Let's Join Orphan Sunday Prayers on November 11!

During the second weekend of November 2018, a unified effort by Christians and the Jewish community in 85 nations around the world will take place as a weekend of prayer for vulnerable children.

Since 2002, churches around the world have been uniting to pray for orphans and other vulnerable children on the second Sunday in November. Last year synagogues across the globe joined us by observing Orphan Shabbat and will do so again this year November 9-10.

With 400,000 children in US foster care and 15 million worldwide who’ve lost both parents, thousands of churches and synagogues will lift up their needs, celebrate God’s special love for orphaned and vulnerable children, and show participants what ordinary people can do to put that love into action. Let’s join our hearts with theirs in prayer to see these children reunited with their families or placed in loving forever families!

From Temporary Residence to Permanent Home

We've been praying for Nastya, Katya, and Andrej since June; a local foster family graciously took in the three teens after their mother passed away, but their long-term future was uncertain.

Although complicated Ukrainian laws required the family to register as a family style care center, your prayers and financial gifts from the body of Christ helped complete the requirements. Nastya, Katya, and Andrej have a forever family! 

The three are adjusting well. In the midst of so many changes, they are happy they are able to stay in the same school. Seventh-grader Andrej, like most middle school boys, doesn’t care very much for textbooks. And the twins Nastya and Katya, high school seniors, are planning their future with the guidance of their parents … something that would have never happened if they lived in an orphanage. 

Thanks for praying for Nastya, Katya, and Andrej. Now they have a promising future with a wonderful and loving family!

From "Childless" to "Adoptive Parents" in Romania!

From "Childless" to "Adoptive Parents" in Romania!

Can you imagine wanting a family but running into brick walls at every turn? Mirabela and her husband wanted to adopt and were trying, but they kept encountering complications. Finally they were told, "It is not possible." With nowhere to turn and few resources at their disposal, they nearly gave up.

Then Mirabela heard that one of our partners in Romania was holding a conference about adoption. She went to as many trainings and counseling sessions as possible. Our partners walked Mirabela and her husband through the adoption process and advocated on their behalf to the authorities. Then, in 2017, they welcomed three-year-old Ionut into their family! Praise God with us that not only is Ionut now in a loving, supportive family, Mirabela and her husband were able to fulfill their dream of adopting. Pray that many more orphans in Romania will also find their forever families.

Join the Prayer Movement

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!
