Part of the reason we run Christian House Sitters is to raise funds for Christian work in South Africa. This money is channeled through Unsung Heroes a Christian ministry working with Christians in a wide variety of areas.
I have just spent a few minutes looking at their web site to update myself on the many projects they are involved with.
Here is a brief summary of some of them.
The Love of Christ Ministries.
Type of Project: Abandoned Babies (partner project)
Profile: The Jarvis family started sheltering babies in 1993. The purpose of The Love of Christ Ministries is to accept into it’s care any newborn infant (without exception) who has been abandoned or totally destitute. Thereafter, the Ministry undertakes to nurture with unconditional love such infants by providing them with a long term family environment within which to grow into adulthood.
The Love of Christ Ministries also accepts into it’s care and provides a safe haven for terminally ill Aids babies.
Due to this family’s endeavours, to date over 300 babies have been adopted both within South Africa and overseas.
Some of their other projects include:
HIV/AIDS Home Based Care and Child Care – Gauteng
Job Creation, Children in Crisis, Rehabilitation of the Destitute Farming Programmes – Eastern Cape
Education and Primary Health Care – Eastern Cape
Special Needs Children – Gauteng
Early Childhood Development and Haven – North West
All this work needs money. Christian House Sitters is proud to be able to help. A minimum of 10% of all income (note income not profits) is donated to Unsung Heroes.
Our members therefore get a reduced price holiday, help other Christians and support the work of Unsung Heroes.
I love my job!
