International Child Care Ministries, Direction – Summer Issue 2009

FM Churches across Canada are known to have a heart for missions. Numerous teams are sent out each year to different countries to show Christ’s love to those in need. This not only positively changes the country, but also ignites an excitement and passion in congregations – leaving a desire to do more. This is where International Child Care Ministries comes in . . . as a Child Sponsorship Ministry, we believe we are an extension of the mission field, a way to tangibly love the hearts that have touched ours.

Our vision over the coming years is to partner with Free Methodist Churches in Canada and target specific countries to form strategic and global partnerships, developing a focus for each church of generosity and serving.

We have already started this process with the congregation of Trulls Road. After prayerful consideration, the church has decided to put their mission focus on India. Donations are made to specific funds, multiple teams are sent out to specific regions, and we are able to offer the sponsorship of children in the exact areas that were served in. This creates a level of unity and collaboration throughout the church, and paints a clear picture of the progress being made to the congregation.

The following are the countries that ICCM is involved in: Brazil; Burundi; Cambodia; Chile; Ecuador; Ethiopia; Ghana; Haiti; India; Kenya; Malawi; Nigeria; Philippines; Venezuela. We will continue to strategically expand our country base . . .

“If you extend your soul to the hungry and satisfy the afflicted, then your light shall dawn in the darkness, and your darkness shall be as the noonday.” Isaiah 58:10

Our hope is for you to prayerfully consider what country your focus could be, and allow us partner with you in showing Christ’s love to the world.
