Let the Children Not Be Hindered

Thanks to you, the Pampa Mercado project is fully funded!

From Bright Hope: “Just wanted to let you know that we received the check you sent for $5,000! Praise the Lord! THANK YOU! … I will send this information along and see how soon we can get this floor taken care of!”

It is difficult to comprehend from this corner of the world what life is like in Pampa Mercado and just how much this project will affect this little community in Peru. The people of Pampa Mercado were forced to move from their original home to escape the terrorists who murdered their leaders. In their new home, they are subsistence farmers and gatherers — they support themselves by gathering whatever food they can find for their own consumption. Most of the people there do not read or write, making education for the children there essential. Before this school was built in Pampa Mercado, the children had to walk two hours away to attend the nearest school. Many were simply unable to attend. A local school offers children not only the opportunity to learn how to read and write, but also the opportunity to read the Bible and learn about God’s love for them. Through this school, through these children, an entire community will be changed.

Thank you for sharing the love of God that transforms lives. For caring enough about these children to provide a clean, dry place for them to learn and be loved. For demonstrating to this community how to value their children as they ought. For furthering God’s work in this place. Thank you.

“But Jesus called the children to him and said, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.’” Luke 18:16

A New Floor for Students in Pampa Mercado, Peru


I heard this song on the radio recently.  Matthew West sings, “If not us then who? If not me and you? Right now, it’s time for us to do something.  If not now then when, Will we see the end, To all this pain?  It’s time for us to do something.”

We have been commissioned to be God’s hands and feet, the salt and light of the world.  Do you sometimes feel helpless, like there’s nothing you can do that will make a difference?  That’s why we created Ambassador Ministries.  Together, we can accomplish more to care for the poor, to minister to the needy, to be what God has called us to be.

Whether you can only give a few dollars or whether you can give more, your donations serve His purposes in the world.  Thanks to donors like you, the new school floor in Peru is two-thirds of the way funded!

Please consider what you can do right now to help this project become reality for the many families in Pampa Mercado.  Click the “Contribute” tab to learn how you can donate.

Manuelito Children’s Home

Dear Friends,

We are excited to be able to send this letter to you today.  For some time, God has laid it on our hearts to use our lives and our resources to serve a greater purpose.  Brian’s vision has been to reach out to the poor and to lift up the hurting.  In 2 Corinthians Paul explains, “Our desire is not that others might be relieved while you are hard pressed, but that there might be equality.  At the present time your plenty will supply what they need, so that in turn their plenty will supply what you need.  Then there will be equality, as it is written: ‘He who gathered much did not have too much, and he who gathered little did not have too little’” (vv. 13-15, NIV).

“I’ve never gone hungry, always felt safe/ I got some money in my pocket, shoes on my feet/ In my own little world.”  In this song by Matthew West, he asks, “But what if there’s a bigger picture?”  There is a greater purpose for our lives!  “Whatever you have done for the least of these,” Jesus said, “you have done unto me.”  Is it not God’s desire for our lives to share the good news of His love by caring for those around us who are hurting?  Our desire is to see the bigger picture and to live out our greater purpose for God’s kingdom.

For most of us, coming home to a comfortable house and a warm, satisfying meal is a part of our day we simply take for granted.  What if it were not?  Imagine this:  you come home from a long hard day of work.  It is time to prepare a nutritious meal for you and your family.  You walk into the kitchen and throw a casserole into the oven only to find that it doesn’t work, again.

Here’s the bigger picture:  The staff and children at the Manuelito Children’s Home will find themselves in this position unless we help to turn their situation around.  Manuelito’s vision is to see Honduras free of children living on the city streets.  They rescue these children, give them an education, and enable them to become productive citizens of their country who seek God’s will in their lives.  However, the Project has an oven that is 20 years old.  Often it does not work, and they must use a grill for cooking instead.  With your help, we can provide a new, reliable stove to ensure that the children at Manuelito Children’s Home will have a properly cooked meal.

Will you help us to share God’s love with these children?  Paul related to the church, “Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously.  Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver” (2 Corinthians 9:6-7).  Will you choose to help Manuelito properly provide for the needs of the children in their care?  If God is laying it on your heart to help us share God’s love with these children, please contact us today. 

God bless,

Brian Hunt, Ambassador
