Pictured above:Introducing to you my joint outreach ministry partner Miriam!

Miriam is bringing the Gospel of hope, healing and joy to the hearts and lives of the

children of Africa !...Miriam has been trained and mentored by Petra College in

South Africa for Children's Ministry...Miriam's calling as a teacher and missionary is

in doing missions work in the field to lift up the African child with the full Gospel of

Christ, bringing them to their God-given potential, by equipping and training

children teachers and children workers there in Africa with the help of God's Holy

Spirit for effective Children's Ministry...

                SAVING BABY MALAIKA....... ( RIVERFRIEND )


This is the tragic story of a little African baby girl who had been abandoned

by her mother in the wilderness and was attacked by wild dogs, severely

bitten in wounding her face and the loss of one arm...The child was found

and rescued and brought to a hospital where this precious little girl fought

for her life...Doctors were able to treat her wounds but didn't have much hope

she would survive, but even if she did, the doctors said she may never walk

or have a normal child's life because of her injuries and one arm disability...

Well, God had other plans !...Jeremiah 29:11...She did survive and her plight

and miraculous recovery story in God's purpose for saving her life was this

ministry's Spiritual heart tugging motivation through the prompting of the

Holy Spirit in establishing the RIVERFRIEND PROJECT and with the help

of my joint outreach ministry partner Miriam, this desire became a reality and

so The Riverfriend Project Toys for African Children was born  to bring the

Gospel hope and love of Jesus into their little hearts and the joy of a toy into

their hands they can can call their very own....2 Corinthians 9:7

Miriam and I nicknamed her  " Riverfriend " because like Moses, she was

found and rescued in the wilderness for God's plan and purpose...

                             

Continue to read about the RIVERFRIEND PROJECT below and see the

amazing pictures that follow of our precious little Riverfriend baby's story

and what God has done in this little girls' life since her miracle rescue to the

beautiful, healthy and happy little girl she is today !...God is good !


            

                    

                *** INTRODUCING ***


        THE RIVERFRIEND PROJECT 


                    TOYS FOR AFRICAN CHILDREN


Through God's grace and power and of the prompting of the Holy Spirit,

it gives my heart and Spirit great joy to announce that I Minister David and

the Church of the Living Waters Prayer and Healing Ministry has now joined

in an anointed partnership by the Holy Spirit in a joint outreach ministry with

Miriam in Kenya Africa in what we call our CIS, ( Connected in the Spirit )

from afar in desiring every African child to have the Gospel hope and love of

Jesus in their hearts and a toy in their hands to play with !...filling both their

physical and Spiritual needs with God's provision of food for their bodies for

nourishment and proper nutrition, the Gospel to feed their souls, and a toy in

their hands to call their very own !!!...


By God's hand of favor and blessing upon it, this union of our two ministries

from afar has laid the ground work for our outreach ministry organization to

evolve to become :


 THE RIVERFRIEND PROJECT AND HOPE FOUNDATION !


                          CIS Joint Outreach Ministry Mission Goal:

Too many children are growing up without Christ and salvation....One child

not knowing about God's love, mercy and forgiveness is one too many...What

a shame so many children are going without any sort of Biblical knowledge

teachings... Whose fault is it?...In Romans 10:14 God’s Word says: How then

shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed?...( Teachers ) And

how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard?....And how shall

they hear without a preacher? ( Ministers )...


      The Riverfriend Project Toys for African Children

Bringing the Gospel hope and love of Jesus into their little hearts and the joy

of a toy into their hands they can can call their very own....


Please contact me, Minister David and this ministry on our Contact Us Page

above for an address and more information to see where and how you can

help by sending the Gospel love of Jesus into their little hearts and the

simple joy of a toy into an African child's life !


Feel the joy of the Holy Spirit fill your heart with love and see how

easy it is to be a part of this blessing filling the needs of God's

precious little children of Africa !...


              Join in and help us !.....You'll be glad you did !!!


                                              
               

                     *** INTRODUCING ***


                     THE RIVERFRIEND DOLL BED 


                            The 1st Toy that started it all !!!...


In the pictures below: This doll bed made and donated by this ministry was

mailed and has arrived safely by God's hand into Miriam's hands in Africa !...

The hand crafted African doll pictured beside it, Miriam took the hand made doll

and put it together for the Riverfriend Doll Bed...This miracle gift will be

presented to Malaika ( Our Riverfriend baby ) at the orphanage as the planted

seed by the Holy Spirit as the tempered mortar on which the solid foundation of this

joint outreach ministry was born and built upon and the other toys that would follow


The Riverfriend Project and Hope Foundation was built upon this toy, with the

sincere hope and honest desire that every needy child in Africa will receive a toy in

his or her hands planted with the seed of salvation and the teachings of the Gospel

with the love of Jesus Christ !...Our earnest prayer is that others will now follow the

example of John 14:12 and join with us to bring joy, comfort and compassion to the

orphaned, sick and lost children of Africa, a hope for their future by the simple

receiving of a toy to bring joy to their hearts and into their lives !...

The cost to get this doll bed to Africa from America was so very little and so worth

the investment into bringing the Gospel of Hope and the Love of Jesus into the

lives of God's precious little children of Africa !!!....Amen !


Prayer: Heavenly Father....We ask and pray that others will see the power of

Your hand with how with ease You have made a miracle blessing come into the life

of Malaika ( Riverfriend ) Your precious little miracle girl You saved for Your

Purpose and Glory as a witness to the world how much You love and care about us

and Your precious children...Lord God, open the hearts and minds of others with

Your Spirit to be compassionate and generous in joining our mission to bless the

little hearts and lives of the children of Africa !...It takes so little to help and you will

see the immediate impact results that will mean so much to them...

As Scripture says in 2 Corinthians 9:7 So let each one give as he purposes in

his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver....


NOTE: All these toys that have been crafted by this Ministry we're an inspiration of

the Holy Spirit, anointed with a Biblical name and character, with a purpose and

reason to fill the need of God's intended recipient...In Spiritual cooperation and

coordination together, Miriam my joint outreach ministry partner in Africa are my

eyes and ears there from afar led by the Holy Spirit to reveal to her whom that

recipient will be and then in making that connection happen...None of this for this

ministry could be possible without her, her valued helping hands and heart...

   *** Introducing: Yves ***
 


From 2 Corinthians 9:7 : So let each one give as he purposes in his heart,

not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver...


Sharing a testimony from my outreach ministry partner Miriam on a

mission trip in Burundi Africa...The pictures below are of a 10 year old boy

who lives on the streets and was hungry and ill Miriam had encountered who

was in dire need...He has two brothers and his mother is a beggar on the

street in Bujumbura..


Read Miriam's testimony after the pictures to see how the Lord led

her to him to fill his needs and how much of an impact just a simple act of

caring kindness can make in a person’s life !
 

This is the boy Yves Miriam came upon on her way to church....By the

prompting of the Holy Spirit Miriam stopped to see if the boy was alright...


After awakening the boy, Miriam could see he was not well, hungry and in

need of food in meeting his immediate physical need...


Miriam soon discovered Yves was also suffering an affliction of a serious

inner ear infection....It was now time to put faith in action and get the boy

to a hospital or clinic for him to receive immediate medical attention...

The doctors there quickly confirmed Miriam's suspicion and diagnosed Yves

condition as an ear infection and prescribed ear drops and an antibiotic

medicine for 10 days...Through Miriam's encounter response and by God's

grace, Yves conditioned improved significantly overnight with the excess

fluids in his ears having dried up...God surely had His hand in this !


( Below: Yves waiting for his turn for treatment at the clinic )



( Pictured below )

Here's Yves getting stronger, feeling better and healing well from his ordeal...

We thank God for His hand of provisional intervention in sending Miriam to

Yves that day in lifting him up out of his despair, to minister the care and

attention he needed, filling both his physical and Spiritual needs, bringing the

Gospel hope and love of Jesus into a young boys heart by just a simple act

of caring kindness to let him know God loves and cares for him...3 John 1:2



                                          MIRIAM'S TESTIMONY....YVES STORY...11-29-2016
 

My ministry partner Minister David: Sharing a good works testimony with you...

 
This morning my Christian friend Patricia who is hosting and housing me here

during my mission trip dropped me off from her office where normally I then walk to

church...On my way this morning I came across a boy who was sleeping by a

sidewalk...After looking closely, he appeared to me to be weak and sick...The Holy

Spirit prompted me to awaken him to see if he was alright and to feed him some

breakfast...I couldn’t help but notice his badly torn clothes were sewn together with

banana strings and nylon gunny bag strings...I took him to a nearby milk shop and

bought him milk and donuts as I tried to communicate to him through an

interpreter...I learned he could not speak but he seemed to understand I was trying

to help him...Only then did I notice he had a severe ear infection and fluid in his

his ears...At this writing he is here with me here at Church so that l can find out

where to take him to a hospital with the provisional funds you sent for me that I

withdrew last week...I may have to withdraw extra funds to help this boy with

clothes, and daily meals and for medicine...This was a confirmation that God wants

us to reach out to the vulnerable....So letting you know I will be taking him to the

clinic for treatment...l may have to also withdraw some more finances to care for

the boys hospital bill and other needs he may have at this time...I trust and know

this will be in agreement with you my ministry partner...UPDATE : I just came from

seeking treatment with Yves...It is sadly interesting to see how the poor are

exploited even in hospitals...I took a taxi to take him to the hospital and the taxi

driver was very helpful...He took us to four hospitals...Two were mission private

clinics, and another private hospital, only to discover there are no doctors...So we

were advised to go to the district government hospital...There we did find a doctor

who then told us he can only see us in his private clinic in the afternoon...Imagine

that,to make money over sick helpless poor people...So sad....So I came back

with him and now he is laying by a bench outside one of the church blocks at CLM

waiting for me and the taxi driver to take him to the clinic...While waiting I called a

manager of Village of Hope Home to see if he can allow him to stay there...He

came and we had a discussion, but he said the boy will need a lot of medical

attention so they cannot for that reason...So I had lunch with him, then took him to

the clinic, left him there to see the doctors while I attended school...UPDATE: After

school I took a taxi from class and now I am at the clinic...He is not been attended

to yet...There are 9 more patients still ahead of him...UPDATE: Good news !...

The doctors saw Yves and diagnosed and treated him for a serious ear infection 

and prescribed antibiotics and to return back for a check up in 10 days for further

treatment if necessary.....We are now on our way to the pharmacy to pick up the

antibiotics medicine....All went well and I gave him dinner after the pharmacy...

Then the hardest part for me came when I had to leave him again then headed for

home...At your request, yes my ministry partner I will see to it he gets new clothes,

takes regular meals and his antibiotics daily....Bless you for standing with me for his

care...The taxi driver was also kind as he followed up on Yves when l was at school

and also when it was done waiting for us...UPDATE: Sunday morning Yves is

feeling better...We’re sitting at a small cafe Yves having milk and Burundian chapati

breakfast...Then I administer the antibiotic...He will come over to church for second

and third dosage and also for lunch and dinner...UPDATE: Monday this morning we

had very hard rains but l had already managed to feed Yves breakfast and

administer his medical care medicine... Guess what? He has gained some

confidence to give me eye contact, but still a little shy...Thank you partner for all

you have done...See some attached pics to encourage you on his progress and

improvement....UPDATE: Guess what ? By lunch time today his ear infection is

beginning to clear up !...Imagine that..I couldn't believe it !...I must I have never

seen antibiotics clearing such a serious ear infection in one day from the

administering of medicine...No doubt God administered quick healing through our

prayers for him...It is so exciting to see the progress and the hand of the Lord in it.

UPDATE: I had given him a little money when coming from clinic for him to buy a

hot drink since l was getting late to go home...Wisely though he bought a gunny

bag instead which l discovered he was sleeping inside it yesterday morning...After

asking him leave to go to a cafeteria for breakfast, he hid his gunny bag on a wall

somewhere...Then I discovered the next morning he was sleeping on the ground

again without his bag..Sadly someone must have taken it while we we’re at

breakfast...So l also gave him warm second hand T shirt and trousers to wear...The

next day I discovered he still was wearing his same old clothes...Asking him about

it he says nothing perhaps he was ashamed those too might have been stolen...

I do intend to find other clothes for him and make sure he uses them....Now I 

thought it wise to give the church elder the responsibility to minister his medicine 3

times a day but I also ordered food for him where he can always go to eat at church

when l am not around...God is working in providing for his care to get well again...

UPDATE: Happy Sabbath my ministry partner...This morning Yves and l

had a good fellowship with the help of a church elder...He got a good shower from

church outside bathrooms then I took him for a good breakfast... I trust he will

return back to church for lunch and to receive his medicine... I took a pic of his ears

and you won't believe it !...The fluid in his ears have dried up just like that !...A good

sign he is healing well...God is good...UPDATE : Today Sunday and this evening l

did not see him around...I pray I will be able to continue seeing him to give him

care, make sure he takes his medicine and to monitor his progress and follow up

until all is well with him...UPDATE: UPDATE: Yves is back on track in receiving his

medication...His hearing is clear and he is now speaking and gaining confidence...

It is awesome to see him brightened up...
Yves has never been to school...

Unfortunately, when l offered help to take him to school, he declined and insisted he

wants to live in the street...I am doing my best to meet the Mother and see how we

can reach out to her...For now we can only pray and help in reaching out to Yves

where we can...Thank you ministry partner for touching many lives of the little ones

in Africa and beyond...




MY REPLY TO MIRIAM:


Well done partner !...I pray the boy is feeling better after being fed by you and

receiving medical treatment...Yes we can follow up with a revisit to the clinic in 10

days to be certain the medication has healed him...and if needed, more further

treatment...Do as the Lord and your heart leads you to do...And yes please do fill

his other needs of clothing, daily food to get stronger and well and whatever else

you feel the boy needs at this time...Thank you my ministry partner for spending the

necessary time with the boy today to care for him...I'm certain your attention &

compassion lifted him up to feel loved and valued...I stand with you now in prayer

for complete healing & restoration of his health as you keep a watchful eye on

him...Bless your heart for being a God sent Angel to the boy in his time of dire need

acting out your faith in good works the whole day through in service to the Lord

through your kind act of loving compassion for the boy...Thanks again Miriam for

blessing me to be a part of what you have done this day to show the love of Christ

to this boy...I pray your care to this boy will be a powerful witness to his heart &

Spirit that God loves him and Jesus was there for him at his hour of need standing

right beside you...Amen....Please continue to follow through and to help the boy for

his care and needs and keep me posted partner !...
