Mission Activities with Philippine Garbage Dump Children


The PURPOSE of the Moriel Mission is to obey the great commission of the Lord Jesus Christ. It is to evangelize people around the dump site area and to other communities. To see them saved and to educate people from the word of God for right faith and practice.

Programs and Activities

We focus first on the children who need much care, as the Lord Jesus Christ said in Matthew 19:14 & Matthew 14:16.We gathered the scavenging children from the rubbish dumps to teach them the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and gave them food to eat. The number of children have reached to more than 70, who are regular on the Moriel Regular Teaching and Feeding Program feeding the children daily. After reaching the children, we reached their parents. Some of them are actively and regularly attending the Bible study. Secondly there is education in the form of sponsorship with Moriel Gift Giving. Every start of school year, the children receive school supplies, toiletries and book bags. During rainy season, the children receive umbrellas and raincoats for their protection from rain. Every month of December - Year End Thanksgiving party plus grocery bags containing grocery items. Thirdly there is Moriel Aide where we help pay other school fees, provides vitamins and medicines, help assist the parent to bring the sick child to Hospital when needed.
