An Update From
Kids International Ministries
January 2015
Our ministry centers around the Philippines.
Join Us This New Year

Greetings partrners in prayer! We would like to usher the new year in with some great news for you.

Do you know that oldies song, "love is in the air, every where I look around"? Well it has certainly rang true here in KIM.... with Janel marrying Elliot Tan in the Philippines May 9, Kyle marrying Carina in Seattle June 21, and staff members Daniel Herrington and Natalie Stephens planning a wedding as well. Pray for these soon to be couples to be able to plan these special events as they continue to serve Jesus in special ways across Asia...

At Our Ministry Centers...

In Manila...

over the past three months nine new homes have been built for Cuatro community families, our social workers have moved into their new offices, five of our older girls have moved into their independent living quarters, and our Mango property is expanding with five new classrooms and a dental clinic. God is doing some amazing things through our teams...

continues to give shelter and care to women with unplanned pregnancies and our children's home nursery is over run with fun (18 kids now ages four and under) HELP!!!!!!


In Tacloban...
our hardworking staff threw a successful Christmas party for 1000 community members - all of whom are Typhoon Yolanda survivors. Everyone had a great time sharing gifts, food, and the love of God.

As 2015 continues, expansion plans are being drawn to add to our ability to teach pre-school, pre-natal classes, and offer a dental clinic... more space for conferences and people to stay... Stay tuned for this year's amazing progress... HELP!!!!
