ARISE Children’s Outreach International
Our Mission for the month of January will be ARISE Children’s Outreach International. ACOI is a Christian ministry reaching out to children and their families in the Philippines suffering from poverty. “Endeavoring to be the hands of Jesus as we offer tangible help, along with the tireless message of hope in Jesus Christ.”
ARISE was founded by Beninda (Bick) Miller to establish a vehicle whereby funds could be raised to encourage children and families under stress. The “Vision” of ARISE is to encourage children back into school, to assist local churches with supplies for ministry to families, to enable the sponsorship of children, to be a voice challenging involvement of believers and To see children becoming followers of Jesus as they witness his love! Bick resides with her husband and three sons near Baltic, OH, having grown up in the Philippines and still having family there.
Funds are still needed to complete their current building project–building a local church. The old church was destroyed on December 6, 2014 by a strong typhoon. The new church will be built stronger and much larger, to accommodate the increase of people who have come to the Lord Jesus Christ. Praise God!! Please
pray about being part of this mission for ARISE. Thank you and God Bless!
