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

Grace For Ghana

Orphan's Promise has been enabling students in Ghana to attend school. Several have attended the University and others are in the lower grades. All are so grateful to OP for helping them to achieve their hard won goals of getting an education.

Twenty-One (21) students who are living in communities close enough to Accra were invited to collect their fees personally from the CBN Ghana office.  They submitted receipts of the payments from their respective schools to the office.

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.

Vietnamese Boy Turns To Jesus

Orphan’s Promise has a ministry partner in central Vietnam that reaches out to teenagers and young adult boys, some who are orphans, others who are off the streets, and all who face many challenges. These boys are given a home to live in and the chance to further their education and to receive training and skills, while working at a motorcycle wash and repair shop (BMOWCC). I would like to share a recent story I received from our partner about a 16 year old boy called Tan (name changed) and how he has been blessed through this ministry supported each month by Orphan’s Promise.

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".
