CICM Children's Ministries - Lashi Howard
Growing up in India and seeing the children at risk in the villages and tribal areas, Lashi felt a calling towards raising children in the knowledge and love of the Lord Jesus Christ. She attended Johnson Bible College and got her Associate Degree in Bible in 2005. Since returning to India, she has been working with CICM in Children's Ministry. She currently directs the work of the Children's Home which provides shelter to the poor, orphans, needy and at risk.
In 2015, White Flag Church sponsored the planting of a new church, DeFavor Dios Centro Evangelistico (The Favor of God Church) in Santa Elena, Ecuador. Through a partnership with Compassion International and Stadia Church Planting, our members funded the initial construction of the church as well as stepping up to sponsor 200 children in the community! Check out this video to hear all about it!
We now sponsor over 275 children at the onsite development center that meets their spiritual, economic, educational, social and physical needs on a daily basis. This summer we will be sending our fourth mission team for a visit where White Flag members will have the chance to visit their child at the center and in their homes to help further develop the relationships they have developed with their sponsored children.
- If you currently sponsor a child through Compassion, remember to send your child letters on a regular basis. They cherish these letters.
- If you have not sponsored a child but would like to get involved and have the opportunity to visit them one day, follow the link below to view the children in need of sponsorship at The Favor of God Church in Ecuador.
