Speak Up

for those who cannot speak up for themselves.

The Necessity and Urgency of Speaking Up

Our Father's clear command is to SPEAK UP for those who cannot speak up for themselves.  In 1 Corinthians 12, God our Father teaches us that: "HE arranged the members in the Body, each one of them, as HE chose. That there should be no division in the Body, but that the members may have the same care for one another. If one member suffers, ALL suffer together; if one member is honored, ALL rejoice together. Now YOU are the Body of Christ and individually members of it."
When our own bodies hurt and are in great pain, a message goes out through the whole body to send help and protection to the hurting member until it is well.  One of the primary functions of the Body of Christ is to be sensitive to the various needs of the Body, to send out urgent messages when a great injustice occurs and to care for those parts that are hurting the most.  
We at Agape Impact Ministries feel such a burden to SPEAK UP for God's abused and neglected children of the Philippines.  We are voicing the needs of these children but we feel as if our voice is so small and the need is so overwhelming.  Will you help us raise the volume of our voices for these precious children?  Nhan and I will be in the United States over the next year to raise awareness and support for the ministry work of AIM. If your church, Bible study class, home fellowship group or friends have an interest in learning more about AIM's work and how you can partner with us, email us at: kmcdougal@agapeimpactministry.com

God has promised to honor those who speak up for those who cannot speak up for themselves. "RESCUE those who are being taken away to death; HOLD BACK those who are stumbling to the slaughter.  If you say, "Behold, we did not know this," does not He who weighs the heart perceive it?  Does not He who keeps watch over your soul know it & will He not repay a man according to his work?"  Proverbs 24:11-12
The Dream I Cannot Escape

God hears the cries of His precious children. He then communicates that cry to His servants. Over these many years of service in the Philippines, God has communicated so clearly to me, in a dream, the desperate need of these abused and neglected children.

In my dream, I see an unsettled ocean filled with trash everywhere.  Children are trying to sleep and rest as best they can on the little pieces of trash they have found.  Over in the corner is a little precious girl, all alone and scared.  As night approaches, I see these wicked men in boats paddling as fast as they can to this little girl.  They thrust her up into their boats and have their way with her, only to throw her back on her little trash heap as the next boat reaches down to yank her back up.   Over and over this happens through the long night.  And I am helpless in my dream.  I hear God my Father say to me, "That is MY DAUGHTER & YOUR LITTLE SISTER! Do whatever it takes to RESCUE HER."  I cannot explain to you what a burden this continues to be upon my heart.  For years I have heard this cry and have felt such a longing to do whatever I can do for these precious children of God. God has allowed Nhan and I to know this pain of abuse and abandonment and we have an opportunity and desire to rescue and comfort these children. I continue to be burdened with the reality they they are adrift in that sea tonight.  Will you help us in this much needed ministry?  Your work for these children will be rewarded.  God has ensured us that religion that He sees as pure and undefiled is to look after orphans in their distress.  My friends they are in distress.  Will you help us in this urgent time?

Dear AIM Partners,
We realize our only hope comes from God, through the fervent & effectual praying of HIS obedient servants.  "The fervent, effectual prayer of a righteous person has GREAT POWER AS IT IS WORKING."  So often God is waiting on the intensity of our prayers.  Dear friends, please join with us in more fervent & effectual praying and please keep your prayers working. God has answered so many of our request.  There is still so much work to be done.  
  • Above all, pray for the children of the Philippines.  Pray they will be rescued and placed in loving families. 
  • Pray the LORD would place me before hearts that will hear & join us in this vital work.
  • Pray for the times I will be preaching.  Pray the Gospel is heard clearly as I speak up for these Children.  
  • Pray for Westley as he begins his freshmen year at UMHB in Belton, Texas.  
  • Pray for Nhan & I as our nest is empty.  Pray that it will be filled to overflowing with these precious children.
  • Pray for our partnership with Manna Worldwide.
  • Joy's car engine just blew up.  Pray the good Lord would provide a car for her and for Westley.  
Please take a moment to watch Eric Ludy's orphan video.  It is by far the best video on the necessity for orphan care I have ever seen.
