Aileen, age 11, says:AileenJelly fish damage    

         I am most thankful for the help of Family Circus – Uncle Darrell & Aunt Sandy who this past month took me to the hospital to help me to go to the doctor after a jelly fish stung me. You saved my life and saved my leg from amputation.


         I’m also thankful to God for my second life that He forgave my sins and gave me a new life.


         I’m also thankful to Family Circus for the food and vitamins (which ALO makes possible) which my brothers and sister also receive and for the free dental. Thanks to AOL for the hundreds of malnourished children that receive weekly food assistance and vitamins.

         I am most thankful that I’m almost done with grade six of elementary school and next year I’ll be in high school.

    I’m thankful to God for giving me a wonderful life for I now have a mama and papa that love and care for me. (She survived an effort at birth of abortion and became a virtual slave, and we were able to rescue her from that situation and provide her a stable loving home.


         I’m thankful for Family Circus giving me an opportunity to be a volunteer minister to help other children, and to be involved in visitation and in helping to distribute food, and praying for the children. I know God has a wonderful plan for my life.

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.
