For His Children

Okay.. how cute are these little ones?

I love my quilting passion... and I equally love serving those in need. This week I am busily preparing for a 2 week trip (starts Friday) to Ecuador to assist in childrens care at "For His Children", a residential ministry for homeless / abandoned children.

A little about "For His Children"
Supported by God’s provision of prayer, the hearts of an American couple, donations and encouragement, the ministry grew from one child in 1990, to now over 500 children who have been held in the arms of FHC. Currently, 50 to 60 children are cared for in three residential care homes in north-east Quito and a home in Latacunga, in the Province of Cotopaxi. The environment provides physical and emotional support, spiritual nurturing, and lots of tender loving care. The children at FHC range from newborn to 13 years of age.

Loving and attentive caregivers take care of four to five children. The family-like environment is warm, bright and cheerful. If required, a child receives language and physical therapy. Older children receive learning programs appropriate for their age and abilities. We provide encouragement and hope, helping each infant and child to know that God loves them and that He has a plan and a future for them

Approximately 35% of the children have moderate to severe special needs. Almost all have been abandoned by their families. If you'd like to know more about For His Children... here's a link:
