Can You Help Us Reach 1,000 Children Before Rebels and Child Traffickers Do?

I am writing this post on behalf of Fullness In Christ Ministries. This is not a paid post, and, in fact, they do not even know that I'm writing it. 

God has given the leaders of this ministry (Ras and Bev Robinson, along with Kathy Bohlin), a vision to reach 1,000 of the children living in the garbage dumps of the Philippines. 

For $30 a month, you can help them get closer to their goal by sponsoring a child. Sponsoring a child allows him or her to go to school and learn valuable skills, as well as learning about the love of God. It will also give them food for their hungry bellies.

The following is an e-mail sent out by Fullness In Christ Ministries regarding the vision God has given them for these children. Please prayerfully consider being a partner in this ministry by sponsoring a child.

What does God want to do for the children He has given us? What is his promise concerning these little ones? 

"He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap (the garbage dump), to make them sit with the princes, with the princes of His people."  (Psalm 113:7-8)

Raising Children From the Dust to the Palace
With some help now, the future could be very bright for this child.
The Lord said, "I want you to care for 1000 very poor children that I am giving you. I have things I want them to do and they need to be prepared for those things."  Our response - "Yes Lord. We are willing and excited about that assignment." Our next thought was, "Where will we get the estimated $360,000 a year - $30 per month per child?" That is a lot of money" The past year has been a good one, but still that is a lot more money than we have, even if we put everything we have in it.   

We have heard God say we can believe Him to provide for those 1000 extremely poor children and youth. Otherwise, why would He ask us to do it? Can you believe it with us? Last Sunday a lady who was sponsoring 4 children added 4 more for a total of 8. A man who sponsored 15 lost his job and had to quit for a couple of months, but he soon found another job and came back for his 15 and raised his monthly amount.  Would you be willing to join these and others and take on some of the children and teens God wants to give us and who desperately need us. Together, with each one taking some of them, and with God's help, we can change their lives for eternity.

Further, we believe God will use these young people as He raises up a new generation that will be used by Him to transform the nation and affect many throughout the world. In one city, our high school students have been trained as crisis counselors for young children. How exciting to think of how God will use them in the future as well as now. We now have two high school valedictorians in college preparing to impact the world.

Imagine this photo with 1000 children from the garbage dump. That is our assignment.
You can believe that terrorists and rebels seek these young people and recruit them for their violent purposes. That is not God's plan for them. We can reach them first and teach them of God's love. We work now in 22 locations where pastors are reaching children before terrorist and child traffickers and others with evil purposes reach them.

What is God's plan for these young people?  "He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap (the garbage dump), to make them sit with the princes, with the princes of His people."  (Ps 113:7-8)

You can be part of God's plan for one or more of these children or teens. You can be part of God's plan for changing lives and ultimately a nation. Will you join us as we step out in faith to believe God for the funds required to help these kids?  Will you be part of that provision?  We need child sponsors - lots of them. We need those who give to help feed hungry children.

We look forward to hearing from you soon. To make your donation to help the children rise from the dust of poverty and become part of God's Kingdom, go to:

Thank you to all of you who currently sponsor children and who help us feed them, along with many other hungry children. We are so thankful for you!
