Donate For The Orphanage
ALL IS NOT LOST!
Although it may seem like I am painting a very gloomy picture of of our beloved Panama, we have worked very hard to be a beacon in the midst of this darkness.
For several years now, with God’s help and the faithful generosity of other supporting churches and organizations, our little church in David has been able to shine the light of hope and love of Christ by feeding as many of these kids as possible, on a daily basis, through the use of four separate area feeding centers.
In addition to our feeding centers, about ten years, in an effort to provide safe haven for some of Panama’s children who, for a variety of reasons, do not have a safe or healthy home environment, we opened a children's home or orphanage that we named Hogar de Niñas y Niños Amados (Home of Beloved Girls and Boys).
Working with various agencies of the Panamanian government, over the years we have been able to identify many “at risk” children and provide them with a safe place to live, learn and grow without fear of what trouble tomorrow might bring.
Today, we provide a safe and loving home environment for an average of 30-35 children. This includes food, clothing, formal classroom education, recreation, health/medical care and biblically based spiritual guidance at an average monthly cost of only $200 per child.
While our ultimate goal is to be able to eventually expand this ministry to the point that we can provide this kind of love and support to approximately 100 children, for now, our immediate prayer is to effectively maintain that with which God has already blessed us.
OUR MOST RECENT CHALLENGE
Sadly, with the national and international economy being as it is today, more and more charitable organizations are vying for fewer and fewer available donor dollars. Consequently, over time we have gradually lost a significant portion of our outside financial support.
Unfortunately, ours is not a financially wealthy congregation. The basic financial needs of this type of ministry, as conservative as they may be, are quite significant. Therefore, our continued success is very dependent upon outside contributions and donations.
If we are forced to stop or even suspend the food distribution at the feeding centers… or worse yet, close the doors of our children’s home, every single one of these precious children will still need to be fed and many will still need a safe place to lie down at night.
GOD IS ABLE!
This is where we need your help. We know that Our God is able and we also know that God's people are faithful. I believe that we can all agree that no child should have to worry about having a safe place to sleep or go to bed hungry.
For $10,000 per month, we are currently able to feed approximately 160 children daily through our four feeding centers AND provide a safe Christian home environment for an additional 30-35 children.
While no individual donation is too small, for a monthly donation of $25, you could have the personal satisfaction of knowing that at least one child will be blessed with one healthy meal per day.’
For as little as $200 per month for 12 months or a one-time contribution of $2400 you, your company or your Sunday School class or group of co-workers can help ensure that at least one child has a safe and loving place in which to live, learn and grow for an entire year.
Won't you please, prayerfully consider what God would have you do to help us care for these children.
Additionally, if your church, Sunday School class or youth group is interested in sending a summer mission team to personally help us spread some love among the children of Panama, or you personally are interested in serving as a volunteer, please feel free to contact us through our website at www.mannapanama.com for more information or to make arrangements for a visit.
