My husband and I knew God had placed a call upon our lives to serve Him by ministering to orphans. However, we had no idea exactly how to accomplish this. We searched His word to see just what God had to say about caring for the fatherless. What we found was verse after verse declaring God’s amazing love for these precious children. He even defines ministering to orphans as “pure and undefiled religion.” Caring for the fatherless is truly the heart of our God!
We needed to get involved and God laid Show Hope on our hearts. After receiving this little bit of direction from God, our parental instincts took over – you know the ones that shout out that you’re going to be able to fix every problem in the world?! Of course, we immediately decided that we were going to move to China to take care of babies until God placed them with a forever family…God had to pull back the reins and remind us that He was in control, not us. He had a plan.
His plan was for us to serve as the part of the body of Christ. Some of us are the feet and some of us are the hands. God wanted us to be ones to give. Becoming a Show Hope sponsor was the role He wanted us to fulfill to help meet the needs of His children. He has never failed to amaze us since we aligned our will with His and He continues to reveal new steps we can take to get more involved in this movement. Being a Show Hope sponsor is an awesome way of plugging into the body of Christ and being able to minister to waiting children around the world!
