Our senior leaders, Ken Jaeger and Matt Turner, have walked the path of poverty many times in
developing nations, each trip a profound and humbling experience, deepening their resolve that
MorningStar Senior Living play a central role in impacting the world for good.
Earl Bowie and his fledging orphan ministry, Casa Bernabé. On the plane ride home, Ken’s heart was
clenched by the desperation of need he’d witnessed. “I knew I couldn’t turn the page on this. What I saw
insisted on a response.”
The concentrated volunteer efforts ever since have made their loving mark on the orphanage and its
surrounding village. Today, for the 80 children it serves, Casa Bernabé has new dormitories; dining
hall and commercial kitchen; soccer field and basketball court—a miracle of progress made possible
by teams of volunteer workers and donors. Ken and his grown children have led many of these teams
themselves; in 2016, he took 15 leaders from MorningStar’s Home Office.
This ministry of love to the people of Eastern Nicaragua has advanced our mission in ways we couldn’t

Around the globe, nearly 90% of all diseases are caused by poor hygiene, inadequate sanitation, and
unsafe drinking water. Every 60 seconds, a child dies from waterborne illnesses. That’s 1600 kids a day.

Knowing real transformation happens only with local buy-in, Lifewater’s Healthy Village strategy focuses
not just on their delivery of a safe water point, but also on the villagers’ monitored adoption of hygiene
habits in each and every home.

joy when first they see water surging forth from a new well—clear and cold and fresh. This is Answer to
immense prayer. This changes Everything. Learn more at:
