Not everyone would find a pig to be a good gift. However, children looking toward their future schooling think they are a wonderful gift!
ICCM Philippines have given pigs for children in Bless the Child Ministries, one of its projects in Panagangan, Agusan del Sur. Everyone was excited to see the pigs, especially Ryan and Christina.
Ryan is in the 8th grade. He loves playing chess and solving the Rubik’s cube with his friends. He dreams of becoming an architect someday. His pig can help him save up some money. He enjoys going to ICCM classes. He especially loves to hear Bible stories.
Christina is in the 10th grade. She enjoys playing volleyball with her friends and loves to sing in church. She dreams of becoming a medical technologist someday. Once her pigs has piglets, it will surely be an opportunity for her to save money for college.
Ryan and Christine are two of the first group of beneficiaries for ICCM Bless the Child Ministries’ Pig Project. They hope that through this project other children and families will be able to have an avenue to start a fund for the future of the ICCM sponsored kids and somehow help in the burden of their parents. Who would’ve thought one pig could help fulfill God’s promise for His children!
