At Easter... all things are possible through your faith

Keneth is 12 years old. He was born with knock knees.

Every step he takes is agony. Every day it gets worse and he’s running out of time.

Here in Australia, he would have received surgery immediately and grown up like any other young boy – running around, playing football, and going to school. No one would ever have known the difference.

But Keneth was born in a remote and poverty-stricken village. His parents earn less than $1.50 a day. Here, help is a luxury no one can afford.

For Keneth, for his parents, hope seems impossible.

“Jesus looked at them and said, ‘With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God’.”

– Mark 10:27

Your kindness is the answer to Keneth’s prayers

As Jesus teaches us, everything is possible for one who believes. If you believe, then you are the key to Keneth’s hopes.

Your Easter gift will help pay for CBM-funded orthopaedic surgeons to correct Keneth’s knock knees. Your faith will help him rise up and walk proudly.

Your kindness will deliver him from this pain…

“When I am walking it feels as if my bones are breaking. I don’t play with other children. They call me funny names like ‘Karema’ or ‘Kimuga’(*).

“They sometimes ask me why I am not going to school anymore. Never do I tell them the true reason. It makes me feel ashamed.

“I hope that I get help. I would love to play with other children. I would like to have a friend.”

* Both words ‘Karema’ and ‘Kimuga’ mean “disabled”.

Your faith will lift Keneth up

The path to the hilltop home where Keneth lives is long, steep and treacherous. One false step could be deadly. And of course, every step is agony.

As a result, Keneth is now virtually a prisoner in his own home. He doesn’t go to school anymore. And that means his hopes for a brighter future are vanishing.

You can bring them back. Your Easter gift will help him get the surgery he needs. Help him walk again. Help him rise up, go back to school, and get the education that will unlock a brighter future.

What a wonderful thing to be able to do. Especially at Easter. A time when we remember the great sacrifice Jesus made for us all. A time we celebrate the great hope He brought into the world. A time when all things are possible.

Healing. Redemption. New life.

But time is running out

Keneth has lived in agony for far too long.

And now, at the age of 12, his time is running out. If he doesn’t get the surgery he needs soon, he will be too old for it to be effective.

Every single day that passes makes a difference.

The sooner you send a life-changing gift, the better chance he has. Please let God work through you this Easter, because all things are possible through your faith in Him.
