Project: Christmas in Payatas ACHIEVED FOR 2009&2010&2011&2012&2013&2014&2015&2016
The goal is to supply each child with a new shirt, pants or skirt, footwear and a toy.
There will be a service for the children and a hot meal with desert.
Children in Payatas have little or nothing to look forward to. When they are presented with a change of clothes and a simple gift it is received with overwhelming joy.
Our plan is to have a time of Biblical lessons, singing and a meal and then to give out the presents.In the past couple of years we have also added Bible contests and Quizzes with prizes!
Shirt = 90p
complete meal w/desert 75p
Total per child=440p x 100 children =44,000p
prizes – 10,000
grocery for the child’s family – 10,000
with bank charges we need to add $100 U.S.
NOTE: This year (2012) we aim to improve the giving. Better clothes, skirts for girls and giving food packages for the children to bring home for their families extending the holiday to their families. Estimated Cost: $1,650 U.S.D.
This year (2013) we are in need to raise prices as prices have risen all over the world. If you notice the footwear is up to 40,000 pesos. That is because we have a sponsor for the sneakers and he asked that 400p be allocated for each child.
The price will be 2,566.36
This year (2014) we were actually able to get reduced prices along with an increased exchange rate. We will need $1,500 which includes all bank fees/ paypal…

Project: Camp – Five days in April /May ACHIEVED FOR 2009&2010&2011&2012%2013
We would like to send 50 Children with an additional 25 free to the Word of Life Camp in Laguna.
Special discount: buy 2 get one free.
To see photos of the 2010 camp experience, go here:
The Word of life camp in Laguna is Christian owned and operated. Many of the children we send there experience sleeping in a real bed for the first tie in their lives. They also experience eating fifteen meals in a row without worrying from whence the next meal will arrive.
Besides a great time of good, clean, Christian fun and fellowship, the children are discipled through the Word of God by experienced teachers.
Camp is five days and four nights with all meals, lodging, activities and seminars.
Price is 800p per student x 50 = 40,000p
(This will include 25 additional kids for free.)
Transportation (round trip)

* free T shirt provided with Church logo 7,200p
Total USD $1603.82 AUD 2050.48
* The shirt is provided because many do not even have one uniform shirt and it gives them a sense of togetherness wearing the same shirt.
We no longer sponsor the Word of life trip

This new clinic will be able to help approximately 60 people per day and would allow for a free medical exam and low cost medicines.

1Co 3:6 I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.
1Co 3:7 So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.
1Co 3:8 Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour.
