Saved People Serve People--Rescuing orphans in Central African and around the world

As I scroll through the pictures posted by Pastor Tom Peters of VisionTrust on his recent visit to the Central African Republic. I was encouraged and reminded of God's love for the orphan, the widow, the least, and the last.  

My family sponsors Stephanie. And it scares me when I hear news reports of violence in Bangui, the capital city of the Central African Republic.  Civil unrest and alarming violence erupts in parts of the city.  Families are in danger. Children live in fear. And our family prays for Stephanie and her family.  May God protect and give courage to Stephanie and her family.  

Pastor Tom returned with a new photo of Stephanie for us.  She is growing up and appears peaceful amid reports of unrest in the city.  I praise God for Pastor Tom and VisionTrust as they seek to develop fully devoted followers of Christ by caring for orphans and neglected children around the world.  

Our sponsorship provides good meals, basic health care, access to Learning Centers where teachers can offer good education, and Bible teaching.  Children are given the opportunity to grow in their faith to keep trusting Jesus even amid fearful situations. 

You too can sponsor a child with VisionTrust.  You can also peruse sponsorship opportunities for orphaned children in the Central African Republic with VisionTrust.
