“And Jesus said to Zacchaeus, “Today salvation has come to this house, because he, too, is a son of Abraham. For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.”

Lost and Found

All of us know what it is like to lose something! I still remember the details of when I lost my wallet in the late 60’s. Many people in Northern California lost their homes with all its contents due to the raging fires this past month! They also will “never forget!”


Nyasha Found

Nyasha is a 20-month-old boy who was found on the street, barely breathing and near death. He had severe kwashiorkor and rickets. He was nursed back to health in the hospital, but unfortunately had to wait there for six months because no one was found to clain him. Nyasha arrived at our Hands of Hope Chileleko home last spring He still is unable to walk, but is gradually getting stronger. He can stand up for several seconds and take a few steps. He is receiving a lot of tender loving care.

Tarisai Found

Ten-year-old Tarisai was brought to Chileleko three years ago after she was found wandering in the streets by the police. She was malnourished and underweight when found. She has adjusted well to the Chileleko Home and is an average student. She is pictured here wearing some new clothes that that she was given. 


Where would Tarisai and Nyasha be if they hadn’t been found? I don’t have an answer for that question.  But I know for sure that I wouldn’t be involved in saving lost children and introducing them to Jesus if the Savior hadn’t found me! We long for every one of the 1,800 children that Hands of Hope reaches to come to Jesus when they are young. You are involved in making our passion a reality. Thank you!


Because of Jesus and His love,
