Orphan Sunday calls the Church to care for orphans and vulnerable children.

God has been moving across the Earth to solve the orphan crisis through this simple idea.  He has called leaders from around the world and opened doors for Orphan Sunday to become a global movement of the church to care for orphans.  I am truly blessed to be a member of this incredible team.

Today, Orphan Sunday is observed in over 80 nations. Below are some news interviews where you can learn more about how you can get involved.  You can find more here:  www.orphansunday.org

Orphan Sunday has the humblest of beginnings, because that is how God works.

IMG_0518Amazingly, leaders of the faith at every level have embraced this simple idea, and it has changed nations.  In Ukraine, all major denominations have participated in Orphan Sunday, and the number of orphans has dropped dramatically as children become sons and daughters. This is the Bishop of the Orthodox faith with an adoptive family.
