What about the children?

This week, November 17th - November 21st, Focus on the Family, Family Life, and Shaohannah's Hope is holding the Cry of the Orphan Campaign. Cry of the Orphan was started to raise awareness of the more than one hundred million children living as orphans across our country as well as the world.

Maybe you're not being called to adopt an orphaned child. Maybe you are. There are so many ways you can intercede for these children. Prayers. Financial support. Community awareness. Short-term missions trips. Visit Cry of the Orphan to see how you and your family can help care for orphaned children.

And, please, take a short moment out of your day to view this video. When you look into the faces of these children, you'll be looking into the faces of children who desperately need someone to love and care for them. I pray that your heart would be pierced with the desire to do your part in the care of an orphan.

Great video Amber and very close to my heart. It has been 18 months since I spent the week at the orphanage in Haiti, they will never leave my heart or mind.

Wow what a video! What alarmingly high numbers. I'm going to check out the website.

PS - I wanted to pop on here and wish you a Happy Birthday before the day is over.

I just wanted to stop by and tell you thank you for caring for orphans. As I have read through your blogs on children I am encouraged that I am not alone in this fight to help orphaned and abandoned children. I am the Director of Public Relations for a non-profit organization called World Orphans. We build church based orphan homes all over the world and our mission is simple E3 to reach each church…each child…each community. I would love for you to take a look at our website and let me know if you have any questions. ( thank you again for your heart and words that you have written. I hope you will have a glorious blessed day!
