I walked through this village this past week and all I could do was cry. I looked at the progress being made in this village just beyond the garbage dump where children have been, for the most part, forgotten. But...not by God, and not by Cups partners. Now in this village stands a nice blue building that houses our Sewing Program and a new Bakery Program. Kids were outside playing and some were gathered in the Sewing Center as we showed up that morning; they were anticipating our arrival.
As I walked through this community twisting between shanties and little lean-to's, I was overwhelmed with the goodness of God. Seeing children running, smiling, and playing, I could only thank God that each day in this village children are reminded that they are loved by God, that they are not hopeless, and God has a plan for their lives.
These messages of hope and truth go out everyday because of our Cups Partners. Every day in every village, children who are in the programs have access to sewing, baking, basketball, discipleship, music classes, and so much more.
What's amazing to me is that when you look at what it costs us to reach these children and provide this daily ministry, it's only 75 cents a day!
I can't even buy a soda from the drink machine for that.
As we continue to serve in each of our villages reaching over 1200 families with hope and truth each day, I am grateful for so many of you who stand with us each month to reach these children. That 75 cents a day, that $23 a month makes a huge eternal, significant impact on the lives of children. We have more and more children that we want to get in to the programs. We have more children that we want to see transformed with the power of the gospel. Will you help?
We can't do it without you. Your partnership is the missing piece to change lives. Thank you for allowing the Creator to use you to impact lives!!
