In the photo, hungry children in the Philippines line up to receive what could be their only meal of the day. These children walk through all the dust and smells and dirty grime of the garbage site, bringing various containers to be filled with food. Our Fullness in Christ Ministries’ (FCM) pastors tell us they see children every day who are so hungry and too often have not had a full meal in days.
Thank you, Partners, Sponsors and Friends for giving to the “Food For Learning” fund. The food served is a good tasting soup (the children really like it) and it has been enhanced with all the vitamins and minerals a child needs for good health. When they get this food even once a week, it makes a visible difference in the life of a child.
As a side note, the older ones who have been sponsored for a while are the ones who prepare and serve the food to the children. It is part of their training to learn about serving others. These youth are sensitive to the needs of the younger children because they were once hungry little children like those they serve. The youth, now in high school and college, are aware of the needs of the younger children. They are very active in ministry to the children as they are taught to give to others as they, too, have received in the past.
These people, in the photo, are some of the hundreds of children that Fullness in Christ Ministries wants to bless at Christmas. The children in this “food line” are from very poor families. There will be no gifts or special food for them unless many of us give to the “Christmas For Children” fund, and make Christmas possible for these children. If many of us give even a little, then many children will be blessed.
If you would like to bless these children at Christmas time this year, and to be part of what God is doing in the Philippines, let me know or check out the Fullness in Christ Ministries website at http://fullnessinchristministries.org. Thank you for all you do!
