A Ministry for Children

Children everywhere are often the victims of an incorrupt government, war, famine, poverty. In many countries, some children never get a chance to attend school and often work to help support their families.

There are so many children around the world who are being abused and abandoned. It happens in the United States as well. Children are often the victims in a family where the mother may have made bad decisions about their life and maybe the child was unwanted or unexpected. Maybe the father did not want the responsibility of caring and providing for a child. Because of these mistakes which mothers and fathers make, the child suffers.

In India, for example, the children rarely have an opportunity to go to school. India is one of the poorest countries in the entire world. The poorest children will never have an opportunity to go to school unless some benevolent person or organization offers them assistance.

Because the parents need the money, many of India’s children under fourteen years work illegally to help support the families. There are about 12.5 million children under the age of fourteen working illegally. Although there are laws against it, the practice is common and many business owners are never arrested nor prosecuted.

There are children who work in affluent homes caring for other children. They are paid poorly, get very little food, and are often abused. The families call on them to care for the children and they eat separately from the families. Sadly, these children will never have an opportunity to attend school.

God has called some people to serve these children and to act on their behalf in trying to assure that the children get their needs met, that they receive food, shelter, and clothing because he cares very much for them.

Jesus cautioned the disciples against harming the children Matthew 18:5,6 “And whosoever shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.”
