Alliance Students Benefit Orphans

Recently, the college ministry at Princeton Alliance Church (PAC) in Princeton, New Jersey, held a benefit concert for the Tia Ana Orphanage in El Salvador, where short-term missions teams regularly assist the national church with ministry. “God is using college students from the United States to provide love, care, and justice in a Central American community of faith,” says Matt Peace, director for the C&MA’s Short-Term Missions Office. “Approximately 500 college students gathered for a night of praise and worship, raising more than $15,000 for the orphans.”

Tia Ana, who grew up in the streets of San Salvador, opened a home where destitute children receive love, food, clothing, and the knowledge of God. She wants the children to have what she didn’t as a child-the assurance of God’s love-and she relies on short-term teams to help meet spiritual and practical needs.

Not Just Chump Change

Matt Murphy, PAC pastor of young adults and coordinator of the event, was amazed at the outpouring of love by the concert-goers. “My heart broke when I saw young people giving. It wasn’t just chump change; some gave all the money they had,” says Murphy, who has received numerous daily requests for a repeat performance.

“This event raised a lot of money for Tia Ana,” Murphy says, “but it did so much more to instill a vision to live for what Jesus was all about-the least of these.”
