Ten years ago, a group of moms and their middle-school daughters went on a mission trip to Guatemala where they worked with vulnerable children and orphans. The girls were so impacted by their experience, that they knew they had to do something more.
This year, we're sharing ways in which our God is truly Father to the fatherless in our special #OurFather devotional series. This month, Ronne Rock tells the story of seeing Jesus in those around us.
Thank you, Kaylei Ward, for sharing your heart after traveling with us to India to serve at Dar-Ul-Fazl. Yes, we love the sound of hope too.
Having a heart to serve others can take you all over the world. It has certainly done so for Stephen Spencer, founding board member of Orphan Outreach.
Word has gotten out in the small corner of a northeast India village that Zamawii is receiving a special gift. The 70-year old grandmother lives in a two-room shanty carefully perched on stilts, resting against the side of a cliff. There are two benches, a small bed, and a makeshift kitchen with a hot plate and little else. Today, one more thing will be added, and it’s causing a curious stir in the community.
“What's in the best interest of each child we serve?” As you read through the pages of the 2016-2017 Annual Report, you’ll see the dedication of a global team committed to always asking this very question. You’ll see the power of partnership as we come alongside national ministries dedicated to individualized, Christ-centered care for orphans and vulnerable children. And most of all, you’ll see the impact in the life of a child and the heart of a community when we work together, sharing our time, our talent, and our treasure. Your faithfulness bears good fruit daily.
