Girls Home - Ang Bahay Parola 4 (The Lighthouse)

This is ABP4, our newest home which houses little girls from the ages of 6 years old to 12 years old.  The top story is the girls home and the bottom level is an MTW church plant.  As many of you know there are 1.2 million children on the Streets in Manila and this is one attempt to minister to these kids and also to reach these girls with the gospel.  They are given a roof over their heads, food, clothes, a bed and the opportunity to attend school.  Most street children cannot afford the simple clothes to attend public school.

These are the precious girls!

This darling girl on the left is 6 years old and her older sister is the girl in the black and white stripped shirt.  They both have beautiful eyes and all live at ABP4.

Just some more cute kids along the way.  The little girl had wavy hair and was a cutie! The little boy was obviously not too sure about this white American that wanted to take his picture.  He was boxing all the kids around him cause he wants to be another Manny Pacquiao - the Filipino hero!

Oh Deb -they're just beautiful. I'm so glad someone's there to show those little ones the love of Christ on so many levels. I wish I could be there, too.

Hope we get to see ABP4! I am so excited about the newest addition. Give Buboy my love and tell him that the house looks great and the children precious.

I recognize those girls!! Oh how I want to be there with yall so badly!
We are doing a Philippines presentation this Sunday at Madison Heights and next Sunday at a missions conference for another church in Jackson. I'm hoping we'll be able to raise money for your team!! If nothing else, we're spreading the word and gaining Prayer Warriors!!
