Since 1987, Arise & Shine Evangelistic Association began assisting the children of the Philippines to obtain a quality Christian education. Thousands of children have been assisted and many have been sponsored all the way through a college education. For $40.00 a month, a Filipino child receives a chance at a new life. The sponsor receives a picture of the child, communication from the child, and the reward of being God’s outstretched hand to a family in need. Without the generosity of these sponsors, we could not give these children such a wonderful gift — an education based on God’s Word. It is truly a gift of life, for without quality Christian education, most children are in bondage to a life of poverty.
