We set the lonely in families because God set us in His
New Wilmington, PA (PRWEB) September 28, 2014
The biblical call to “defend the cause of the fatherless” (Isaiah 1:17) is on hearts and minds of Christians in a way not seen in generations. The national Orphan Sunday campaign led by the Christian Alliance for Orphans (CAFO)has helped stoke this movement to a new intensity, including more than 3,000 local Orphan Sunday events nationwide. As an active member of CAFO, The Bair Foundation Child and Family Ministries will be joining in this effort the first weekend of November, calling Christians to adoption, foster care and global orphan ministry.
The Bair Foundation Child and Family Ministries will be sponsoring Orphan Sunday events in Pennsylvania, Ohio, North and South Carolina, Kentucky, Virginia, Oklahoma, Texas and New Mexico. The Bair Foundation is a national organization that has helped children, teens and families for over 47 years. Bair staff from each office will be partnering with their local churches to speak or host other events including small groups and prayer gatherings. These events and presentations celebrate God’s love and help us to answer His call to share the love that He has given to us with these children and teens that are so in need. Support Bair and their mission by coming to Orphan Sunday to open your heart and mind by learning more about what you can do to change young lives.
There are more than 400,000 children in the foster system in the U.S. today, with over 100,000 waiting to be adopted. Globally, an estimated 17.8 million children have lost both parents. The Orphan Sunday campaign invites Christians to be God’s answer to these needs. “We set the lonely in families because God set us in His.”
