Want to Help?



sandalsPeriodically when folks ask for specific things they can do to help, we encourage them to raise funds for:





Around here, kids wear their sandals until they have holes in the bottom.  And that exposes them to worms and other hazards in the ground that can cause infection and discomfort.

We came up with a promotional tool, a label that can be printed and placed on Pringles cans (or whatever) as a change collector to help the kids. Several churches have used this tool to help collect for this ongoing need.


Right now we are out of sandals though the need is still there. And when we have extra sandals, we are happy to exchange new for old for the kids that come to the services - even before they ask. It’s simply meeting needs.


Perhaps the Lord would say, “When I was shoeless you…” It fits… Whatever you do for the least of these you did it unto me… what a neat Lord to allow us to do things that bless Him.

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.

Please pray for Darrell & Sandy, and the team. God grant them sufficient:

  • Strength,
  • Energy,
  • Wisdom,
  • Knowledge,
  • Discernment,
  • Peace, and
  • Joy - unspeakable and full of Glory!!

Pray for food - spiritual and physical - sufficient to help with the needs of those attending Family Circus.


Pray for supplies, building materials, permits, etc. for current and future needs of Family Circus.


Pray for health and safety for all those involved in the Family Circus mission outreach.
