Welcome to the Philippines!

Step Into My Shoes — Philippines brings your children alongside five kids in some of this country’s poorest communities.

  •  Discover what it means to be “called” — to follow Jesus, to be the Church, and to care for those God cares about.
  •  Helps your children understand and embrace their calling to live closely with Him as they respond by loving children and the “least of these.”

Here’s what we learned this week!

In today’s video we traveled together to the Philippines to
meet Leah, who follows Jesus and who is part of a great church
in her community, Alegria [pronounced “ah-lay-GREE-uh”].

Leah lives right on the ocean, on the island of Cebu. Leah and her family are very connected to their church community, and the love of God’s family is a major support not only for them, but also for their entire town.

Leah’s church follows Jesus by worshiping together, studying Scripture together, and by looking for ways to meet all kinds of needs in the church family. And that means it takes all kinds of skills, all kinds of work, all kinds of ideas, all kinds of ages and sizes of people. When Jesus calls us a family, I think that’s what he has in mind. When we do these kinds of things for our brothers and sisters near and far, that is the church.

Bible Verse:
We know what real love is because Jesus gave up his life for us. So we also ought to give up our
lives for our brothers and sisters. If someone has enough money to live well and sees a brother or
sister in need but shows no compassion — how can God’s love be in that person? Dear children,
let’s not merely say that we love each other; let us show the truth by our actions.
1 John 3:16-18, NLT
