November Is Orphan Focus Month!

Greener space for the orphans.November is the month for Thanksgiving, and we have much to be thankful for this year as God has so abundantly provided for our children in Haiti through so many of you. The month of November is also the first full month of our orphan focus campaign to achieve two key objectives. The first is to raise the necessary funds to build our new orphanage for the children in La Plaine, Haiti. The estimated cost for this project and one year of operating expenses is $1,000,000. We are praying and trusting that God will provide for His children, who are no longer fatherless, but are precious children of God.

The second objective is to find sponsors for all of our 63 children. Up to now, some of our children have had full sponsors, some have had partial sponsors, and some have no sponsor at all. Our vision is for the Lord to connect ministry partners in the U.S. with children in need in Haiti and then to foster long-distance relationships between them through cards, letters, and supervised contacts. If you would like to sponsor one of our children and make a lasting impact, please contact our orphan sponsorship director, Kelley Sangrey, at 770.479.5280 or ks@churchofthemessiah.net.

Several Reformation Hope partner churches are holding Orphan Sunday special offerings on either November 2nd or November 9th as part of their commitment to these two crucial objectives. If your church is planning to have a special Orphan Sunday offering, please prayerfully consider how God might be leading you to sponsor a child or to make a one-time investment in the new orphanage vision.

If you would like to involve your church in an Orphan Sunday offering, we encourage you to speak with your pastor or other session members and also to visit our website for print and video resources describing the vision and the purpose behind Orphan Sunday.

Pastor Paul shares his heart about the orphans he cares for in a new video uploaded to our Vimeo site. Take a moment and enjoy Jean's reflections about the children.

Academie StudentsBible College Update

In October, Pastor Jean Paul conducted the most recent Bible college class on hermeneutics. That is the five dollar word for preaching. Jean spent time teaching the students the fundamentals of Bible interpretation and some introduction to the preparation and delivery of sermons. In November, Pastor Paul will teach the second of this three-part series on preaching. The students will be challenged to write and practice delivering their sermons to their classmates, much like we do here in the United States at seminaries.

 

Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked." Psalm 82:3–4
