We are a nationwide orphan ministry that works with families from coast-to-coast. We provide families the unique ministry opportunity to share Christ’s love with orphans for a 4-5 week visit during the summer and around Christmas. We have a team that works with orphanages and foster homes in the Eastern Europe countries of Latvia and Ukraine to bring the school-aged children to the US to stay with Christian host families. This can be a life-changing experience for the orphans who have never been a part of a loving, functional family. And at their age, 7-18 years old, they are the least likely candidates to ever be adopted; most believe they are unwanted and have no hope of ever knowing life in a real family.
In their 4-5 week visit, host families teach these chlidren English, life skills, and about the love of God our Heavenly Father. By the end of the child’s visit, most host families are eternally grateful for the blessings they have received in ministering to these precious lives. It brings the mission field right to your own home, neighborhood, and church. We are a Christian based, international hosting program, which brings over orphaned children from Eastern Europe twice each year to share with them the love of God and the love of a family.
Twice a year, a missions team of staff and volunteers travel to Eastern European and go into selected orphanages. Together with the orphanage director and care-givers, the team begins the interview process and get to know the children in order to make the difficult decisions of which ones will participate in the next hosting program. Typically, the team will talk with each child, take a photo or two and watch them as they interact with other children, the team members and their care-givers. They search for children who have a “resilience factor” in their lives that helps them to overcome past obstacles and difficulties.
