of orphaned and vulnerable children.
Including yours.

“As a Pastor, it is extremely helpful to have a co-laborer come along side me to help lead our church into a deeper understanding of the Gospel and the reality of our calling to serve the orphan. This initiative is a gift to the church and I commend it to anyone who desires to understand the application of the Gospel in the context of orphan care more fully.”
Pastor of The Parks Church (Texas)
