Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up” (Deut.6:7).

 

Education is a huge priority to us—especially the teaching of God’s Word. Secular education helps equip children for this life, but the Bible helps equip them for both this life and also for eternity. Children need both. And since attending school is a privilege, our kids in India actually like it—as these smiling faces show (seen here studying). Little Banka is in pink and wee David is proudly sporting a tie. These children are from one of our children’s homes in India run by Pastor Niconar & Lydia (seen here).

Another high priority is health. As well as providing nutritious meals for our kids, we also do what we can to take care of their medical needs. We recently had a rash outbreak in our Tijuana, Mexico children’s program. Sadly, most kids in the third world suffer without any medical treatment and these kinds of things spread fast. But, thanks to your support, we were able to take the kids to the doctor and get the needed medication before this turned into an epidemic. Deanna, pictured here with two of our girls, works relentlessly to take care of these little ones. (Please keep her—and them—in your prayers.)

There are only a few more months left in 2017. God has been faithful to the kids in our homes and programs—and so have you. Orphans First relies mostly on prayer and word-of-mouth. Please consider sharing the work of Orphans First with a friend or family member who might be touched and may want to join you in helping these children by becoming a prayer partner, regular supporter or one-time donor.

Thank you for your prayers and support for the precious children in our care. Thank you. Your tax-deductible contributions can be sent to the address above—or via the website: www.orphansfirst.org.
