Our Harvest Now supported Children's Homes give poor and orphaned children of all backgrounds, the opportunity to grow up in a safe and loving home-environment. We believe each child has a special calling and we prayerfully cultivate the gifts God has put in them.
The children who come to our homes were nominated by a local Harvest Now pastor or missionary working in their area. The children are given a bed, clothes and shoes, daily nutritious meals, the opportunity to attend school, medical assistance (as needed), and a chance to hear the Good News of Jesus.
Many of these children come from backgrounds steeped in idol worship and blood sacrifice. These same children are now leading worship, studying the Bible and praying together daily. We are committed to the long-term care of each child entrusted to us.
GIVE HOPE TO POOR & ORPHANED CHILDREN
We support Children’s Homes, community children’s programs, outreaches and VBS groups throughout Asia.
Much time and preparation go into each children’s ministry event that we host. In most locations there are no church buildings. Because of this, many outreaches are held in school classrooms or under large trees outside. We typically have between one and two hundred children attend an outreach event. In each gathering the children learn songs, worship together, dance, draw pictures and have a Bible lesson.
VBS groups usually last around 4-6 hours each day. During or after these classes the children receive snacks and little picture books (tracts) to take home and share with their families. In this way we are building relationships within the communities.
Each year we see thousands of children give their hearts to Jesus across Asia, through all of our sponsored Children’s Ministry events. The local churches are growing as a result, and entire families are turning to Jesus!
