One does need to emphasize the enormity of the poverty and the suffering that the majority of the people of the world experience today, although true as this observation may be, it is fair to say that all of the world’s hunger can’t be solved in a day. The Lord expects us to contribute our efforts according to the talents we have been given.
FFC was established to respond to some of the needs seen at the family level, our goal is to bring wholeness in Christ through an all-inclusive approach, we know that satan is our adversary whose biding we do when Jesus Christ is not the Lord of our lives. This program is designed to reach out to both the parents and the children.
Families that fall into these categories of needs go through a process of evaluation; a goal is set for the family. Usually these goals include making sure that the children in the family have food to eat at least three times a day, going to school, and have their healthcare needs assured, and most of all take them through a discipleship program to reveal the person of Jesus Christ to them.
Parents at the same time are allowed to set their own goals, usually their goals include being able to provide for the family by the time they graduate from the program, the parents go through a mandatory parenting class, and subsistence business training class and while going through these programs they are also exposed to the gospel.
The children in the program usually stay in our hostel Monday through Friday where their needs food, health, educational and spiritual needs are met, at the end of the week they eventually return home to join their parents, simultaneously through the week the parents go through the various training programs that have been established for them.
The program is expected to last a year except when the goals were not met.
