Mustard Seed House is a Christian ministry that provides care and support for families in Kenya with children who are sick
Patients traveling from long distances to receive specialized care can take up to six trips to the hospital. Hence, accommodation is a continual concern. The lack of accommodation leaves many impoverished families with tough choices – travel home, rely on well-wishers, sleep outside, on the floor of a church, or in vulnerable situations.
Most families of patients can not afford to pay for local lodging and feel very frustrated. Mustard Seed House allows us to serve and share the gospel with Faith Aid beneficiaries and other patients arriving at the hospital with no place to stay.

Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.Matthew 17:20
