Poor children faced pressure to sell trinkets rather than attend school, and local missionaries encouraged them to stay in class. Every day of the week, children also received nutritious lunches at the local ministry’s feeding center, giving them the health they needed to excel in class and helping workers sow the seeds of God’s kingdom. The lunch is often the only meal of the day for one 10-year-old boy, who said, “Thank you for providing me with this food, you love me more than my mom and dad since they never come to visit me, and they don’t buy my food.” Donations of $35 or $70 are sought to feed hungry children. Pray the Lord will fulfill His purposes for each child.
“This is the bread that came down from heaven. Your ancestors ate manna and died, but whoever feeds on this bread will live forever.” (John 6:58)
