Those of us born in countries like the USA, and especially our children are truly blessed. Little children in countries like Colombia have no infrastructure, limited laws and organizations, and nearly non-existing welfare programs to keep them alive.
Together we can make a difference and heal their little bodies, teach them good hygiene, educate and build within them new working skills and turn them into teachers to continue this cause.
Participate by clicking the area to the right of this article that says ($50.00. Win $20,000 in cash.).
For More information on the property call 541-620-1749 or email us at email@example.com / Help us kick-start this project today! And May God Bless You as you Bless Others
Within Each Child Exists a Smile
Help us make it happen
Because these children have nothing, in comparison to some of the poorest children in the USA, a simple stick of gum, a simple wooden toy, or a $0.99 crank flashlight brings out a smile in a child just waiting for a miracle.
Please help us make that happen, and lighten a child’s day with hope.
Please Don’t Donate

Hundreds of distraught Colombians flee Venezuela as border dispute intensifies.
Many left under the scorching sun, fearful of what might happen if they stay in Venezuela following the dispute between the two countries
People carry their belongings while crossing the Tachira river border with Venezuela into Colombia, near Villa del Rosario village.
The ongoing crisis on the border between Colombia and Venezuela should not be used for political point-scoring by leaders in either country ahead of elections in coming months, the Colombian government said on Tuesday.

People carry their belongings while crossing the Tachira River on the Venezuela into Colombia border.
Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro vowed to crackdown on illegal migrants from neighboring Colombia he blames for rampant crime and widespread shortages, while authorities across the border struggled to deal with droves of returning deportees.
Hundreds of Colombians waded across a border river with fridges, chickens and mattresses on their backs as goats and children followed under the scorching tropical sun, victims of an escalating dispute with Venezuela's government.
Saying they were forced from their rickety wooden or corrugated metal homes and scared of what might happen next if they stayed inside Venezuela, they fled across the River Tachira and back into their homeland on Tuesday.
People carry their household belongings across the Tachira River from Venezuela, foreground, to Colombia, near San Antonio del Tachira, Venezuela, Tuesday, Aug. 25, 2015, during a mass exodus of Colombians living on the Venezuelan side of the border.
"I feel impotent. I want to cry. I lost everything overnight," Darwin Arenas, a 26-year-old Colombian, said as he and his Venezuelan wife dragged their possessions across the river in a wheelbarrow.
Most of the refugees have lived for years in Ernesto Guevara, an extremely poor Venezuelan border village, or other nearby settlements, but they were forced to leave after Venezuelan authorities marked their homes with a "D" for "demolition" over the weekend.
Venezuela said it was cracking down on paramilitary and smuggling gangs active along the border but the families fleeing said they had nothing to do with crime.
Some like Mr Arenas, a supermarket worker with two children, were formally deported by Venezuela. Others said that National Guard officers ordered them to get out, and others decided to leave before the border crisis gets worse.
Nicolas Maduro has blamed many of recession-hit Venezuela's problems on Colombians, sparking a spat between the two South American neighbours who share a long and porous border plagued by drug trafficking, paramilitaries, Left-wing guerrillas and smugglers.
The Venezuelan president last week closed an official border crossing near here and suspended some constitutional guarantees along parts of the border, allowing authorities the right to search homes and businesses without a warrant, after Venezuelan soldiers were injured in a firefight with smugglers.
Across the river on Colombian soil, authorities are helping the distraught families find refuge. Many have no idea where they are going and on Tuesday they milled around aimlessly alongside their possessions on a muddy river bank.
Colombia's disaster relief agency said it was sending 500 emergency aid kits as well as tents and diapers to the town of Cucuta on the Colombian side of the border.
Mr Maduro said he is only interested in forcing out smugglers and paramilitaries and insists that human rights will be upheld. The Colombian government, however, says more than 1,000 people have been unfairly deported.
"Flattening houses, using force against people, separating families, not allowing them to take their few possessions and marking the houses for demolition is totally unacceptable and is a reminder of bitter episodes of humanity that cannot be repeated," Juan Manuel Santos, the Colombian president, said on Tuesday.
Dozens of residents in Ernesto Guevara, named for the Argentine revolutionary better known as "Che" Guevara, said National Guard troops came over the weekend and went through every single home, looking for Colombians.
They labelled many houses with a giant "D" for "demolition", the residents said, adding that the National Guard proceeded to damage homes and steal some possessions.
Videos posted online purported to show demolition equipment being used to flatten houses elsewhere along the border.
"The National Guard came and said we had 72 hours to get out and they would demolish our house," said Colombian Luz Nelsi, a 36-year-old single mother whose wooden house is painted with a giant "D."
"Do we look like paramilitaries?" said Ms Nelsi as she and her three young daughters stood at the door.
Venezuela said it was is acting only to protect Venezuela and that it has respected the Colombians' rights.
"We haven't violated a single human right. We haven't flattened a single house" said Jose Vielma, the governor of Tachira state, during a special National Assembly session in the western part of Venezuela on Tuesday.
Venezuelan authorities did not respond to requests for comment on this article.
Many Venezuelans have coexisted with the country's large Colombian community for decades and are shocked by the border crisis.
Housewife Maria Velazco, 47, helped Colombian friends living in Ernesto Guevara pack up their things.
"This is like when the Jews' houses were marked with stars in Germany," she said outside the friends' house as those around her frantically packed up what they could.
Every country every human being - father, mother, or child in need, requires someone to stand up and defend them, teach them and help them. The risks are always high, but the potential in every life is worth the risks. Please help Big Tree Ministry and our family supporting it - expand into Colombia and help these people. We in-turn will teach these people, about the pains being felt in other places around the world, so that one day - they might champion a foundation near you.

Big Tree Ministry Update: 10/22/2015
This Friday, we purchase plane tickets for our wonderful, and adventurous Marketing and Research Volunteer to head off to Medellin, Colombia and on-wards to Caldes and the Angelopolis area.
She will set up our base, and start gathering information and a full report.
Please keep her in your prayers, as we start taking the first steps at a final move towards our God given vision for a Children's Wellness and Educational Center in and near Caldes Colombia.
Please visit this link for a recent post, and at the bottom enjoy a warm and wonderful story of a 9 year old impoverished boy, who single handedly cares for over 45 paralyzed elderly people in the Colombian Region.
The story is a testament, that a person need only the will to help and blessings from above in order to open up the resources.
The movie is part one of 4; part 1 is where most of the information is and the short 13 minute clip is worth the viewing.
On the week of October 28th, we have confirmed a flight for one of our volunteers to move to the Caldes Colombian region. She will be our boots on the ground in helping survey the needs and resources available in the area and to prepare entry for the rest of the team.
Once she arrives, we will update all of our wonderful donors and subscribers with photo's of the area and a report from Ms. Helvia.
Thank you so much for your continued support.
We want to thank so many of you for helping us spread the news. Our supporters are growing and we ask that you continue helping us prepare the future for these children and those single parents located in these impoverished areas.
We understand that there are people all over the world that are in need, and how we wish, that we could help them all.
For now, we can only focus on saving One Star Fish at a time, one child at a time, and one town at a time.
Your support, whether financial, or simply re-posting or sharing about out ministry is more than we can ask for.
Please keep us in your prayers, for guidance and perseverance
Many Blessings to all. .
