Care for Orphans
How do you fit the story of hundreds of changed lives onto 1 post? You really can't. But that's what's happening at Shepherd Care each day. Orphans have a home and family. Children are being educated. The sick are receiving care. Lepers are loved. The hungry are fed. But most importantly, the Gospel is going out and hearts are redeemed.
Outreach to Widows
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
The question is often asked, "How can the bonds of poverty be broken?" The most powerful force against poverty is probably education. Education is a media through which opportunity buds and grows. It may take a generation, but this is a good starting point.
Proclaim the Gospel
Assist widows in the community by providing rice and beans. Some of the widows volunteer to work on the farm and in turn, they receive a portion of the harvest. The ministry provides limited vocational training to help them make wares for market.
"So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it." ...Isiah 55:11
The Good News is taught in each classroom plus morning devotions. The Shepherd Care Chapel serves Bender Scholar Schools as an assemble hall for special activities as well as classrooms. It houses an elaborate library, a prayer room and music room. On weekends, the Chapel serves as the home of The Chapel Church for the orphans and personnel as well as the general public.
The development of SCIM Farm is an ongoing project aimed at producing sustainability of the entire Shepherd Care initiative.
