Women & Children: Dump Ministry
The Hope Center
We are blessed to have a building. This Hope Center was finished a little over a year ago, and continues to bless the families in this community, and provide us with a place to meet, and hold services. When we first began visiting the Dump we never expected the Lord to move how he has. Having a building that will continue to bless the church that has been built there for generations to come, is a dream only He could make possible. We have plans in the works to have a daily clinic operating out of The Hope Center as well!
Over 100 families live in our local garbage dump, they face unimaginable challenges day to day. They live there in order to find things to sell in the piles that are brought and dropped off each day. Three times a week we have three services happening at once, one for the kids that involves singing songs and doing dances, making a craft, learning a Bible story, and a snack. One for the youth 11 and up, they receive a lesson, do small group discussion, play a game, and receive a snack as well. The last service is for the women, they have a time of worship and prayer and then they receive a message/devotional time. Once a week the women’s service becomes a mixed service and many of their husbands attend as well!
We love the community that is being built and are so excited each week to see what the Lord is doing. Impact the lives of these families:
