How Love Brought Jantu to Life | Cambodia/Thailand Update

God is doing big things in Cambodia because of your prayer and support! Meet Jantu Like most of the young children we meet on migrant construction sites in Thailand, 3-year-old Jantu was sorely lacking in basic developmental skills–both physical and social–when we were first introduced to her. Since she became a part of Construction of Hope with Lifesong Thailand, we have had the incredible privilege of watching her come alive. Once painfully shy–and unable to comprehend or interact with her surroundings–she is now an eager recipient of her newfound love and attention. Because of your faithful prayer and support, she knows she is loved. The new sensory bins project in the learning center is a favorite of hers. Her motor skills development is improving by leaps and bounds. Her growing confidence has allowed her to start helping other little ones acclimate. One little girl–Soksalai–recently joined our center and was having a … Continue reading

Something to Celebrate!

You did it! You saw the need, stepped up, and met it. During the month of February, 40 people just like you stepped up to sponsor a child as we have shared pictures and stories of kids who need our help.

A Life Transformed by Love

Your support is changing the lives of orphans around the world. Whether through adoption funding or orphan care, lives–like Vasiliy’s–are being transformed by the Gospel. Here is his story. MEET VASILIY Vasiliy was just 6 years old when he lost his parents. As a result, he was brought to the local orphanage in Ukraine where he was taught from the beginning that he was an outcast. He was told, “You are going to be an alcoholic and drug addict just like your parents.” In his words– These words deeply penetrated my mind, and I started to believe this would be my destiny. But God had bigger plans for Vasiliy. A team of local Christians from Lifesong Ukraine began visiting the orphanage where Vasiliy lived. They began sharing the love of Christ with the children who most needed to hear that they were loved and cherished by the God Who made them. This team … Continue reading

Valentine’s Day: What It Should Mean to Christians

Valentine’s Day. Most people either love it or hate it. So what should it mean to people who love Jesus? Valentine’s Day–much like Santa at Christmas–began in legend with ties to a saint from early Christianity. Also like Santa and Christmas, Valentine’s Day has morphed into something completely different over time, leaving us where we are today with giving cards and candy and swimming in an almost nauseating sea of sentimentalism. Still, there is nothing wrong with celebrating love. In fact, for Christ-followers, love should be a big deal. Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. –1 John 4:7-8 A question worth asking Particularly on a day like today when the whole world seems to be celebrating love, the question we ought to ask ourselves is this–“What love … Continue reading
