“I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord.
Those who have known Kelby through the years, understand that a long-awaited dream has become reality! For those who have recently become friends of Kelby's Kids, Inc, the Lord has been working out the details of Kelby’s move to Haiti for many years.
Jeremiah’s letter from the Lord (Jeremiah 29) sounds a lot like what the Lord was speaking to Kelby’s heart as he waited for the Lord to prepare the way for him to move to Port Au Prince and serve the medical needs of Haiti’s children.
Jeremiah 29:10-14: This is what the Lord says: “You will be in [Reed City] for [twenty-five years]. But then I will come and do for you all the good things I have promised, and I will bring you home again. For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. In this days when you pray, I will listen. If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me. I will be found by you,” says the Lord. I will end your captivity and restore your fortunes. I will gather you out of the nations where I sent you and will bring you home again to your own land.”
We can all be partners with Kelby as he provides desperately-needed medical care for children in Haiti. We have opportunity to support Kelby (and ultimately Kelby’s Kids in Haiti) through:
- prayer (the most powerful tool in the hands of the Lord)
- financial support (Kelby is fully reliant on the support of all of us)
- sharing the story of Kelby’s work in Haiti (share Facebook and blog posts with others)
As 2016 ends, it’s not too late to support Kelby for the first time, or with an additional year end gift. All contributions that are postmarked on or before 12/31/16, are recorded for 2016 tax credit.
Please consider a year-end gift to support Kelby’s Kids, Inc and provide for the children of Haiti.
Until no child dies.

A little housekeeping about making donations.
PayPal is a convenient way to give automated monthly gifts. There is a fee for Kelby's Kids to accept a PayPal account but we gladly pay the fee since it makes it more convenient for you to give.
Stripe is another way to give through the website. They, too, charge Kelby's Kids a fee. It's a bit more than PayPal (so, if it makes no difference to you, please select the Paypal option).
Sending a check by mail through your bank is free to you and Kelby's Kids. Please contact your bank or credit union about setting up the free BillPay service to mail a check to Kelby's Kids, P.O. Box 57, Reed City, Mich. 49677-0057.
Please contact me (Barb) if you have questions about giving through electronic transfer or about any of the giving options listed above.
