New Look, Same Mission

  With a new year comes new opportunities, and we have some exciting things coming in 2018! Lifesong for Orphans is getting a new look!

5 Ways Kids Can Care for Orphans

  You and your favorite miniatures have 14 glorious weeks of summer vacation ahead of you. What will you do with it? Why not teach your children to do something with their summer that will make an eternal impact? Specifically, why not encourage your kids to care for orphans? Here are 5 ways they can help: 1. Kids can pray for the fatherless. The most fundamental thing we can teach our children to do for orphans is to pray for them. We have no greater privilege than to talk to God. By teaching our kids to pray for orphans, we establish a habit when they are young and we teach them to pray for the needs of others and not just their own.

Family Friday: “We know God called us to adopt…”

Steven and Tiffany could list 78 reasons why they decided to grow their family through adoption.  For several years, they traveled as road directors for an international children’s choir.  They felt God working on their hearts as they were “Mom” and “Dad” to the children in the choir, many of which were orphans from India, Uganda, Brazil, Philippines, Nepal, and Myanmar. The Lord used these children to cultivate in them a heart for the orphan.  As most adoption stories go, Steven and Tiffany’s journey had some unexpected turns and surprises. But through it all, they felt God’s presence and peace as they persued the adoption of their daughter Ayla from China. Thanks to The Church of Brook Hills Adoption Fund, Steven and Tiffany were given a matching grant through Lifesong to help with some of the fiancial costs. Listen in to hear more… Lifesong provided a way for people to give tax-deductible gifts … Continue reading

Celebrating Through Service — Lifesong Zambia

We invite you to share a word of encouragement to our staff at Lifesong Zambia. To do so, please reply to this email or leave a comment on our Facebook wall and it will be forwarded to our staff. Thank you in advance for your kind words of support!  We are blessed to share this update from Lifesong Zambia from missionary Shane McBride, “Often times Independence Day is celebrated with fireworks, picnics, and apple pies. Well, here in Zambia on October 24th, we are using the holiday as a time of reflection. We are blessed beyond measure and our students know this.   So, how will we celebrate? Through service. 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

Family Friday: “…Nothing is by chance…”

Phillip and Elaine were first called to adoption in 2000 as they sought to grow their family. They now have five daughers (three through adoption). After attending an “If You Were Mine” conference with the intent of starting a church adoption ministry, they were convicted that the Lord was calling them to adopt again. Please listen is as they share God’s almighty hand as He worked through their 4th adoption of Lily Rose from China with the help of Jeeah’s Hope, one of Lifesong Church Adoption Fund Partners. Our Lifesong grant was probably the biggest God-thing that occurred during the adoption process for Lily Rose. We met a couple, Skip & Ashley, via an online adoption community several years before beginning our adoption for Lily Rose. Ashley followed our blog during our adoption of our 5th daughter. Unbeknownst to me, she and a friend had began an adoption ministry called … Continue reading
