The Children’s Shelter was founded in December 2008 It sheltered 18 children this past year. At the moment there are 12 children (plus our 4, so 16). The 12 were either sent to us by the government for protection, or their parents placed them here voluntarily because they are unable to support/care for them.

Slide 16:

We thank God for all that He has done for these children and pray that He will expand this ministry in the near future. Here are some pictures of them.

God works in this ministry through people like you . Because of your help , we are able to stay and care for the children and work on these projects! We can never thank enough those who have already helped us and continue to do so. There are many different ways in which you can be part of this ministry. Prayer is first!

Slide 61:

We were very blessed recently in being able to buy almost 10 acres of land!!!! This land will have many uses! This is a small part of that land ->

Slide 62:

Next year the land will be used for planting corn and garbanzo and housing sheep . It is now home to our cows which is great because they used to live in the backyard of the team house!

Slide 63:

The land has no well at the moment but once a well is drilled , planting year round and greenhouses are in the plans. Growing our own food and teaching the children to do so is an important part of their education .

Slide 64:

The last phase of this project includes building more houses to shelter about 15 children each . Each house will have its own house-parents so the children can grow in a family environment .

Slide 65:

A ll of the children are taught at home. Praise God that there are teachers here to help this school year! But we still need teachers for the years to come. (something to pray about!)

Slide 67:

Vacation Bible School is held every year for the children who live in town. They play games, do crafts, sing, learn Bible stories and eat a snack. An average of 80 to 100 kids attend each year.

Slide 68:
