Recently, we were reminded of the empathy that ICC children have for one another. You’ll find it in the following story from the Las Palmas Children’s Village.
For many years, Las Palmas has had a thriving Pathfinder Club. If you’ve had personal experience being a Pathfinder, you know the joy of learning life skills and participating in activities and events that are not only fun but that also build character. One such event is the Pathfinder camporee where other sister clubs gather for a weekend of fellowship, worship, and unique activities.
This year, the Las Palmas young people were trying to raise funds so that they could attend the upcoming camporee. However, when they found out about the newly orphaned children in the DR Congo that you’ve read about recently, they also were filled with compassion. Their response was quick. They would forgo their camporee and send the money they had already raised to help care for the new children. What a lovely example of loving sacrifice for others!
The Las Palmas children created a little video greeting that was sent to their “cousins” in Congo. Here is what one of the girls shared: “We would like to offer you some help… We have heard about a situation that is really affecting you. We want to help you, and may the peace of God always be with each one of you.”
Your support of ICC children is helping them to experience not only God’s peace themselves, but also a heart of compassion.
Thank You for Helping Orphans, Too!
Your support of the children is truly amazing! It is making a transformational difference in their lives. And one of the ways you’ve been supporting the children is through the “Summer of Care” matching challenge.
We’re pleased to announce that generous ICC family members like you have helped us reach and exceed the goal. We praise the Lord for working through you to bless the children in such an impactful way this summer! On their behalf, thank you very much!
The journey of the children continues – and so will their needs. Please continue to pray for them and support them financially with a special gift today. Thank you!
