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.

Ukraine: An Epicenter of Charity and War

Slaviansk, a city in eastern Ukraine with about 130,000 residents, has suddenly gained international notoriety, as it has become one of the epicenters of the ongoing crisis in Ukraine. A gateway city to the eastern regions of Donetsk, Lugansk, and Kharkiv, it is a strategic location for pro-Russian separatists. However, prior to the international attention the city has gained in recent months, Slaviansk was the epicenter of another revolution, a revolution surrounding adoption.

New Hope in Thailand

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.

Let's Do More In 2-0-1-4!

I greatly enjoy movies!  Especially the inspirational genre, there is something captivating about a true story that warms the heart or provokes further thought about amazing situations.  Whether it is an exciting sports movie or some other uplifting film, there are stories that share about people who have been motivated to achieve a personal dream, or somehow make a difference when no one thought it mattered or was possible!  December seems to have more positive movies on television for families, but they usually reflect the holidays rather than the need to inspire.

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.

A New Home, A New Future

I am blessed to be one of the newer additions to the Orphan’s Promise Family, and will be visiting and monitoring our various projects. Previously, I have traveled to Latin America as well as Asia in previous work, but have always had a desire to see Africa. For me, Nigeria was an introduction to the reality and truth of that country's deep need. It is different to see poverty on TV, or the internet and to experience it in person. The vivid images that were seen will never be forgotten and will forever be impressed upon my heart.

Mazuba is Saved!

A 12 year old girl named, Mazuba lost both of her parents to the AIDS pandemic. She was an only child and was taken into custody by her wayward aunt, a single mother who stole all the possessions left behind by her deceased parents, then abandoned her to live in the streets of a slum compound in the Copperbelt Province of Zambia.

Alone, starving, with nowhere to sleep, she wandered the area until she was found by some men who raped her and passed along the HIV virus to her.
