Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me.”
— Matthew 19:14
Imagine if you were a child and no one remembered your birthday. Or there was no one there to give you a hug and an encouraging word.
Sadly, not all of Taipei’s children come from supportive homes. Many children have to struggle with abuse and neglect, or grow up thinking that no one really cares for them. They don’t know that they have a friend in Jesus and a friend in us too.
That’s why at the EM, our At-Risk Youth Team takes the time to be a big brother and big sister to kids who need a little more care. We go on fun outings and plan events together, play games and eat lunch together, and let each one of these kids know that there are people here who love them, and a God who loves them most of all!
At the moment, the At-Risk Youth Team serves around 60 kids. They are always in need of extra hands and extra hearts. If you would like to join in, please contact the EM secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org
