Apple of His Eyes Ministries, a non-profit organization, came into existence through a woman of God, Sister Adeshola Carew with the full support of her husband Pastor Kolawole Carew. God put in her heart to take care of widows and single parents. She received this vision early in 2015 and the ministry was established on August 8, 2015.
The ministry started with widows and single parents in Canada. In 2016, the Lord ministered to the visionary that the ministry should reach out to those who are in need according to 1 Timothy 5:3 & 5. "Give proper recognition to those widows who are really in need...The widow who is really in need and left all alone puts her hope in God and continues night and day to pray and to ask God for help.
Considering the socio-economic status in African countries, this vision was expanded to Africa where we can support those indicated in the Bible verses above. We serve everybody within our capacity. We serve both Christians and non-Christians. Currently, we are reaching out to four countries - Canada and three African countries - Nigeria, Cameroon, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Most of the funding comes from co-coordinators and donations from RCCG members and friends from the community. We need your support both financially and spiritually to serve all these people. If you want to know more about our projects in these countries please contact us.
Thank you and God bless you as you support this ministry.
We hope to make a difference one life at a time for the poorest of the poor - widows, widowers, and single parents.
Our vision statements are as follows:
To inspire and empower widows, widowers, and single parents in overcoming the challenges of single parenting.
To assist in providing financial and non-financial support to the group as their need may be.
Reach them with the gospel of Jesus Christ
HOW WE OPERATE.
No middle person and no administrative fees
We are not sponsored by or connected with any government. We are just a group of people helping others
Our workers are volunteers who have contributed their own money to the ministry and some are widows themselves
We seek to work with people in their own language, through interpreters if necessary, with local representatives the widows can understand and relate to
We select people to help based on the need and resources available. We often provide farming tools, seeds, and other resources to help them stand on their own as the widows need more than a one-time monetary gift.
