The sixth annual Children’s Hope Dinner benefiting Orphan Outreach was an evening of inspiration for the nearly 600 guests in attendance. The event raised more than $400,000 to support ministry efforts in Central America, Asia, Africa, eastern Europe, and the U.S.
The orphan crisis can seem overwhelming.
“Here’s another way to put it: You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven. Matthew 5:14-16 MSG
Watch the ministry being done a CadaNIño in Guatemala City, and you'll see the heart of its founder, Timothy Martiny. We've been honored to work alongside Timothy for years and are overjoyed to now include CadaNIño as part of our Orphan Outreach family of ministries. Timothy's words are compelling and a great challenge to each of us as many of us prepare to serve internationally on mission trips. We thank him for allowing us to share them here.
Many people spend their lives seeking the one place their passions, interests, and skills intersect. Trey Velvin found that place ten years ago, in Orphan Outreach.
“What's in the best interest of each child we serve?” As you read through the pages of the 2016-2017 Annual Report, you’ll see the dedication of a global team committed to always asking this very question. You’ll see the power of partnership as we come alongside national ministries dedicated to individualized, Christ-centered care for orphans and vulnerable children. And most of all, you’ll see the impact in the life of a child and the heart of a community when we work together, sharing our time, our talent, and our treasure. Your faithfulness bears good fruit daily.
Join us in building relationships with the children in the La Paz community through service at the NiCo community outreach program and local public schools. This trip is open to members of 121 Community Church and individuals wanting to serve in Honduras. Register now - the deadline is July 1st!
