At Risk Children
Most of the children that our ministries work with are at great risk spiritually, physically and emotionally. Whether ministering to orphans left homeless by the AIDS epidemic in Malawi, or sheltering and caring for abused and at-risk children in Guyana, our missionaries provide Godly instruction and material care.
One of our church members recently joined a ministry in Thailand to minister to victims of sex trafficking. Another church member joined a ministry in the Middle East working with street children.
A couple from our church was sent out to Arizona some years ago where they work with At-Risk children and youth on a Navajo Reservation.
We are committed to investing in the future of the children and youth in our ministries and one of the best ways to do this is through education. Education in the third world is usually out of reach for poor families that cannot afford to buy books or supplies.
Through our ministries in Haiti, more than a hundred children are being sponsored for their education costs. In addition, the children residing at A Sanctuary in Guyana receive schooling in an accredited on-site school.
Sometimes, it’s necessary to feed a desperate person a fish to live. Other times, we want to help others to fish for themselves. Some of our ministries have micro-enterprise initiatives to provide micro-loans to families that want to start a small business. This enables the recipient to retain their dignity as they no longer are reliant upon a simple handout, but they can earn money for themselves. They are just in need of capital and business training.
Shelter & Housing
In some of our locations, particularly in Haiti after the earthquake, we have provided emergency shelters such as tents and other temporary housing as well as rebuilding of homes or helping with rental costs to enable families to have a roof over their head while they get on their feet.
