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.

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 we wait, for the body of Christ to come together … Continue reading

Our students will be going into their community and serving the elderly and widows. It will be a week long activity of shoveling, mending roofs, cutting grass (not with a mower, but by hand with a slasher), fetching water from the wells, … Continue reading

On November 4th, as well as the surrounding Sundays, thousands of events will echo across America and around the globe, all sharing a single goal: that God’s steadfast love for the orphan will also stir in our hearts.  From many sources, one voice.
