We are members of the local church of Jordan, charged by (Assemblies of God Church) as well as by our passion to serve the spiritual need of the youth overseen by the fostering institutions and orphanages. We aim specifically at introducing them and edifying them in their understanding of their real identity in Christ, and the love extended to them by God. Parallel to their basic needs such as food, housing and clothing that some institutions are gratefully providing.
Our goal is to change what we believe is their misconception of being deprived of status, or of social justice. We aim at immunizing them psychologically, academically and spiritually, and reverting that misconception into an understanding of their real and everlasting value, which will guard them against falling before any anticipated difficulty when leaving the custody of their fostering institutions. This is based on our firm belief; that all men are created in the image of God, and that they are endowed with this dignity. We also believe that, if a person is ignorant of this reality and does not grasp its depth, he will be susceptible to circumstances imposed by a world ignorant of God and His good intentions for mankind. In our Lords words susceptible to “forfeiting the soul”
Our Lord taught us:
“For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul? For what can a man give in return for his soul?”
(Mark 8: 36, 37 ESV)
The group targeted shall be the age of 6-20 years. Our church Diakonia is to device yearly interaction plans and activities involving the personnel as well as the youth, aiming at reinforcing their spiritual needs and their identity in Christ in parallel with their academic and carnal needs that are already offered by these institutions.
This Diakonia will cater also for cooperation and building of trust with the fostering institutions and the persons working directly with the youth. It will provide training and awareness of the need for a balanced approach to providing spiritual along with carnal needs. All this will consider context, psychological needs, stature as well as the realistic available means within the governing laws and regulations of the voluntary work in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan (And any other Arab country).
