Mission & Vision


We help the world’s most vulnerable children reach their God-given potential by:

  • Creating and Sustaining Families
  • Engaging the Church in the U.S. and Abroad
  • Developing Educational and Business Opportunities



As vulnerable children reach their God-given potential, they will grow up to become godly leaders and influencers, breaking destructive cycles and creating lasting change in the communities we serve.



We believe in the following:

Jesus Christ and His teachings are central to LSM’s overall mission and to every project we undertake.

A loving, stable, and godly family is the optimal environment for the healthy development of all children.

Leadership and the responsibility to carry out the work must be in the hands of local brothers and sisters in Christ.

We connect and mobilize supporters in the US to fulfill God’s mandate that believers care for the world’s vulnerable children, believing that through their support, some in the U.S. will come to a deeper knowledge of Jesus and grow in their commitment to Him. Strengthening and advancing the Kingdom is one of LSM’s highest priorities across all operations, foreign and domestic.

A comprehensive continuum of care that addresses the needs of children is essential to leading them to becoming self-sustaining adults.

While immediate relief efforts are often necessary, development and prevention are critical to create generational, God-inspired change.

From our most senior staff to the youngest children in our care, discipleship provides a blueprint for growth and accountability.

We must steward the resources entrusted to us by using them in a God-honoring manner to bless the Kingdom and those we serve.

Self-sustainable ministry through business development and operations is critical for the long-term success of the work.

Excellence for the glory of God, on both individual and program levels, must permeate every aspect of our organization.
