Orphan Sunday

banner-web-orphansunday2011-300x128

I know the dates are wrong on my banner, but Orphan Sunday is coming late to our church this year.  We had to put it off a couple months since we were in China adding Will to his forever family.   We are now having our event on February 19.  I am so excited.  We are going to have information on adoption (international and domestic), foster care, and child sponsorship.  My goal for the event is to spur families to consider adoption and for others in the church for whom this isn’t an option to realize that they can care for the orphan in a different way.  We are hoping to grow our ministry in a way in which we can meet needs of foster children/parent’s in our own community,  provide financial/emotional/educational support for adoptive families, and to encourage child sponsorship or volunteerism.  If you could please start praying for our church as they receive this message for open hearts and minds from the congregation I would really appreciate it!

Here is a great video from the Christian Alliance for Orphans about the need – click on Orphan Sunday below for the link:
