Your Prayers Could Make All the Difference for Ruth!

Your Prayers Could Make All the Difference for Ruth!

Shortly after Ruth was born, her parents divorced, went their separate ways and left Ruth in the care of her very economically challenged grandparents. Her grandparents, in fact, tried to give her away.

Thankfully, Ruth was discovered by the directors of a local Christian foster care system in December 2016. She lives with her foster parents, three sisters and a brother, is in kindergarten and loves school.

Recently this couple volunteered to care for Ruth permanently! They have been carefully vetted and will undergo intensive training for more than a year to ensure that Ruth is safe and no longer at risk. Without this foster family, Ruth would be one of the thousands of children living in orphanages across Southeast Asia.  And orphanages there typically have five or six caregivers looking after 250 to 300 children!

Every attempt has been made to reunify Ruth with her relatives to avoid placing her in one of these orphanages, but there is no one to care for her. Because adoption isn’t an option for Ruth, a permanent foster family is the best solution.

However, Ruth’s foster parents need assistance financially to care for her long-term. They are committed to caring for Ruth, seeing her through life and calling her their own. Won’t you pray that this loving family will become a permanent reality for Ruth, allowing her to grow up in a Christian household? Your prayers could make all the difference!

Kenyan “Trash” Truly God’s Treasure!

Kenyan “Trash” Truly God’s Treasure!

Three years ago, a dog was picking through a pile of street trash in Kenya when he suddenly began to bark furiously, attracting the attention of onlookers. When they looked closer, they found a tiny baby boy laying among the garbage, crying.

The local police were called and the little boy was hospitalized for a month. Once he was strong enough to leave the hospital, he was placed in a local Christian orphanage where caregivers named him Israel. 

Israel is still living at that orphanage in Kenya. He’s growing into a strong young boy, but he desperately needs permanency and the stability of a forever family. No amount of care in an orphanage can replace the benefits of growing up in a loving family. Would you pray that Israel would find his forever family soon?

 

 

From Rejected to Rescued

From Rejected to Rescued

Othniel’s adoption story is a reflection of his parent’s unconditional love. Born without eyes and a severe case of cerebral palsy, Othniel was placed in an Indian orphanage shortly after his birth. He barely survived, lying alone in his crib and missing many developmental milestones. His future was uncertain at best and, at worst, hopeless. But after a local pastor and his wife met Othniel, they decided, in faith, to adopt him! Generous donors helped fully fund his adoption.

Othniel is blossoming through his adoptive family’s love! After additional tests to assess his development, Othniel was diagnosed with severe intellectual disability. But this has not discouraged his new parents! They cherish Othniel; now he has the opportunity to reach his full potential as the child of God he was created to be. Praise God that Othniel has the opportunity for a joyful life with a family to call his own. And please pray that he is able to develop to his maximum potential!

At the present time, 153 million children in our world are orphans. If these children were counted as a single nation, they would compose the seventh largest nation on earth. Join us in praying that God provides a home for each of these precious little ones who long for a loving family!
