We invite you to share a word of encouragement to our staff at Lifesong Ukraine. To do so, please comment on this post or on our Facebook wall and it will be forwarded to our staff. Thank you in advance for your kind words of support! Please enjoy this update from Denis, Lifesong Ukraine Director… “This past weekend we had our fourth LS cup soccer competition where four teams have been qualified and participated in the semi-finals and final game. Sport is a great tool to reach out to the kids who would not typically attend our regular CCP lessons and Bible studies. With some of the kids we have just reinforced our influence and secured our relations.  As we did in previous years we have rented local Football Club Metalist stadium training fields and played four games. It was a two day event where all of the kids competition participants stayed at our camp property. LS cup goes to … Continue reading

Family Friday: “Many wanted to do more…”

1stfamilypic

Listen in with Dave & Sue as they share their expereince of adoption fundraising with Lifesong.  Dave & Sue adopted their two children, Erica (6) and Silas (2), from Ghana and we were so excited to be just one piece of the puzzle to help bring them home to a forever family! We have a great support system made up of family and friends in our community and church. They have all prayed for us and helped us prepare for the arrival of our two kids through an adoption shower. But, many wanted to do more and Lifesong provided them the opportunity to support us financially while also receiving a record of their donation and a tax deduction.  Everyone at Lifesong was more than willing to answer our questions and our emails were responded to almost immediately. We also appreciated the encouragement and prayers from the staff. The fact that Lifesong … Continue reading

Sarah’s Birthday of Purpose

Long Family 39

Meet Sarah. Sarah just celebrated her 6th birthday last month. You would expect to see dolls, games, and maybe even a bike on her birthday list, right? Wrong. For the second year in a row, Sarah has asked that instead of gifts for her birthday, money be given to Lifesong for Orphans as we care for children around the world. Recently we recieved this note, along with a check to Lifesong from Sarah’s mom, Enclosed is $500 to help fund the adoption of an Ukrainian orphan into a Christian Ukrainian family through your Adoption without Borders program. Our daughter, Sarah, chose to collect donations for Lifesong in lieu of presents to celebrate her 6th birthday. God bless you and your efforts at Lifesong! Isn’t so refreshing to know that because of the selfless choice of ONE child, an orphan in Ukraine can become adopted into a forever family! Sarah, thank you … Continue reading

The Day After Orphan Sunday – Village of Hope

photod

Please enjoy this update from Village of Hope-Guatemala, Yesterday, all over the social media world, people were posting this: Churches around the world will pause today to consider the growing orphan crisis… Our prayer is that they don’t forget tomorrow!    Have you forgotten already? Have you asked the Lord to break YOUR heart for the things that break HIS? What is He calling YOU to do? What can YOUR family sacrifice? Right now this very minute there are children waiting. Children who are living with HIV in a culture that rejects them. Schools do not want to accept them; most orphanages do not want to accept them either. And so they wait – in hopes that one day someone will welcome them in, wrap their loving arms around them and tell them they are valued, cherished, and loved. And we wait, for the body of Christ to come together … Continue reading
