Now that warm weather is FINALLY upon us, the cold winter months are fading from our memories. But in Gyumri, those freezing cold months continue for some time without the benefit of firewood and warm housing. Little Arman gets warm. This past January we gave firewood to many of the families we serve with our program of "Warm winter". This year winter has been very frosty. We have several families that live in the basement (cellar) of a building, or in small iron huts. It is very hard to buy firewood as they have no money. We visited a family where we heard that little boy of 4, Arman is not...Read more

A city determined to hang on Our Orphan's Promise Team recently returned from the strife and turmoil that has become Ukraine. I could not believe the differences I saw. . . Kiev is a beautiful city with old world charm. Maidan Square is at the center of the city and is a lovely mix of old and new.

Terry & Nataliya in Maidan The videos I had seen on the evening news of the violence and turmoil that had taken place there late last year did not prepare me for the...Read more

Conference turn out was excellent! I recently returned from Ukraine where the strife and heartache of their civil disruption is cause enough to check on our people and projects. We did have another reason, however. We were attending the Orphan’s Promise bi-annual conference to help adoptive and foster parents work on strengthening their families and providing the support they need. This type of work brings many challenges in any culture, but here it is an even bigger challenge. Many of the families that attend are very poor and live in rural communities where there is none of the support...Read more

Every orphaned, displaced and neglected child yearns for a safe nurturing home, filled with love and kindness. The home that 32 Shan children share is no different; it is a home run by one of our ministry partners in Thailand. When many of these children first arrived at this Christian home in Northern Thailand, their young lives had been shattered by violence, fear, and the tragedies of war in Burma. Now they have found a safe haven where they can find love, security and hope for a brighter future. Orphan’s Promise provides ongoing monthly support to purchase food for these precious Shan...Read more
