Thank God for the fact Virgie (one of CCM's directors) has been able to give a presentation about the work of CCM at 18 different meetings over the last 3 weeks. Please pray that this will encourage prayerful support of the work. If you'd like someone from CCM to visit your church or meeting, please get in touch.

Testimony of Lita Maddara

Read an article written by an EAP graduate. A truly heart warming testimony - well worth the 5 minutes it takes to read!

COUNQUERING IMPOSSIBILITIES, words that I portray when I happened to be part of a family.

I became an EAP recipient when I was Second Year high school. I was childish, innocent, silly, immature and irresponsible. I don’t have the confidence to be friends with other members. I don’t like... Read more

Praise God that Jane and Jessica, two of the girls CCM help, have graduated from college.

Jane used to live with her mother on the streets before she came to CCM's homes. Jessica's parents died when she was young, leaving her in the care of a guardian who couldn’t afford to feed her, let alone send her to school. 
Both came to Christian Compassion Ministries, where they regularly heard the gospel. Jane lived under the care of CCM for about 16 years, and Jessica for 12 years. 
They persevered in their studies, and in God’s goodness have both now graduated from College. With their College education, Jane and Jessica are free from the cycle of poverty from which they came. 

Saving Money in CCM homes

The children's homes recently had a workshop on composting and how to grow their own vegetables. As a result it is hoped the children will be able to grow produce that will save CCM money at the market. Even better - this will also be valuable training for the children's future!

Flooding (Manila unaffected) 
posted 3 Jan 2012 10:17 
The situation in Mindanao (southern Philippines) is far more serious than any other flood we have had in the Philippines. It is even more devastating than Ondoy (2009) was here in Manila. The death toll is now about 1,250 and may well end up being many 100's more.

One of the men from CRBC is currently in Mindanao, doing a survey of how the church and CCM could best help. There are good links with a church in ‘Iligan’, one of the badly hit cities. Medicines and some money have already been sent to this church, and we are considering sending a small team of about 4 people in early January. 

Please pray for the Lord’s people seeking to serve Him in these difficult situations.

New Land

Recently a good sized piece of land has been purchased in the area near the Girls' Homes. It is hoped that a purpose built home will be built to house the boys and the house parents. Plans are currently being drawn up, and we are looking to God to provide money to build this new home.

CCM and CRBC members have again been involved in continuing relief operations of flood victims to the north of Manila as the result again of tremendous flooding from a series of typhoons. They have helped well over 1,000 families with relief supplies.
