Man Rescues Children of the Slums
Gospel for Asia
For Immediate Release
CARROLLTON, TX (ANS) -- “I have experienced what slum life is like, what it is to be poor and struggling for food,” relates Pastor Martin, a GFA-supported pastor who grew up in the slums of South Asia.
Although he worked hard to escape the abject poverty and began pursuing a career, the Lord called him away from that to serve the poor and needy in this slum.
“People are lacking food; they are lacking clothes; they are lacking all their daily needs.”
“Slum conditions are very pathetic,” Martin says. “Some slum children are living without parents, as orphans. Some are living in sadness. They don't have hope. Who will help them?
“It is very common in slums for the children to abuse each other with filthy words.”
Pastor Martin, who grew up in the slums, returned to serve the poor and needy in Jesus' name.

More than 60,000 children and their families have experienced the Lord's love through Bridge of Hope.
“From the bottom of my heart, I would like to thank you for your dedication. Through your precious life and support, God is using us.” Pastor Martin to Bridge of Hope sponsors
