Visiting Orphans

Check out these videos from the organization Visiting Orphans.  Visiting Orphans is an organization that lists the following as their Vision:

  • To enlist Church volunteers to visit orphanages so they may meet physical, emotional and spiritual needs of orphans.
  • To develop relationships, provide comfort and to share the Gospel with orphans.
  • To provide financial aid for child sponsorship, medical assistance and construction to improve the living conditions of orphans.
  • To mobilize Christian churches to help orphans experience the blessing of family.
They desire to engage the church in orphan visitation while sponsoring trips to orphanages in a number of different countries.  The countries include:  China, Ethiopia, Rwanda, Uganda, Ghana, Ecuador, Peru, Haiti, El Salvador, Honduras, Russia and Costa Rica.

It's exciting to see an organization that desires to infect the church with a vision and a passion for orphan care.

Check out their website and check out the videos below.....be prepared to be infected.

(The videos were taken from Kari's My Crazy Adoption blog.  She just returned from a Visiting Orphans trip late in the summer.  The second video is from her trip.)
