Nigerian Missionary Projects

From Maketha VeShette

I'm raising money to help provide food, shelter, and essential items to poverty-stricken women and children in Nigeria. I've been funding projects from my personal finances, but need assistance to help more people.

I'm so proud of this young lady right here. She's my spiritual daughter and she was also a guest on The Healing Station several months ago and she shared the story about how she was raised in poverty in Nigeria. She had to work at a young age to help support her family and pay for her own education. After finishing school, she worked and saved for an entire year to open a bakery. Unfortunately, she had to close it as a result of robbery because she lost everything.

During her interview on The Healing Station, I asked viewers to donate and help her restart her business. The donations were not much more than $200, but she took the money and made it work for her. She used it to buy some equipment and supplies that allow her to bake and package her products. Every day, she hits the streets to make sales and she's growing her business.

Although I might be a little biased because of the love I have for her, I must say that her treats are absolutely delicious. She brought me a cake as a thank you gift. My daughters and I devoured it in minutes. So, not only is she a smart Girl Boss, but she's also got real skills.

It just goes to show...where there's a will, there's a way. And God is truly a way maker.

To God Be All the Glory!!

More Info

Living overseas has allowed me the opportunity to recognize the dire need for assistance with homeless women and children around the world. Currently, my missions have brought me to West Africa, Nigeria. Many families here are forced to live off of less than $1 a day. Women and children are living in poverty and begging on the streets just to afford a simple drink of water. And though, we cannot save the world alone, we can make a positive impact by saving the ones we can.

Please give!!

Update #1

Meet Jeremiah. He's our latest Nigerian mission.

I remember years ago watching TV and wishing I could help the poor, less fortunate children they advertised about in Africa. And one day, as I was rocking this baby to sleep, God brought to my mind the fact that I was in an African country, holding an African baby, and doing exactly what my heart desired all those years ago.

The baby in the photo is Jeremiah. He belongs to very hard working parents who are BARELY able to make ends meet. My oldest daughter goes to get him and brings him to our house every day so that he can have a bath and food to eat. He spends the entire day with us and he has become a part of the family.

It's been a pleasure to watch him go from a quiet, lethargic, little infant to a loud, happy, child that's trying to walk and talk. He's very tiny for his age, but he is getting stronger every day. He be all over the house getting into everything...but the important thing is that he knows he's in a place that's filled with love.

In addition to the food he eats at our house, once a month, we supply diapers, wipes, cereal, and milk for him to have in his own home. He'll be one year old next month, December 8, and we hope to celebrate his big day in a big way. The opportunity is available for anyone who wants to join our mission in making his 1st birthday a great one.

I thank God for answering prayers and using us to make a difference. God is faithful...and He's a way maker.

To God Be All the Glory!!
