I have been giving to Every Child Ministries for years. In these economic times every penny counts and I am only giving where my heart tells me. I am sure that giving to ECM is the right choice because they are very responsible in how they use their funds. I would recommend this organization highly.

I became associated with ECM back in 2006 because of their focus on impoverished children in Africa, all in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. SInce that time I have had an opportunity to become a financial supporter of this ministry and to sponsor a child in Africa. The impact of this ministry is greater than it's humble origins and low key website would indicate. Although not a high profile ministry, ECM has had a pivotal and lasting impact in several countries in Africa. Long before Kony became known in the international media, ECM staff were in Africa serving thousands of children who were traumatized by his reign of terror, quietly meeting the spiritual, material, and emotional needs of these chidlren. Dollar for dollar, I know this ministry is working amazing things in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, because it is the power of HIs Spirit and HIs love that are being shared by ECM missionaries and staff. Although I also support other higher profile ministries involving children, ECM is closest to my heart!!!

My husband and I have been giving to Every Child Ministries for many years. ECM is an organization that makes a huge impact on the children and slaves they rescue, comfort and educate. They have built schools, rescued street children and freed many slaves in the time we've known them. It has been great to see the progress of Akua, our sponsored child, through the years. The difference between ECM and much larger organizations will be apparent from the start. It's a much more personal giving. You will feel connected, informed and appreciated. In addition, the devotion, sincerity and tireless effort of all the ECM employees continues to amaze us. We would not be giving if we had the slightest doubt about the integrity of ECM - we stand behind them because you couldn't find people more passionate or concerned about the helpless children and slaves that they serve both physically and spiritually.

Many years ago, while listening to the Christian radio station KLOVE, a DJ with direct experience of Every Child Ministries introduced my husband and I to this organization. He inspired us to donate to this very worthy cause. We have had constant communication and updates on a very personal level with ECM every month for years.

The founders and volunteers at ECM are extremely dedicated and inspired Christians. We know this, because we have received repeated confirmation via emails and letters from both ECM headquarters, ECM missionaries, and our sponsored child. The emails and letters are filled with personal stories, specific prayer requests, the challenges of ministering, and faith, hope, and love. They continue to minister despite many obstacles, and they continue to amaze me. I wish there were more than 5 stars to rate ECM with - that's how much I value their dedication and efforts for the lost and homeless children and slaves. They have impressed me all these years, and I can't recommend ECM enough. Words really can't do ECM justice. Their hearts are about the biggest I've ever known.

The Great!

We have seen the progress our sponsored child has made. We have helped to free slaves. We've read countless communications explaining in great detail the progress, setbacks, plans for the future and prayer requests from ECM headquarters and our sponsored child.

My first thought regarding changes to ECM is an increase in size, but the truth is I have appreciated their relatively smaller size because it has allowed us a much more personal involvement.

We continue to support ECM with enthusiasm. Every visit to their Hebron Headquarters is encouraging. The knowledge, commitment, and dedication on the part of all leaders, employees, and volunteers is obvious. A good work is being done because of them and their dedication to the forgotten children of Africa is evident. We trust that this work can continue to expand as the challenges they are facing and the opportunities they hope to grasp continue to expand. Jim and Marit Wallin, Downers Grove, IL.

We were looking for a non profit organization worthy of our interest. We found it in ECM.

Our first visit to their headquarters was impressive. Operating out of a small frame building in rural Indiana, it was immediately obvious that our donations would not be used for the director's
comfort. pride, or anything else except to serve the children of Africa.

ECM serves children in many ways. The most significant to us is Haven of Hope. This is a home where unwanted children are cared for and educated. They are also taught the love that Jesus has for them through His death, burial, and RESURRECTION. We have sponsored a young girl through ECM and have enjoyed observing her growth and developing love for Jesus. She shares a space on our refrigerator and in our hearts with our own grandchildren.

We strongly support ECM as we feel our donations are used with integrity.

Every Child Ministries works to serve some of the neediest people, especially children, in Africa. The stories behind the people they help are heart wrenching, but the hope these people find in Jesus is beyond comprehension. The ministry works with sponsoring destitute children, freeing and rehabilitating slaves, feeding street children, among other things. They are small and don't always have many resources, but they are very innovative and responcible with what God does provide. They are also very greatful to donors, even for small amounts. Most importantly, the workers have great faith and believe in the power of prayer.

ECM, Every Child Ministries. is hard to describe in a few words. The work that is done to aid children and families in African countries has touched our hearts so deeply that it is a pleasure to volunteer and feel like we are a small part of something God inspired and blessed. Newsletters report new and ongoing projects on a regular basis - from providing schooling and housing to some children, serving warm meals to other street children, to working to stop child traficing and the practice of giving a child to a "priest" and that child becoming a slave for the rest of her life. The Rousters, as directors of the mission, are personal friends who have such integrity that we know any donations given are dollars stretched to provide the maximum benefit to children in desparate situations.

My husband and I have been sponsors of children in Africa through the ECM Mission for many years. It has been a blessing to us to see that the children are attending school, being cared for by loving Christians and will grow to be an asset to their community. Because we know the directors very well as members of the same church, we see the sincerity and dedication they bring to every project that is undertaken.

We have been volunteering at the mission headquarters for several years. As a retired couple there are many opportunities to help out with mailings and fund raisers on an as needed basis. We have met many other workers who share a passion for reaching forgotten and misused children and have grown to love their company.. Although at times it feels like what can one couple do, being a part of something that really is making a difference in the lives of so many is an experience that we will always cherish. We would encourage any one with a heart for children to see how they could get involved.

I've been a volunteer with ECM for about 26 years. One of the reasons I love this ministry is because the directors not only use every donation to it's maximun potential but they do it without wasting anything, or being frivolus. They have very few paid employees, so most everything that is done, is done by volunteer help. The fact that ECM has been around for this many years, trusting in God's faithfulness to provide for every need and lead them each step of the way is a testament to God's love for the African people that ECM serves!

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

Yes, I've learned some computer skills that I didn't know before, and have met many people over the years that I love and call friends. Just seeing the desperate need of others, helps put our needs and wants in better perspective!

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

Investing my time and resources into the lives of precious children that otherwise have no hope makes me feel blessed and humbled!

I have been involved with ECM almost since the start 25 years ago. I have been a volunteer in the past and continue to support ECM with donations, both financial and supplies that are sent to Africa. They are very caring and personally involved with the children they are helping. Presently a group of ladies that I am with are meeting to work on a project that will be sent to encourage the ladies in Africa. I like that a very high percentage of the donated funds are used directly in Africa.

John & Lorella Rouster are wonderful examples of sharing and demonstrating the love of Christ to others. They don't just minister to the many people groups of Africa, but live their lives as caretakers of those who are image barriers of God - everyone!! The countless times that they have personally sacrificed to give and pepare to help others to give of their time, talents, and monies when available to be used as tools to carry and show he love of Chirst to others is what they do and what ECM is all about. They reach the lost for Christ by showing His love and care and sacrifice for us on the cross as they sacrifice daily to serve our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To have had the privilige to serve with and to be ministered to by John and Lorella through these many years has been a blessing to us and our entire family. When they ar state-side the minister in the local church at Hillside Community Church and our grandchildren are now the benefactors of their continued love and devotition to sharing and being the hands and feet of Christ. They are missionaries "as they go" they have always been a "6" on a scale of 1-5 with five being the highest. .Ted Herndon
