Andrus Family Mission
The truth is that their are 143 million orphaned children and 11 million children starve to death or die from preventable diseases, 8.5 million work as child slaves and 2.3 million live with H.I.V that adds up to 164.8 million needy children.
There are 2.1 billion people on this earth who proclaim to be Christians if only 8 percent of Christians would care for one more child there wouldn’t be any statistic left. We have the freedom and opportunity to do something about it. Now that we know the need we are responsible.Our Mission
From the moment we stepped foot on the red soil of Africa in September 2011 our family will never be the same. Although we were exhausted we would not close our eyes for a minute. The extreme amount and severe poverty was too much to take in. We visited overpopulated orphanages and saw little abandoned children eating the left over burnt trash. How could we make a difference? There are so many of them and so few of us. How can we go back home to our beautiful home with all our stuff?
God has giving us a joy and a peace as we have begun the process of selling all our things to go serve in Africa.The Plan
The Andrus family just returned from Africa where they initiated a needs assessment to find where their talents, gifts and financial treasures were most needed and will be best utilized. While we were there we temporarily assisted Real 4 Christ
God is leading our family to work with street youth of Mombasa. These youth, if not helped, will get into drug trafficking, prostitution, and terrorist activity, which are ever present in Mombasa. The organization that we will be working closely with is Rapha House Kenya
