As the director of Welcoming Angels, I am really blessed and encouraged by all those who have shown an interest in this new hosting ministry. It shows me that there are a growing number of people who have a heart for taking care of older orphans. Thank you to all who have attended an information session or called/emailed requesting more information.
Since I was a teenager I have known that God placed a special call on my life to take care of orphans and children in crisis. Throughout the years, I have been guided by that call and worked in various programs serving older orphans in particular. Welcoming Angels is a ministry specifically geared toward raising awareness of the needs of older orphans throughout the world. Through this ministry we want to partner with churches and Christian families to advocate for these older orphans to find forever families. In order for this pilot program in Maryland to be launched by our goal of February 2011, we need several more families to join us by filling out the FREE online pre-application before next Thursday, November 17th. There are 10 children waiting in Ethiopia to have an opportunity to live with a Christian family in Maryland for 4 weeks. Please pray and consider if that family could be yours.
