunger Offering, lives are transformed by the love of Christ. Will you help them expand God’s kingdom by giving through the offering?
This Mother’s Day, Texas Baptist leaders are encouraging churches to take a special offering for the Texas Baptist Hunger Offering. Together, congregations are seeking to raise $1 million to minister and end hunger in Christ’s name.
Will you be part of this extraordinary effort? Will you be an advocate for the offering in your church?
