Item description for Father To The Fatherless: The Charles Mulli Story by Paul H. Boge & Bruce Wilkinson...
Six year-old Charles Mulli wakes up in his Kenyan hut to discover his parents have abandoned him. Forced to beg from hut to hut in search of food, Charles scrapes out a meagre existence while trying to come to terms with his abusive past. Then, in a dramatic turn of events, Charles experiences unprecedented success. He finds a wonderful wife, raises a family, excels in business to such a degree that he creates an empire that is noticed by the President of Kenya, and he becomes a pinnacle in the church movement. Charles is on top of the world. And then his world changes. In spite of his tremendous achievements, the plight of the growing street children problem in his country remains strong in Charles' heart. He is unable to shut out their cries, the cries he understands so well, and he realizes he must respond. Father to the Fatherless tells the true story of a man who makes a decision to sell everything he has to help the poor. It's a decision that goes so counter-intuitive to those around him that he is soon completely ostracized, forcing him to carry out what seems like an impossible and unexplainable mission. Now, armed only with his relationship with God, Charles and his family struggle on physical, financial and spiritual fronts to rescue street children from the slums of Kenya and provide them with the hope of new life.

A BOOK FOR THE HEART OF THE RICH WEST Mar 21, 2006
I'm glad a friend gave me *Father to the Fatherless: The Charles Mulli Story* and I'm glad I read it.
I think that the author, Peter Boge, must have listened well to Charles because Peter writes about the Mullis' life and ministry---its tragic experiences and miraculous interventions---with vivid, fast-paced, what's-going-to-happen-next intensity. (I read the book in a day.) If you wonder if the supernatural, "power-encounter" presence of the Spirit is still operative today, the Charles Mulli story is for you.
Orphans in Africa, particularly Kenya, and what can be done and what is being done about and for them is the passion and burden of the book. Charles Mulli is one man, chosen by God, to bring "the kingdom of God" to the orphans. Out of the most desperate beginnings of a young boy's life, God shapes a man with a fierce vision and fiery compassion for "the street children" of Kenya. You will be intrigued by MCF--Mulli Children's Family, the name of Charles' multi-faceted ministry.
Charles Mulli's definition of "prosperity" is worth the price of the book and the time it takes you to read it. It's like no definition you've ever read.
God's grace Dec 21, 2005
This book was outstanding, and i was unable to put it down! God is amazing, that he took a young helpless boy, rejected by people, by his own family and yet was able to empathise with street children and give them the love and encouragment that God had given him. I pray that God will continue to use Charles Mully and his family to reach out and touch the lives of children who feel unloved and rejected. I recommend this book to anyone who needs encouragement themself as this book will inspire a reader to know God at a deeper level.
Awe Inspiring Story of Faith Nov 24, 2005
I could not put this book down. I recommend it to anyone struggling with personal adversity and questioning the faithfulness of God. No rational person would have given Charles Mulli a chance of surviving on the streets of Kenya after abandonment at 6 years old. Empowered by an unshakeable faith and obedient heart, he rose up from the depths of poverty and despair to the heights of leadership and prosperity. More importantly, he never stopped listening to God's call. Once on top of the world, he sacrificed everything he had to bring love and hope to the forgotten. Throw out your self-help books and make room for this one...it is certain to humble and inspire you.
An inspiration and a challenge Nov 17, 2005
Charles Mulli is a man with a mission and with a vision. Understanding what it is to grow up with nothing and then through hard work to create a successful life for himself and his family, he has chosen to help the helpless, to devote his life to rescuing children from the streets of Kenya's cities. After reading "Father to the Fatherless" we can understand what an impact one person can have who chooses the unfailing riches in heaven over temporal wealth on this earth. To have over 700 children calling you "Father", now that is amazing! Mulli's story is told in a captivating way, and I'm sure will be an inspiration and challenge to all readers of this book.
