My Fathers House

This blog post goes out to the MFH followers who are also following me here. We hope and pray that maybe one of these pieces of information will educate you enough to put your support somewhere else, somewhere that you are 100% sure where all your donations are going.
  I received a mail today with some interesting information.  The Koch's had a New Year's eve party and invited all past kids and families to come and celebrate with presents and all the other stuff that goes along with a New Year Eve Party.  The only thing they ALL had to do to be able to walk through the door is apologize to Jim and Penie.  Well some didn't go, because then they felt they would be lying about the abuse if they apologized.  So they didn't go.  Others went, because all they had to do was say they were sorry and they would get gifts.  I really wish the manipulation was not going on, because the Jamaicans from MFH are poor, pretty darn poor,  so it would be easy to offer them gifts for their entire family and get something out of it for themselves.  That is manipulation at its finest, and it is wrong, so wrong, that it makes me sick to think about.  Do your homework people, there are many many many other mission groups out there that are100% real, truthful, honest, and with high high integrity.

As the children of My Father's House have always been repent for your sins and god will forgive you. The children were only asked to repent if they had reason to repent for a sin they committed. The New Years and Christmas celebrations at My Fathers House have always been a annual tradition for many years enjoyed by all who attend. In my experience for anyone at Christmas time, gifts are given out of love not for manipulation. A shipping container filled with many donated supplies will be distributed by the teams coming to stay at My Fathers House in the coming months. So much good will come from this that I feel the need to share it with your blog followers. Jim and Penie Koch are working very hard to bring teams to Jamaica to help in the very poor areas you are referring to such as Petersville and Gulley Bank. Why you would want to in any way stop this from happening by discouraging donations and support is a mystery to me. Your love for the Jamaican people is evident on your blog so it would be wonderful to see your support here for any mission group that is doing good in Jamaica after you have made the decision to go home to Washington. The need is so great there and the Koch's continue to do much good in Jamaica as they have for the last 15 years.

1 John 1:9
"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."

Acts 2:38
And Peter said to them, “Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit."
