This Month We’re Spotlighting Child Sponsorship
P u t t i n g F a i t h I n t o A c t i o n S i n c e 1 9 5 9 Receiving Little Ones in His Name: WME’s Outreach to Children
“And He sat down, and called the twelve, and saith unto them, ‘If any man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all, and servant of all.’ And He took a child, and set him in the midst of them: and when He had taken him in His arms, He said unto them, ‘Whosoever shall receive one of such children in My name, receiveth Me: and whosoever shall receive Me, receiveth not Me, but Him that sent Me’ .”
Mark 9:35-37 Dear WME Partners and Supporters,
LITTLE ONES TO HIM BELONG, THEY ARE WEAK, BUT HE IS STRONG. YES, JESUS LOVES ME! THE BIBLE TELLS ME SO... Such simple words, yet so profound. The truth contained in them is just as powerful today as when the lyrics were published in the 1860’s.
Children are precious in the sight of God. And one way in which we serve our Lord is by receiving and blessing children in His Name. THAT IS WHY FROM OUR EARLIEST DAYS, WORLD MISSIONARY EVANGELISM HAS DILIGENTLY LABORED TO CHANGE THE LIVES OF CHILDREN SUFFERING FROM POVERTY AND NEED.
One way we do this is through WME’s Child Sponsorship Program. It only takes $35 per month to sponsor a child and change the course of a single, young life. It’s a relatively small investment that makes a huge difference for a child. So, what exactly does Child Sponsorship do?
For many children who would be condemned to violence, hunger, illiteracy, sickness or even death, Child Sponsorship is their best opportunity to not just survive today but to thrive in the future. It is their bridge to adulthood. Sponsored children go to school, make friends and find acceptance. They eat nutritious food, and many receive new clothing and shoes. Those living in a WME Children’s Home have a safe place to rest their heads. Christian staff care for their needs and constantly demonstrate God’s love. And they hear about the Good Shepherd who willingly sacrificed Himself so they can experience a more abundant life now and for an eternity to come.
Alternatively, you can help an entire group of children by supporting a WME Children’s Home. If you are a home owner, you know that to keep your house in good shape you maintain it and make essential repairs.
Many sponsored children were once living on the edge between life and death. Some were hungry, homeless and lost. They had no hope until they were sponsored.

WME Children’s Homes are no different. They need regular maintenance and repairs. We have some facilities which house dozens of children, while others shelter over 100 young at a time. So roofs, windows, bathrooms and kitchens have to be fixed or updated. We must
regularly change out beds, mattresses and bedding. And there are pots, plates and utensils that must be replenished. We need partners who can help us keep things ship-shape.
You may ask, what about children in dire circumstances who aren’t yet sponsored but need immediate help? For them, there is WME’s Food For Hunger Program. This Program supports and feeds children who do not yet have a sponsor. Food For Hunger is often how we initiate
