Pure religion in a picture…

Josh and Jenn recently brought home their two darling children from Ethiopia.  Lifesong was blessed to be able to partner with them along with the Louisville Orphan Care Initiative in providing them with a matching grant. Take a glance with us into their lives as they live out James 1:27 in a very real and active way… The Lord has given us the privilege of developing a relationship over the last few years with a 93 year old widow at our church named Geneva. I visit Geneva every other week at her home, and we pray at the end of our time together. I’ve often been struck by the beauty of her prayers for our children, and thought at those times about how God’s Word tells us that He cares for the widows and the orphans. It’s especially sweet for me to be part of seeing a widow care for orphans … Continue reading

‘Every chance I get…’

Every chance I get, I point adopting families (and those who think they might be) to Lifesong for Orphans. Our Christ Jesus is using this ministry to empower families to adopt children, and thus to point the whole church to the gospel that saves us and the mission that sends us.                                 –Russell D. Moore, author, Adopted for Life: The Priority of Adoption for Christian Families and Churches.   Dr. Moore is the Dean of the School of Theology and Senior Vice-President for Academic Administration at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He also serves as a preaching pastor at Highview Baptist Church, where he ministers weekly at the congregation’s Fegenbush location. Moore is the author of The Kingdom of Christ and Adopted for Life.   Thanks Dr. Moore for the significant part you are playing in raising awareness and equipping Christ-followers to participate in our Father’s powerful plan for the fatherless.

Help William Walk…

Meet William. William was born with club feet, a condition easily fixed at birth in the states, but often left untreated in parts of the world that do not have the financial or medical capabilities to perform surgery.  He is one of our little guys who attends the Lifesong school in Zambia.  A team from central Illinois visited this past January and their hearts were touched by the sadness in William’s eyes as he stood on the sidelines watching the other children run and play.  Touched as they saw him carried over a mile by his older brother to school.  Touched as he walked completely on the sides of his feet.  So touched that they, along with others, have been moved to action in seeking medical help for William. They are in the process of contacting doctors both in the US and Zambia figuring out the legal, medical and financial issues of … Continue reading

Running with Purpose…

David and Adam are bringing a whole new meaning to the term, “hard core”. This year, they are training to participate in the Beast Series which consists of seven ultramarathons which range from 31 to 100 miles in length.  Why?!, you may ask.  They obviously have a passion for the sport…but that’s not all.  They have a deep passion for the fatherless and have committed to help raise money through their races to help adoptive families, who share that passion. Partnering with Lifesong for Orphans, Run for Orphans‘ goal is to raise $100,000.00 in 2010 which will be used as matching grants to faciliate the adoption of 20 children. Check out this video… To learn more about Run for Orphans and how you can help, visit their website.
