During the week, the 300+ students who attend the Naomi's Heart Mission Christian Academy receive Bible instruction every day. But this is not true for the students who are sponsored at the Public Elementary Schools in our area. Those children come on Saturday mornings for activities geared toward helping them learn about Jesus and growing in their relationship with the Lord. The children sing songs, play games, hear Bible stories and do activities to help them see how much they are loved by our Lord. We end the time with a nutritious snack. It is our hope that all of our sponsored children will come to know the Lord as a personal Savior and friend. (added 9/11/17)
Every week worship services are held at our main mission compound and also at 3 satellite churches. Our pastors minister up in the mountains at Pao Pao. Services are also held at the Fellowship River Church and at our church called Higher Ground. A Sunday evening service is held at our main NHM compound. Each service is filled with praise and worship music led by our teams made up of sponsored college students as well as volunteers from the local congregations. Pastors and Pastoras teach the word of God. Children are taught lessons for their age groups. Sunday School lessons are given. Prayers are lifted up.
Sundays are busy. Vehicles head out in the morning in different directions carrying instruments, sound equipment and people. Motorcycles are used for some of the pastors. At some churches, feedings and rice handouts are done.
How blessed we are that God has allowed us to spread our outreaches to new locations so that people farther from the mission can hear the word of God regularly and experience corporate worship. (Edited 9/11/17)

Sponsoring Children to go to Public School
In the Philippines, many children cannot afford to go to school. They are required to buy uniforms, their chair, pay fees, and supply the school and teacher with materials such as floor wax and floor mats or brooms. Often only one child in the family is able to go.
Through a sponsorship program, we provide a way for children to go to school and receive the support they need to be successful. Our hope is to break the cycle of poverty through education. All these kids need is a chance. For $15.00 per month, you can sponsor a child to attend public school. This takes care of the fees, the school supplies needed, the uniforms. The cost for college students is $50.00 per month to cover their tuition.
The elementary children all come to the mission on Saturday for Bible class. High School students attend youth activities. The college students work with the younger children teaching Bible classes, they work on our praise and worship teams, and they help with other responsibilities at the mission. Your sponsorship can change a life for a child and his/her family and give them hope and a future.
Contact us if you can help. Look through the pictures. If you see a child who moves your heart, let us know. We will confirm that they are still available and help you get started.
There are also children from the Naomi's Heart Mission Christian Academy available for sponsorship. Sponsorship for Academy students is $30.00 per month.
