CAGAYAN DE ORO’S STREET CHILDREN – IF YOU DO NOT TOUCH THEIR HEARTS TODAY, THEY WILL BREAK YOUR HEART TOMORROW.
“Let us not wary in doing good, for at a proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people” – Gal 6 : 9-10
Cagayan de Oro’s Street Children
A privilege to share God’s Love
In the Philippines today, countless of children lives on the streets. Most of them abandoned by their parents, these boys and girls fend for themselves by begging. Some become victims of child prostitution and drug abuse. They will grow up not knowing true love. They are the potential candidates for robberies and kidnapping.
The challenge facing us today is so great as in the following illustration:
A TRUE STORY
A delinquent kid kept giving problems to his teachers. One day, the principal dismissed the boy with a painful. “There’s the street. Go and never come back…”
He kept coming back to them, however … through the news. For his was a career of crime in robberies and killings few could compare in history. Lured to the Biograph Theatre in a trap, a rain of bullets felled him. That was July 2, 1934. he was 31 years old. His name John Herbert Dillinger, the most feared desperado of his time.
A newspaper showed only his feet in death. The caption: “These are the feet of John Dillinger!, who knows where these feet might have gone if someone had guided them aright”
There are two ways the world deals with street children. Ignore them or reach out to them.
FOR THOSE WHO CARES…
There is only one way to share God’s love by reaching out to them.
SAVIOUR’S SHELTER OF GRACE

TOUCHED BY THE CONDITION OF Cagayan de Oro’s street children, Shelter of Grace was formed to take care of twenty of them, both boys and girls.

THE ABANDONED CHILDREN NEEDS YOUR LOVE
We are God’s representative on this earth. Let us be mindful of Mathew 25, where the Lord spoke of those who fed Him, clothed Him, gave Him shelter and the righteous will say: “Lord, when did we do all of those things?” Jesus will reply “whenever you did to the least of these brothers of mine you did it to me.” We are His hands and His feet.
