Vacation Bible School programs across India
Serve India Ministries is mobilizing to reach 200,000 villages with the gospel over the next 15 years. In all these villages that do not yet have a vibrant church, offering children a fun 2-day VBS program helps build relationships with families and opens doors for ongoing ministry to take place. Most, if not all of these kids, will be hearing the gospel for the first time.
Your gifts will help provide VBS for 50,000 children across India.
Youth Sports Ministries in Jordan
For the past years there has been a growing and effective sports ministry among the children and youth of Syrian refugees being served by the Mafraq church. More recently they have started to include bible stories as part of their character-building activities. Also, families are now allowing their daughters to join women’s teams which is a sign of great trust in this middle eastern context. The church has had to rent fields up until now to host these weekly activities. They are at a point where owning their own soccer field would enable them to do much more with this ministry.
Your gifts will help the church purchase land and building their own sports field.
Clean Water in Senegal
Matt & Julie Walsh with Friends in Action are leading a well-drilling ministry across rural Senegal. By working in tandem with Senegalese pastors who have a desire to start churches in unreached villages, Matt and his team provide an entry point by drilling wells to provide clean water while the pastor gathers the villagers in the evenings to explain how Jesus is the Living water. A maintenance hangar needs to be built to protect the drilling rig during the rainy season.
Your gifts will help complete the roof and pour the concrete slab.
Gospel media for children in Burkina Faso
Kids of Hope is a ministry that reaches out to Fulani boys and girls who are forced to beg on the streets of the capital city Ouagadougou. Kate Royal and her team provide weekly activities that include games, bible teaching, crafts, a place to wash and a meal. The kids are learning how to read and write as part of their bible lessons, which has enabled many of them to start attending school. Kate would like to be able to show the kids good Christian programming, the Jesus Film, and many other appropriate videos.
Your gifts will help provide a portable projector, screen, and small solar power unit.
