Praise the Lord! Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!” - Psalm 106:1
2014 was an awesome year for Kershaw’s Challenge. Thanks to the enthusiasm of many supporters, it was our biggest year to date. We were blown away by the opportunities to work with such incredible beneficiaries. The Lord IS good! We’ve said it before…but we couldn’t accomplish this important work without the support of those who have joined our team. So as we reflect back on 2014 and trace the Lord’s faithfulness, we hope that you will rejoice with us! By God’s grace, Kershaw’s Challenge raised $900,000 in 2014. Every dollar went directly to our four beneficiaries. In celebration of an amazing year…
Thanks to your generosity, new land was purchased for a second children’s home in Lusaka, Zambia.
We have been so encouraged by the effective ministry of the Arise Home. The children are thriving and the housemothers are playing an integral role in their young lives. Together with Arise Africa, we prayerfully considered a second home. This second home will allow for boys and girls to live in separate homes and therefore receive more gender-specific mentoring. After 2014, we were able to purchase the land and begin plans for the home. We are so excited for this incredible progress and can’t wait to start building!
Thanks to your generosity, 170 children received life changing surgeries and new medical equipment at a hospital in Lusaka, Zambia.
Our friends at CURE International in Zambia are making an incredible impact in the city of Lusaka. We love the way they treat the WHOLE patient—body and soul. In the name of Jesus, they provide life-altering surgeries for children in desperate need of help. Kershaw’s Challenge 2014 focused on funding 170 surgeries and new medical equipment necessary for excellent medical care.
Thanks to your generosity, 20 homeless families were taken off the street of L.A. and put into a transitional family housing program—offering a home and resources to get back on their feet again.
The Dream Center in Los Angeles seeks to meet the desperate needs of people in their city. Their transitional family housing program offers hope and a fresh start for families struggling in the plight of homelessness. Our 2014 funding went to supporting this critical work. We are so grateful for the redemptive opportunity given to children and their parents in L.A.
Thanks to your generosity, a baseball “Field of Dreams” will encourage team sports and community involvement in West Dallas.
The sports ministry at Mercy Street seeks to meet children and share Jesus through the activity of team sports. As the ministry grows, so does the need for space to play! The funds from 2014 went to building this awesome new baseball field.
