Orphan Sunday

As adoption has become so very dear to our hearts, Jason and I have researched a lot about orphans, orphan care, and reaching those that are most vulnerable.  One organization that I have come to love is Orphan Sunday.

Every year, this group helps promote Orphan Awareness in churches all over the world. This year, orphan Sunday will take place on November 2.

From their website : Orphan Sunday (dot) org

On Orphan Sunday, Christians stand for the orphan. We are a people called to defend the fatherless…to care for the child that has no family…to visit orphans in their distress. Each event is locally-led. Sermons and small groups, concerts and prayer gatherings, shared meals and youth activities—each rousing believers with God’s call to care for the orphan, and what we can do in response. From many sources, one voice. Each November, thousands of events will echo across America and around the globe, all sharing a single goal: that God’s great love for the orphan will find echo in our lives as well. Orphan Sunday is your opportunity to rouse church, community and friends to God’s call to care for the orphan.

Will you stand?
As people of God we need to bring awareness to this children.  
When a need has a face, we can meet that need.
