GKN Radio Telethon / In the Philippines
Aloha & Praise the Lord for He is so good!
As you may know, GLOBAL KIDS NOW, our non-profit, faith-based humanitarian organization hosted a Fundraiser Concert with Dennis James Lee and the Free To Follow Band in February 2015 with the hope of raising the funds needed to travel to the Philippines on a ministry mission. In April 2015, our team was able to go into the missions field because of your financial contributions. THANK YOU! On this trip, our missions team encountered many new friends in the Philippines and was able to experience, first hand, the devastating poverty that is wide-spread throughout the many provinces traveled.
It was a heart-wrenching sight to observe such brokenness amongst households of parent-less families with multiple children being raised by an elderly grandparent, or children just simply dredging through dump sites hoping to unearth recyclable items to exchange for food. Many of these children are referred to as squatters who spend their days rummaging through what we would consider trash rather than being in schools to obtain their well-needed education. Our mission team learned that most children do not attend school because they don’t have the money needed to pay for their transportation. Such an unfortunate tragedy!
But GOD! During the missions trip the team, along with Pastor Sonny Ona of Word International Ministries, was blessed to partner with other ministries leaders and pastors who were able to guide the team through several provinces where the team was able to minister to and love on the many, many children and families with the Love of Jesus Christ through music, hula, and the Word of God! Everyone joyfully received the tremendous amounts of Aloha not just from the missions team, but from you, our supporters here in Hawaii. We were so blessed and have developed such a depth of love for our Ohana in the Philippines, which is why GLOBAL KIDS NOW has made a commitment to campaign for the support of all children who are in need in the Philippines.
Please enjoy viewing this video of our mission team’s experience in the Philippines in April 2015.
To continue our pledge to our Filipino Ohana, GLOBAL KIDS NOW is hosting a Special 2-Day Radio Telethon next week Tuesday & Wednesday, that’s July 14 & 15, on Hawaii’s very own 95.5 The FISH. The Radio-Telethon will be airing from 5:30am – 6:00pm on July 14, and 5:30am – 10:00am on July 15, seeking the support from all of our Hawaii islands so we can provide for the needs of the Feeding Programs our dear partners and friends are launching in the Philippines. These new partners in ministry, Lemton Agricola and Pastor Joedy Lim, amongst other pastors & leaders, have such a passion to help bring hope to the children who have lost all hope, and we are committed to partner with them to beat poverty and the plans of the enemy!
We are asking for your support during our Radio Telethon and beyond! Please join us by tuning in during our air-time and make your pledge to help us, help our Filipino Ohana in the Philippines. You can also make your financial contribution at anytime by visiting our donations page.
