Our Prayer Requests...

O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker. Psalm 95:6

Dear friends,

Good day to you all.

I was a teacher before I had stroke so that education is very important to me. I am also a Christian who believes God can use me even with physical disability. 

Love in Action Christian Outreach is not the ministry God has given me. Neither it is established in the church where I am affiliated with. It is the pure desire of this true Christian young lady, Miss Maria Elena Escasiñas, who is used by God to lead this children ministry that prompted Mike and I to help even in prayers. She and very few volunteer mentors teach street children in her neighborhood basic literacy while God save their souls through them. Below are our (Mike and I) prayer requests for Love In Action Christian Outreach.

Prayer requests: 

1) Learning books (new or used), audio-visual learning gadgets and materials (new or second hand), school supplies, classroom furniture and fixtures, etc. for classroom use of street children. (The ministry volunteer-teachers are still conducting mobile classes on streets.) 

2) Plan to conduct a small party on December 26 for street children and very poor neighbors:
a. Place to conduct the party as the recently-rented classroom is not available yet (no signal from landlord to use the room yet).
b. Giving “Bundles of Joy” to families - one (1) sack rice (1 kilo per family), noodles and canned sardines.
c. Eat-All-You-Can Ice cream at 1,000 to 1,500 Philippine pesos per ice-cream drum/container or more/less US$ 34 at P 45/US$.

3) Continued financial support for the room rental until the school will be able to support itself.

4) Sponsorship for a street child’s schooling at US$ 20 or US$ 200 for 10 children for the whole program coverage [once the Accelerated Christian Education (ACE) will be established and teachers trained. Kindly visit this website and be encouraged:]

5) Training of teacher-volunteers in ACE curriculum as this is not the same with the basic literacy curriculum in the Philippines. 

Please pray with us and help when you can.

Thank you very much. 

Sincerely in Christ,
Luisa (with Mike)
