David M Wilkerson, Visited this ministry last night of stay in Philippines.
Absolutely 100% can support. I can recommend anyone giving money to this ministry, that the money goes for nothing but support for people in great need, please ask me anything
 

Glenn F——- Hope House Cebu is not just another souless charity organization operating in the slums of Mambaling. Children that live in the most wretched poverty and danger are afforded safety, new clean clothes, rice for their families. Electricity bills are paid so that a shack can have lights and children that would not even be allowed in a fast food place are taken for ice cream and the little extras that we do not give a second thought to. They are treated like creations of inestimable value and not just generic”pagan babies” to assuage Western guilt. Hope House gets them off the streets and feeds them the gospel of Jesus Christ-the most valuable beauty and power in the universe. On the HHC site you can see frequent pictures of your “children” and form relationships….touch lives and do mercy you never thought possible. If Christ’s love constrains you to act in love……consider Hope House Cebu…….

— WAS HERE 10 DAYS in September 2019 

My observation of Hope House Ministry:
God called me to go to Hope House in Cebu City, Cebu, Philippines to share His love with them and to see first-hand the work they are doing.
The ministry is truly one of HOPE for the hopeless, helpless, and impoverished people in the inner city slums of Cebu City. They provide for the basic needs of children and adults, giving food, clothing, shelter for some, and medical assistance who otherwise would have none. Jesus Christ is the foundation as the only true HOPE of seeing lives changed.
David Wilkerson, the founder, along with his wife and her sisters, have a genuine love and compassion for these kids.
In this extreme poverty, there is much demonic oppression and Hope House is continually attacked in various ways. In the past 2 years or so the attacks have been fierce against the ministry and against David’s own character. Many donations were lost and the children have suffered because of this. David and his helpers were very open and transparent with me and I saw no evidence of any of the lies that were spoken against them. I believe they are the real deal! They continue to go forward, trusting God to make a way for the ministry to grow to help more kids and families.
I want to make you aware of the great need in this place. They need financial help — it costs so much to meet the needs of the people who have nothing! Imagine if you had no food and no way to get some!!
If you sense the Holy Spirit convicting you to give a donation or to sponsor a child, you can give through the link below.
To sponsor a child, just type in $30 in the amount section and type “sponsor a child” in the comment section. You will send this amount each month. You may give a donation for any amount at any time for the general expenses. (If you don’t want to support the “gofundme” site, you can change that amount to less or even $0.) Please help to save a life!!

Carl Henderson. ( Carl was here several years )
Let me confirm the truth of your comments. I have seen so many missionaries come to the Philippines and say they were there for 3-years or one year and one couple even said they were staying for life and they were all gone in less than 1 1/2 years and two couples were gone after just 6-months,… And none of them had hard slum ministries in the squatter areas like you do,… You are living with the people which is very hard physically and emotionally. I would do that for a few weeks or a month at a time and I always went home sick and needed a couple of weeks to recover from the dehydration, fatigue, rashes, colds, asthma, bronchitis or pneumonia, etc,.. Several times I ended up in the hospital and I am an old soldier used to hard living in Africa and the heat of the southwest border of the USA. Most people can not even stand the stench, flies, cockroaches everywhere, let alone the tasteless food (tasteless by American standards), or the giant rats, mosquitos, air pollution, stifling, unrelenting, sweltering heat and humidity. I would soak three or four shirts a day in sweat if I could change them but mostly I wore one soaking wet shirt all day long and carried a sweat towel, to wipe sweat from my face… As I said, the stench and the heat have most people grossed out and exhausted in less than three days. Even our Filipino missionaries who came from other places in the Philippines were shocked at life and the conditions in the slum and squatter areas,… You have my respect David M Wilkerson!

Touch1000Lives is a UK registered charity and we started sponsoring children at Hope House Cebu about 6 years ago, we weren’t the first but we were early supporters. As we are required to verify that the intended beneficiaries are indeed being helped, we watched very closely how the first child, and then the second, changed dramatically for the better once they were sponsored. I have individual photo albums of all our sponsored children on my facebook page stretching all the way back. Take a look and see the children growing up happy and healthy. Once we saw the benefits we ramped up the number we sponsor gradually to the current 18. You can see all their stories in those albums and on the Touch1000Lives group page, which I use as a newsfeed for anything the charity supports. Again, you can look back all the way over the years there. All the evidence is that David and his team at Hope House are very effective supporters of a large number of local children and families. They deserve our support, and the children do indeed have a hope and a future, which they otherwise would not have, as a result of the support they receive. As David says, the older children have now completed high school and are in college. This alone is a major achievement bearing in mind where they’ve all come from. We will be increasing our monthly child sponsorship support

One man’s journey from maximum security prison in USA, to rescue the forgotten children of the Philippines.
By Dean Weir on October 10, 2017
This guys life story is simply amazing. from his difficult teenage years to maximum security prison. From Salvation to a determination to rescue sex trafficked and homeless children and impoverished families in the Philippines. Through his selfless work David has endured turmoil and personal hardship to bring the love of Jesus Christ into an area of extreme poverty. On a shoestring budget, David, his wife and a small team of trusted locals have brought hope and kindness to many children who had no hope, and rescued many from a life of exploitation. In Hope House, David has established a place of refuge and provision for those in fear and need. The story is a genuine testimony to the Grace of God. ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Ut elit tellus, luctus nec ullamcorper mattis, pulvinar dapibus leo.

HOPE HOUSE CHURCH CEBU From Andy Curtis who visited our place here today

And let us be concerned about one another in order to promote love and good works,
Hebrews 10:24

Its been an amazing honour to see the work Jesus Christ is doing through David Wilkerson and his wife Aileen with the poor in their part of Cebu.

Great to hear the testimonies of what God has done , and my hope and prayer is that many more individuals and churches get behind this much needed ministry.
This rough and tough place needs a rough diamond like David to survive here, it aint for the weak hearted and as i soon learnt David is a diamond in the rough.

I hope some day God will allow me the honour to return there soon . Rest assure the haters will keep on hating Hope House because religious people hate the move of God and of the Holy Spirit. Jesus experienced much the same with the pharisees so we shouldnt expect anything less when we obey God’s calling on our lives. .

Duane Cogburn and his wife Anita visited in early Feb 2019. Also visting was Ed Anderson. They are from Sierra Vista Arizona.  Bro, Duane said “We praise God for what He is doing through David at Hope House” .

Stuart Graham and his wife Laarnie live here. 

Stuart is a pastor 

 If you would like to support Hope House by sponsoring a child on a regular basis or with one off gifts, please contact David. He will be only too happy to explain the different ways you can give online. This is a ministry I support and I can fully endorse it as the genuine article. The vast majority of the money raised goes directly to help the children. There is no top heavy administration and no large salaries to pay for. It’s all about the kids..

Frederick  and Grace  visited us not long ago and was accompanied by his friend Grace who is a nurse in Manila. They went with us visiting people in poverty areas. Frederick pointed out that we ourselves had been living very modestly in our rental place here, and commented on our rat and roach problem. Our house was flooded when they arrived and they stayed at the outreach center.

Frederick gave a wonderful sermon at our bible time, and several answered the call to receive Jesus. Grace was very kind and caring visiting the people who were sick in the slum areas. They both have a wonderful and caring attitude. Frederick and his fiancé Grace visited us earlier this year…  This was one of his posts about it:

“feeling rough only 12 hours sleep since Wednesday , but life could be worse ,am in slums in Cebu with a Christian ministry , walking to homes through flooded streets full of raw sewage , ,last night I was at home of david and Aileen who run the ministry they live very humbly in the slums also ,was in there home and rats run over your feet in the floor and the cockroaches I mistook for mice they were that big , seen big rat in the toilet this morning he ran off as I walked in ,and rats certainly must not came out to were I was trying to sleep on the floor with my very loud snoring for the few hours I slept will post picts next week will be an interesting day today as we do outreach and meet the people of the slums , “

“I was in Cebu Philippines in January helping Hope house Christian org. Hope house rescued 5 young girls from sex traffickers”

Grace Nolasco

Frederick and Grace @ Hope House

 the ministry is worth every single penny , it all goes on the poorest and down trodden , and they get the message of salvation

Debbie Nowak

19 hours ago via mobile The poverty here in Cebu is waaaay more than I ever imagined! David himself lives in a home that is nothing fancy that’s for sure. I visited a home today and asked the family “Where do you sleep?” They pointed to the bare plywood on the floor(family of 5 i believe) sleeping on a floor that’s @ 6 feet by 6 feet. David Wilkerson often times posts pictures of kids with new clothes and you don’t really get to see the poverty they live in those new clothes and food David provides TRULY gives them hope and makes them feel more human! Thank you to all the sponsors your money helps these children feel love and accepted. I have seen the children here that live right next to David who do not have sponsors they were barefoot, in rags, digging in the trash! They live 50 yards away! Hope house IS MAKING A HUGE DIFFERENCE!!!! ♥♥♥ Debbie

Now about an hour ago Well I’m off to bed soon, it’s 10:30pm here in the Philippines. Today we went to go feed the kids in the “Alaska” area 180 peanut butter sandwiches. It may not seem like much but to those children it was like gold. No smiles on their faces until they received that sandwich. These children were dressed in rags, no shoes on their feet, and walking in scum. Babies were walking around naked, but you know what? They were SO HAPPY to feel loved even if for just that moment. The smiles on their faces make me cry thinking about them. Hope House provides so the children in this are a don’t look like that. Hope house kids TRULY have hope, not in the clothes and rice given tot hem but in Jesus Christ! David Wilkerson shares Jesus with these kids ALL THE TIME! I love to hear him talk about Jesus. He truly has a heart for the Lord and really loves these kids. He lives no extravagant life by any means. I have seen with my own two eyes. He truly cares for them and shares the love of Jesus with those around Him.

Jonathan and Angie Cornwall. 

We have been to Hope House twice and this is a genuine ministry. My wife is from Cebu and she speaks the language speaks the language​. We are regular supporters of Hope House. When I heard the children sing I cried. The presence of God is at Hope House . David and Ailene live a very modest life.

 

Jeff has been here several times and his wife Karin  has also visited us 

We have been sending financial support to David since 2013.  David, the founder, felt the Lord leading him to actually live in the slums, with the goal of bringing the Kingdom of God to a very needy community. As a result, lives have been changed and, I truly believe, many children have been protected from the human traffickers who prowl neighborhoods like this in search of easy targets desperate to believe their lies about a better life.

This is really a no-frills, low-budget ministry that seeks to change lives through long-term relationships. David has gone through a lot of trials and missteps along the way, he’s quick to admit, but is learning and doing as best he can with the limited resources at his disposal. David, along with his wife Ailene, are truly living humbly—I know I couldn’t do what he does, apart from a miraculous outpouring of grace!

I’m having a great time interacting with the kids!

 

Patrick Cole   former USAF 

I visited David and his wife Ailene with the purpose of making a video about their ministry. I made the video and David has posted it. This is a real ministry that I support, and I hope to be able to return. As I pack my bags on this early Tuesday morning here in the Philippines, it’s hard for me to believe the past 3 weeks are already over. As I head back to Japan, I’ll definitely have the kids and David’s ministry on my mind and prayers. I got to interview some of the mothers and kids as well about how this ministry has affected, and in many ways, changed their lives. God and the Gospel is moving in the Philippines. The poverty here is real, but not just physical needs, they have spiritual needs as well. David’s hope house for the kids provides that immensely in the spiritual darkness much of this place is in. Patrick continues to support us as of November 2018

My name is Joe Prusac, I am 48 years old I am visiting HopeHouse Church from Australia.  
I have been following Hope House for some time and I had a dream when I was in my teens to do missionary work.. 
 I feel like I was sent by God to tell the true story of Hope House.  David is a true inspiration. He is selfless, caring and kind. What he has done and is doing is beyond human.
 I spoke to many people here and they love David, and the children love David. Everywhere David has taken me, children run up to him. They love David.  
 I don’t think he knows what he has done here and I dont think he knows how much he has affected people around the world. David also makes people laugh and has a tremendous ability to reach people through humor. I heard some of his story from the past, and I think I have met a man who was truly called by God, more than anyone I have met in my life. Both David and Ailene are pure souls. 
I also have seen David giving and he doesn’t photo it. There is a lot of giving going on here that nobody sees. There is also a lot of teaching going on here. 
The children are so happy here at Hope House and they feel safe here. Children are in fact being trafficked here and I have seen this for myself. David also puts himself at risk in places that he goes. People are being shot in those areas. This place is so important. It is needed. If God were not in this, David would have been gone a long time ago. Ive spoken to many children who are in school because of Hope House. I have spoken to young people in college who tell me they are in college because of David. 
 This is the work of God here. The children here need help .

 

Glenn S.    I have been to Hope House twice and I support what they are doing. I met many of the children and they were happy with Hope House , as well as the adults. We went out feeding on outreach and it is a very eye opening experience. They need our help. 

Ralph M. Wells Indeed, I have preached there many times and David is the “real deal!”

Ed Anderson: I had the opportunity to visit David and Hope House this year. David and I grew up in the same denomination. I was in Arizona and David was in New Mexico. David came to Arizona and went to college in Tempe at ASU. As I told the group here when I spoke, I knew David 40 years ago and he was a bad man. If God can change David, he can change anyone. It was amazing to see him after all these years and more amazing to see what God is doing through David, and even more amazing knowing the David before and the David today. Amazing Grace. They truly need your help, and it was obvious to us That David puts the children first in his life.

Abby

I am very thankful that God sent Tito David to my country and for helping me. I graduated high school and am in college and working. I woke up one day here with Jesus in my heart. Tito David also helped build a house for me after our house burned down in the fire here. 

Jenny

I am so thankful to God for helping me. I graduated high school. Tito David also built me a house.  We also learned bible and praise Jesus I am saved. 

Shaina Mae

Shaina Mae.  Without Hope House I dont know where I would be today. I am in high school and honor student. Thank you to God Jesus 

Edelle Grace

I am one of the original Hope house girls from 2010. I was raised by my grandmother who passed before I finished high school. Tito David paid for all my schooling and much more. I am so very grateful. 

Jhoella

I have been sponsored at Hope House for 10 years. I am very thankful to have had the opportunity given to me by God. I am an honor student and also help Tito David at Hope House. I help with children’s bible and also English.

Debbie Nowak 
I personally was at Hope House in 2013 for 13 days! I personally seen and talked to David everyday. I seen all the kids that David posts and none of them had nothing negative to say about David! I was even alone with them and they had every opportunity to tell me anything they wanted and nothing but good things came from their mouth! Jealousy runs rampant in poor countries so some kids if they don’t get exactly what another child does they spread rumors. David does his best to help those around him and even people that he sees on his walks along the way. People in the streets would even smile at David when he went by. If he was such a terrible human being I would have known when I was there. David might not do things exactly how another person might do things over there but that does not mean those rumors are true! He is doing the best he can with the money that is given to him for those children! He does not by any means live a lavish lifestyle. What you see him post is what he lives. I seen it with my own eyes

Kathryn  David and Ailene minister to children and their family members if they have any, in a country where the all year round hot climate is conducive to the homelessness. This is a country that suffers extreme unemployment, total social breakdown, the poorest of poor with close to nil Social Services. Where the family nucleus is no longer honoured and children suffer one of the highest rates of sexual exploitation in the world! A country with a social system that does not see children as a precious gift from God. But David does!!
David’s ministry is all about the CHILDREN.
I have not met him personally…but I’ve had countless conversations with David via messenger over the last 5 years and supported him and believe 100 % he’s doing what he says and shows he’s doing over Facebook. He’s also supported by a rather established church out of the USA called Heaven’s Family from where Jeff Trotter comes (see comments for Jeff’s churches Web site), and is sent to the Philippines at least once a year or so to see David’s ministry because of their contribution. I also have a Facebook friend Noreen Lowis out of Pennsylvania, whom I’ve travelled internationally with, who also vetted David thoroughly before supporting his ministry.
But David’s biggest supporter and sponsor is Dil Marple-Horvat out of the UK and has a group also on FB called Touch 1000 Lives. Please view and vet his FB site and pictures. When I first checked David out on FB, I checked Dil out and his pictures. It was on Dil’s personal site that I first viewed the pictures in the category entitled ” Hell on earth”. Seeing those pictures of the children is what sold me, and not only did I sponsor a child, my house church has chosen David’s ministry to give our offerings to every other month. It truly is a front line ministry for children that JESUS believes in..

BJ

Hi everyone, hope you’re doing well. This is the mission in the Philippines, Hope House, that I have been involved with for about 8 years now, by supporting the mission directly AND by supporting a young man by the name of Kyle (I’m sure you’ve seen the pics I’ve posted of him my FB page through the years). He’s grown into a strong, smart young man who loves the Lord. You would be so impressed at how many young men and ladies have gotten thru high school and college all thanks to the wonderful supporters…but more so for David Wilkerson. He and his lovely wife Ailene give them the opportunities to do so. Keeps them clean, fed, gets them the school uniforms they need, and the books, paper, pencils & pens,etc. He has put his heart and soul into Hope House. So many BELIEVE in his mission, I do – always have ALWAYS WILL.
As a side note: Both my daughter’s were VERY ‘upset’ years ago when I first told them what I was doing, sponsoring a 5 yr old little boy monthly. I was so proud and happy to love this little boy and help him. Instead of sharing my excitement and basically pure JOY!! they made it quite clear that they were “less than impressed” (how can you do this when you have money issues????) Because my friends, because a child is suffering, CHILDREN are suffering. And my $30/month sponsors Kyle and provides for his needs. If I do come up short one month? David covers for me…NO CHILD is left alone or unfed. Praise God.
It’s the holiday season my friends so I ask if you might have an extra $5 or $10 to send to this MOST WORTHY cause, would you please send it? Right now, with your help, they are completing the 3rd and 4th floors of a new building they’ve been working so hard to finish, that will be used for Church, School, and the multitudes of get togethers planned by the Church.
David is SAVING CHILDREN from the streets – the worse is
Human Trafficking, yes ‘bad men’ pull these young girls from the streets and sell them to ‘other bad men’ who do unspeakable things to them. Only to be returned to be sold to some ‘other bad man’…my sweet Lord they need your help.
Then there’s the hunger and, once clean, and in nice clean clothes, with a FULL belly…David teaches them how VERY MUCH God, and our saviour Jesus Christ…LOVES THEM. How MUCH He loves them and how He will never EVER leave them, they will NEVER be alone again. David has saved HUNDREDS and HUNDREDS of children, some just young babies lying on a sheet of cardboard on the sidewalk..no cover over their small head, no blanket for their young bodies. Would you please help? You and I have SO much to be thankful for, would you give these babes a reason to be thankful also? This is a solid, accredited mission, papers on record.
Thank you so VERY much for considering my request. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! 💘 LOVE you!! Give at the link below… thank you

Patrick Moore ,

I have been a Hope House supporter since 2012, when I felt convicted by God to begin donating. I have been a monthly donor since then, and continue to be one to this day.

Over the years I have been amazed at the sheer volume of posts, thoughts, Bible verses, photos and videos documenting the journey there. I mean literally tens of thousands of photos that I have seen personally, as well as thousands of videos, of which there are so many I have been unable to watch them all. In addition I am friends with others on Facebook who have visited there and personally witnessed their ministry in action. They are some of my most valued Facebook friends, and I trust what they have written about Hope House. In addition, I am friends with over 20 of the children/adults who have been part of Hope House’s success, some since 2013. I have watched them grow in the photos from children into beautiful young men and women of God. Their stories and lives are a testimony to what God is doing there. They all tell the real story – the story of a man who has sacrificed EVERYTHING for them, and for God. 

It is my opinion that there is no possible way that all of what I have seen could have been faked. Not by a long shot. And the posts speak for themselves – EVERYTHING there is well-documented down to the last detail. That is how David earned my trust and my support, and I will continue to support this ministry.

 

Jonathan Rose: The Hope House children are different than the children around that area. They have better clothes, eat better and are cared for . Jonathan stayed at our house for about a month .  

Rhechelle Tabada Abadilla

I graduated High School and I am in college now thanks to Hope House. They supported me all the way through. I am also a Christian. I praise the Lord for all He has done here for so many.

David Servant 

A Real-Life Bank Robber

Dear Friends,

I don’t know too many people who have robbed a bank at gunpoint, stolen $40,000 in the process, and who have never been caught. In fact, I can only think of one person, and I’ve spent the last couple of days with him in Cebu, Philippines. Thankfully he’s undergone some transformation since his bank robbing days of 38 years ago. And although he was never caught for his bank robbery, he was eventually sentenced to 15 years of prison for other crimes. ( note from david Wilkerson: sentence was reduced down from 99 years) 

His name is David Wilkerson, and he came to the Philippines in 2009

David found the Lord after he had already tied the knot with his beautiful and culturally-Catholic Filipina wife, Ailene, and his first convert was her. ( note from david Wilkerson : Actually, I had surrendered to God before leaving the states ) He never returned to live in the U.S., but now resides in the same Cebu slum where Ailene grew up, along with their own two young children. If I didn’t believe in Jesus, I would think that David is paying for all his former sins by where he lives. His neighborhood is practically indescribable to those of us who live in developed nations, because there is nothing to which to compare it.

Catherine Villaver 

Tito David and Hope House helped me all through school since elementary school I am in high school now. I am very thankful. Tito David also built a house for me twice. He built one house and it was lost in the fire here , and so he built another one after that.  Thank you Dil Horvat for never giving up on David. You helped so many children here. We hope to meet you someday so we can say thank you. 

Thank you Hope House for all. Keeshan 

Partially translated from the Cebuano to English

I am Adel and I am the sister in law of Tito Dave. I was saved at the Hope House. When Tito Dave first came here we did not know what he was doing. I was just worried about food and material things, but I helped with the cooking and I helped Tito Dave because he gave me money to help. I also started to help because I liked to be a part of things. Sometimes Tito Dave would come and tell me that I did not love God, and I was not really a Christian and he would tell me I was hiding from church pretending to be busy. When I was saved, I was sick with a liver problem, and the doctor said that I was going to die. Tito Dave came to me in the hospital and he also paid for me there. He talked to the doctor. He said to me, well it looks like you might really die, I talked to the doctor. I started crying and said I dont want to die, I have a daughter and son. Am I really going to die? and Tito Dave said, I think its time Adel to surrender to God, and give your live to Jesus. Only God can help you now. I don’t have the power to heal you, but God can do it. Tito Dave left to go home, and I did not sleep. In the night I cried out to God to save me and let me live and let me be with my children. I cried all night. Tito showed up the next day and told me I heard you got saved last night, and I think you are healed, why don’t you call the doctor in and have them check up on you. That night before I was saved and healed by the mighty Lord Jesus Christ and I will be a Christian all my life.

Tito David paid for the schooling for many children here including myself. We also learn bible and now I am a Christian. I am very thankful that God send Tito David to Cebu 

Sandra Ort

David, The Lord has given you great wisdom.It is a rubber hits the road ministry, a place most fear to enter, doing a great work, feeding, clothing and educating kids. He doesn’t leave the kids and go home at 5

 

                                                           

Jonathan Rose 

 I see a big difference in Hope House Cebu kids compared to the other kids I see, and have met in Cebu.The Holy Spirit is with these people    ( Jonathan stayed at our house here one month)

 

 

Mike Morton

 i have known david and hope house’s ministry for some time now. there are few ministries i will call out and declare as totally legitimate… and david’s ministry is one of those. david does an amazing work, he serves as the hands of Jesus bringing love, comfort and ministry to the lost and broken… he has the heart of Christ that breaks over the tears of the people in cebu… he doesn’t just talk the talk in order to bring in donations… he walks the walk… and even when donations and support are nearly non existant he continues to minister, giving sacrificially of his own self and resources that the love of Christ might be shown to the people around him.he serves the Lord in humility and honesty, in the power of the Holy Spiirt and demonstrates the true love of God.I AM PROUD TO STAND WITH AND SUPPORT HOPE HOUSE IN CEBU PHILIPINES, AND THE WORK THAT DAVID IS DOING THERE.

Donna Quillen

 I love your ministry. The courage it took to walk away from comfort to save lost children and families is noteworthy. That kind of courage comes only from obedience to God. Stand fast in your calling. I count it a blessing to sow into Hope House-Cebu

Vickie Webb

PRECIOUS BROTHER, I LOVE JESUS’ HEART THAT DWELLS IN YOU..I’M GRATEFUL& HONORED TO BE A PART OF HIS REMNANT..YOU FIT RIGHT IN TOO, FOR YOU ARE ONE OF THE PECULIAR PEOPLE THAT HE WAS TALKING ABOUT RAISING UP FOR THE END TIME HARVEST. .I KNOW WE’LL BE MEETING IN THE FIELDS SOON AND IN THE MEANTIME, MY PRAYERS SHALL COVER YOU AND HIS MINISTRY THROUGH YOU,..I’M LIVING ACCORDING TO 1CORINTHIANS 4. .AS JESUS CHRIST INSTRUCTED ME TO DO, DAILY BY HIS GRACE, EMPOWERED BY  HIS LOVE& SPIRIT.

Nadine Lourens 

 Clearly the hand of God is upon you David Wilkerson Praise God for everything that He is doing there and thank you for being obedient to God and His calling on your life. I pray protection, blessing and favor over you and your family and I pray that God will continue to meet your needs and the needs of all those that He places in your care.

Nancy R ipley

I am blessed to know that someone is willing to sacrifice their whole life to live in a place few would and spend their sweat and tears and anointing to wipe a tear from a childs eyes and feed them a piece of bread with peanut butter on it while big obese americans complain

 

Cathy Mack

David, I love how you post so many things about the kids and people at Hope House. That really keeps us all connected!!! Thanks!

Daniel Harbottle

 I see evidence of a powerful army of young kids untainted by religious Christianity, filled with the Holy Spirit and freed from things that were there to pull them down into perpetual misery. Mis dos centavos..

Don Hargrave

 I know a lot of comfortable pastors that are just going through the motions!You my friend are working for Jesus 24/7 on the Mission field. May God grant you many souls. You are appreciated and loved as a wonderful servant of the Lord. May the GOOD LORD favor you and your loving wife with a double portion of His love and grace.  Pastor Don D.Hargrave

Jennifer Bauman ·      The children of Hope House Cebu are happy, healthy, and they have been given hope thru Jesus Christ. There are not even words to describe how blessed I have been being a sponsor for Lezel  and watching the lives of the children at Hope House Cebu and children in the area, as well as families, thriving with the love and provision of God on a daily basis. God has not forgotten these children…they will always be cared for and loved! David Wilkerson has the heart of God, and keeps everything together. If you request something for one of the kids, he will do it and send you either pictures or videos…that impresses me. He has done without so the kids could eat, have clothing, medical treatment,etc…Being a sponsor and a part of Hope House Cebu has changed my life! I encourage and challenge anyone reading this to go to the website and find a child to sponsor…invest intheir life, and God will invest in yours!    on Wednesday

Amada Cimine        Keep up the good works,God will supply your needs.

      I think it is a great thing that you David Wilkerson 11 and others are doing for these children. When you are used by God to be his hands and feet and go where he has sent you how can it be wrong. I thank God when someone helps one of God’s little children. I think God is in Heaven now and smiling 🙂 about what y’all are doing. God Bless You All!

Patty Denney 

What a blessing your ministry is to me David, watching it grow, and seeing the happy facesof the children is such a blessing.. Thank you for devotion.. God Bless You!!

Please share this page with your family and friends. God is doing great things through David Wilkerson. Many children’s lives have been changed by the saving power of Jesus Christ. At Hope House  not only are hundreds of children being feed and clothed each day but their precious spirits are being feed the living Word of God. These children once had no hope. They lived in unthinkable living conditions and because brother David hearkened to the call of God and people like you and me join in and help, their hope is restored. I’ve been prevledged to help by sending donations for the last several years. I’ve seen so many of these children’s lives change through the pictures and videos that are posted. Many testimonies from people like you and I that have went there and helped can be read. There are so many more that need our help unfortunately. Please kindly consider being a part of this amazing ministry. I encourage each and everyone to go to his page and read what great things are happening with these children. God loves a cheerful giver and even a cup of water given to a precious child, God considers it as if you gave it to Him.

Robert Whosoever Mendez

Brother David I just want to say im very encouraged by your faith and the passion you have for helping others.Watching you throughout the time we’ve been friends on Facebook has made me examine my own life as a new Christian.So thank you for being awesome in Christ.

Jeff Trotter 

Spent my first full day at Hope House, a startup ministry in the slums of Cebu,Philippines. David, the founder, felt the Lord leading him to actually live in the slums,with the goal of bringing the Kingdom of God to a very needy community. As a result, lives have been changed and, I truly believe, many children have been protected from the human traffickers who prowl neighborhoods like this in search of easy targets desperate to believe their lies about a better life.This is really a no-frills, low-budget ministry that seeks to change lives through long-term relationships. David has gone through a lot of trials and missteps along the way, he’s quick to admit, but is learning and doing as best he can with the limited resources at his disposal. David, along with his wife Ailene, aretruly living humbly—I know I couldn’t do what he does, apart from a miraculous out pouring of grace!I’m having a great time interacting with the kids !Jeff Trotter You have a gift for teaching the people here so that they understand  ( Jeff Trotter hasvisited us twice here at hope house cebu)

Mary F

 Thanks David, been doing a lot of praying for you and the children and believing the Lord is going to see that the children have some decent place to live, I have seen in the spirit a nice home for them, nice facilities, no rats, but a beautiful placefor His children, just know they are plenty of us that are praying and believing for great things for the children . Keep the faith, knowing that your work is not in vain. Yoursister in Jesus.

Mandy Branham

 i suggested David Wilkerson as a friend, he is an awesome man of GOD, and the work he does is amazing to say the least, i sponsor a child from Cebu, Angela, and it is so rewarding, please add David and check out the work he is doing, and maybe even sponsor a child 🙂 hope to see you the next time i am in, my teeth look AWESOME 😀

Angie Tipdas 

My heart is for these kids, I was there and I witness how the kids are loved even their families experience blessings from the support. I am supporting this community and praying for them. 3 houses were built and thank you for your support. Families that were so poor got the benefits of the housing, and many testimonies I heard from the people who got the help, how God does miracles

Leah Lani Garcines Tips   Hope House Cebu and Mr. David Wilkerson is indeed a blessing to many.. to the kids, to the mothers, to everyone..a lot of family were sheltered, fed and clothed..indeed God uses appointed people for ministries like this, and what captures my heart is the unstoppable  grace of God and David’s loyalty and devotion to the Lord that no matter what happens, he has this instinct to never stop helping the less fortunate..he has the heartbeat of God that sounds “peo-ple..peo-ple..peo-ple” and I know that God wants us also to have this heartbeat…

Rhonda Yarbrough

Well..i am keeping youall in prayer and I hope you feel better soon.Hug my babies for me…..I will talk to you soon.Never give up

Monica Cardenas 

it is wonderful to be able to see what the kids do almost everyday. Thanks David for al lyour hard work!

Wendy DeWitt Jankauskas

I will be sharing many of David’s posts because people don’t realize how bad this problem is. I know this is not in the states but it really doesn’t matter. These are children that are sold into the sex trade every day. It breaks my heart. Hope House has helped many of these children and strives to get them to a better life. They have school, Bible school, safe places to play, food and medical help when finances are available. . They are included in much of the building and progress of Hope House. They are given clothes, school supplies and some have already gone on to college. Many go out to minister and bring others to the safety of Hope House. David, goes without much of the medical care he needs. He is an American that was called to help these children (within his heart). I sponsor a young boy named Charles. It costs $30 a month. That’s it. We spend more on coffee. Such a small amount to get a young child to saftey. I chose to have the payments sent regularly so I don’t have to do anything and am emailed receipts. On occasion, I send more if I’m able. David often tries to get families off the street and into homes. You can’t believe what the homes look like. I will be posting pictures. I am truly hoping even one of my friends can help. Whether you can or can’t, I wish you love and blessings.

Donna Baukat  

David, may God bless you and protect you with his strength, wisdom and discernment. You must remain there to help the children. Your ministry is uniquely called for being the hope for the kids. Hope House is blessed by your faithfulness. God bless you! In the name of Jesus, you ALL are protected!! AMEN

We had a wonderful vacation in Cebu Philippines. Love visiting with the family and friends. I got to go see my good friend David M Wilkerson of Hope House Cebu. That is truly a wonderful ministry. Looking forward to our next trip in 2018

Mike Morton

 david has proven himself to be the greatest of saints…in that he is a ‘fool for Christ”… in the same league as jim elliot. he has abandoned all that we in our comfortable homes call “success” and has seen the needs of the children in cebu. and he has gone mostly out of his own resources and begun ministering there. and children’s lives are being touched…and Christ’s love is setting them free.fore too long i have been silent! I have read how people have threatened to stop support of his ministry because they expected him to toe some kind of mark, not offend them, not be preachy, not be up front. ask a soldier who has faced combat in iraq or Afghanistan to describe what goes on, and if he or she will talk they will not candy coat things.I CHALLENGE YOU. IF YOU TRULY BELIEVE THAT THE LORD HAS COME TO SET THE CAPTIVES FREE… THEN SUPPORT DAVID AND HOPE HOUSE… WHETHER FINANCIALLY OR PRAYERFULLY. COMMIT YOURSELF TO IT.IN TURN, KNOW THAT HE IS COMMITTED TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH… PURE AND SIMPLE, NOT CANDY COATED, NOT WATERED DOWN. HIS REPORTS ARE DIRECT FROM THE FRONT LINES WHERE THE WAR IS BEING WAGED…AND IT IS A DEADLY BATTLE FOR THE SOULS OF CHILDREN.If you want to support some work that is candy coated, watered down and not likely to offend you or disturb you in any way, turn on a sally struthers commercial… or sarah mclaughlin’s pleas to protect abused animals.BUT IF YOU WANT TO BE CONNECTED TO THE VERY WORK OF GOD…THEN SUPPORT AND STAND BY THIS MINISTRY AND BY DAVID.”What will you do with the least of these…my bretheren?” (Jesus) .

The Jordans

I watched David for over 5 years consistently change the lives of the people around him. Isn’t that what we are called to, make disciples, love others and help those in need.. Well this is David and Hope House Cebu is a place where lives are truly changed and impacted daily for God’s kingdom. It really comes down to what could be more important than saving these children from what surrounds them, giving them hope and a future bright and full of opportunity. We love David and Ailene and will support Hope House all our days!!! If you want religion, walk into a church building, but if you want to see the Kingdom of God moving watch David! Our friends and family sponsor 9 children and I concider it an honor to serve God in this way. Jesus loves the little children, we want to be like Jesus so this is only a natural response to a heart that loves Him. There is a great community of supporters and I truly feel like I would be welcomed by any of the Hope House Family. I cannot say enough good about this place. I promise you there is nothing more impacting or important you could spend your dollar on! We are 5 years in and falling in love every day with new faces!!! God bless Hope House!!!

 

 

Mike O’Neill   

Arlie, what David and his crew are doing is nothing less then spectacular, and all under the power of the Holy Spirit, for if it was not, they would not have been able to get as far as they have in such a short time…. take a look at the street scenes and other photo she has posted. I know he has over 100 girls sponsored as well as other children and I believe he has been able to get a couple adults sponsored ( helping them up on their feet)and a couple dwellings repaired / built for more livable conditions. I may not be one hundred percent correct, so you will have to look at the page and see what is going on. we have been sponsoring a child now for almost a year, I can not recall the actual start date,so I will look back cause that will be like a day for a new birthday girl….. 🙂 .

 

All I can say is the Spirit of God HAS to be on you for you to do what you are doing there. It breaks my heart and makes my stomach sick knowing what the children there go through. And seeing dead bodies of kids on top of garbage piles or the kids filthy and starving with no parent to protect and care for them. I pray so hard for God to save them. God HAS to be giving you the grace and strength to handle all you do and go through. I’m so excited about the school too! I’m sure that will bring so much hope to the kids!… from a sponsor

I have been following all the work done by David and Hope House for a few years now and ALL I have seen is the love of God in action. Although David has been facing persecution and challenges he pushes forward, in the Lord’s strength, and has reached so many endangered children and given them hope, a warm place to stay, food and most of all, shown them the true love of Jesus and brought them to new life. Bless you brother David and keep doing what you have been doing for many children have been given a second chance at life and happiness because you were prepared to stand in the gap for these precious little ones!!!

God calls some to the forefront of the battle. Others are mandanted to guard the “stuff” back home. David is a Frontline Warrior called by Jesus Christ to go to fight for the poorst of the poor. No soldier goes into battle without support…financial & spiritual…that’s our part!
In scripture there are 2 types of Christians: those who are sent & those who support!!
There is no way this man can do what he does UNLESS he was SENT & EQUIPPED by the supernatural grace/love of the Father & the POWER of the Holy Spirit!!

I’d like to throw in this name. DavidandAilene Wilkerson They run a ministry and are so worthy of any donation of any amount. When you friend David M Wilkerson, you get to actually SEE your money at work. He gives updates often and is a blessing, even when circumstances in their country are beyond the impoverished. He also helps children who are victims of sex trafficking, orphans and sick children, while teaching the word of God and the walk of Jesus.

Viola O.

YOU are such a HUGE BLESSING to the children, their families & the community, with the WORK that you are doing there for the LORD, David! THANK YOU so much for going into DETAIL about HOW & WHY you distribute the funds/blessings the way you do! (: I am sure there are ALWAYS going to be people who (MISTAKENLY & PRIDEFULLY) THINK or BELIEVE that there is a BETTER way/system for you to be handling things there, as you have been told many times… BUT… until someone LIVES THERE (not just VISITS or sits behind a computer in their comfy home giving advice) & DEALS with aaaaaaaaaaaaaaall of the THINGS (ups, downs, trials, errors, good & bad, problems, joys, attacks, victories etc…) on a DAILY BASIS like YOU HAVE since YOU BEGAN HHC (not to mention aaaaaaaaall of sponsors, the questions, replies, the criticisms, the sorrows, the false (Catholic) doctrines, the HARD WORK that is involved there & aaaaaaall of the ATTACKS from UNGODLY, PRIDEFUL & ENVIOUS people, via SATAN) they have NO IDEA what they are talking about! MANY people PRIDEFULLY think that THEY are going to TELL YOU or SHOW YOU how it is done & they have FAILED MISERABLY each & every time! WHY ??? Because GOD CALLED YOU THERE (to CEBU) so that YOU could SHEPARD this Ministry/HHC & represent HIM & because you were obedient to HIS CALL, it has prospered regardless of SATAN’S little & sometimes VICIOUS attacks!I would LOVE to see your critics, leave EVERYTHING behind (deny themselves) to go there (or anywhere else in the world where a ministry like this is needed) take up their crosses, follow JESUS & dedicate their lives to serving HIM by being the hands & feet of JESUS & starting up the same type of (FRUITFUL, LOVING & GOD FEARING) Ministry that you have. (: Glory Glory Hallelujah! Until then, I cannot take ANY of their CRITICISMS or outright ATTACKS seriously. What’s AWESOME is that even though there have been many, many trials & errors (like in EVERY ministry), over time you have SHOWN/PROVEN to us that GOD’S LOVING HAND is upon YOU & EVERYONE whose lives that YOU have touched & continue to touch, through HHC! With aaaaaall of that being said, I still can’t even begin to grasp just how DIFFICULT it has been for you to be able to get THIS FAR with HHC or just how EXHAUSTING it has been for you! Nevertheless, it’s easy to SEE that this has been a LABOR of LOVE for you (on soooooo many levels). Keep up the GREAT & GLORIOUS WORK for the LORD & may continue to GOD RICHLY BLESS YOU ALL, at HOPE HOUSE CEBU!

All I can say is well done brother and may the Lord continue to bless and use you and others helping those held captive and hungry. More than I can I do so only praises and thankfulness for the work Our Father has given you.

Minnow K 

I could write forever on what I have seen! HHC is God’s work in action. A grass roots mission like no other. Donations are put to full use with maximum transparency and sound judgement

Betty  P

David takes us with him via video on shopping trips. We see the kids that he and Ailene are are feeding, paying medical bills for, clothing, teaching in the school they started plus so much more. They have Bible studies and church services.

Some of the kids live with them, right at Hope House. They counsel and give love to them. In the videos we see food handed out to the hungry day and night. Money is being used directly for the children. There are no middlemen taking the lion’s share of the donations.If you want to actually see your donations at work, Hope House is where you want to send your money.

Larry Lakey

 Today at 2:19am God bless you David, I don’t always comment but I do know the good work you do by your posts and what Janet tells me. Stay safe my brother, we love you, your family and ministry.

Donna Deaver 

Thats so wonderful to hear! ❤❤❤ My heart is now singing a happy song…which is great considering right before i opened up fb on my phone just now, i was feeling sad again. I can TOTALLY see the transformation too…in her face and her whole countenance! Before she looked like a zombie…demon possessed woman. Afterwards, she was standing with a grouo of God sent friends, with a smile on her face. She looked like a person again, and not a zombie. It’s wonderful what God can do. It’s wonderful what he can do through his children. We are his hands and feet. I’m so glad that you and your kids are using that in a good way. Thank you so much for that from the heart. ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

No matter where or how we share the Gospel of Jesus..if we reach one soul for Him then our rewards in Heaven will be counted and reserved. Being saved, good, etc. does not merit your Rewards in Heaven.

You can be confident that whatever you give the vast majority of it will be used to finance the ministry and provide for the kids, no creaming off to pay for offices, salaries or top heavy administrative expenses. It’s all about the kids.

Lois Nuse 

I don’t think you know just how special you are–it takes faith and courage to do all you do. You are really a true servant of God–you are very blessed! God is with you–and He is providing–in a world that is messed up financially–just when you need something–I have a feeling–might be at the last minute–but God always comes through with your need for your kids and their families.

Minnow K 

You will never find a charity with a more direct line. David and Hope House Cebu live the ministry with the children. There are no fat cats skimming from the top. There are no expensive marketing and mailing programs. Your donations are put to good use dollar after dollar. You can see the pictures and videos day after day. An ON FOOT mission.

Muriel Sowden  

Hope House is showing that lives can be transformed, if we reach out in love.

Sal Langley

 One of the most special things I saw this Christmas was when a child was asked in our church what she got for Christmas and she said that her mother had sponsored a child at Hope House so she had an adopted sister as a Christmas ‘gift’. All the other children had shown presents of toys and clothes but this child was brimming with excitement and wonder.We were all blessed to see it.

Doug H 

I will continue sending you money to feed the kids! I DO KNOW where the money goes. Keep up the good work David.

Ernst 

man of God, You are doing what very few others would do, living amongst those you are caring for, not in a nice house and good suburb. your hands get dirty as you serve, because you are willing to DO The Work of GOD. Continue, for Greater is HE in you, than he, and they, who are of this worldSo you give to the 700 club. How much of that goes to the poor, the needy, the helpless, the hungry, the desitute, the lost, the sick, the widow, the orphan, the outcast, the rejected. AND, HOW MUCH GOES TO THOSE THAT

“Where your treasure is, there your heart isalso” Jesus. A small raise @ work made it possible to bless & sponsor Ronelin @ Hope House Cebu in the Philippines, where there is a high rate of child prostitution, child labor,famine and poverty. There, through the grace of God & His people, it’s being prevented through the gospel. Thank you David Wilkerson of Hope House Cebu for your obedience & love for Jesus and others. Be Christlike… “love not in word nor tongue, but in deed & truth”Apostle John. Where is your treasure friend

Dean Weir 

I can vouch for your good work brothers and sisters. x We can also vouch that sponsoring a child through Hope House is an immense joy. We get regular updates on our 2 kids and we have been following Davids ministry through Hope House Cebu for two years now and can assure you this is the real deal and the help gets directly to the children. Our only regret is that at present we are unable to sponsor more kids but we hope in future we would be able to sponsor many more. Not only do they get help, they get a sense of worth and a family that truly cares for them and enables them to attain a real future and hope. If you decide to sponsor a child here or help in any way you WILL be making a real difference in the life of a child and see them thrive.

David Odom

I would just like to say that I like to support Hope House Cebu because I am convinced beyond a shadow of doubt that it’s the right thing to do. I only wish that I had more resources and time to devote to these folks. I know that in a world of fast paced drama and me mentality it is hard to focus on the things that matter the most. I am very blessed and honored to be a sponsor of four beautiful girls here for over a year. I know that David Wilkerson and Hope House Cebu are the real deal and that I’m storing up treasure in Heaven. Because these folks are the Kingdom of God.

I have a GREAT friend here who speaks English well Her name is Ildelor Paquit. She stays with me all day and night until I go to bed. She has answered MANY of my questions and has helped me A LOT. She said David helped her get off drugs, and teaches her the Bible. She had tears in her eyes at one point. She truly loves David Wilkerson because he helps teach her the Bible and helps her children go to school! I sure am going to miss her when I leave. She is 29 years old and has a heart for Jesus!!!!

 

Marsha Karen Fowler 

Going on two years sponsoring a young girl, and I don’t intend to quit. David provides them with food and clothing, but he also makes Jesus come alive in their lives. I hope to meet the child I sponsor one day. In the meantime, I will help her from here, and always keep her in my prayers!

 

Bill Berle‎ to David M Wilkerson
I wrote this and asked David to share it on his page. I first met David back in the early 90’s when he came into our Sherwood A.A. group in San Angelo Texas. It was a condition of his parole that he come to A.A. I am one of the old timers is what we are called. We come to A.A. for fellowship and sobriety. We all knew there was something special about David when he first came in. He had the ability to make anyone laugh. On the rare occasions David would actually get up and speak publicly, he would have the entire hall rolling in laughter. I laughed so hard, I had to go to the doctor the next day. One thing I remember about David, is he told the truth. He told the truth about himself and about us. He not only made people laugh, he made them cry. When David left us here, he had finally gotten sober. He would come into the A.A. club and announce ” I am high as a kite, is it okay if I sit down and drink coffee” and we would always say ” sure sit down David” My biggest memory of David was the time he was called on to speak at a convention here where many hundreds of people had come to hear veteran A.A. speakers. David was not on the speakers list, but when Doug Williams got up to speak in his time slot, He said that he wanted to give his time to David which surprised everyone in the room. Doug was one of the founders of Texas A.A. and a highly respected leader in our fellowship. David came up looking like he just rolled out of bed, which is how he always looked. I wish I had recorded his talk that evening. It was silent in that large noisy hall filled with people. Every person there was fixed on the podium and what David was saying. I heard one of the most profound speeches of my entire life that night and one of the most powerful talks ever given in A.A. I think what made it so much that way, is we all remembered David from when he first came in, and now we sat listening intently to someone we didn’t even think would make it. What we were seeing was a higher power at work. We call this higher power God. I am an agnostic, but whatever happened to David here over the years we knew him, I believe it was God. It doesn’t surprise us to see David in Cebu doing what he is doing. David, God bless you, and thank you for showing us the way.

Betchie Lorenzo Mesias

This is my first time visit at Hope house Cebu during there sunday service and and slum alaska outreach. honestly my heart was broke for these people,for these kids. David is a tough person, who really has risked his own life here for the glory and honor of our Lord Jesus Christ.  They need help financially that’s the number one help they need here, it’s hard for Pastor David because he’s alone here doing all this, he needs workers and volunteers to help him here, a very tough situation but they survived by the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Sandy Shiflett   Happy Birthday David! May God poor out blessing upon blessing over you as you serve Him in such a mighty way.

Patrick Cole As I pack my bags on this early Tuesday morning here in the Philippines, it’s hard for me to believe the past 3 weeks are already over. As I head back to Japan, I’ll definitely have the kids and David’s ministry on my mind and prayers. Pastor Edwin has been a great guide around the country and I thank him for his influence as well. The kids here act so happy and playful and yet they have so little compared to almost all who will read this. We threw frisbee, played basketball, played cards, and we made fun of each other’s lack of ability to pronounce the person’s language correctly. I got to interview some of the mothers and kids as well about how this ministry has affected, and in many ways, changed their lives. God and the Gospel is moving in the Philippines. The poverty here is real, but not just physical needs, they have spiritual needs as well. David’s hope house for the kids provides that immensely in the spiritual darkness much of this place is in. This ministry isn’t picture-perfect, but what ministry is? He’s trying and he has a vision, a real vision for what God can do with children. Children are the future because children don’t stay children. They grow up and have a real impact on the people around them. God loves children and we should help them, because we were once children too.

God’s hand is truly on Hope House and its occupants. If it were not legit there would be no blessings and just looking at those beautiful smiling faces speaks volumes

Yes amen! We also receive pictures of our sponsored children. It is so rewarding to see the children clean, healthy, and smiling. I also enjoy the videos that David posts of the children singing and worshiping. And to see the pictures of outreach where these children are reaching out to others. God bless David and Ailene and all the people who work with them for our Lord

Thank you, Lord! I love my Lori!!! I have always been able to see a story in her eyes… That is what drew me to her. I will not let her down! God will heal her heart! And, You, David have been her biggest Blessing! Thank you for all you do there! {{hugs}} to both of you! One of the Best gifts u could have for father’s day! Happy Father’s Day David!

Amen.  David. You really are a blessing from God to all those at Hope House. .David Pearson I was most definitely blessed. So much that not a day goes by without me thinking of those who are at Hope House. They forever have a place in my heart.That includes you too David Wilkerson. I don’t think I have laughed so much in such a long time as when I was there with you. God used you to help me in so many ways

David’s Hope House Cebu is legitimate and does a terrific job! I’ve been a supporter, now, probably around a year or so, I would guess (w/o checking our records).

Amen!! So proud of you Roxanne, you will always be in my heart and prayers, but it is wonderful to have you home againCant begin to find the words to express my thanks to the Lord, David and Hope house cebu for everything you have done and do!!!! I would say this is one of the best things i have ever had the opportunity to do! I love my two sponsored children, Karen and Roxanne very much; they and Hope house have been a blessing to all my family! I can not thank David enough for all he does for the children and families… Hope house is as real as it gets! your money goes exactly where it is intended! You can save a life!

 Muriel Sowden I started to sponsor a child at Hope House soon after the start too. I now sponsor two girls. I have also seen how they have flourished and how much the children benefit from the work at Hope House. This work makes a huge difference to the lives of the children there and I wish I could support them with more funds.

The Lord gives seed to the sower. When you give, it shall be giving back to you pressed down, shaken and running over! Hope House is a worthy ministry to support with your giving. When you feed the poor you will not lack.

Blessings come in many different ways. For me, a way of life that kept me on the road for38 years as a long haul truck driver, I would still be driving had the Lord not got my attention by causing physical problems. long story short after many surgeries, I have had many months of recuperation unable to work, in that time God lead me to Hope House, I didn\’t know how or why but HE did and now that I have been sponsoring 1 child, the blessings in my life have multiplied beyond measure. I am now sponsoring 2 more kids and as I am able to will sponsor more. God has truly blessed me with a broken body in order to see HIS perfect will for my life. Thank you Lord for your ALL your blessings!!!From one of our supporters:If I die today I will be happy knowing that in a tiny way we have been a part of this amazing walk for Jesus.

Bj DeCoeur  

Oh “my” Kyle, the smile of a happy child will warm my heart every time. This was his first ever birthday cake so he was pretty surprised. And to share with his family, mom Rebecca,and friends was even more special. How I wish others would ‘get on board’ with David Wilkerson and Hope House Cebu and al the wonderful things that are going on there. Miracles are happening at Hope House!!!! Become a part of it!!This is why I support your group David, you are so reliable and honest and I KNOW how well you take care of the kids.

From Eugene Reyes.

..I’m blessed to witness what God is doing through you my friend. Thanks for having the courage to step out in faith. I know it helps me to see you live your life through your relationship with God. I know God is revealing things to you that we don’t see here with all the distractions in America.

e I have been a sponsor for Hope House Cebu run by David Wilkerson for close to a year now and I have seen NOTHING but goodness from this man and his ministry.

 I would suggest to anyone to go there. I went and David is doing a great work there with  the kids. If you go it will change your life forever

Aina Hellen Lanton You`r doing a magnificent job David..

 

David Wilkerson is doing a tremendous work in the slum of Cebu and neighbouring erias,, God is using this man greatly among the poor. People living in the deepest of despair, alone and abandoned on the streeets. Particularly the children vonerable to trafficing and abuse is on his heart, but all their neighbouhoods and families is in his care. I highly recommend you to support David and his team in this place. Both single donations and sponsorships to the children are much needed. God bless you in your choise 💕🤲

Nancy M

You know, it struck me that you are seeing many miracles over there because of the desperate needs there. That is why we America has to be taken down so we will learn to lean on Him as you and your precious children have. !

Janet H 

David M Wilkerson is doing the work of the Lord for these children. He brings them the gospel, the saving grace of God and he feeds them and gives them clothes and protection from evil. Please help him.

There is so much that goes on off camera at hhc ,i have tried to capture those moments and bring to u,like David buying cream for a young boys leg that is infected from digging in trash to recycle items for money….i would say this child is under 8 years old…..or David walking down the street seeing a group of boys and giving them money to buy bread with….these things are never mentioned on F.B by David,he just sees the need and tries his best to fill it…..David is there for a reason n purpose,you are also on this page for a reason and purpose…..lets all do our part n help the kids!!!!!

 

Tim Lewis 

A true testimony to the mandate of Our Savior and Lord Jesus ! ����

To best serve the children & families, to gain trust & respect…live where they live!
This servant of the LORD has stayed FAITHFULLY…10 years, to exact…when many have come & gone. Serving in the slums of Cebu is EXTREMELY challenging & at times, dangerous. David has kept moving forward with solutions & hope for those he has grown to love!
What a Father’s heart he has. What GRACE the FATHER has given David thru Jesus Christ, his LORD & REDEEMER!!

 I grew up in same church, same hometown,same schools with David. He’s been a prodical son who woke up in a pig sty….but I guarantee he isn’t a scam or a phoney. He cares & is the real deal when it comes to those kids. `

David’s Love and Intrepidness for God and His work is obvious. May the Lord Jesus Christ cause this ministry to flourish and prosper more every day until the revelation of the Lord where surely its reward is great.

 

Bonnie S everyone I love this man of God, David Wilkerson, he has helped these children in such a God sent Way, and I believe the Lord has sent him there to the Phippines to help these homeless children, he takes them to his home, the House of Cehu, and many childrens lives were changed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I have watched David for three years and his ministry is growing. He would love to friend you, and believe me you will bow and pray for him and the children. Its so beautiful. God is working among them, and I also believe the Greater things will David do in the Holy Spirit Manifestion. Praise God. Every child David witness to gave their heart to Jesus and God began to change their lives. They smiling and they have food to eat and clean clothes now. David started out small and he began to pick the kids up and fed them. They have no beds to sleep on no shelter nothing. I am supporter for him. I think its wonderful. No matter how they live they accepted Jesus. We as America, are too prideful to even want God because we have everything, and that is pride. Sad to say. I have watched David and seen his trials and tribulations and God pulled him through, and no devil in hell will stop him for spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Its amazing. It truly is.

 

Vicki B you are amazing david keep up the good work

Thank you David & Ailene for your sacrificial life to Save Cebu, please tell the church that I cried tears of joy & happiness seeing them all . Love,Susan

 

Jo Buckberry   

I sit with our kids at night and thank God for our meal and pray that not only will we be a family who prays but that we will do all we can possible to see our brothers and sisters loved and cared for and give what we can and do what we can. We are so happy that these people are receiving Gods word and have David and the team to bring about amazing change in their lives.

 Lori McIntosh 

Bro Dave, I have watched you from when you were finding the children in the holes. God has his hand and favor upon you. I can testify that you are a vessel and been chosen for a high call. The baptism day really got me. I am ready to pack and come help for next one!!!Love to you in Christ. Lori

 Angella Eagleson 

 David thank you so much for the encouragement during this time that our family is going through!!! Thank you also for having such a great and caring heart for these children!!!! We really appreciate the updates even though we haven’t been able to help recently! God bless you and all the kids there at Hope House!!

 

 Kimberly    Sponsoring through HHC has been one of the best experiences of my life. I started with one little one, and my “family” is now 3 girls. I think of them as my own, andhave watched them grow… thrive and SURVIVE. It couldn’t be done without David and HHC.Best of all, they are coming to know Jesus! The kids get fed physically AND spiritually.Thank you David and HHC for all you do!Oh, and LOVE all the clothes! Thanks David. Folks that are not sure about sponsoring – when I ask David to do something certain for my sponsored girls, he ALWAYS follows through. And I often see the results through photos or,like this, a video.

 Morningstar Y  I PRAY FOR YOU AND THE GIRLS EACH NIGHT BROTHER…. THE LORD HAS GIVEN YOU A SPIRIT OF HELPS, MERCY, KINDNESS AND COMPASSION.. YOU ARE GREATLY BLESSED AND I KNOW IT MUST BE DIFFICULT AT TIMES .. BUT HE HAS NEVER NOR WILL HE EVER LEAVE YOUR SIDE … HE IS REFINING US EVERY DAY TO BE MORE LIKE HIM AND IF WE LIVED FOR A THOUSAND YEARS WE COULDN’T EVEN COME CLOSE .. YET HE LOVES US …. MAY THE LORD CONTINUE TO STRENGTHEN YOU AND OPEN DOORS FOR YOU THERE TO HELP MORE BEAUTIFUL CHILDREN OF CEBU KNOW THE LOVE OF CHRIST AND LIVE HAPPY AND HEALTHY LIVES … GOD BLESS YOU AND MANY OF US HERE AT HOME LOVE YOU TOO.. I KNOW I DO BROTHER ♥ AGAPE

 i have followed your posts right from the beginning and have actually watched your grow to where you are now….and man were you angry or should i say “fierce”and i even wondered if you were saved a couple of times ,but i am just one of many who have been praying for you my brother and i am very proud to know you ….even though you dont know me

Mandy Branham

 over 2 years ago i was moved to sponsor a child from Hope House Cebu, Angela is that child, and i have been so very blessed, David not only provides pictures, he takes the kids out into the world, away from the slums, he gives them a chance to do things they would never do if not for him, and he is giving them real HOPE, David has given these kids the truth, he is teaching them how to be CHRIST like, through example, they go with him where he goes, they feed others who are also hungry, they are learning, and they are becoming true children of GOD…………..David does not pick only the best behaved, orthe smartest of the children, David feeds them all, not only with bread, but with the WORD of GOD, THE BREAD OF LIFE……..

 I have been a sponsor for almost 3 years now, I have been blessed in watching a young girl become a beautiful young woman, with HOPE, without HHC she would not have had that same HOPE, my life has been blessed because some one else allowed me to HELP FEED THE CHILDREN, THANK YOU DAVID for being the HOPE they can see, you have fed their empty bellies and most of all youhave fed them with THE WORD OF GOD and filled their empty souls.

Margaret J Arkell

 Hope House Cebu and the work you are doing is such a wonderful thing for all those beautiful children God Bless you .

I see you as a simple person sharing your journey & your heart as you walk w/The Lord. You are figuring things out as you go instead of having everything sorted out before you start.There is a beautiful simplicity to that & something that may be difficult for some people to understand.

Susan Kirwin to John Graf

-my husband is a trained minister and we are In Australia. We have been supporter of the ministries of David Wilkerson And Hope House since virtually the start of his ministry in Cebu, after we had satisfied ourselves that our support is being channeled directly to the need We have been assured time & again that every cent paid to the Ministry there goes to right to the designated recipient without any costs for administration or other ‘miscellaneous’ needs. We have total faith in David but also proof of his honesty and integrity. Give with confidence that your money will be used fully for the need. May God bless you as you support these people.

 

Bonnie Fahrner

You have been blessed with so much wisdom from the Lord. I appreciate all the upliftingthings you post. Have a blessed day David.

It’s positive doesn’t say enough about my perception of Hope House. It’s beyond positive and based 100% on my personal experience, not just word of mouth. I am so blessed to be able to sponsor Clarissa and am so thankful that God has put this mission on David’s heart and spirit. To help these little ones to not only survive and overcome, but to also grow and make a life for themselves. But wait, David doesn’t just help the children, he also also helps adults that are in dire straits. God bless you David and all of the people who contribute to God’s work at Hope House day

Nigel Pope What I saw at Hope House Cebu, were children being fed, getting brand new clothes, and most were from middle to higher end stores, and not bargain basement shops. David also buys less expensive clothes, but he told me that he wants them to have good clothes as well. I saw teenagers with cell phones and just to see them apart from where they live, you would think they were middle class kids, both in their behavior and their dress. You would never guess they lived in slum poverty. David has done a truly incredible job with these kids, nothing short of a miracle really. David has come a long ways since I was there, and if the kids have progressed since I saw them, it might be I would see something even more amazing than I have already seen. The kids love David and I saw that for myself. I also saw where some people slandered his ministry. That is very sad and unfortunate. I don’t know what they think they saw, but I didn’t see it, and I don’t believe any of it based on my own experience. The Filipino people may be poor, but they are far from stupid.. There is no way David would command the respect and loyalty he has there with hundreds of people, maybe thousands, if he were not being more than fair with them.. God bless this ministry and God bless you David.. you are a true servant of God, and much more.

 

Michael Smith

 Now wait a minute…..this is SOMEONE ELSE’S kids he, and his wife have devoted their lives to help. This is the children offended, by their generation. And Jesus reached out to them, through a willing soul. Hands and feet of Jesus means handing something to a need in someone. Highest respect for this example of Jesus love.

Terri B

 Yes I give and I give joyfully! Knowing the money is seed and it’s going into fertile soil! I know of no other ministry than this one that has the fruit of the Kingdom of Heaven! Love,love this work of God and I’m so thankful for David and Ailene and their hearts for these children!

David is a man who has been through the gamut of human experiences, and God has called him to minister to impoverished and trafficked children in the Philippines. David is not here for monetary gain of any kind. He came here and got a job, and then God told him that he should help homeless children and so he did. By feeding them and giving them the Gospel of Jesus Christ. And he is doing the same thing with Trafficked girls; taking them out of their environment and showing them how good Jesus wants them to have it if they turn from that life. A lot of them have and a lot of them are going to yet.

The Jordans

I watched David for over 5 years consistently change the lives of the people around him. Isn’t that what we are called to, make disciples, love others and help those in need.. Well this is David and Hope House Cebu is a place where lives are truly changed and impacted daily for God’s kingdom. It really comes down to what could be more important than saving these children from what surrounds them, giving them hope and a future bright and full of opportunity. We love David and Ailene and will support Hope House all our days!!! If you want religion, walk into a church building, but if you want to see the Kingdom of God moving watch David! Our friends and family sponsor 9 children and I concider it an honor to serve God in this way. Jesus loves the little children, we want to be like Jesus so this is only a natural response to a heart that loves Him. There is a great community of supporters and I truly feel like I would be welcomed by any of the Hope House Family. I cannot say enough good about this place. I promise you there is nothing more impacting or important you could spend your dollar on! We are 5 years in and falling in love every day with new faces!!! God bless Hope House!!!

All I can say is the Spirit of God HAS to be on you for you to do what you are doing there. It breaks my heart and makes my stomach sick knowing what the children there go through. And seeing dead bodies of kids on top of garbage piles or the kids filthy and starving with no parent to protect and care for them. I pray so hard for God to save them. God HAS to be giving you the grace and strength to handle all you do and go through. I’m so excited about the school too! I’m sure that will bring so much hope to the kids!… from a sponsor

David D Cohen I love what Hope House does for the kids.

Jonathan Lawrence when i started facebook i made a point of adding Christians who inspire me in the faith. of my 598 facebook friends, David Wilkerson, whom i’ve known now for roughly 4 years, is at or near the top of Christians who inspire me in the faith, especially in terms of living every day according to what is asked of us in the Scriptures.

 

Mike O’Neill   

Arlie, what David and his crew are doing is nothing less then spectacular, and all under the power of the Holy Spirit, for if it was not, they would not have been able to get as far as they have in such a short time…. take a look at the street scenes and other photo she has posted. I know he has over 100 girls sponsored as well as other children and I believe he has been able to get a couple adults sponsored ( helping them up on their feet)and a couple dwellings repaired / built for more livable conditions. I may not be one hundred percent correct, so you will have to look at the page and see what is going on. we have been sponsoring a child now for almost a year, I can not recall the actual start date,so I will look back cause that will be like a day for a new birthday girl….. 🙂 .

.. .I have never seen such rapid conversion of a donation into what the kids need as when our charity recently sent David a one-off from an anonymous donor. Within 24 hours there was1000lbs of rice bought and handed out, meds for a sick child, a mass expedition to eat out,Bibles and more. That money was a blur…

Angela L David has opened so many of our eyes to the brutal poverty in the Philippines, he is in Cebu, I had no idea how bad things were till David sent me a friend request as we had a mutual friend. He has monthly child sponsorship (US $30 per month)

 

Angela L And I would also like to add that his life is constantly at risk and he has been badly attacked already and threatened a number of times, when there are huge fires or natural disasters in the area, he and his wife and ministry team are there to offer help, financial and emotional support etc.

Barbara  Amen!!! Yes David I want to add my voice to this and give God the honour and glory He deserves for He knew He was choosing the right person with the right attitude to do this for HIM!! I have worked for years on a smaller scale than you with a childrens home back here in Africa and the heartache but ultimate joy of being on the ground with these broken children and then seeing them grow and bloom into the adults that God had planned for them is something you would not understand unless you experience it first hand. Strong leaders emerge like beautiful butterflies from cacoons and in turn mentor others again. And all because someone was prepared to hear God’s calling and to push through and give them a chance. David you and your family and team are constantly in our prayers and I just want to say thank you to God for giving you this privilege of working with these precious children, for that is what it is…a privilege. May His grace and mercy and protection always be over you and yours. And thank you for being faithful to HIM and never listen to the world. Keep your eyes upwards for that is where your help comes from. Bless you precious obedient son of God.

This is beautiful.When I think back to the first photos I saw of these kiddies a few months ago. Dirty, torn clothing, hungry and sad – now look at these Hope House Kiddies. Makes it all so worthwhile. David – you do work miracles.

 

Ina van Staden  do not stop with the good works you’ve done! Surely the Lord will notice it and bless you all your workers and the kids even more! this world really needs more people like you! God bless!

Chris Davis–

– We have been sponsoring two and some odd kids there for the past 6 months and we know that all help has gotten directly to the kids. We can see the changes our sponsorship brought to them with our own eyes and we can assure that all help goes directly to the sponsored kids. We are now going to sponsor two more, but there are thousands who still need sponsorship.

There’s something you learn from helping other people with their dreams that prepares you for your own. By Bishop T. D. Jakes Ithought of you when I read this today!

   I have to say this about this matter……I believe David is doing a good work or the Lord, and he is doing it out of love, not out of what he can get out of it.I fully understand what people think cause I thought that too, but not long, I …have been watching. Brother David IS NOT DOING THIS FOR SELFISH REASONS.

 I am a proud supporter of Hope House Cebu! Wouldn’t trade what I have (the chance to change a child’s life for the better) for anything the world could offer me.

Your response to detractors is right and I agree with Mike. Its a privilege to help you in any way because God is saving children’s lives through Hope House.

Jonathan Cornwell      I was at hope house cebu in May 2011 this year. I enjoyed the worship service. The children love God athope house and love to sing. David Wilkerson and Hope House Cebu are for real and they needyour help. There is a huge difference in seeing the photos online and being here in person.I went with David and saw for myself the slum conditions the children live in everyday .

Instead of being groomed to work in bikini bars, sold into human trafficking, or sleeping in cardboard boxes on the street, these kids are attending VBS and learning the joy of the Lord – all thanks to one guy who cared enough to make a better life for them, David Wilkerson. Add him to your friends list and you will be blessed.  

Jennifer Bauman  

When I stopped having a pity party over problems in my life, and when I took my eyes off myself and began investing in the lives of others, God began to pour out His mercy and grace and healing in my life, and has met every need I had! Actually, the turning point was when I started giving to Hope House Cebu and sponsoring Lezel….to have the Lord speak to your heart, and say,” help my people” and than give you the resources to be able to do so…God is amazing, and my blessing is to be part of His big picture 🙂   ..

Michael Kirwin 

Charles, David is the real deal. We sponsor 2 kids with him. Yesterday one of them had their 13th b/day and we sent her some money via david. The child sent us a message last night to say thanks for the money. The work here is a Godly work and I encourage people to support what they can

Nina Davis..

…. Thank you for posting these! And please tell David I can see Jesus in his eyes on the pic of the two of you together. Only people who truly live for God have that specific light/kindness in their eyes, its something only Jesus can put there. Have only seen it in a few others eyes in my life. And THAT is the ONLY cv I would ever need from him about his work in the phillipines. He is for real. I know that.

 At the end of the day money going to David actually reaches the children, which is more than can be said by a lot of other organizations. He is fab !Marsha Karen Fowler David, I think it is BECAUSE of the way you run Hope House, that so many are willing to help. I love being a partner with you because you care so much for these people, especially the children. And we know this because of regular photos, and videos of your interactions with them. I know God is going to continue to bless this work, as long as you continue torun it as you have been doing. You have a HEART for doing this; people, and more importantly, GOD, see this and support your efforts!

 I have been following this ministry since it started and have seen God working through the lives of these children. I love following the children and see the Love that Hope house shows to the children and their families can be seen through the videos and pictures that David regularly posts about the work they are doing showing their progress

I feel I have to add: David, you are a great example to the rest of us of walking right in with your feet and using your hands daily to do as God has lead you!

Thanks for the info, David. For anyone with any doubts about you and HHC just doesn’t know you or hasn’t followed your work. To me anyone who denies himself needed medical care to feed hungry kids is above reproach! God bless you.

I’m a single Mom of 4, my oldest is disabled, and we are on a fixed income, but we still found away to help, and now I have a son and my girls have a brother 🙂 I try to send extra when Ican, and I’ll request new shoes, etc., for my boy, and the next thing I see is a picture of him smiling from ear to ear, with his new shoes, clothes, etc. It’s awesome. see you tube videos (youtube name is Seattle2Cebu) and it is absolutely amazing. The children also help to reach out to other orphans and families on the streets. Recently about 200 homes (might be more) were destroyed, and there was David, along the people and children of Hope House, passing out sandwiches and bags of rice and vitamin drink to the victims. They also pass out these things to people in need either at the Hope House, or other areas. There are also many cases where these children are dying from starvation, and Davids finds them, gets them to the hospital, and saves their lives. It’s a sad sight, but when they are rescued, it turns into a beautiful kind of hope. Many people say “we need tohelp the kids in the US,” but they don’t really understand that in other countries and places like Cebu, there are NO government programs, no welfare, no child protection services, no housing, so these orphans and other kids end up in the sewers and eating from dumpsters…David often will take walks at night and he’ll see these people with kids, and sometimes just kids, and he’ll set a wrapped sandwich next to them, so they wake up with food

David and crew are doing such a blessed work in Cebu City. All praise and thanks to God for David’s faithfulness in service. He is surely breaking the chains of darkness and bondage for these beautiful people.
