ZOE Orphan Empowerment Ministry - Rwanda, Guatemala, India
ZOE Ministry transforms the lives of orphaned and vulnerable children from poverty and neglect to self-sufficiency and community within three years. It is quite possibly the best example of whole life transformation through empowerment that is at work in the world today.
First Methodist is a ZOE Hope Companion, sponsoring 1000 children every 3 years on their journey out of poverty. Over the past six years, we have sponsored over 2000 children in Rwanda who are now self-sufficient. Our ZOE class of 2016-2018 includes children in three countries— click on each country below to see pictures and details of their progress.
Each year, we send a mission team to visit our sponsored kids in one of these three countries: Guatemala (2016), India (2017), and Rwanda (2018). Click here for information about upcoming mission trips to these countries.
