Orphan Sunday

Orphan Sunday is this Sunday.  Many churches across the country are coming together to look at the needs of orphans through out the world.  I have not attended an Orphan Sunday Event, but I did attend the Christian Alliance for Orphans conference this last spring with some dear friends.  It is powerful to come together for the purpose of serving and advocating for the orphans in the world.

There are many ways that we can advocate for the orphan.  Sponsoring a child, adoption and Foster Care are a few. I wrote about how sponsoring a child in need helped open our eyes to see God's dream for us to adopt here.

There are so many needs out there it sometimes feels overwhelming.   Like Sweet Terraffa who lives at at Drawn from Water who is experiencing some health issues right now.  He is in need of sponsors to pray for him and help support him financially.  And, there are so many more stories out there of orphans in need.

I'm praying for Orphan Sunday 2010 to open eyes to the needs and touch hearts in our family and through out the country.
