he impact Kingdom Partners has made in 2015 is
truly incredible and such a personal encouragement
to me. For the past 16 years, you have been a
constant source of help and hope to some of the most
impoverished communities around the world . . . ultimately
saving lives and expanding the Kingdom of God. The results
of your partnership are truly amazing, and we couldn’t do
this without you!

to multitudes and in unreached communities. You are the
hands, feet, and heart of Jesus.

s you know, Grace Children’s Home was severely damaged in the earthquakes. But thanks to
your support, we are in the process of rebuilding this home and have provided help to the
staff and children throughout this tragedy. Even when the children were sleeping in tents and
temporary shelter immediately following the earthquake, they were still joyful and thankful for the help
they were receiving.
Please remain in prayer for Pastor Kam and Grace Children’s Home, as the economic blockade in Nepal
is delaying current rebuilding efforts across the nation. While they await the reconstruction, the boys and
girls are living in temporary metal structures serving as dorms. These buildings are well insulated and
have electricity to keep the children warm during the winter months. We are eager to stand with you in
seeing the reconstruction begin—restoring the ministry at this incredible children’s home.
Life for children in Nepal is often marked by hardship, sickness, and lack of opportunity—especially in
the wake of these devastating earthquakes. Your continued support ensures that the Nepali people will
prosper for generations to come.

ne of the most strategic ways we partner with you is through sponsorship. We are grateful
that Kingdom Partners believes that all children matter to God, and together, we ensure that
children experience physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Rahul Kumar is just one of
these precious children. This is his story as told by one of our partners:
Rahul comes from a poor Christian family in the northwestern part of India. His parents are farmers
and they also work as church planters and evangelists. Rahul was brought to the Maru Asha
Children’s Home when he was very young, and now he is studying in the third grade. He is very
active in school and is involved in a lot of sports. We pray and hope he will grow to continue the
work his parents are doing.
Your investment allows children, like Rahul, to have opportunities to grow and develop in a nurturing
environment filled with hope and greater opportunity.

ight now, millions lack access to the most basic necessities for daily survival, as well as the tools
and empowerment they need to stand strong in the seemingly unsurmountable challenges
ahead . . . and you refused to look away. You have been involved from the beginning, providing
life-saving aid like clean water, food, medicine, blankets, and more. You have also helped fund a desperately
needed mobile medical clinic that services 70-100 people each day. The clinic treats fevers, ailments,
and injuries free of charge, preventing these conditions from turning deadly.
This mobile medical clinic has also opened the door for the Gospel to be shared with people like
Philip who were addicted to drugs before coming into the clinic. Through the compassionate care
of our doctors, Philip found physical, psychological, and spiritual healing. Eventually, he prayed to
receive salvation through Jesus Christ.
Thank you for providing hope to refugees like Philip. You are truly investing in something that will outlive
you and last for eternity.

IRAQ AND SYRIA
hank you for helping us fulfill the Great Commission by providing the Word of God to men and
women of faith in Cuba, Nepal, China, Syria, and Iraq.
Through Kingdom Partners’ support this year, we were able to distribute 723 Bibles—investments
that truly have an eternal impact.
The Bibles you provided have included the illustrated storybook Bibles for children in the Middle East,
Bibles for persecuted Christians in Cuba, and USB Bibles for Chinese university students. Kingdom
Partners is truly transforming lives around the world through the power of the Gospel.
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path .
—Psalm 119:105 ESV
I became a Christian three years ago and
I always wanted to have a Bible. I am very
happy and very excited that you gave me
the USB so that I can grow in Christ. I am
sharing the USB information on campus
with many non-Christian students and
please pray that one day, they will become
followers of Christ.
—Zong, QiangHai Province
We do not know how we will live without
this aid that you provide to us. We are very
grateful to you; you make us feel safe and
happy. Also, thank you very much for these
Holy Bibles; this is the real bread.

his year, Hope of Life was able to reach even more Guatemalans with aid, medical care, and
community and spiritual development programs than ever before, especially since their facilities
can now house more volunteers on its campus.
In 2015, St. Luke’s Hospital provided healing and attentive care to 4,500 people suffering with everything
from life-threatening injuries to minor illnesses. Some days, the hospital may treat as many as 50
malnourished children like Emeri:
Eleven-year-old Emeri was born in an extremely poor home. Her malnourishment was so severe
that she didn’t want to attend school because the children made fun of her thin weight. Her case
was also complicated by the fact that she was terrified to swallow whole food, fearing she would
drown. Today, she has improved greatly through medical, nutritional, and psychological treatment
at St. Luke’s. Her parents are extremely grateful as they were in such a difficult economic situation
they could not help their daughter. Emeri is expected to make a full recovery.
Your investment in malnourished and suffering children, like Emeri, is invaluable as we seek to bring
physical and spiritual healing to the people of Guatemala.
The legacy of K i n gdo m Pa r t n e rs is found in every corner of Guatemala—
from bustling city streets to remote mountaintop villages. Thank you for
your continued investment in Hope of Life’s ministry and in some of the
most impoverished communities in Guatemala .

A community of 450 Guatemalans in the dry, arid village of La Torre has benefited greatly from your
compassionate giving to provide clean water. People in the community were thrilled to finally see their
dream of clean, pure water come true. Through your efforts, communities like La Torre can begin to see
It is a great joy we feel when we see the water coming out of that well, and we would like to thank
you for all you have done for us.

lean water is an essential component of Kingdom Partners’ strategy to restore health and hope
to impoverished communities worldwide. Your gift of clean water in Uganda, India, Nepal, and
Guatemala means health, education, and valuable time spent at home or school rather than
searching for water.
This year alone, Kingdom Partners has funded 1 2 we l l s that will literally
transform entire communities . . . and impact 7, 8 0 0 p e op le .

uba has seen amazing spiritual growth thanks to your support and the life-changing work that
our church planters have accomplished. Kingdom Partners’ faithful partnership has resulted in
68 churches planted and 2,788 people coming to faith in 2015. Since you first began partnering
with us, 82 churches have been established overall.
The people of Cuba are more receptive to the Gospel than ever before, and these church planters’
ministries are expanding every day. People are attending church services to hear about Christ . . . many
for the very first time.
Go therefore and make disciples . . .
—Matthew 28:19 NIV
The community has been impacted with the
Gospel of Jesus Christ, and we have seen
families transformed, living in peace, and
sowing love. In this community a church
had never been established, but today
we have a house to meet in and worship
each week. Lives continue to be built and
restored. Glory to God.
– Aniela Leon Rodriguez
Many times the Gospel was preached to
Zobeida, but she only made fun of us. One
day she lost her sight, and she decided
to put her faith in Jesus Christ. Today, she
testifies that God allowed her illness so she
could recognize her insufficiency. This sister
serves the Lord faithfully every day and
rejoices in knowing Him more.

he Maru Asha Children’s Home in Jaipur continues to help hundreds of children from the
surrounding areas and local slums. The expansion you helped provide has resulted in more
children getting help, ultimately receiving better opportunities and renewed hope. Without your
investment in this strategic ministry, these children would be trapped in the cycle of unforgiving poverty.
Our partners at Gilgal Children’s Home in Churachandpur, India, report that the children are growing and
excelling in their studies—many of them earning top scores on exams. The medical clinic you provided
is giving these children much-needed medical care, allowing for healthier bodies and, ultimately, brighter
and happier futures.
By God’s grace—and because of the continuous support, love, and prayers from World Help—Gilgal
is running smoothly. Praise God! Whenever we seek His help, He is always near us. We are proud to
be called the Children of God and we are also proud of being a partner with World Help. We give
all the glory and honor to our Father! Thank you for everything. We love each one of you.
–Gilgal Staff Member
Through your investment, you are growing Christian leaders that will impact India for Christ. Thank you
for giving them endless opportunities to reach their full potential.

alnutrition is a cruelty no child should ever experience—yet, one in five children under the age
of 5 is underweight in developing countries. These same children are even sometimes abandoned,
as their families simply do not have the ability to provide them with the basic essentials they need.
In Guatemala, Uganda, and Haiti, our partners are working to rehabilitate and restore the health of children
suffering from malnutrition. Although easily preventable, malnutrition is devastating to long-term health
—and the younger the child, the greater the physical consequences later on in life.
Three-year-old Melvin arrived at Destiny Villages of Hope in Uganda in September. Melvin’s father
was abusive and refused to provide financially for Melvin and his three siblings. His mother did her
best to grow food for the children, but was unable to provide for other needs without the father’s
support. Melvin’s mother turned to the Rescue Home, believing that the loving environment would
give him the care he so desperately needed.

ut Kingdom Partners continues to stand alongside these families. Through your faithful
investment in Destiny Campus in Uganda, you are ensuring that children in impoverished
communities are receiving an education, medical care, and opportunities to thrive. We’re happy
to report that the pediatric clinic you funded streamlines medical care for these children:
The number of children falling sick has greatly declined because they are noticed quickly and
immediately given medical attention. Considering the landscape of Destiny, carrying sick children
up and down hills is difficult. Having the clinic within the home is such a great blessing.
—Annet Lutaaya, General Caretaker at Destiny Campus
Your investment is facilitating the development of hundreds of Ugandan students, including a renovation
that will create a more spacious learning environment. By providing Destiny with a Secondary Boy’s
Dormitory, our partners will now be able to house 400 boys in this new dormitory while turning the
previous residence into additional classrooms. Overall, this will provide a more conducive classroom
environment for all students while still allowing for enough space to house the children who live on campus.
Additionally, you helped provide our fourth Rescue Home that is providing abandoned and malnourished
children a safe haven in which to receive medical attention and grow in a nurturing environment.
Kingdom Partners is truly leading the way for a Uganda that is stronger than ever before.

orld Help’s church-planting initiatives are growing rapidly, and so far in 2015 we have seen
746 new churches planted worldwide. Your support of World Help has helped provide for
these church planters, and ultimately your partnership with our church planters translates into
thousands of lives being touched by the Gospel. By supporting church-plantinging efforts in dark and
desperate places around the world . . . you are truly making an eternal impact!
One of our partners shared this story about a church you funded in India:
Last year, I met a girl named Poonam who had a hole in her heart. She had been going through
treatment, but was not getting better. Her family asked me to pray for her and, after that, every one
of us have seen a miracle of God in her life. She is completely well, and now her family is coming to
the church. Please pray for her family to come into a saving knowledge of Christ.
Your work is equipping believers to worship, grow, and share the Gospel in Nepal, Cuba, India, and China.
Thank you for partnering with us and bringing hope to these countries!

ith Kingdom Partners’ help this year, we were able to bring physical and emotional healing to
many mothers and their newborn children. You are helping restore hope and demonstrating
Christ’s love to these women in a culture where they are considered “cursed” for suffering from
obstetric fistula—an excruciatingly painful condition resulting from an extended and difficult labor.
Birhan is one of our safe motherhood ambassadors, and she has already educated more than
350 pregnant women in her community and has assisted others in delivering healthy babies in their
Roman is a 35-year-old woman who recently received care during her fifth pregnancy when
she developed fistula. Ostracized by her community, she was grateful to receive medical care
and education from these motherhood ambassadors. Today, her health is restored and she is
experiencing new acceptance within her community. Now, when she is asked if she’s comfortable
educating her community about maternal healthcare, she responds, “Yes, I am comfortable
because I am educated. I am cured. I can advise my community confidently.”
Not only are you helping these women in a desperate time of need, but you are also helping prepare
them to serve as ambassadors to their own communities as they receive training on maternal healthcare.
Thank you for standing with us and proclaiming God’s love for every person.

n 2015 alone, Kingdom Partners provided three small homes in Honduras. These homes are a
safe refuge for families, protecting them from varying weather elements and other dangers
from life on the streets. They are a first step for these families as they work hard to end the cycle
of poverty and build a better life for themselves.
The Osorios are just one family that you have impacted this year. Residing in Barrio San Francisco, Oscar
and his mother now have a place to call home. Oscar shared how grateful he was for this new home that
now protects him from mosquitos and storms.
“Thank you for giving me this joy in this New Year. I ask God to continue helping other children
who are suffering like me. God bless you all,” said Oscar.
With the help of Kingdom Partners, lives continue to be impacted through your compassion and
generosity. Thank you for providing homes to those in need.

hundreds of miles, trotted across finish lines, golfed in tournaments,
