Sarasota Real Estate Agent and Pastor Using Home Sale Commissions to Feeding Starving Kids Charity
Sarasota real estate agent Daniel Hilts and his wife Judy run a "Life for Children International" Charity Mission in two villages outside of Nairobi Africa. With the money raised from home sales this real estate team feeds over 2,000 children daily.
"Not only do we feed approx 2000 kids per day, we have about 200 we are putting though school. We also start mothers (who have lost their husbands to AIDS etc.) in their own jobs of sewing, growing food to sell etc. Then some of our kids have gone on to college. so it keeps us busy", said Hilts who splits his time between selling real estate and doing ministry work.
The "Life for Children International"
For some donors and mission contributers it is a life changing relationship. According to donors Clive & Sherry Houston-Brown:
"Our family has had the honor and the pleasure of sponsoring children in the slums of Kenya through Life for Children International sponsorship program for almost a decade now. We have rejoiced as some of "our children" completed high school and went on to college or trade schools. We have prayed as others struggled to learn in a harsh environment. And we have cried as we grieved over the death of our little Emily who lost her life simply by stepping on a rusty nail.
We are proud and humbled to be able to play a part in the support of children and families in an impoverished township and thank God for the blessings He has given us. We do this in rememberance of the sacrifice made for all of us upon the cross. Through the years, the Life for Children International sponsorship program staff have become an extended family to us as they keep us informed of how all the children are doing. They have been wonderful partners in this experience and I praise God for their work and their dedication to this worthy cause.”
