As promised, last Friday’s TD meeting was a special one. My big brother, Richard (above), came to share with us about a ministry to orphans in Africa that he is very involved with, Rafiki Foundation, in hopes of helping to give us an avenue to practice pure Christianity and to be doers of the Word, not merely hearers (James 1:22-27).
Then I shared about a ministry that my family has been getting increasingly involved with, a ministry to helping orphans find strong Christian families (particularly with deformities and disabilities in China – the unwanted ones), Show Hope.
James 1:27 confronts us this way, “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” And TD will be responding!
The boys small groups will each be sponsoring an orphan boy in Africa through Rafiki, while the girls small groups will each be sponsoring an orphan girl in China through Show Hope!
We also encourage you to take this idea to your family so they may prayerfully consider sponsoring children too! Check out the following web sites to get more familiar with the ministries:
