These young children live in an area of the Philippines where terrorist activity is common. Some of the children we sponsor in this region saw parents murdered by bands of terrorists. It is dangerous enough in parts of that area that we often cannot go there. But God has given us 5 wonderful Filipino pastors there who are reaching entire families with the Gospel of Jesus and His love for them.
Children living in poverty are vulnerable in many ways. One of our little girls, whose parents are blind and disabled, left home one day because she was hungry. She was looking for anyone who would give her some food. She was missing for 2 terribly distressing days. Thankfully, she was found by good people who took her to a safe place. She now lives with friends who care for her and she is doing very well. It was a nice end to a potentially tragic story.
In regions where terrorist bands are active, children, especially boys, are actively recruited with promises of food, new shoes, even guns. The boys interpret it as an opportunity to be someone important.
We have an opportunity to affect the destiny of children in places where terrorism is a part of life. The younger we reach them, the better chance they have to become productive members of the community and friends of freedom. The children of poverty need food and clothing. They also need education. In many developing nations where there is so much extreme poverty, children of the poor do not go to school because their families do not have the money required. The lack of education makes them vulnerable to anyone who promises a better life.
Fullness in Christ Ministries currently sponsors almost 900 poorest of the poor children in the Philippines. Sponsors, working through FCM, change the lives of children forever. This sponsorship provides what those children need to attend school, including school uniforms and shoes and nutrition and food supplements. Every child also has a pastor who cares for them and teaches them how to live as victorious Christians who become productive members of the community or even the nation. They become warriors in the Kingdom of God or they could be recruited by local terrorists and grow up to become enemies of God. Would you help us reach into this darkness with the light of God’s love?
