The photo above shows some of the Fullness in Christ Ministries (FCM) sponsored children in the Philippines. The children who sent it to you wanted to express their love and thankfulness for all that you have given to help them go to school, to have good food, and to receive new clothes and shoes to wear to school.
Here are recent reports from two FCM sponsored children:
Roland Rey is 11 years old and in 6th grade. He has a bad case of asthma, but believes God will heal him and that he can one day be a seaman, which is his dream. He says God is the best Healer. He has done very well in school since 1st grade, winning honors every year. We invite you to join us in praying for his healing.
Here is a note he sent last month to express his gratitude for his sponsorship:
“Good day and have a blessed day today. Thank you, my dear sponsor, for all the support that you have given to me. Without you, I can’t have new and beautiful things for school. I’m always grateful to the Lord, for He uses you as an instrument to help me come out from poverty. With you, I felt lucky that for everything I need in my studies, you are there behind as one whom I can lean on. You are my second family. I hope and pray that God will give you enough strength and shower more blessings upon you. God bless and thank you so much!”
Keisha is 12 years old and in 6th grade. She has been sponsored since first grade and is a consistent honor student. Last year, she received a certificate of recognition With Honors. She was also awarded with the Honesty Award, Miss Patience Award, Enthusiastic Learner Award, and Best in Attendance. She is thankful to FCM.
Here is a note from her. It will bless you.
“I have been one of the sponsored students with FCM since 1st grade. I have 2 brothers, and I
am the youngest in the family. Since I got sponsored through FCM, me and my mother started to go to church every Sunday. Before, we did not go to church. I did not know about God, or even know how to worship Him. But by hearing and learning the word of God, my faith started to grow. At that time, we were in financial struggles because my father had no permanent job and he did not go to church. I always prayed to the Lord that maybe someday we could go to church with my whole family; and thanks to the Lord that He heard my prayer and it was granted. Now, by the grace of God, my family are all born-again Christians. Thank you, FCM Sponsors, for being the bridge to all the good that has happened in my life. Now, my life has changed physically, financially, and spiritually by God. Me and my family continually serve the Lord. To God be the glory!”
Thank you for praying for the sponsored children. They try so hard to do well and they have much to overcome. Your prayers for them are important.
There are many, many, more children like Roland and Keisha who need sponsors. Sponsorship changes lives, not only for the children, but in many cases for the children’s families as well. Everywhere we go in the Philippines, children come to us, or to their pastors, and ask if they can be “FCM Kids.” You can be part of giving hope to some very poor children in the Philippines.
If you don’t already sponsor a child, pray about it. Ask God if that is something for you to do. It will bless you.
