LOVE CLOSE FIRST
Anna* just turned 17. She has a shy smile and speaks with a sweet grace but her eyes mask pain. When she was 7, Anna’s dad abandoned the family, sending her mom into a deep, unrelenting depression. Anna has not been hugged, kissed or encouraged by a parent for over a decade. Now a teenager, she is in danger as she seeks out love. I pray she doesn’t look for it in the wrong places.
Carving Out a Future
In November 2015, Please Pass the Bread sent a team of woodworkers to Kericho, Kenya to work with Pastor Philemon, a local chaplain and Please Pass the Bread program coordinator. Pastor Philemon opened a small workshop, teaching former prison inmates pratical skills, hoping it would help them find jobs and even start businesses. With your help we were able to aid in the training, and equip the shop with much needed tools. Now our prayer is that these men will be able to carve out sustainable futures for themselves.
