A Word from the Founder

Dr. Munir S. Kakish

Dear Partners,

Thank you for your interest in RCO Ministries and the Home of New Life in the Holy Land.  I am so blessed to be a part of this ministry, and I would like to share with you the background of the boys home, its purpose, as well as the vision the Lord has given me for the needy and impoverished children of the Holy Land.

Many families in the Holy Land are unable to provide the basic necessities for their children due to the death of a parent, high unemployment and the continual economic and political tensions.  Children are in great need of love, security, and opportunities for a brighter future.  The Home provides a loving Christian environment that meets the spiritual, physical, and emotional needs of the children.  We provide shelter, clothing, Christian schooling, and all other needs.

Unfortunately, the unending wars in the Holy Land have ravished the economy and social order.  Those who suffer the most are those who can do the least about it–the children.  Economic instability, family strife, and other social problems have increased dramatically.  The tension in the West Bank and Gaza Strip has created an increase in divorce rates – resulting in children being part of dysfunctional families.  Thankfully, the Home can be an effective ways to raise Christian leaders.

When I was 10 years old, I was sent to a Christian boys’ home.  I accepted Christ as my Savior while I was there.  Soon afterwards, I heard the call of God to the ministry.  Many of the Christian leaders in our area were raised in Christian boys’ homes like the one in which I was raised.  God gave me a vision to open an home to provide Christian training and demonstrate Christian love.  God spoke to my heart to provide care and love for the children of the Holy Land.  Each year more children are in desperate need of care.  Right now, our home is at capacity; however, my goal is to raise funds to build a girls’ and boy s’ home with housing for 60 children.  This will help address the dire need for assistance.
Your involvement will impact a child in the Holy Land for life!

I look forward to hearing from you.

In Christ,

Munir S. Kakish
