God So Loves The Little Children

A Christmas gift for a young boyWhen this little Filipino boy received a gift last Christmas, he was not sure at first what to do with it. No one had ever before given him a gift for any reason. It did not take long for him to figure out what to do and he was thrilled.

You can bless a child like this one in the Philippines this Christmas and make it special. One small gift, some good food and some loving care will make a big difference to a child.

Without us there will be no gifts or special food for them this Christmas. If many of us give even a little, then many children will be blessed. What better way is there to honor Jesus than to bless poor children at Christmas?

It Is Never Too Early To Start Giving for Christmas

Christmas for the children in the PhilippinesWhat will Christmas be like for these children in the Philippines? You can help make sure it will be special. One small gift, some good food and some loving care will make a big difference in their lives.

These are some of the hundreds of children we want to bless this year at Christmas. The children in this photo are from very poor families who live as squatters at a garbage dumpsite where they scavenge through trash for daily survival. There will be no gifts or special food for them this Christmas unless someone steps up to help. If many of us give even a little, then many children will be blessed.

The FCM 3-Fold Ministry

2016-09-12-key-elements-of-fcm

Children and youth sponsored by Fullness in Christ Ministries (FCM) ministry partners are pictured here at their regular Sunday afternoon discipleship class. It is a very important part of their preparation for the future.

 

Teaching and discipleship are key elements in FCM sponsorships. Every sponsored child or youth is assigned to a pastor who is responsible for teaching that child how to victoriously live the Christian life. These young people will one day be leaders in their communities and some even in the nation. Teaching them Christian character values and how to daily follow Jesus as Lord is as important as the education and the nutrition they receive.

 

When a child is sponsored, the ministry to them is 3-fold. They receive ministry in body (nutrition), soul (education) and spirit (Christian teaching and discipleship).

 

Your gifts to FCM are changing lives in the Philippines. Over 900 very poor and disadvantaged children and youth are being educated and discipled. Without your help, the children would not be able to finish school. Some would be forced to dig through trash for survival. Some would be recruited by terrorists. Others would become victims of trafficking. Some would die young because of the unhealthy lifestyle.

 

Instead these disadvantaged children, like those pictured above, are being taught to follow Jesus in salvation and being educated to become teachers, nurses, business owners, soldiers and seamen. Some even desire to become lawyers and doctors. All these dreams would be impossible without your help.

 

Thank you for helping to change these young lives. You may never know the full impact every dollar you send has on them. But you can be sure it makes a difference. You can change a life by sponsoring him or her to get an education or by helping with food to supplement a very meager diet. For more information go to the FCM website at www.fullnessinchristministries.org.

The FCM Food For Learning Program

FCM Food for Learning Feeding Program

Your gifts to Fullness in Christ Ministries (FCM) Food For Learning Program help to provide food for undernourished children in the Philippines, like the children in the picture to the left. These children live at a garbage dumpsite. They are happy if they get one good meal a day. Some of them have said they drink a lot of water at night so their stomachs feel full, and then they can get to sleep.

 

In addition to providing supplemental nutrition to FCM’s 900 sponsored children, extra food is given to siblings and hundreds more children who never have enough to eat at home. It often seems like there is more need than provision. Your gifts are such a blessing to the little ones.

 

You may not be able to physically go to the Philippines and give food to the hundreds of hungry undernourished children, but if you give even a small amount and combine it with others who give a little, together we can make a big difference for hundreds of poor children. To learn more about the Food For Learning Program, click here. We have options for one-time and recurring donations.

 

Maybe you are not at a place where you can commit to sponsor a child. Any amount you can send to help with food for the children will be a blessing to them and to you. Many of the children only get to eat one small meal a day. Donate to the Food For Learning Program today by going to this link.

 

If God speaks to you about making a difference for a child, you can sign up to become a sponsor at the FCM web site at FullnessInChristMinistries.org

Help FCM Break The Cycle of Poverty

Children waiting at the dumpsite for foodThese children, in the picture to the left, live in terrible conditions at a garbage dumpsite in the Philippines. Their playground is piles and piles of trash and garbage. Their homes are scrap wood or cardboard or sometimes sacks or old discarded tarps and other materials gathered from the trash. Many of them work with their parents to sort through the dumped trash, looking for items they can use or sell. They almost never have enough to eat. Some of them tell us they drink a lot of water at night because it fills the stomach when they have no food to eat.

Unless the children who are this poor are sponsored or assisted in some other way, they don’t go to school because their parents don’t have money to buy uniforms and school supplies and pay numerous other required fees. So the cycle of poverty continues as the children grow up uneducated and without work skills.

That cycle of poverty and lack of education can be broken. When a child is sponsored by donors, through Fullness in Christ Ministries, it sets into motion many changes. The children go to school and get supplemental nutrition. The sponsorship opens a door to evangelize to the entire family. It is common for entire households to be saved and baptized and discipled together. Hope rises as the children and their families anticipate a better future.

What a joy to be part of God’s plan to rescue children from poverty and help them prepare for the future. Follow this link to the Fullness in Christ Ministries website, to learn more about how you can sponsor the education of a child and help transform that child’s life.

Maybe you are not at a place where you can commit to sponsor a child. The pastor who ministers to the families, in the garbage dump shown in the picture above, has 17 feeding centers across the area where he feeds and ministers to hundreds of very poor children. Any amount you can send to help with Food For The Children will be a blessing to them and to you. Many of the children only get to eat one small meal a day.

Pray about it. If God speaks to you about making a difference for a child, you can sign up to become a sponsor at Fullness in Christ Ministries‘ web site at FullnessInChristMinistries.org.

Why FCM Sponsorship Is So Important

Kathy was blessed by this group of sponsored young people (shown in the picture below) who are in high school and college. Most of them have been sponsored through Fullness In Christ Ministries (FCM) since elementary school. At the time that they were sponsored, they were hungry and dirty, living (or surviving) in garbage dumps. They were so poor they could not go to school. Just look at them now! We are so proud of them.
2016-03-07 Kathy and youthThe time came when they were sponsored and life changed for them. They went to school. They ate better food and more often so they were healthier and more alert in school. They could now dream of a future that did not include scavenging through trash for things to sell or use. Today they are preparing to be teachers, computer technicians, nurses and caretakers and other professionals. We are VERY proud of them.

All this was made possible by gifts from Partners, Sponsors and Friends who opened their hearts to help these young people. 

There are many children at the garbage site who still cannot go to school because they are unable to pay the required fees and buy the necessary school supplies and clothing. If they don’t get an education, they will likely repeat the cycle and continue to live as trash scavengers. Sponsors provide funds for education, nutrition, pastoral care and more. Lives are changed by sponsors.

It is truly amazing what even a small investment of $30 a month per child will make. Pray about it. If God speaks to you about making a difference for a child, you can sign up to become a sponsor at Fullness in Christ Ministries’ web site at FullnessInChristMinistries.org.
