Hungry children, in the photo above, at the garbage dump site in the Philippines, come bringing cups, bowls, plates, discarded ice cream cartons and anything else that will hold some food. They come dirty and in ragged clothing. They come out of the dusty haze from where they live among the garbage heaps. They come hoping there is enough for them all, but fearing there is not.
Rudy Esic, our Fullness in Christ Ministries (FCM) related pastor who ministers to these children in the Philippines, wrote a couple months ago and asked if it was “OK” for him to use some of the ministry money we send each month. He wanted to feed the “children who are not sponsored by FCM” in this garbage site because, as he said, “they are so hungry.” Of course, the answer is “YES.” As long as, and as much as we can, we will care for the children God places before us. A big THANK YOU to the Partners, Sponsors and Friends who give so that we can put food in the empty cups of the children.
Your help is a vital part of God’s plan to give very poor children, like these, hope for a better future than would be possible without your help. In recent months, we have had to reduce the amount sent to our pastors for feeding the children. It has been a real challenge for them to find ways to provide the food and supplements the children need. You can be part of giving hope to children in the Philippines. Your gifts change young lives forever. We need people to give to feed hungry children. We need more sponsors to send uneducated children to school.
