To develop disadvantaged children into godly Christians for the church and society.
Bethlehem House was started in 2010 with a desire to provide a safe home for orphans and children-at-risk in the community. It is not uncommon to encounter children who face the challenge of neglect and abandonment. They end up being entrusted to guardians and lack opportunities for wholistic, healthy development.
The pastor of Christ Church Banchang has seen many cases of children or youths who have either ran away from home, are being neglected or estranged from their families and have turned to drugs and gangs.
“The children whom I teach in the local schools rarely have both parents around. There is so much brokenness in the society here.”
The pastor feels convinced that the church must do something to care for these children, and as a result of her passion and commitment, Bethlehem House received under it’s protective shelter the first group of children in April 2010.
Bethlehem House currently has 15 children and youths in residence, aged 9 to 17, one full time Christian staff, and a part-time housekeeper.
Bethlehem House is looking for an additional full-time Christian staff to look after the children, and a full-time housekeeping couple to help take care of the premises.
