PAY IT FORWARD PFC MINISTRY

Pay it Forward definition: respond to a person’s kindness to oneself by being kind to someone else.
Paying it forward can also something as simple as offering your time to just talk to someone who needs a friend. Even just a smile can make a difference or even save a life.
• This group is for members of the Chatham Kent and surrounding areas. Any item you no longer use or need, may help another family. Everything in this group is free unless approved by an Admin.
• This is a group for Paying it Forward. At one point or another, many people have required assistance. It could be a need for furniture, clothing, shoes, food, supplies for Infants, Toddlers and Children, sporting goods, services, etc. We help as many people as we can. Almost everyone has items in their homes they no longer need or have a use for. What better way to Pay it Forward than to post your items in this group? It is also a great way to declutter your home. Look in your basements, closets, garages and most importantly your Hearts. No draws or raffles allowed only by admin Lets all Pay it Forward….

     In India we minister to the poor, orphans, lepers, aids patients, widows, unreached people groups, and local pastors. We have built an orphanage, The Praise Fellowship Church Children’s Home, and are currently planning the construction of some churches. We minister to the people by providing food and clothing, medicine, schooling, transportation, financial support and prayer. We regularly visit this nation and minister to the people in person.

Our Orphanage is pictured to the right of this page.  We recently added a second floor to house the additional children that we care for.

Check our ‘Orphans’ page to view our children sponsored and in need of sponsoring.  Also a video for you to enjoy as we ministered in India.  This page is password protected and available only to PFC members.  Please contact the Webmaster at: pfcwebmaster165@gmail.com
