Samaritana Children – Metro Manila, Philippines -Your gifts had helped children of sexually exploited women through our partnership with Samaritana Ministries. Last December at the MEANS sponsored Christmas party, each child received a brand new back pack filled with school supplies, tooth paste, tooth brush, bath soap, and a face towel. The party was held at a park where they had a Christmas program and afterwards, the kids enjoyed swimming in the park’s pool. 

Students to attend Bible Camp MEANS will sponsor 15 high school students from Good Shepherd Orphanage and Academy, Guimaras Island, Iloilo, Philippines, to attend a week long IVCF Philippines camp this summer. The students are from indigent families of farmers and orphans. Thanks to our generous donors who made this project possible. The students will receive training in basic Christian disciplines like having a daily quiet time with God, praying, studying the bible and sharing the good news of Jesus Christ.
