We receive calls from mothers, grandmothers, and school counselors all the time. It is no surprise that children are in need all across this island, especially now. Our mission is to expose fatherless and orphaned children to the love and way of the Heavenly Father by matching each child with a Christian mentor. Mentors are missionaries to a mission field of one. Every mentor commits to meet with their assigned child for two to four hours a week for a minimum of one year. During those small but regular blocks of time, each child first experiences the Father’s love, and then he or she is exposed to His good news. Now here is where you come in.
The Virus has increased the need and decreased our ability to share this need with the body of Christ. We usually speak in 60 churches a year. We currently have over 100 boys and 30 girls waiting for a Christian to say yes to His call. So here are four things you can do to help us with this challenge.
Please choose one.
1. Ask God if He is calling you to mentor a child.
2. If you are a married woman, and you respect your husband’s walk, ask him to pray about being a mentor. As you can see, the need for men is enormous.
3. You can ask your church to put up one of our 45-second videos next time the church service is aired online. Call the office, at 631-242-5101 and we will send it to the church’s video person.
4. You can call our office and request an email that you can forward to any Christian who you believe would make a great mentor.
The email will have a short video that will share the call.
