Caring for orphans is a sacred calling. The Africa Gospel Church Baby Center in Kenya rescues orphaned and abandoned babies and helps them be adopted into Christian families. Dozens of children have been rescued and have found forever families. However, many others have been at the center for a long time. Because of their individual situations, they are not able to be adopted.
Praise God that in June 2013, Kenyan missionaries Pius and Evelyn Korir became the houseparents of the new Nyumbani ya Tumaini (Home of Hope) for older orphans. These children now have a family of their own and a happy home environment!
- Pray for wisdom, strength, and health for those who care for orphans around the world. Ministry to orphans is rewarding but also exhausting.
- Pray for the orphans’ physical needs, as many come to centers in fragile conditions and in desperate need of care.
- Pray for the spiritual needs of the orphans, that they will see Christ in their caregivers and that they will come to know their heavenly Father.
