There is an overlooked resource in the poorest communities around the world: local churches. We assist them. We are called Living Stones because children build our tomorrow. We are committed to working with local churches to LEND: Love, Educate, Nourish, and Direct our future—these precious children, often overlooked in their poverty.
"Let these little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these." Matthew 19:14
Like Compassion or World Vision, we work with children, families, and communities to help them break the cycle of poverty. The difference is that we work with local believers through local churches: planting churches and changing communities. Each program is designed for maximum impact for that community, but what makes it a Living Stones program is that church leadership is directly involved, there is a strong educational focus, and it meets four times a week.
