What is Street Kids Philippine Missions?

You can learn about Street Kids Philippines Missions on their website http://streetkidspm.wordpress.com/.

The orphanage and non-profit ministry is an extension of a Filipino church, His Dwelling Christian Church, located in Cebu City and led by Pastor Cornelio Ebo.  Matthew and Dalisay (Lee) Dwinells became the primary care-givers to the children in February 2010 after serving for three years on staff at the Rancho 3M orphanage in Guadelupe, Mexico.  Matthew felt a calling to serve in the Philippines for many years before they were able to become involved, and Lee is Filipino.

I am a college student studying English and Communications, and since I was very young I have felt that God may be calling me to take hold of the education my loving family has provided for me, the truths God has shown me, and the freedoms America has given me to craft them into something that will bring tangible relief to the world’s many impoverished citizens and tell them about Christ.

I met Matthew and Lee Dwinells while volunteering with my church at Rancho 3M in Mexico and have followed their journey to the Philippines while praying that I might find some way to help them. After a few failed attempts to obtain grants, my friends and family were very generous and donated money so that I could go serve at the orphanage. I received encouragement and help from various professors, and Dr. G very kindly created this website for me to update while I am there.

I am excited to see how God blesses the faith and support of the many people who have helped launch my trip. I pray that even just a few people will gain a better understanding of life in the Philippines and that through this endeavor the children at the orphanage will grow physically and spiritually. My upcoming adventure is a great unknown to me, but I’m sure God will use it for good.

“For the Lord your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great, the mighty, and the awesome God, who is not partial and takes no bribe. He executes justice for the fatherless and the widow, and loves the sojourner, giving him food and clothing,”
Deuteronomy 10: 17-18.
