These 3 children live with their father in the garbage dump site of a large city in the Philippines. He is a garbage collector. Emilie, the child in the center, is sponsored. This is her second year to be sponsored and she is so happy to attend school and have everything she needs for her classes. Her parents were also very excited. Her mother was helping prepare and serve food on Saturday mornings.
Then the unthinkable happened. The mother died suddenly. They were devastated. The father said Emilie would have to stay home instead of go to school. She must now care for 3 younger children so he could go to work in order to provide for them. The pastor talked with the father and convinced him that it was important for all the family for Emilie to get an education. He courageously agreed and said he would find someone to care for the children. So Emilie was able to continue in school and she is an honor student with a good future ahead.
She still cares for her younger siblings, including the one shown here in a stroller who is handicapped. The Fullness in Christ Ministries (FCM) mission team currently in the Philippines prayed for the children, especially for healing for little Emilita who does not walk or talk. Will you join us in prayer for this family? For healing, for provision, and for encouragement. It is a lot of responsibility for a 12 year old girl, but Emilie almost always has a smile on her face.
Many children at the garbage dump site still need sponsors and they wait, hope and pray that they will be selected so they can go to school.
Thank you, Partners, Sponsors and Friends for your support that makes it possible to touch these children with the love of God. Pray for them. Your prayers make a difference.
