And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water...only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward. Matthew 10:42
Payatas, Philippines is also the home of the infamous garbage dump where in the year 2000, hundreds, maybe more were killed when the mountain of garbage cascaded down upon their shanties during the rainy season.
Their homes were built there so the people could be as close as possible to their work and be the first to work the next trucks to enter the site.
There is tons of information on Payatas,Philippines. All you need to do is Google it.
Payatas Mission Outreach, Inc.’s goal is to change Payatas, Philippines from a city of despair to one of hope. We want to help to transform this place into a normal place to live and to work.
100% of your donations go to doing just that. Our missionaries are supported by Churches and individual contributors and the money from the online donations goes directly to the need here in Payatas, Philippines.
We are changing lives through education. We first and foremost teach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We do it in the same way Jesus did and that’s by educating, feeding and helping others to advance in their lives.
Our programs include raising the educational standards of each child so that they will be able to get a 100% scholarship from the Government to attend college.
We teach them to be proficient in English so that a good job such as working in a call center will be in their reach as opposed to a life of picking through the trash.
We have taught and are teaching the children in music and they are achieving the goals they are setting. Their lives have balance and focus now.
We supply clothes when we receive them as well as food, camp, VBS, Christmas celebration…

This page is only an introduction to who we are. Come take a look and get to know and trust us. We have references all over. Just ask and we will give them to you. We want you to be absolutely secure in the fact that you are changing lives for the better when you give to this cause.
You might want to look at a few photos. Here are thousands and there will be more on the way: https://pastorjackwilson.smugmug.com/
We have three websites:
Each site will give you all the information you will need to make an informed decision about supporting us.
Like I said, we are only focussing on Payatas. That’s because we can not help everyone. Eventually, we might branch out to other places but it will only be after the needs of Payatas have been met.
Please consider either a one time or long term support of this ministry. You can make a difference and every month receive an email report on the progress we are making.
By His Grace,
Pastor Jack Wilson
