Heart to Care Foundation Group is a ministry in western Kenya to orphans and widows, most of whom have been impoverished by HIV-AID. They provide care and services of the best quality to the vulnerable and the less privileged children so as to be able to face life and to be grounded with the sound and prudent Word of God.The ministry is supervised by Pastor Philip Osenya and a board of local Christians.
Heart to Care has been providing food, clothing, school uniforms, fees, and supplies for orphans in the homes of stable widows and adults and the necessities of life for widows since 2000. HTC has ministered to over 100 orphans with the goal of seeing them grow up to be educated, spiritually influenced, productive, and self-supporting adults. Currently there are just over 50 children in the orphanage.
It cost $720 dollars a year to provide for a child’s needs in the orphanage including, the fees for attending the public schools, and their supplies and uniform.
The 2018 Sno Glo offering will be going directly to supporting the children in Heart to Care Orphanage. Depending on the amount of the offering, it will provide multiple children with the opportunity to go to school and help HTC care for the children’s needs. It’s hard for us here in the United States to fathom that there are children in other countries that don’t have the same opportunities we have when it comes to education. We take it for granted and sometimes even complain about our schooling, when there children out there that would give anything to simply learn how to write and read.
What a joy it is to be able to give of the resources God has blessed us with to bless other children that are in need.

The RiSE team travels on behalf of Clarks Summit University, making stops at locations across many states. The name RiSE comes from the words of John the Baptizer in John 3:30 and is the foundation of the team’s purpose: To see Jesus’ name (which must increase) lifted higher to rise above all other names (which must decrease). The lower case “i” in the team logo is an expression of this desire, “‘i’ must decrease.” RiSE endeavors to use music, scripture and relationships to help people realize the presence of God and to respond accordingly. In developing authentic God-centered relationships RiSE creates interest among future students by showing them how God can use Clarks Summit University to assist them in their life and global Christian leadership development.
