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.
Hello Everyone! I would like to introduce myself. My name is Martha Edmondson and I am the Director of Mobilization here at Families Outreach. God blessed me with the opportunity to come on staff with Families Outreach back in May and I am so thankful! I am married to a man who loves the LORD and have a beautiful 10-month-old daughter. God continues to prove his faithfulness to me over and over. read more
Families Outreach has a team of six men setting out tomorrow on a trip across the globe in a week. Our director Jon and five others are heading out on a double vision trip to Ethiopia and China. Ok maybe not all the way across the globe, but close enough! They will be visiting potential sites for our Orphan Care Program to begin supporting in Addis Abba and Beijing.
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
In August of 2012, we took our first mission team to Alex’s House Orphanage in Haiti. Our team of 15 worked closely with Bill Howard, the orphanage founder and director, during our week of construction. Bill is a wise man of the Lord. He left the church he was pastoring in South Carolina to devote his time to serving the street children of Haiti. Our time with Bill brought many lessons and new insights; however, one has stuck more vividly than any other- “you must be fluid”.
Woody is one of the sweet gems rescued by Alex's House. Our team will get to love on him next week!
Bill explained the necessity of being fluid during our first evening devotional. As a seasoned missionary, I had “you must be flexible” practically tattooed on my forehead. read more
