Angela is an active and fun-loving child living with her family in the Philippines. Her father is a builder but he has a hard time finding work. He also has a medical condition that makes his physical job even more difficult. Their house is near a mountain road making it dangerous for the children to play outside. During the summer they can get their water from nearby streams, but throughout most of the year, they have to pay for water to be delivered. Angela loves sewing clothes for her dolls and she has fun learning to cook. At AMG’s local child and youth development center, Angela will not only learn about her loving Savior, but she will also receive nutritious meals, an education, and opportunities that she would otherwise not have. Thank you for making a life-changing impact in this little girl’s life.
Mount Moriah Child Development Center
The Mount Moriah Child Development Center is greatly impacting children and their families for Christ. Nutritious food, medicine, educational assistance, school uniforms and supplies are given to the children at the center. The center staff show the love of God to the children under their care by helping them with homework, providing life skills training, and encouraging them in their faith. Through regular Bible studies, devotions and Sunday School the children are hearing the Gospel and their lives are being touched by the Word of God.
The Philippines is a country that consists of over 7,000 islands in Southeast Asia. It has many active volcanoes and its location and torrential rainfall means that several areas are prone to flooding, typhoons and cyclones. The majority of the population is Roman Catholic, but some people are superstitious and still practice animism. Poverty, alcoholism and widespread drug use plagues their communities. This has led to broken families and abandoned children. There are few consistent job opportunities as well, making it difficult for parents to provide for their families.
