The Charles Mully Movie

In Kenya, 10,500 orphaned children have become part of the biggest family in the world. In the New Testament, Jesus tells a young man to sell all of his possessions and give it to the poor. The young man could not do it. But when Charles Mully was confronted with that same story, he did!

The Charles Mully movie releasing in October, titled "Mully," tells the true story of a six-year-old abandoned by his family to the streets of Kenya, and of his rise to wealth and power as a businessman. After Charles visited the slums of Kenya in 1986, he gave all his wealth to establish “The Charles Mully Family.” He has become a “father to the fatherless”—a reference to Psalm 68:5: “Father of the fatherless and protector of widows is God . . .”
