Why This Project Matters
As many of you may or may not know, I have been working for Metro World Child for the past 8 years and have been on my Sunday School site for 4 of those years! I have encountered many needs in this time, but I want to tell you about one in particular.
Every day after my Friday Sunday School site, this young girl (10 years old) and her brother and sister would stay behind and eat their lunch. After a few weeks, I asked her what she was doing? She answered: Every day I drop my brother and sister at school and go to my class. On my break, I go to the store and buy some food for us to eat after school. Then at the end of Sunday School we eat on the tarps because its better than being home, theres never food at home...
It all comes down to reaching one child at a time. It's hard for me to understand why a 10-year-old girl has to look after her brothers and sisters, but that's the reality for many of the children that attend the program.
Pastor Bill Wilson, our Senior and Founding Pastor, has travelled the world for the past 30 years to raise the support to keep the door of Metro World Child open and committed to reaching the children of NYC and around the world! We reach close to 170,000 children WEEKLY!
It is now time for the next generation to pick up the baton and help with raising the funds needed to keep a ministry this size running!
As I have prayed and asked God to help guide me to the best way we can do this - not only individually, but also as a department - and in studying the figures and costs, I realized that it costs $2500 to run any given Sidewalk Sunday School Site!
My challenge to each of you is to join with me in funding my Sunday School site! My prayer is that the cost to run my Site would be completely covered.
As Pastor Bill often says, "it's easier to build boys and girls than to repair men and women!" You have a opportunity to partner alongside me and this great ministry, to help build the futures of young boys and young girls into becoming future men and women of God!

Whether indoor or outdoor, reaching kids for Christ is what Metro World Child is all about!
