Mark and Elizabeth Lovatt
YMC Supervisor, NFFCH Family Life
We met in 2015 at The Lighthouse in Tacloban. Over some time we dated, married, and were blessed with our sweet little guy Finley in 2018. He is so fun and brings us so much joy. We are now pursuing not only our dream but our calling to come back and serve on a long-term basis with KIDS International Ministries.
KIDS International Ministry was founded in 2005 in order to start a home for abandoned and impoverished children. Over the last 17 years, there has been much expansion in ministry, but New Faith Family Children's Home remains one of our key pillars of breaking the cycle of poverty.
Today NFFCH cares for an average of 50 children. We love seeing roughly 5-10 adoptions and re-unifications each year, and we also love adding new kids to our family! We have a dedicated team of local Filipino staff who cover roles from cooks to house parents to social workers to security and much more. We love empowering locals to bring change in their community and country. The staff at our home are not just staff, especially to our children--they're family!
