Christmas for Street Kids, Squatters & Mountain Tribal People
Dear FMI Partners and Supporters,
"LOVE IN ACTION AT CHRISTMAS" PROJECTS
We believe the Lord has commissioned us to do more for Him this Christmas time in reaching out to the poorest members of our community and to the 45 indigenous Mangyan pastors and church leaders in the island of Mindoro. In response we have put together projects that will fulfill this mission. Please read below...
Everyone is welcome to be part in making these Christmas Projects happen in response to Isaiah 58:7, "Is it not to share your bread with the hungry, And that you bring to your house the poor who are cast out; When you see the naked, that you cover him, And not hide yourself from your own flesh?"

We're praying for financial provision for all of these projects this week. Pray with us. Overall Budget Estimate: $1,180
Pray also that blessed people in the Philippines will donate clothes, toys, canned goods, noodles, 50g coffee packs, packs of 1 kilo brown sugar, snacks and treats for the kids.
We are not asking anyone for financial donation because we believe it is for God to put people together to accomplish His plans. We only as you to pray that whoever God quickens will hear and obey so that these projects can come to pass. Together we can accomplish our call to Isaiah 58:7 "Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit" says the Lord of Hosts." Zechariah 4:6
