“Today is one of those days for me that has marked a moment in my heart and mind that will never be forgotten.” says Kendra Doutt, missionary in Nicaragua. “This day will forever change my perspective of child hunger. While sitting at breakfast across from a 9 year old boy I asked if he would like more food and he said ‘no’ with his words but I could tell he wanted more. I asked ‘Are you sure?’ and he said ‘I don’t want anyone to hit me.’ I said, ‘No…

Olivier is from Goma, Democratic Republic of Congo and was working as a radio presenter when the M23 seized Goma. He was also a student at the University studying mathematics.

“The war in Congo was very, very bad. We were very lucky. We all escaped from my family.  In the villages we passed it was very bad.  God helped us to get here.” “Because there is no war here I will stay here.  I have children to raise. I want to raise them without fear.  When I remember the bullets flying I am afraid.  My heart is scared.  I am so glad to be here where it is safe.” Sarah and her children now live in the Rwamwanja Refugee Settlement…
