A heart filled with love because of the cross of Jesus. A heart like God the Father’s, to love and care for orphans.
For practical help, such as mending thatch, preparing the ground for planting, teaching sewing or carpentry etc.
For taking messages, bringing supplies, escorting children to the clinic etc – as well as for playing sport and games!
God has given us these abilities to care for others and to reveal Jesus’ love. They are totally free! Church members can use these resources to begin to build a strong orphan care ministry. Could you make a copy of this blog and use it in your church?
This article appears in issue 101 of Footsteps magazine, published in January 2017, which is on the topic of caring for orphans. You can read Footsteps online, sign up to receive Footsteps regularly or contact us to order printed copies.
