Orphan Sunday

NOVEMBER 3 – Orphan Sunday

One Day-One Voice-One Purpose!

 995 children in Kansas Need a Forever HOME!

 One month ago, I was in K.C. after visiting with Anna Pilato at DCF in Topeka.  She was asking me to inform the churches in Kansas about Orphan Sunday.  In K.C.,a Pastor from Possom Trot, Texas was sharing about his church that has adopted 76 foster children.  Possom Trot doesn’t even have a stoplight.  I knew then that this task is not impossible for KANSAS. November is National Adoption Month – in KANSAS the Department of Children and Families is reaching out to KANSAS churches to put feet to the scripture,

 ” Religion that our father calls pure and faultless is this: to take care of the widows and the orphans and keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” James 1:27

           Have you ever thought about what happens to a foster child when they turn 18? 

If they don’t have a forever home, where do they go for Christmas?

Is there any chance for college?

If each church would support one family to adopt one foster child that has no hope of ever going back to their home of origin they could have a FOREVER HOME. Kansas would be BLESSED and the little ones would have stability.  A place to call HOME.  Here is what you can do.  Support that family by, offering some child care, help to pay for counseling for the family and little ones who have gone so long without a forever home, drop by a meal, allow the couple to have a weekend away, even set up a fund if financial help is needed.

 How can this happen:
