“Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.” -James 1:27. Our mission as an orphan care ministry is to bring together a diverse group of people with the common desire to serve the foster and waiting children in our community and worldwide. We want to attend to the fatherless by raising awareness of their current needs, providing support to families of adopted and foster children, commitments to pray for them, and connecting these children and families to the life and love of Christ. The statistics are startling and sobering … but for many people the numbers barely register in their minds. In an age of instant communication, how many of us know that there are now more than 143 million children orphaned across the globe? That every 14 seconds an AIDS death causes another child to become an orphan? That more than 800,000 children pass through the foster care system in America each year? How many of us care? Fortunately, there is One who does care, and that is our Father in heaven. If you spend much time studying God and His priorities and passions—what He likes and dislikes, what pleases Him and what angers Him—you will learn what matters to Him. You will learn about His heart. If you searched the Bible from front to back, you’d find many issues close to God’s heart. But you’d also notice two groups of people coming up again and again. They appear so many times, in fact, you have to conclude that God mentions them purposely to make sure they are at the top of our priority list. Who are these two groups of people? They are the orphans and widows. They are the fatherless, the helpless. .
