Goal: 5 million meals


With the help of generous Christians, we are providing 5 million meals in one year to some of the poorest of the poor. The year is coming to a close, and we are just about 384,000 meals short of our goal of 5,000,000 meals. We need your help to fill the funding gap. Our ministry partners around the world are depending on us for these meals, which will be distributed through school feeding programs, shipments to disaster and famine victims, nutrition centers, and feeding programs for the elderly, sick, and orphaned. The need is great, but we know that every meals helps:  “It is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that even one of these little ones should perish” (Matthew 18:14).

World hunger 2009


In 2009, the ranks of the world’s hungry reached a record 1 billion — and the number continues to rise. Every six seconds a child dies from hunger-related causes. More than 60 percent of chronically hungry people are women. Poor nutrition causes nearly one in three people to die prematurely or become disabled. In the developing world, 26 percent of children under the age of 5 are moderately to severely underweight. Here’s what you can do: Baptist Soup Kitchen – Philipsburg, St. Maarten (Carribean) Many people have come to St. Maarten looking for work, but instead have found themselves jobless, homeless and hungry. $190 feeds 100 people per week! Read More… Calvary Baptist School Feeding program – Port au Prince, Haiti The 6,600 students who attend the 18 CBC schools would not be able to stay alert and learn were it not for the nutritious school meal they enjoy every day…the only meal most will eat that day. $59,400 run feeding for an entire year! Read More… Christian Home Care program – Kitwe, Zambia Christian laypersons volunteer to bring food, material support and encouragement to almost 100 chronically ill, homebound patients too sick to fend for themselves-many of whom are suffering from T.B. or dying of AIDS. $40 helps one patient for an entire month!

African orphan support – $68/year


Here’s a wonderful opportunity for you to become faithful with a little: The Reencontro Orphans Project in Mozambique provides direct support to more than 7000 orphans and other vulnerable children in Mozambique, Africa. Reencontro is composed of local Christian laypersons and cares for these children, many of whom have lost parents to the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Incredibly enough, $68 provides food, clothing, health care, education or other essentials for a child for approximately one year. Orphans receive food, education, citizenship registration (documentation they need in order to attend school), healthcare, housing, vocational training, income generation projects, and spiritual and psychological counseling. Would you and your worship team be willing to be musical advocates for the Reencontro Orphans Project this fall? If you would present a song during one of your services in September or October, I will provide you brochures, free music, free DVD/audio tracks to support these parentless children in Mozambique. Every single dime raised from your event will go directly to the Reencontro orphans. Call me for details:  1-800-391-8545 ext. 174.

Haitian orphan support: $23.50/month


The World Harvest Children’s Home in Cazeau, Haiti provides food, medicine, and care to 80 orphaned, sick, and handicapped children in Cazeau, Haiti. Here’s the description: Traveling to remote, impoverished villages, founder Miriam Fredericks rescues handicapped, abandoned, and starving children – children so hungry they are unable to walk or even crawl, with little bodies ravaged by TB, malaria or dysentery. Though some are so ill they do not survive the trip back to the orphanage, so far more than 100 children have survived and been carefully, lovingly, nurtured back to health. Gifts contributed to World Harvest Children’s home help Miriam and her staff meet these children’s nutritional and medical needs, and give them a loving, caring place to live. For $23.50 per month or $282 per year, you can provide one child with: Three nutritious daily meals Tuition to attend local public school Proper medical care Bible instruction and education Would you and your worship team be willing to present a song on their behalf? If you could present a song and pass out our brochures during one of your services this fall, every dollar will go to the World Harvest Children’s Home in Haiti. I will happily provide free materials for your music department and information for the congregation on the impact they can have for the orphans in Haiti. Just contact me for details and free music.
