The Brand New FTC Girls Dorm is COMPLETE!
After many months of raising funds and extraordinary hard work from our construction crew, we are finished with our very first permanent FTC girls boarding home. Comfortably holding 18 children plus staff, our girls now live in a much better living environment where they can continue their education, grow more as a family together, and grow more in the Lord. All of the girls are now smiling ear-to-ear in their new home. Because of your donations, we are able to immediately start building the boys boarding home. They can't wait to get in there! To each of you who contributed in this project, all of Frontline thanks YOU! We could not have done this without you and pray God's greatest blessings on you.
Kids Street Ministry
Every Tuesday night, we head out to the streets of San Pablo City to hang out, love on, and feed the children who live there. We are so happy to see this ministry continuing to grow. Each week, we have different numbers, one week we were able to give out 53 portions of soup and three larger family sized portions! Some went to our regular street children and adults and others went to a group of people called Bajau that are very hard to reach out to. We rejoice that God opened the doors to help them too.
The street children and their poverty stricken families have so many needs. Many walk shoeless and wear clothes that are dirty and often five times their size. Its common to see them covered in dirt, suffering from skin infections, and scratching their heads due to lice.
We are actively pursuing the reopening of a City Center for these needy children. This will be a safe place where they can come on a daily basis and have a nutritious meal, get cleaned up, have simple educational input, devotions, and rest.
Not all children are able to join our full time FTC program, so we see this vision as a way to continue to reach out. The City Center will aid us in building stronger relationships with each of the kids and their families. It will also help us to provide necessities like clothes and shoes, lice shampoo, medicines, etc. Most importantly, it will help us with our main goal which is to meet their spiritual needs and to nurture a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
We would like to provide more meals for these kids who are living on the streets and we are praying how to help these families with long-term goals. We know with God all things are possible, and although the kids are on the streets now, we believe they don't have to always be there. We want to bring them hope, and most importantly give them an opportunity to know Jesus. The slogan for Face the Children is offering “An Opportunity for Life." We hope that we can continue this in every way that we can.
