Restoration in Ukraine's East

DSC_0052_1As warfare continues rage on in many parts of eastern Ukraine, the Ukrainian military has set other cities that were once war zones free. Sloviansk, a city where OP has done much work over the years, was one of the hardest hit cities. Now that the pro-Russian separatists have fled, people are returning to their war torn city and surveying the loss. The destruction is immense.

End of Year Report For OP

Outreach Summary / December 2013 Dear Friends and Family of Orphan's Promise. We wanted to share some of the highlights in this past year with you. I'm amazed at what God has done with a handful of people and the generosity of folks like you! Formed in 2005, Orphan’s Promise has worked in 61 countries and has ongoing work in 50 countries.  We serve over 100,000 children annually.

2013 Highlights

Hearing The Cry of The Poor

“Whoso stoppeth his ears at the cry of the poor, he also shall cry himself, but shall not be heard.”  Proverbs (21:13)

When you look into the eyes of a hungry or frightened child, you are looking into the eyes of Jesus crying out to you for help. He cries out to you in the orphaned, abandoned and at risk children, some of the most vulnerable children in the world.

Progress In The Gypsy Camp

A wonderful report has come in from a Project Manager In Ukraine who is helping with the Gypsy programs there; SEED Project and the building of the bath and toilet facilities for this community of 5,000. Imagine, no toilets or bathing facilities for all of those people! The bath house building is progressing very well. We have a professional crew of 4 people and a head master and all the support work is being done by locals (they are also learning from the professionals at the same time). The atmosphere in the settlement is very positive.

Another Girl Again

I had to laugh when I received this little piece of cultural information from the Krause's who live and teach in an orphanage we support in Zambia:

Ronda – "In the Zambian Culture...  and Botswana as well, when a child is born and is the same sex as the last several children in the family they are named accordingly. In Botswana, a boy might be given the name Hosimonihopi....meaning "another boy again". We know a girl in Macha whose name is Nchumuna meaning 'another girl again".
