Bethel Children’s Home
Begun by Pastor and Mrs. Mung, the Bethel Children’s Home cares for, loves and educates forty orphaned children. “Our prayer and hope is to let the children know Jesus and make him known. We want to train them in the Word of God so that they may grow and walk in the way that will please God and become a living testimony for Jesus,” Pastor Mung explains. Several children have now grown up in the home and graduated high school; one went on to Bethel Bible Institute.
