We are very happy to announce some opportunities to do ministry in areas where we are supporting orphan care. Our friends at World Orphans are offering Journey Trips in 2015 to Guatemala, Ethiopia, and South Africa. If these deadlines are approaching too quickly, Journey Trips are offered multiple times throughout the year. Here are the links to the upcoming trips:
You can also find more information about Journey Trips and their mission on their website.
Our recent trip to Haiti had a rather unexpected final day. The last day of the week is typically set aside for sight seeing, a trip up into the mountains or a day at the beach. It’s like a reward day for the team’s hard work throughout the rest of the week. Our team was planning a beach day at Wahoo Bay. It sounded like a really nice resort-it even has real sand shipped in! read more
We are proud to announce, Families Outreach will be leading our first mission trip to Haiti August 4-11. The trip will be through our partnership with Alex’s House Orphanage in Port Au Prince, Haiti. Trip cost will be $600 + airfare(around $700-900).
These are a few of the beautiful children we will serve during our trip

With the excitement of our new merchandise arriving last week, I nearly forgot to update you on my trip to Zambia. Here is one of the stories I learned the most from during my time at Global Samaritan’s. read more
I recently started reading the December issue of Tabletalk magazine (which is a great magazine -www.ligonier.org/tabletalk/) and in the introduction article, R.C. Sproul examines the perceived conflict between social justice and mercy ministries and other ministries within the church.
After months of waiting, our new website is up and running and we are very excited. Many thanks to Kendall Moss, our Public Relations director (and guru of all things creative at Families Outreach), our web designer, Killer Bee Creative, and our logo designer, Andrew Kelsall. Their hard work will enable us to better focus on, and to fulfill our mission of bringing hope to the fatherless.
