REFLECTING the FATHER HEART OF GOD to the WORLD
The Need: Less than 1% of orphans are adopted. God calls believers to care for orphans in James 1:27.
Our Motivation: Throughout the Bible God reveals His heart for orphans and His instructions to us.
“Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.” James 1:27
Answering the Call: As God awakens the hearts of His people to the plight of the Fatherless He fills our hearts with compassion. In the Bible each time that Jesus felt compassion He then acted. True compassion is not sympathy or pity. True Biblical compassion moves us to ACTION.
“Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; please the case of the widow.” Isaiah 1:17
Because of our ministry of adoption we have developed relationships with trusted churches and ministries overseas. It is our joy to share the needs as well as the opportunities for connection between churches and individual believers in the U.S. with vibrant churches and ministries overseas. We invite you to prayerfully consider participating and we look forward to seeing how God will lead and provide through His people.
