Waiting children

Waiting Children.

Waiting for what?
For mom to pick them up from basketball practice?
For friends to come over to play or spend the night eating junk food and watching movies?
For holiday or birthday celebrations?

They are waiting for families.
There are now 162 million orphans worldwide. Unfathomable number to imagine, but the short video clip will give you an idea... (143,000,000 was the number a couple years back)

Overwhelming, huh?
But if you care for just one... if we each care about one... we can make a difference.

How can you care?

We've designed a program that helps you pray for a waiting child who lives right here in the USA.
Yes, the USA has waiting children. 127,000 of them waiting for a hug from mom, waiting for someone to call dad, waiting for holiday and birthday celebrations with family.

You can help waiting children by simply committing to pray for one. Pray for that child to have what your children have.

We're in contact with the agency that tracks where these waiting children are. They've agreed to contact us with updates on which children receive plans for placement with families for adoption.

Let's pray. Let's watch and see what the Lord will do. His Word says He sets the lonely in families. He's the God of His Word.

Come on! Let's not keep these kids waiting!
