Last year, Heath and Angela Many, missionaries serving in Kenya at Tenwek Hospital, posted a Christmas list on their blog of the greatest needs in Kenya that you could donate to. This year, they decided to make a list again. Is the Lord calling you to get involved in the Manys’ ministry by making a special Christmas donation?

“Tis the season! No better day than ‘Giving Tuesday’ to roll out my 2nd annual Grown up Christmas List! Even though this year we will have the joy of celebrating Christmas in America, our hearts and minds are still with our Kenyan friends and neighbors. Throughout the past few years, our vision has grown bigger, our passion deeper, and our excitement greater about what God is doing in East Africa through Tenwek Hospital, our PAACS graduates, and our local Kenyan church.
“Although it has been humbling and challenging to live and work in an area of the world with such great need, it has also been rewarding beyond measure. I know that our blog has been silent since our return to the US this past summer. We have found it difficult to express in words the ups and downs of living between two ‘homes.’ Returning to the US with fresh eyes has been interesting! Maybe we will share more in a future post about the good, the bad, and the ugly of this fresh perspective. But one surprising outcome of our experience so far in serving as ‘missionaries’ is the amazing way that God has allowed us to connect so many people within our circle (and even beyond) to His work in the world. Ironically, even though we have ‘less’ by the world’s standards now, we have been able to GIVE even MORE…by being conduits of your blessings which have been given so generously.
“We have been continually amazed at how God has used YOU (our community in America) to bless our community in Kenya! So in this season of giving, we wanted to again highlight some needs near to our hearts. If you are hoping to make a real difference with your dollars this Christmas season, instead of more online shopping for more ‘stuff’…consider one of our wish-list items!”
