Donating to Saved by Grace Ministries and Its Missions and Projects

I know it can be a little overwhelming given the number of needs expressed by the various international ministries which ask Saved by Grace Ministries for assistance. Nonetheless, my heart is touched by the recent responses of compassion and generosity which saved an orphanage in Kenya which was in danger of being lost.

Proverbs 3:9 (NASB)
9  Honor the LORD from your wealth And from the first of all your produce;

Hebrews 13:16 (NASB)
16  And do not neglect doing good and sharing, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.

Greetings in the precious name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Donations

You work hard for your money and have expectations regarding how your donations are being used. Rest assured, 100% of your tax deductible donations go towards the ministry projects you designate. All processing fees and other overhead expenses are paid by Saved by Grace Ministries through its general fund. Undesignated donations go towards the general fund and are used to pay the processing fees and overhead expenses, such as insurance. There are basically three categories of donations: specifically designated, generally designated, and undesignated.

Specifically designated donations are those donations which are made by clicking the Donate button in a page or post regarding a specific mission or project. Any donations received are used as specifically designated/described by that page or post.

Generally designated donations are those donations that are made by clicking the Donate button within one of the general designations located on the right side of the webpage. General designations include Mission Trips, Bibles and Gospel Tract Distribution, and Orphans, Widows, and the Less Fortunate.

Undesignated donations are those donations that are made by clicking the Donate button labeled Saved by Grace, Inc. located on the right side of the webpage. As stated above, any donations received in this category are used to pay processing fees and overhead expenses.

Current Needs

  • Saved by Grace Ministries has had a number of requests for Bibles recently in various native languages. Please consider donating to this need by clicking on the Donate button labeled Bibles and Gospel Tract Distribution located on the right side of the webpage.
  • I have been invited by Rev. Abraham Siafa of Spring of Joy Ministries to participate in the grand opening of his new church in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, April 24-26. Springs of Joy Ministries will cover the cost of lodging; but, Saved by Grace Ministries will need to cover the travel costs (approximately $500). Please consider donating to this need by clicking the Donate button labeled Mission Trips located on the right side of the webpage.
  • It is that time of year when Saved by Grace Ministries has to renew its insurance ($500 by March 29) and pay a number of other overhead expenses. Please consider donating to these needs by clicking the Donate button labeled Saved by Grace, Inc. located on the right side of the webpage.

Thank you for your prayerful consideration of these ministry needs. May the Lord bless you for your generosity.

God Saves Kenya Orphanage Through Your Generous Donations!

Praise be to God and to all of you who so generously donated. The orphanage has been saved!!! Because of your compassion, thoughtfulness, and generosity, the money needed to save the orphanage was raised in time to pay off the debts owed before the deadline. Praise the Lord and thank you so much! You will never know this side of Heaven how much it means to me that you selflessly and sacrificially gave to save the orphans from a terrible fate. May God reward each of you and richly bless you exceedingly beyond your ability to measure! Thank you.

Orphans 021 - NYARENDA CHILDREN’S HOME CENTREOlorei Independent Fellowships was in danger of losing its orphanage, Nyarenda Chirldren’s Home Centre, on Monday, February 9, 2015, if it could not raise $810 to pay off expenses incurred by the recent injury and death of one of its orphans, Bivon Nyamwamu Makori (see “Urgent: Olorei Independent Fellowships in Danger of Losing Orphanage” for details).

Urgent: Olorei Independent Fellowships in Danger of Losing Orphanage

Olorei Independent Fellowships is in danger of losing its orphanage, Nyarenda Chirldren’s Home Centre, on Monday, February 9, 2015, if it cannot raise $810 to pay off expenses incurred by the recent injury and death of one of its orphans, Bivon Nyamwamu Makori.

Orphans 021 - NYARENDA CHILDREN’S HOME CENTREOlorei Independent Fellowships is in danger of losing its orphanage, Nyarenda Chirldren’s Home Centre, on Monday, February 9, 2015, if it cannot raise $810 to pay off expenses incurred by the recent injury and death of one of its orphans, Bivon Nyamwamu Makori (see “Update (01-28-2015): Bivon Nyamwamu Makori” and “Follow Up: Bivon Nyamwamu Makori” for details).

Because they did not have the money for Bivon’s medical and funeral expenses ($260 and $550 respectively – the county clerk took care of the $150 needed for Bivon’s coffin), Olorei Independent Fellowships was forced to use the title deed of the land of the orphanage as a guarantee to pay these expenses. While allowing Bivon’s funeral to proceed yesterday, this only bought Olorei Independent Fellowships an extra week to raise the money. If they fail to pay the $810 by Monday, February 9, 2015, the land of the orphanage will be confiscated. The orphanage will be lost. The remaining 18 orphans will be homeless.

Your help is urgently needed to prevent the loss of the orphanage. Please consider making a tax deductible donation, of any amount, by clicking the button below. Thank you for your compassion, generosity, and quick attention to this matter. May God bless you abundantly.




The grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ be with you always,
Bro. Chris

PS) Any amount raised in excess of the $810 will first be applied towards the $350 still due to the county clerk for orphan Thomas Onsakia Robert’s funeral (see “Memorial Service: Thomas Onsakia Robert” for details) and then to supplying food for the remaining orphans.

UPDATE (February 9, 2015): PRAISE THE LORD! GOD SAVES ORPHANAGE! Please see “God Saves Kenya Orphanage Through Your Generous Donations!” for details.

Update (01-26-2015): Bivon Nyamwamu Makori

Bivon has been readmitted to the hospital. His wounds are infected and the doctors say he needs “supporters” for his spine. The doctors are demanding $450 for labor and $280 for the spine “supporters”. It is critical Bivon receive this operation as soon as possible if he is to have any hope of survival. The total amount of $730 must be raised in order for the doctors to operate. Time is critical.

Bivon Nyamwamu Makori, an orphan under the care of Olorei Independent Fellowships and Nyarenda Children’s Home Centre in Kenya, has taken a turn for the worse. Saved by Grace Ministries brought him to your attention when he severely injured himself as he and four of his fellow orphans attempted to steal some food to ease their hunger and that of their fellow orphans (see “Desperate Situation: One Dead and One Severely Injured” for details). His condition has deteriorated and he is near death.

Although he could not walk, Bivon was in reasonable health when he was first released from the hospital a few weeks ago. He needed constant attention and care since he could not care for himself; however, he rested comfortably. Unfortunately, his health has steadily declined over the past couple weeks and has quickly deteriorated over the past couple days to where he is now in critical condition.

Bivon has been readmitted to the hospital. His wounds are infected and the doctors say he needs “supporters” for his spine. The doctors are demanding $450 for labor and $280 for the spine “supporters”. It is critical Bivon receive this operation as soon as possible if he is to have any hope of survival. The total amount of $730 must be raised in order for the doctors to operate. Time is critical.

Please pray about this need and, if it is within your ability to do so, please make a tax deductible donation, in any amount, towards the $730 needed to save Bivon’s life. May God bless you for your compassion and your generosity. Thank you.
