Global Compassion

There is a familiar saying which states:  “You can’t really understand another person’s experience until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes.”  At Crosspointe Church, we want you to experience what it would be like to walk in the shoes of one of our children from our feeding centers.  We know that if you can see what they see, smell what they smell, taste what they taste and touch what they touch, you will have a greater understanding of their daily struggle to survive.

Awareness is our greatest weapon in the fight against poverty.

As more people become aware, the more children we will be able to reach. Last year we took people just like you on multiple trips to visit our projects around the world. We provide opportunities to do community outreaches, service projects, teach Bible stories, make home visits, sight-seeing, and so much more.  And on every one of those trips, people came home changed, their hearts touched by a child they encountered on a trip. All our trips are usually 5 to 12 days.  We run trips year round, but the bulk of these take place from spring through fall. We attempt to schedule trips to visit as many different projects and locations as possible, thus providing you with a wide array of experiences and locations to choose.

Frequently Asked Questions

Mexico

Next Trip: October 18-20, 2019

In Mexico 7 out of 10 Born in Poverty Will Die in Poverty. 70 percent of the population in Tijuana, some 2.2 million people — do not earn enough to cover their basic food needs. Due to the great number of migrants from southern Mexican states, and from Central and South American countries, who come to Tijuana in the hope of making their way into the US, the city is expanding rapidly. The constant migratory flux in Tijuana has led to the fragmentation, and in many cases, the total disintegration, of families and a great number of children have lost parental care. These children may have to work on the streets in order to survive, thus jeopardizing their education. Without protection, they are vulnerable to sexual exploitation and violence, and often they begin to take drugs.

The Difference you can make: We partner with Manna Worldwide and Centro Shalom Church by sponsoring a nutrition center connected to this local church in Tijuana, Mexico. Daily we are feeding over 40 children physically and spiritually in Jesus’ Name. In addition to nutritious meals, there are so many other benefits these children are experiencing through our giving. The cost is only $1 a day to rescue a child from the grip of poverty in Tijuana, Mexico.

Guatemala

Approximately 400,000 orphans live in Guatemala City. With a lack of orphanages to care for these children, kids are wandering trash heaps looking for food, water, and clothing. In addition, due to extreme poverty, parents are throwing their infants away because they cannot afford to care for them.

We are partnering with Manna Worldwide and completed building an orphanage to rescue abandoned children from the trash heaps of Guatemala. The orphanage is able to give them 24/7 care, food, clothing, shelter, and education. The cost is only $10 a day per child.

We have an opportunity to offer faith, hope, and love to the world’s neediest children. We are partnering with Christian leaders to have the greatest impact as we provide nutritious meals, emergency medical care, clean water, and spiritual hope.

We want to reach children that suffer most and equip them to achieve their full potential in Christ. And when we pray, give and go, we are making this desperate need a reality.

Philippines

There are approximately 1.7 million children living in the slums of metro Manila, Philippines. These children are faced with extreme poverty and forced to wander the streets looking for provisions for their basic needs.  These undernourished children face sickness, street fights, sexual exploitation, and exposure to substance abuse.

We currently support missionary Lance Gotcher in metro Manila, Philippines. He oversees 4 churches in this area and is reaching over 2,000 Filipinos every weekend. In addition, we partner with Manna Worldwide by sponsoring 3 feeding centers connected with these local churches. Daily we are feeding hundreds of children physically and spiritually in Jesus’ Name. The cost is only $1 a day to feed a child.
