Israel

King of Glory Ministries International works each month to help widows and orphans each and every day in the nation of Israel by supporting the work of Vision for Israel. Vision for Israel is a non-profit organization created by Barry and Batya Segal in 1994 out of the desire to help build and restore the Land. VFI freely provides aid to the poor and needy people, both Jewish and Arab, living in the nation of Israel today through The Joseph Storehouse, an international humanitarian aid center operating in the Judean Hills just outside of Jerusalem.

 

Since 1994, Vision for Israel has been reaching out to Israelis of all backgrounds who are struggling with poverty. This assistance has become more critical than ever before as a wave of poverty is hurting the promise of the Promised Land for many.

 

According to the 2011 Israel National Insurance Institute Poverty Report, almost 1.8 million Israelis live below the poverty line – a full 24% of the population. 36% of Israeli households report being unable to meet basic needs for food and electricity. More than a third of all Israelis reported that they are very hungry.

 

Children suffer from poverty in an even higher percentage. Poverty among Israeli families with children has shot up from 25% in the year 2000 to 35% in 2011. One in four Israeli children lives below the poverty line. Among Israeli children, a staggering 7% regularly searched for food left on the street or in trash cans.

 

But those in need are not alone. Thanks to the generosity of Vision for Israel supporters, we supply essential emergency relief to poor and needy Jewish and Arab people living throughout the nation of Israel.

 

Through The Joseph Storehouse, the relief wing of Vision for Israel, we are able to distribute on a weekly basis essential supplies such as money vouchers, clothing, toiletries, kitchen and household items, appliances, blankets, towels, linens, diapers, infant and toddler necessities, and toys for children. We take very seriously the high calling to help the poor, and work directly with social workers, government agencies, and congregational leaders to ensure each situation is one of genuine need, and to assess how wecan best help.

Living Waters Ministries in Mwanza

 

We have been working with working with Living Waters Ministries in Mwanza since 2009. Living Waters Ministries was founded by Carolyn Philpott, who is the International Director of the project. She was born in California, then went to UK in 1979 as a missionary. It was there when Living Waters Ministries was established as a UK charity.

 

In 1993 when Carolyn first set foot in Mwanza, Tanzania, a desire birthed within her spirit to return and minister to the Tanzanian people. It seemed there were so many needs existing that could possibly be relieved. Consequently she traveled to East Africa every year taking teams of people that had become interested when Carolyn expressed her passion for Tanzania and the Tanzanian people.

 

Living Waters Ministries is a Christian mission with a seven-fold Vision that began in Mwanza, Tanzania, in 1998 when the Tanzania government allocated a beautiful large plot of land on top of a hill overlooking Lake Victoria for this project. After working very hard to establish a prosperous and successful Christian school on the property, Living Waters has now begun to move forward with their vision to help and rescue the neediest children in the area.

 

Living Waters and several partners of King of Glory Ministries International have worked to refurbish and furnish two small homes on the property—the Hylands Girls Home and the Osteen Boys Home. On Saturday, October 9, 2010, fourteen children moved into the new homes. The Osteen Home currently houses five formerly at risk or homeless boys, and the Hyland Home now houses seven formerly at risk or homeless girls. All of these children are attending Living Waters Christian School and are being trained and brought up in the admonition of the Lord.

 

Since that time King of Glory Ministries International has also financed the construction of additional homes on the property of Living Waters Ministries International. These include the new Lori Danforth-Stephen Richardson Boys Home of Hope and the Walczuk Girls Home of Hope. These two homes currently help sixteen of the most at risk children in the Lakes District, two of which have very disabled parents. We have worked with the government, as each of the children has been vetted by the Tanzanian Department of Social Services to assure they are at risk. We minister the love of God to them each day.

 

In addition to these orphanages we also work with local widows to help support an additional seventeen children outside the grounds of Living Waters Ministries International through the ministry of Doris Samuel. Doris works closely with Carolyn Philpott and the leaders of Living
Waters to minister to these needy at risk children every day.

 

Our desire is to continue to help Living Waters to obtain their vision to help many children by continuing to build more model homes and help the orphans and widows. We encourage you to pray about helping these children’s homes by making a donation to King of Glory Ministries International or by donating directly to Living Waters Ministries.

 RECEIVING THE FATHER’S HEART- Touched by the Lord

 

In 2001 while traveling in Uganda, Kevin was powerfully touched by the Lord. During this experience he was "taken up" into the realms of heaven and began to see hundreds of images of children flash before his spirit.

 

Each time Kevin would see a child he would have a revelation of the child, knowing the child's condition. Most were orphans. Most were starving. Most were homeless and hungry, and all were in need of basic provisions. These images of children flashed before the "eyes of Kevin's heart."

 

As Kevin was shown each child, he was simultaneously given Jesus' heart of compassion for each and every one of those orphans. Kevin began to weep as compassion welled up from within his own heart. He was broken and saw and understood the Father’s compassion and heart for the fatherless and widows. Image after image of children flashed by in the spirit. Hundreds of children filled his mind. Suddenly Kevin knew how the Lord felt and even wept for the helpless and fatherless ones in East Africa and throughout the earth.

 

This experience lasted for a long time with a multitude of orphans coming into Kevin's mind. With each child that he saw Kevin was given a supernatural revelation of the child’s suffering, emotional trauma, and immediate needs. It was almost too much to bear. After Kevin had wept bitterly, the Holy Spirit spoke to him in a clear and distinct way saying, "Will you build homes for my children?”

 

When that experience occurred in 2001, Kevin was still coming out of poverty and oppression himself. So the Lord's request to him seemed overwhelming to his natural mind. Just barely able to pay his rent and meet his own bills, Kevin saw no possible or earthly way to build homes for orphans in East Africa. However, he prayed briefly before saying, "Lord, if You will help me I will build homes for your children."

 

At that moment the Spirit of God lifted off of Kevin and he was certain that God had called him to help orphans and to minister the Father's love to them. Later in Seattle, Washington, Kevin experienced a very similar and powerful visitation of Jesus in which the Lord confirmed this call. Within a short period of time after this Kevin began to prepare to start construction of orphan homes in Tanzania.

 

(See the article "The Weeping Room" in the Kiaros Words Section of this web page for more details.)

 

Kevin purposed in his heart to build homes and minister the love of the Father's heart by clothing, feeding, and providing for the children's basic needs. He has never forgotten this call, and King of Glory Ministries International continues to help orphans as they can in these difficult and challenging times.

 

The Lord is a God of mercy!

 

The words of the Apostle James began to ring and resonate in Kevin's heart.

 

James 2:13-18 illustrates the Fathers heart of mercy:

 

For judgment is without mercy to the one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment. What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, and one of you says to them, "Depart in peace, be warmed and filled," but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead. But someone will say, "You have faith, and I have works." Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.

 

After these two encounters with the Lord concerning orphans, Kevin began to earnestly pray and seek the Lord’s direction for the place to build children's homes. The Lord supernaturally opened the door for King of Glory Ministries to start helping widows and orphans in Mwanza, Tanzania.

 

We began by building a home for children in the Llemelua region of the city. For over six years we have ministered to between twenty-four and twenty-seven children who lived at the Mount Zion Children's home. Even though that children's home collapsed in 2009 due to corruption of the hosts, we continue to feed and care for many of those same children today.

Kathy and Kevin certainly thank you for your help and any assistance you can be in the future. God bless you for your time and consideration.
