Girls living in “Garbage City” spend their days collecting, sorting, and cleaning garbage for their families to sell. Their families can’t afford to send them to school, struggle to provide enough food to eat, and often walk through mounds of trash barefoot.
Teen Ministry provides a safe place to receive medical and dental services, learn about hygiene, receive clothing and a pair of shoes, receive funding for school, and hear the gospel. Teen Ministry teaches these girls how to find joy in Christ. Despite many families being illiterate, several youth completed school and went on to the university because of their involvement with Teen Ministry.
As the girls have experienced the love of Christ, they have not only come to faith in Him, but have returned to the ministry to serve. Read more about how the Lord is using these girls to bring the gospel to their communities in ministry updates here and here.
Please pray for the Lord to make His word bear fruit in the girls’ lives, giving them comfort, refuge, and peace in Christ and making them bold witnesses to others in their community.
