Mission Update from One More Child

Every week, the leadership and staff of One More Child come together for prayer and devotion to celebrate the encouraging progress in our ongoing mission to serve vulnerable children and struggling families, all for the glory of God.

Here is a glimpse into the recent good news, activities, and accomplishments at One More Child:

Anti-Trafficking

One of our Anti-Trafficking clients, whom we started serving at 15 years old, recently graduated with a master’s in social work. We are grateful to the numerous staff members who steadfastly supported this client over the years. The client’s journey with One More Child led her to find faith in Jesus, and we anticipate a promising future for her!

The Hillsborough Anti-Trafficking team has recently been busy with speaking events, educating attendees about human trafficking and One More Child’s work. We also participated in the No More event, highlighting human trafficking realities.

Additionally, the Hillsborough team is gearing up for an AT 101 session with 12-18-year-olds that will cover topics like trafficking, internet safety, and teen dating violence.

Global

A group of seniors from Idlewild Baptist Church in Tampa recently served on a domestic mission trip at our Lakeland campus, making a big impact by packing food and assisting with distribution. Currently, a team from the University of Mary Harden-Baylor is in the Dominican Republic, led by Pastor Chris Kynard of Linden Baptist Church. A team of medical students from Southeastern University Science & Nursing is engaged in various activities, including feeding and children’s ministry, as well as assisting local hospitals and clinics.

Three more mission teams from Baylor are gearing up for missions to Costa Rica and Guatemala this month. Thank you for praying for our teams!

Events

This week, there is excitement in Bradenton as Guardian Angels in Southwest Florida, along with One More Child staff and donors, celebrate the completion of our Bradenton campus. This achievement includes eight homes and the Paul and Tony Azinger Compassion Center. Despite reaching this milestone, Guardian Angels continues to seek more opportunities to impact the Bradenton community.

Meanwhile, in Tampa, a kickoff event highlights the ongoing work on the Tampa campus.

As Mother’s Day approaches, One More Child emphasizes its importance for their cause. They urge prayers for the hundreds of churches hosting Mother’s Day offerings to support vulnerable children and families. We are grateful, in particular, for the support of our staff in promoting our mission during this important fundraising season. The offerings made during this time will impact untold numbers of vulnerable children and struggling families.
