Hope On Wheels allows us to reach many children right where they live in the tent settlements on a regular basis. Our mobile truck environment is what we call “a mobile fun truck” that goes from location to location bringing the hope of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to children of all ages. Current issues are addressed depending on children’s specific needs using fun activities like puppet shows, health awareness programs, value-based programs called Character traits, and Bible lessons.
Our Hope on Wheels Club Ministry is focused on building relationships through small groups interested in God’s Word—allowing for more one-on-one time between the kids and our team.
The weekly clubs help the children open up during discussion times and share with the teachers about their struggles, questions, and receive prayer and advice. Through our craft times we have learned that many of the kids have wonderful skills that we want to encourage them to develop. As they grow up, these skills could possibly become their profession or a source of income. The children’s response to these clubs has been overwhelming—even during the “lock down” when we were gathering virtually on Zoom.
