Sponsor a Child
We are a Christian nonprofit doing what we do quite simply because of the example Christ himself gave us. Sharing Biblical teaching, we give the opportunity for belief in Christ, but never “cram” or “force” anyone to change their minds. God’s truth is real and transforming. Hope, forgiveness and peace in a heart are powerful enough to change a life, family and communities. The ultimate end of war and conflict is, in fact, death. If the contrast is life, where is that a life found?
Jesus said, The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly. John 10:10 ESV
What makes child sponsorship with Indigenous Ministries unique?
Since 1998, we have been helping children with love and aid and we’ve learned a thing or two about what sponsorships work best. But it’s our work with refugees in Iraq that especially distinguishes our ministry. Syrian and Iraqi refugee families have special needs our teams are able to meet because most are refugees themselves.
“Why is my child not receiving a school uniform and supplies?” One parent asked this question recently of Fadi, a team member. Unfortunately his son did not yet have a sponsor, even though his name has been on the waiting list for months. I truly wish we could help all these children! There’s a very real chance he and many others won’t be able to attend school without a uniform and supplies. It always strikes me deeply when we have to turn kids and parents away simply for the lack of money. Money shouldn’t stop us from helping deserving children of a future! – John Cook, CEO
