2015 howFar Ministries Project Map

howFar's work in sub Saharan Africa continues to grow. In 2015, our team has planted five new churches in remote areas. All five are located in South Kivu Provence of eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo. 
"Rebels have been ruling these remotest parts for more than 18 years and have been killing, raping and stealing goods from peasants. We are praying God for their care, especially, as they have joined howFar. God bless you for taking care of discouraged persons."   
John Mundola, howFar Director - The Democratic Republic of the Congo.
howFar currently manages 41 projects across five countries impacting thousands and thousands of lives!

Shoes for Haiti - 2 for 1

At howFar we recognize that having shoes may be normal for you and me - but for many in the world it isn't. Children in third world countries suffer from all kinds of medical conditions because their feet are exposed to the elements. Worms, infection, and injury are common problems for impoverished children.

The team at The Shoe That Grows has invented an ingenious solution! A shoe that grows with a child and lasts 5 years! Take a look at their website for the full story.

The Shoe That Grows has made there shoes available to us for just $10 per pair. Imagine giving a child a pair of shoes that will last them 5 full years.

It's such a great idea we have to help.

For every pair of shoes you purchase at $10 howFar will purchase a second pair. Yep, 2 for 1.

Click on the DONATE button, make your $10 donation and you have made two pairs of shoes available to children in Haiti.

It's as simple as that. Don't forget to print your receipt for your tax deduction!

Thank you for partnering with us to put shoes on kids.

Help Now - howFar Medical Clinic Emergency

Mothers waiting to see a nurse. howFar Clinic - Mudja, DR Congo 

"I would like to tell you that there is a new strong epidemic (epidemic) of vomiting and diarrhea which arose in Mudja since April 5th and unfortunately a child of 6 has died with it this 7th April. 

Because of that, many persons at least 26 per day are coming to the clinic, consequently, we still have a little medecines that can only last one day. We are praying God to have more medecines so that our people would not die. God bless you in your arrangements."

Back to Africa - July 2014

Renee & I are delighted to head back to Africa on July 10. 

We will meet Jim Kelly, How Far Foundation Board President, in Taveta, Kenya on July 11. Jim departed, with his family, for Tanzania and Kenya on July 3. The Kelly Team of six will tour and serve in several of howFar's projects in Maasai Villages and explore the vast and enchanting wilderness along the Kenya Tanzania border.

On July 13 we will celebrate the 9th Anniversary of the planting of howFar's first African Church - Lake Jipe Orkung'u Baptist Church.  

Then Renee, Jim and I will fly to Kigali, Rwanda to meet a team from Atlanta, Georgia. Our combined team will lead two large outdoor crusades - one in Kagina, Rwanda and the second in Mudja, DR Congo. 

While in Goma, DR Congo we will minister at howFar's Abused Women's Center and War Widows Center, at The How Far Foundation Orphanage, and at our Medical Clinic in Mudja.

Watch for stories of what God is doing from the field!
