Field Report
From Pete to You

Monday, September 7, 2015

Dear Friend, I spent a lot of my childhood in the Philippines, not far from where we’ve just launched our new Every Child Every Day feeding program—to reach the poorest children in the Tondo slums of Manila. I know it breaks your heart to hear these children are forced to eat what they call pagpag—“dusted-off” food scavenged from the city’s garbage. That’s why I’m so grateful for your support! Together, we’ve started feeding 1,000 of these kids in Tondo—so they can find a full life… as Diana did. She grew…

Q: What challenges did you see people facing on your recent trip to Burkina Faso? A: Burkina Faso is one of Africa’s poorest countries, on the edge of the desert, with lots of sandstorms. Very little rain, very little water. It’s difficult for people to be self-sustaining with enough food. Q: Why do kids and the disabled here especially need our help?

Nepal Earthquake Update: “Who is this God who gives so generously to us in our need?”

Monday, September 7, 2015

“Who is this God who gives so generously to us in our need?” That’s what Nepalese earthquake victims were asking as we distributed the food and aid that you made possible! The earthquake in Nepal on April 25 devastated thousands of people, but you enabled us to distribute food and other essential relief to many heartbroken villagers in May. Your gifts brought the love of Jesus to traumatized villagers still living in tents amid rubble, still grieving the loss of loved ones, still rocked by aftershocks. They were amazed and…

If you’re a child living in Manila’s Tondo slums, your “scavenger hunt” means rummaging through garbage for anything you can sell to survive and any half-eaten food scraps you can eat. But that’s changing! Thanks to you, we’ve just launched our Every Child Every Day feeding program in Tondo, giving 1,000 kids a daily, nutritious meal at school. You’re helping them get an education and hear the gospel… lifting them beyond the scrap heap for a full life in Jesus. As we grow this program, your support will be changing…
