"I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me - the task of testifying to the gospel of God's grace." Acts 20:24

The Power of A Testimony

I find it fascinating that we have a Father in Heaven who loves His children so much that He will go to such great lengths to show each and every one His great love...even if it means taking ONE FAMILY from across the world and joining them to an ORPHAN who is lonely and desperate for a family so that they can adopt that orphan and give them a home and a family.  That is what He did for each one of us...He adopted us into His family by sending His One and Only Son so that we can follow Him as our Lord, be filled with joy and peace and have a home in Heaven eternally!!! 

Lifesong For Orphans is an adoption ministry that  seeks to equip the church so that each member can provide something for the orphan: 
"some to adopt, some to care, some to give".

Here is a video clip of one family's story... GOD IS SO GOOD!!!

Just think...He loves each and every one of us as much as that precious baby that He chose for this family!!! All He asks is that we TRUST Him and RECEIVE His love! He amazes me and I stand in AWE of Him and His great LOVE!!!

Jesus, we praise Your Holy Name! I stand in awe of YOU and Your great love! Thank You for being a Father to the fatherless. Thank You for setting the lonely in families. Thank You for raising up so many wonderful ministries to care for the least, the last and the lost - for this is Your Heart! Bless each one of them as they go out in Your Name!

If you are wondering what part God may want you to play in an orphan's life, OR if you want to see where God is at work in the lives of orphans, 
here are some resources that may help! (as well as the links in the sidebar)


"if you SPEND yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your LIGHT will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday." Isaiah 58:10 (caps mine)

Jesus tells us that we are the LIGHT of the world (Matthew 5:14) 
If we want our light to shine, we must SPEND ourselves 
in behalf of the needy!!! So let's say it together, 
"Here we are Lord! Send us!!!"
