Kapu Africa (Midwest Food Bank East Africa) was encouraged recently when a "thank you" letter arrived from an organization that rescues and rehabilitates children, youth and families living on the streets in Nairobi, Kenya.
"As we distribute the food we have been evangelizing to the street families whenever we get the opportunity, and a number have prayed with us the sinner's prayer of repentance. Pray with us for the sustenance in salvation," says Joseph Mwanga, co-founder and team leader for Love In Deed.
Kapu Africa donated Tender Mercies meals to the organization and those meals were used in Saturday feeding programs. Some Tender Mercies meals were donated in larger bags which make preparation easier for organizations as they are reaching out to and feeding large groups of people at one time. Between mid-April and the end of June, over 1,600 individuals received a meal and heard about the love of Jesus Christ. Currently, Love In Deed is evaluating 10 young people for enrollment into their program which has the vision of re-integrating people into society as leaders in their churches, work places and communities.
Joseph closed his note by saying, "May the words of Luke 6:38 be true for you, as you have given, may it be given to you, "good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over shall be poured into your lap."
Kapu Africa is blessed to have partners like Love In Deed sharing the good news of Jesus as they feed the hungry. Below are some photos of distributions:
