Widows and Orphans|
Caring for Those in Need
Part 3 of 3
|oment||Posted June 23, 2016|
This concludes the 3 part series about the Widows and Orphans organization in Africa supported by the Chapel through our association with Foundation Ministries.
The Widows and Orphans organization provides homes, food, schooling and teachings of Christ by moving orphans off the streets. The home also provides shelter for a widow who functions as the mother to the orphans.
You can see the joy in the children's faces when they receive new clothing, food or go shopping. One can only imagine the change in them when they come from the streets to live with other children and a mother to nurture them in a home. Add to that regular meals with an education and their lives have been changed in a very positive way.
The Chapel's support through the Global/National Mission Committee Chaired by Vicki Thompson has helped build more homes and purchase goats for milk, cheese and bartering. One orphan in the picture of twelve boys said, "Now we can eat". You can see the joy in their faces, in the pictures, with any gift they receive. Rene Brown, Foundation Ministries, is shown handing out food to an orphan.
The Chapel liaison for Foundation Ministries and the Widows and Orphans organization is Becky McKee. If you want more information about this ministry please contact Becky.
