Vision for the Children International

Dear <<First Name>>,
To see a child's eyes light up with hope and joy, or see a family experience security and love where there was non before, are just a few of our favorite things.  The life changing value of hope and what the security of a loving home brings to a child, encourages us daily at Vision for the Children International. Our hearts are filled with gratitude for all of you who continually hold us up in prayer, share our stories, volunteer and give out of your compassion. You bring smiles to children's faces, hope to families and provide futures that are full of possibility.  We hope you enjoy the encouraging articles, featured ministries, videos and our Praise and Prayer highlights.  Thank you so much for all you do for us and we hope you enjoy a few of our favorite things.  "Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good. His love endures forever." Psalm 136:1 NIV

Blessings,
Christopher Green
President/CEO

Report from the Field

DECEMBER UPDATE from BENNIE KUMAR
Director of Strategic Partnership Relations

It’s Saturday afternoon in the city of Tbilisi Georgia and Kids Clubs directors Bruno & Ira Schmidt are letting me accompany them to one of their weekly Kids’ Clubs in a village just outside of town. We arrive at a long stairway leading up to a row of apartment buildings; we only wait for a short time before we see five pre-teenagers thundering down the crooked steps, rushing towards us. After lots of big smiles, hello’s and hugs, they all pile into the car; girls in the middle and boys in the back. And we’re off again,

December Highlight: Kids Clubs

Through Kids Clubs, hundreds of children are being introduced to the love of Jesus by those who demonstrate it on a daily basis. Through the use of recreational sports, games, craft projects, and bible stories, we are creating foundations that allow us to teach life skills, share the gospel, and build lasting relationships with children, families and their communities. All of this is happening on a weekly, monthly, and yearly basis. We are so thankful to our Kids Club Directors Bruno and Ira for their compassion, love and faithfulness to these children! Ultimately it is our vision that the future of children, their families, and their communities are changed forever as we impact this generation of children.
