Day 14: Cebu


The Children’s Shelter of Cebu helps children who will be adopted and those who won’t.  They have a comprehensive program of loving care for all the children in their care.

Christian, if you can’t find a mission out there you want to give to, there is something wrong with your heart.


The Wally Johnson Teen Home is for teens who, for a variety for reasons, will not be able to be adopted.  What is especially cool about this home is that the teens can stay here as long as they want.  They are not forced out of the house at 18, or 21.  The teens and young adults here are in school, college, trade school, or starting on their careers.  They can even stay only on the weekends or during breaks while they’re in college or starting out (just like most can with their parents).  Very, very cool.

This month I have discovered the abundance of worthy, Christ-centered missions, far more than I ever knew before.

There is no possible way I could select each mission and discuss it.  I could never even find them all.  Your church is probably already plugged in to the mission field, maybe through a variety of missions.  But sometimes God calls our heart to give above and beyond what we would usually give, maybe even, for example, to Cebu.
