Description

Hope for the Hopeless continues the journey of Charles Mulli started in the best-selling biography Father to the Fatherless. His journey of faith challenges him to trust Christ in desperate times, confront evil forces and believe God for even greater miracles of healing and deliverance. It takes him into the heart of the most devastating event in recent Kenyan history, where in the wake of the post-election violence that shook Kenya to its core, while the nation stands in fear and desperation, Mulli risks everything to follow the call of Christ on his life to bring hope to the hopeless. You will be greatly moved by these amazing true stories. Each tells of a tragedy turned miraculous. Whether the young girl evicted by her family and left to survive in a slum or the boy whose parents passed away, leaving him destitute on the street, all appear hopeless cases until they encounter Charles Mulli and discover a new life they could not have imagined.

I am always amazed how a writer can communicate the essence of his story. In his latest book, Paul Boge has captured why and how MCF has been successful in its mission of rescuing children and providing a meaningful future for them. Charles Mulli, the founder, has a heart for abandoned children because he himself was left alone by his family to fend for himself on the streets of Eldoret. Paul makes it clear that Mulli is 100 percent dependent on God to fulfill his dream to care for the homeless. Mulli says, “It came down to doing three simple things consistently: praying, reading the Bible and serving.”
Your heart will be moved as you read the incredible true stories of those rescued, and you will be amazed at how Mulli steps over the edge, knowing that only God can provide. Your faith will be strengthened and surely you will realize that God hears the cry of the helpless but it needs people like Mulli, who are fully convicted and convinced that they can make a difference in peoples’ lives.
I recommend this book, and I know you will see poverty from a completely different perspective and you will be thankful for men like Mulli and his family and the people that support this wonderful ministry.

This is a treasure of truth and a testimony that is invaluable to all who desire to touch the young and helpless living on the streets. Dr. Mulli’s dedication and passion for Christ, as well as his vision to bring hope to the suffering, is a beacon in a world that is increasingly centred on itself. The book reveals a very humble and selfless man, whose God is big and able to touch even the untouchables. May God cause each one who reads this book to hear the painful cry of the suffering in our communities.

Hope for the Hopeless is a compelling and inspirational story. It will touch the hearts of those who read it and open the eyes of those who doubt that survivors of horrendous crimes can be renewed and grow to love life again. It’s a story of the courageous Charles Mulli and the impact of his faith on countless orphans in Kenya. Paul Boge’s immense talent is reflected in its pages.

Mulli is the George Muller of Africa, called by God to give up his wealth, prosperity and success and invest into the lives of orphans. It is a journey of faith, hope and surrender, as Mulli trusts in God for direction, strength and providence. And God does not disappoint. He miraculously supplies for this work and countless times stretches His hand of healing upon Mulli and his big family. God shows up right on time, not one minute early or one minute late. He keeps right on schedule. What faithfulness!
Pure religion, the Bible says, is visiting the widows and feeding the orphans. Mulli has exemplified pure religion by ministering hope to the hopeless and being a father to the fatherless. I have no doubt that this book will not only inspire you but also challenge you to share the love of Christ even to the least of this world. Mulli not only facilitates the provision of food, clothing, shelter and education for the children, but also ministers to their spiritual lives through the life-changing power of the Gospel message and in some cases, even to the children’s families, like the case of Anika. For sure, there is more to life than a bag of riches, a big mansion and a fleet of cars. Only one thing counts, making a difference, and Mulli has made his. Will you?

A remarkable story of determination, passion and faith, Hope for the Hopeless is an enduring tribute to the continuing journey of Charles Mulli and his life’s work of rescuing African children from the darkest depths of poverty and neglect. Mulli uses his enduring faith to provide the dignity of food, education and love to thousands of abandoned children and provide them with a future filled with hope. He is an inspiration to those who might be searching for a way to make the world a better place but question whether one person can make a difference.

The love of Christ compels us to do what we never thought we could do, and go to the heights we never thought we could reach. Precious is the name of Jesus. This is a powerful testimony. May God grant you grace and favour.

Senior Pastor, Nairobi Pentecostal Church Valley Road, Kenya
A remarkable leader within a remarkable ministry with a remarkable story. Hope for the Hopeless produces humility of the heart and yet great encouragement for the soul. It powerfully shines the hope of Christ within an otherwise dark and painful world. I have been personally challenged and admonished by the life of Charles Mulli and MCF and that has only been strengthened by the reading of this book. If you desire a wake-up call to the reality of life, sacrifice and love, then this book is for you. Truly inspiring, heartbreaking and yet hope filling.

My life is committed to educating students and encouraging them to think beyond themselves. Hope for the Hopeless is proof that one person can make a difference in the world, and Mr. Mulli is a real example of someone not just fighting against injustice, but caring for the very children he is fighting for. My hope is that we can all be that courageous and make a difference in the world around us.

I found Hope for the Hopeless to be an eye-opening revelation of the dreadful effects that poverty, alcohol abuse, HIV/AIDS and drugs have on so many children in Africa. This poverty and suffering is so widespread, to a degree not seen in Europe. This book reveals the profound spiritual and practical transformation that the love of God has brought to so many thousands of children through the devotion of Charles Mulli and his family. Hope for the Hopeless is a compelling read!
David Howes
Former East Africa Representative, Hilfe für Brüder (Help for Brethren)
Hope for the Hopeless is a sobering reminder of the street children’s daily plight in Kenya and unfortunately so many other parts of the world. What makes this story so intriguing is how Charles Mulli has turned his remarkable leadership skills into the services of God, with the purpose of addressing poverty, violence negligence, abuse and injustice among the most vulnerable segment of the children’s population, namely the thousands of children that have been left to their own devices on the streets and slums of Kenya. The Charles Mulli story is first and foremost a story of hope, devotion and faith in God with the firm conviction that no child should be left to poverty, cruelty and self-destruction, but instead be put on a path to self-realization and development of their full potential in an environment free of prejudice, violence and discrimination. May Mulli’s publication Hope for the Hopeless inspire, but also provide impulses and ideas to others as to how we can lift all children of the world out of destitution and misery.
Kirsten Engebak

Hope for the Hopeless is that rare sequel that is even more powerful and inspirational than its predecessor, Father to the Fatherless . I have known Charles Mulli personally since 2009 and my wife and I have been to MCF numerous times. The book is a true representation of what one finds there
