Children of Hope

Last night, our church had the Children of Hope perform. They are from different parts of the world, and most have lost their parents due to tragic diseases such as AIDS, or accidents. The children live in homes in their villages, sponsored by Christians, and given food, medical attention, education, and a loving environment where they learn about Jesus. It was very sad to see the video clips of sub Saharan Africa, and the devastation AIDS has brought to the country. There are many children left as orphans, with no adult support whatsoever. The Children of Hope come together and travel the United States performing to bring awareness to these tragic situations. It really does make you cry. However, then there is the hope of Jesus Christ, who is working in many of these childrens lives to give back what was taken from them. The children who perform are not up for adoption, what they are taught is to get an education so they can help the people in their own country. Many aspire to be teachers, doctors, nurses, and etc. They are also being educated on how to avoid AIDS by abstinence until marriage, and faithfulness in marriage. As you know, the Lord's WORD is good, and is life. It was perfect timing for our church, because we have just recently started a Pro Life Ministry, and are expecting the Lord to do great and mighty things through us! I would encourage all of you to click here to check out their website and see how a Youth Group raised money to fund a village. However, pay special attention to the Youth, and see how the Lord transformed them to KNOW that YES! God is ABLE!!! Praise be to our Lord, who is sooooo GOOD! Pam
