A Family for Khusbhu?

A Family for Khusbhu?Khusbhu

Khusbhu, a young orphan girl in India, may owe her future to a woman that God has transformed. Years ago, Khusbhu would likely have lived in an orphanage until she “aged out,” and then become homeless, a prostitute, and/or a substance abuser. But that paradigm is changing in South India.

Anu, an orphanage director for 16 years, was starting to shift her team's focus to family-based orphan care when she heard one of our partner ministries expound on that very focus. Her resolve solidified when she "…received a deeper revelation of [God’s] heart for orphans…to place every orphan in a family!”

The government, watching Anu's team transform, is promoting this new paradigm in Christian orphanages in South India! As a result, orphanage leaders are seeking to reunify Khusbhu with her family. If that's not possible, they'll start the adoption process with a local family. Praise God that, either way, Khusbhu will have the chance to thrive under the love and support of family!

A Forever Family for Bianca

A Forever Family for Bianca

When she was only a few days old, Bianca was left in a children’s hospital in Romania, where she spent most of the first three years of her life. Her biological family took her home for short visits, but every trip was traumatic for Bianca.

Last year the parental rights of Bianca's biological family were terminated. Orphan care workers helped nurture Bianca back to health while praying for her emotional healing and for a loving couple to adopt her. Istvan and Alina, who both serve with one of our partners in Romania, learned about Bianca and decided to do just that! Praise God that now Bianca has a forever family—wonderful parents and two older siblings—and will grow up in an environment where she is cherished, well cared for and happy.

Summer Camps Encourage Orphans

Summer Camps Encourage Orphans

Our friends at Heritage Ukraine seek to minister to orphans and children from troubled homes. Their goal is that each child feels loved and hears about God’s love for them while having a great camp experience.

This past week, Paul, one of our board members, volunteered at Camp Lela in Odessa, part of Heritage's summer outreach. Sixty-five children from an orphanage in the region attended the camp, with the theme of Zorro woven into the program. This unique theatrical camp adventure included Bible lessons to prompt discussion and help children discover the meaning of life with Christ. In addition, some heavy but pertinent topics were covered—topics like drug abuse, alcoholism, life outside the orphanage, relationships between young men and women, depression and suicide. Please pray that the campers not only found the topics pertinent, but that many of them also found new life in Christ. Pray for Jesus to wrap them in his love as they return to the orphanage.

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!
