An Outreach to Local Children!
She’s GONE! No trace of her anywhere. A deleted Facebook profile. No return emails or even sightings by her friends. I think she is GONE! Please Lord let this not be true. She became isolated and is now gone!
Children in our very own local primary and secondary schools have become socially isolated and will experience greater mental health difficulties like loneliness and depression. But you can be part of the solution with a simple $20 gift!
Imagine a child sitting by themselves during a school activity. She is sad because her friends have been making fun of her dirty clothes. Now she feels lonely, isolated and not loved at all. She needs you to come to her RESCUE!
HERE IS GOOD NEWS! We are launching this program to help this child because it is the RIGHT THING TO DO. But your help is needed TODAY! A gift of $20 will help 1 child get these essential items.
The Bible clearly warns us that the enemy will prey on the child who becomes isolated from the world. This happens too often in our local communities and your help to STOP this problem is needed.
1 Peter 5:8 says “Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.”
Imagine the local elementary school having a closet of coats, boots and other items at their disposal to give to at-risk children. I am sure you know of a child who could benefit from this new program. This program will also take the pressure off of our teachers and allow them to simply teach the children in their classrooms.
The story I started this letter with is actually the real story of a young girl ACF met as an eleven-year old. Noemi thought of us as her family. And now appears to be GONE! My heart breaks thinking of her walking the streets alone! Kids like this need help! Your help!
What would cause a young girl to simply disappear? Is it by choice or is it loneliness and a feeling or worthlessness? We pray regularly that she has simply made the choice to leave the area or just to live out of the public eye. However something tells me it might even worse.
One thing is known for sure! She always felt lost and had no value or purpose in life. How many other children walk among us feeling the same way? We can’t afford to lose any more of our precious children.
Her name now is attached to a new outreach being launched. Noemi’s Closet will help local at-risk children with some of the humanitarian aid needed by these children. A new warm coat or fresh pair of winter boots just might be the hope a child needs to prevent them from getting isolated and lost.
But your help is needed now to launch this new program. Could you give a one-time gift to support this project along with all of the other wonderful programs that help children like Noemi?
Teachers have told us numerous stories of how compassionate teachers go out of their way to provide at-risk children with the essential items they need. Imagine the thoughts a child has showing up to school with an old ragged and stinky coat?
We believe that God is finally opening a door to make this happen but your help is needed!
A gift of $20 will provide 1 child the needed items to keep them from feeling like an outsider. $40 will help 2 children and $100 will help 5 children.
Noemi was and still is a precious gem. She is treasured much like our other children and I am sure as you do your children and grandchildren. Now imagine how God sees these children. His love for them is even greater and wants the best for these children.
By you providing a gift you allow teachers to minister to children in a compassionate and effective way. Can you help TODAY? The goal is to launch this program to seven elementary schools in 2020.
