Rescuing One Sheep At a Time – WME Outreach to Children “Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones…For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost. How think ye? If a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray? And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray. Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.”
–Matthew 18:10-14 Dear WME Partners and Supporters,
I can hear young voices sweetly singing during church services attended over the years: “Little ones to Him belong; they are weak, but He is strong. Yes, Jesus loves me…” The lyrics are so simple, but the truth they tell is profound.
From Creation until now, each of us has been formed in the image of God. Every single life is precious in His sight. So precious, in fact, the Good Shepherd of our souls said He would leave the ninety-nine sheep who are securely under His care to go seek and save the one sheep that has gone astray. It is not God’s will that any of these little ones should perish.
In the 1950’s, World Missionary Evangelism’s outreach started with the care of several poor, orphaned children in India. Accepting the challenge to care for children no one else wanted became the foundation for WME’s Child Sponsorship Program. And six decades later, outreach to children remains at the forefront of WME’s work.
WHAT IS CHILD SPONSORSHIP ABOUT? IT’S THE MIGHTY GRACE OFGOD EXTENDED BY BELIEVERS TO RESCUE A YOUNG LIFE IN JEOPARDY. For the many children who would have been condemned to live in a world filled with violence, hunger, illiteracy, sickness, and even death, Child Sponsorship is a life-saving mission that leads to a better future. It is an opportunity to grow up, to learn, to laugh, and to thrive. But more than anything, it is an open door for abused and forgotten children to learn about the Good Shepherd who loved them so much He willingly laid down His life for them.
They wander looking for food and shelter, and they wonder if anyone will help.
There are so many children who need our help. There are those wondering when their next meal will be. Some are in broken homes facing abuse or neglect. Others feel rejected and long to know someone cares. There are children trying to survive on the streets. Some will leave school to support younger siblings. There are children who will eventually turn to violence, crime, or addiction. And some are forced into servitude, child labor, or the sex trade, things no child should ever face.
What can you do? Well, it just takes $35 per month to sponsor a child and make a difference in the course of a young life.
God’s mercy combined with a sponsor’s support mixed with a large dose of love has saved these girls.
