Attention Word Slingers readers: Beginning December 11, 2019, all posts will be available at Thank you for reading Word Slingers!

I have friends I consider heroes.  They have adopted a child from foster care, a local adoption agency or an international agency.  They give me a picture of God’s work in my life.  When I accepted Jesus as my Savior, John 1:12 included me.  It says, “Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God—” (NIV).  I became a spiritual child of God, adopted into His family.  I am thankful for my friends who have made a difference in a child or several children’s lives.

Imagine hearing of a man who has rescued more than 12,000 orphans.  Shocking, right?  Known as the “World’s Largest Family”, Charles and Esther Mulli(y) had six biological children before adding the 12,000 adopted children.  The Mully Children’s Family (MCF) continues to grow.  The story of Charles Mully and his family has been made into a full-length movie.

You do not want to miss the movie “Mully,” coming to select theaters October 3-5.  I saw a prescreening of the movie in June and am excited many will have the opportunity to view such a well-made, heart-wrenching documentary.  Abandoned as a six-year-old in Kenya, Charles Mully beats the odds with God in his life.  Miracle after miracle takes place, elevating a poverty-stricken orphan to heights of riches.  Remembering his days on the streets, Mully reaches out to his first orphan in the slums of Kenya, which becomes the first of thousands of orphans he rescues.  This amazing story will astound audiences and leave them asking, “How can I make a difference?”

The Mully Children’s Family has partnered with World Crafts, a division of Women’s Missionary Union (WMU) to make a difference in the lives of some of the rescued orphans living in East Africa.  World Crafts purchases products from the Yatta Vocational Training Centre, operated by the MCF in Kenya.   Approximately 100 women a year come from a life of exploitation to participate in the training center where they receive counseling, learn a skill and practical life skills.  By purchasing a Yatta Necklace or a Yatta Purse through World Crafts, you can directly influence the lives of these women.  You can also check out the other artisans World Crafts promotes on their website,
