Orphan Sunday

Tomorrow, November 6th is Orphan Sunday. Have you heard of it?

It's an international day to pray for and give to orphans all over the world. I first heard about it through and email I received from Show Hope. I immediately wanted to take part! 

"Lord, how can our church rally around this things that is so dear to Your heart and that you so strongly mandate for us to take up."

So, as a church we are taking this opportunity to pray for and support Restoration Gateway, which is an organization in Uganda that does orphan care and also provides for other needs in their Ugandan community. 

I'm so excited to see how God stirs people's hearts for the fatherless and the unique ways the Holy Spirit will prompt their hearts to respond to His call.

There are different callings for different people. Some are called to give financially, to pray, to take trips to places like Uganda to support organizations there. Some are called to adopt or to foster children. 

The question is not IF we should be a's HOW. The Church has a huge role to play in seeing every child put into a family.

So, what's your part??

Pray and ask the Lord how He wants you to be involved. Restoration Gateway allows people to sponsor a child each month as a part of caring for them. You could make a huge difference in the life of a child, who will one day be the next generation of their country. A generation raised to fear the Lord, raised to pursue His callings on their lives, raised to walk in peace and restoration.

Now, that's something worth giving to!
