Orphan Sunday is coming!!

If you have been reading my blog for a while,

you know that our family feels called to live out James 1:27a.

Pure and undefiled religion before our God and Father is this:  
to look after orphans and widows in their distress...

Over the years, the way this looks in our lives has been different.  But we do believe that this is something everyone who calls themselves a Christian should be involved in.

On some level.

The verse doesn't say:
....When you feel like it
....When there is a special offering
....When you see a sad commerical on TV with hungry children
....(the list could go on and on)

Another thing the verse doesn't say is:
Everyone adopt a child with no parents

Like I said:  this verse looks different in different families.
I am NOT trying to convince everyone that reads this post to run out and apply for adoption or foster care

If you live on Guam -
Orphan Sunday will be at Harvest Baptist Church
Sunday, November 6th

Please bring a friend and come see the ways that you can plug into this verse on Guam.

If you don't live on Guam-
Go to this link and see if a church near you will be hosting Orphan Sunday.

more info. coming soon!!

  1. Hi, My name is Jennifer and my husband has just been stationed on Guam for a 3 year term. I am also passionate about helping the orphans of this world if not by adoption then by volunteering. I was searching to see if there was an orphanage on Guam. Do you know if there is one?
