This Sunday is the first official Orphan Sunday. Churches around the country are doing different events and activities raising awareness to the needs of orphans locally and globally. I will try posting resources this week that you can make available for your church.
This video connects the glory of the Gospel (i.e., the treasure that Jesus is) with the current global orphan crisis. The video’s quotations come from Dan Cruver’s article “The Orphan Crisis: Not the Way It’s Supposed to Be”

One of the exciting things about adopting from Uganda has been connecting with other families in the US, Canada, and around the world who are adopting from there as well. One of these families put together a great video of their journey. They are adopting from the same babies home that we did and so everytime I watch it I can’t help but think of our experience.
Watch it and pray for this family, and the many others. Most of all, prayer for the many, many babies waiting for a family in Uganda!Vodpod videos no longer available.
This has been on replay all day.
Oh let us
Adore the son of glory
Dressed in love
Open up your gates
Stand him up
Is it a compliment and sign of friendship to African Americans to say, “I don’t see you as black”?
