Adoption ministry

There are over 143 million orphans in the world.  Every 13 seconds, another child is orphaned in Africa due to AIDS.  There are 118,000 children waiting to be adopted in the US foster care system alone.  The numbers are staggering, yet “I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord.  “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”

How do you fit into God’s plan for the orphans of the world?

Caring for orphans through adoption is normal…according to the word of God.  We ought to be cheering people on that choose to graft another into the family of God.  Our vision is to promote awareness for orphans worldwide and to create resources local churches can use to discern their part in orphan care.

  1. I remember when you taught on this for Easter….it was very eye opening and it’s always something I’ve believed in and would like to do one day. God has really grown this more and more in my heart. Thanks for following God’s passion and brining awareness to others. I’m thrilled to be a part of what God is doing through this ministry.

  2. Hey Bro, Just found your blog and wanted to tell you about a new site I just made for a project in Malawi. Besides my conversations with you, I have not looked at the numbers… until I was handed this assignment.

    When I saw the numbers in Malawi alone, I was floored. Nearly 1 Million orphans in that country alone- half the size of Oklahoma. Take a look – these people are doing some great things there.
