Memories of our Childhood

What are the memories you hold of your childhood? For as many people as we might ask that question, we also might receive the same quantity in different answers.




No one has an identical set of experiences, and to a certain extent that’s good. Some might remember joy and laughter; family involvements that when recalled, fills them with warmth. On the other hand some might barely remember their childhood, having blocked out memories difficult to deal with. Most likely, people’s experiences are somewhere in between, with both good and bad in different levels somehow synthesized into a general sense of well-being or the lack of it.

However, in the west our life experiences generally don’t rise to the level of harshness and severity as those of the children in developing nations.

A Growing Crisis


There is a crisis of increasing proportions in the world, the plight of at-risk children. Extreme poverty, abuse, human trafficking, hunger, famine, disease, and the day to day struggle for survival are far from uncommon.

It is estimated that of the nearly 60 million people that parish each year, over 10 percent of them are children.

Many children in Africa have lost either one or both parents due to HIV/aids or war. Of these a large percentage are themselves HIV positive.

What Risen Scepter is Doing


RSMI is reaching out to vulnerable children with a multi-focused approach to transform lives and increase the quality of their existence. Whether through our Schools and Orphans initiative or the One Child at a Time Program, Risen Scepter is touching these young lives.


Along with this, we are endeavoring to supply clean drinking water, developing school feeding programs, and support for school teachers, that the children might have a consistent educational experience.

Simple hygiene education along with training of participating family members is essential.  If guardians or extended family are involved, they are incorporated into the process, being encouraged to learn parenting skills, nutritional training, and conflict resolution. These tools are also highly important to bring stability and wholeness to the family unit. And of course, most importantly, spiritual nourishment and biblical training for a well-rounded approach is strongly emphasized.

Beginning with our two primary programs RSMI reaches out to bring comprehensive wholeness and healing to the lives of children in the developing world.
