Learning to Give

Those who keep on receiving gifts from others are truly blessed but those who keep on giving are more blessed (Acts 20:35). Yet, for most of our children who are usually on the receiving end of kindness, it is sometimes difficult to believe that the giver could be happier than the receiver. For this reason, the campus church at Hope Training Institute, our center for training street-connected youth, set out on a mission to teach the children what it means to give of your means.

On the afternoon of June 3, the management and staff of the institute received an unusually urgent invitation from the church leaders (also staff of Hope Training Institute) for a “short meeting outside.” To the utmost surprise of the management team, the kids were gathered together behind a lawn mower. It turns out that their weekly contributions at church services had been saved to the point where they could purchase a used Honda lawnmower and donate it to Hope Training Institute. The campus church had also bought enough fuel to fill the mower’s tank for first use, with the promise that the institute would not need to spend out of its budget to use and maintain the mower; our small campus church would continue to bear the cost of fuel and maintenance.

For us at Hope Training Institute, this is a very significant gesture because the campus church is not considered a rich church on the surface and yet, our children and their leaders have demonstrated a richness in character, giving out of their meager means to support Hope Training Institute.
