Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them,for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these”! Throughout the gospels, Jesus revealed His heart for children the intention that we would with utmost importance love and care for kids. With this vision in mind, HOPE continues to creatively expand our ministries with children.
On average 450 children attend our weekly Hope for the Island Kids Ministry.
Three outreaches exist within the village of Burgos and five within the surrounding villages of BayBay, Bitaug, Garcia, Allegria and Sto. Nino. As these precious children respond to the message of the gospel, homes and communities are in turn being transformed! It blesses our hearts to see this ministry go full circle. As the children grow in age and maturity, they take the initiative by assisting our staff in reaching out to other kids who are also in need. That is discipleship with lasting fruit! Weekly activities include: Bible lessons, songs, crafts, games and of course a healthy meal.
