Child’s Wish Ministry 
provides solid Evangelical Christian education through Bible studies, Sunday services and other church-based activities by partnering with local evangelical churches.

Child's Wish Ministry is currently focusing their attention to the needs of the indigent and impoverished children of the Philippines. Historically in the Philippines, only 66% of the children who start first grade will complete grade six. (60% of the dropouts occur in the first two grades. - Phi. Dept of Education)

More than one million Filipino children ages six to 12 do not attend school. The dropout rates in high school and college are 30% and 70% respectively. Over half of the 21 year olds never finished high school. Most children don't attend school for economic reasons.

Family Circus Children’s Ministry was created by Assembly of God Church missionaries Darrell and Sandy Blatchley in 1993 to produce high impact and joyful methods of presenting the Gospel (#1) to children and (#2) to their families. 


The purpose of the Family Circus is to bring the life and joy of Jesus, combining both discipleship and evangelism, to reach lost children, while ministering to the needs of the child, both spiritual and physical.


Each week five to six thousand people of all ages attend the Family Circus church services held under the ‘Big Top’, a big circus tent pitched in the center of the densely populated “Muslim Friendship Village in Davao City, Mindanao City, PHILIPPINES. Approximately 4,000 of the 6,000 member congregation are children- half of which are malnourished.  More than 1,000 are adults.
