FILA People seek to serve God in their community in all sorts of ways. Of course they love to worship and pray, to find direction from God and to share the Good News about Jesus with those round about them, but they also want to show God's love in other ways too. The pictures on this post give you some idea what kind of people they are, have a look at the faces of those who love Jesus, they are so happy and full of Joy because of what God has done in their hearts. This picture shows Pastor Peter Awane with his wife and family. (Images should enlarge if you click on them).
Many children have no access to education and so FILA is making every effort possible to find ways of providing a useful education to the children of the community. Some 400 children are in great need here. If education is not to become available to them then it is very likely they will go the way of many others before them, into crime, drugs and prostitution.
Although still very young these kids know the benefits of a good education. They have seen already all too graphically what will happen to them if they miss out on this vital part of their life. It is a real blessing to have the opportunity to go to school. We want to be able to help them. You can get involved in this project first hand by sponsoring a child or purchasing some school books or other resources.
Needy people: Here Pastor Peter Awane stands beside Frank and his grandmother. They and the community have sacrificed a lot to get Frank through junior high school. Their resources have run out now. Frank wants to go on to senior high school but his grandmother cannot afford to do any more. Frank needs a sponsor to allow him to fulfil his young dream of making it through school. Perhaps you can help Frank, a donation of £20/month can see Frank achive his senior high school education.
