Hope for the broken
Change for the generations
We believe that there is power in the life of Christ. In three years, fishermen were transformed into apostles and the world was never the same. When the life of Christ is present, the surrounding lives are affected in ways that shape generations. As Christ is alive in us, we believe that He has called us to invest our lives for the change of the generations by carrying comfort for the broken and hope for the needy. This calling manifests itself greatly in ministry to kids. Having both been raised in Christian homes and given our lives to Christ at early ages, we know the value of receiving gospel seed during the foundational years of life. We have been given a special passion to see the little ones among us grow into godly men and women who seek the face of God, because we know that as children grow up learning to love and be loved by God, they have much more of a chance to withstand the hardships of this world and flee the deceptive pleasures of sin.
We are all different, and the specific felt needs of a child, teen, or adult will vary, but the reality for all is that our greatest need is the true saving love that only comes from Christ. With young girls we strive to see them grasp the beauty of God’s image (Imago Dei) and how to live pure and happy lives. With the boys we urge them onward to have courage of knights and to rise up as little men who honor women and serve the great King of Kings.
Recognizing each specific physical or emotional need as an opportunity embrace a heart with the love of Christ, we pray for the Spirit to use our lives to reflect that love into the hearts of all who God put in our reach. That they may know, and rise to tell their children of God’s greatness, and in so doing change the generations with the truth of grace.
Where we are
Our calling lines up with the vision of the non-profit organization, A.M.O/Feed My Sheep Brazil. A.M.O.'s vision is to help break the cycle of physical, emotional and spiritual poverty found in the very poor communities or shantytowns called “favelas” in the state of São Paulo, Brazil.
A lot of children have health issues due to the lack of water, proper sewage, electricity, and rickety housing. They are often abandoned throughout the day, staying on the streets without hope, guidance, or supervision. Many parents have either lost or simply have never had a vision for their future.
Part of how A.M.O. helps break these cycles is by providing children and youth with a refuge from their fallen world and by giving them a glimpse of the wonders brought by the transformative power of Jesus Christ in their lives.
