We are celebrating the 20th anniversary of the ministry
This summer, it was 20 years since the people from Teen Challenge started walking the streets of Žižkov, where a lot of children wandered unnoticed. They played games with them, played sports, sang songs, told them about the Lord God, and invited them to regular meetings in the clubhouse.
So inconspicuously began the service, through which in the twenty years of its existence went hundreds of children and which grew from one borrowed room to the whole house, which is often at the limit of capacity. All this thanks to many generous and willing donors and volunteers, and especially thanks to the Lord God, who during this time proved his faithfulness and took care of this ministry.
There is still need for help
In the beginning, the Children's Center was the only place for many children to wash, get clean clothes, and eat. Today, the situation of children in Žižkov has materially improved and these needs are no longer relevant for most of them. However, there remains a need for a safe, peaceful environment where they can truly be children, where they are encouraged not to succumb to the negative influences of their surroundings (alcohol, cigarettes, drugs) and where they are supported in education. Place where they find acceptance and love and where they can learn about Jesus, who alone can truly change their lives.
Many things happened in the past 20 years. Here you can find some interestiong facts.
