Sacrifice

I’ve shared Lifesong with you before. They are all about helping families adopt as well as providing the best care they can to orphans around the world.

Right now, Lifesong is inviting their faithful readers and supporters to step up and help in a time of need for Lifesong Liberia.

Liberia is located on the west coast of Africa, between Cote d’Ivorie and Sierra Leone. After 14 years of civil war, the country’s infrastructure was destroyed. A peace agreement was signed in 2003, though significant issues still remain. Currently, there is an unemployment rate of 80%.

 

Lifesong has partnered with The Master’s Home of Champions orphanage and is providing a loving and safe home to many destitute and abandoned children, some of whom are deaf. Bishop Emmanuel Jones and his wife, Ramona, are passionate about rescuing and caring for such children. They seek to be the hands and feet of Jesus, and are focused on the goal of raising up champions for the good of Liberia and glory of God.

This summer, another orphanage was in dire need, and  thanks to an unexpected donation (story here) Lifesong was able to be there.  Praise the Lord we can help more children!  But now, they need help too!  They need your help to make sure these children are fed every day!  They need your help to care for the fatherless!  Will you join us?

70 sponsors in one week is a tall order, but we serve a big God who has told us that caring for the poor and vulnerable is at the very heart of who He is! 

Lifesong’s goal is 70 people.  $28 a month.  1 year commitment. Contact them at info@lifesongfororphans.org to commit!

Join us in bringing joy and purpose to orphans!

Quita’s Story:

Quita is 5 years old.  During the disarmament time, rebels came to her village and took all the men, including her father.  She never saw her father again.  Later it was discovered that these men were taken to a bridge where they were shot and thrown into the river.

Her mother ran to the Salala district with the other villagers for refuge.   There she later got sick and became paralyzed.  Last year Quita’s mother died and Quita was taken to the Lifesong Liberia’s Home of Champions.  When she grows up she wants to be a medical doctor and help children.

Isn’t it amazing that at 5 years old she’s thinking about how someday she can help other children?

How can you help children today?

$28 a month for one year.

Twenty-eight dollars…

- eating out at that new restaurant

- the shirt you’ve had your eye on

- a date night to the movies

- those pillows that would just look sooo good on your sofa.

This will require a certain amount of sacrifice.  But trust me.  The sacrifice is always worth the reward.

What can you sacrifice for a child like Quita?

The goal is 70 people.  $28 a month.  One year commitment.

They only need 28 more!
