Millions of children worldwide are growing up without a mom or dad. In California, there are nearly 60,000 children who need a home for a short time or a lifetime—the number has tripled in the last 20 years.
The statistics are staggering, but God has a loving plan for each child, and His plan includes us. Compassion and involvement are our response to the love God has shown us.
For example, in Modesto, California and its surrounding area, there more than 550 children who are in and out of foster care. Our vision is to see these children in a loving home. Since there 600 churches and so many amazing people in the Modesto area, this goal is really obtainable! Quite likely, your city is very similar to Modesto with its existing needs and resources to meet these needs.
Our God, from your sacred home you take care of the orphans… you find families for those who are lonely. Psalm 68:5-6 CEV
