What if I told you that in Oklahoma there are close to 10,000 children who have lost everything? These children had to leave their house, their parents, possibly siblings and become a ward of the state, a foster child. Can we respond in the same way? Please? Can churches work together and post things on facebook about the needs of these children, birth parents and foster families? Nothing is impossible when the Body of Christ steps in and is willing to get their hands dirty and risk their lives for others. We have seen that this week.
"Orphans are easier to ignore before you know their names. They are easier to ignore before you see their faces. It is easier to pretend they're not real before you hold them in your arms. But once you do, everything changes..." David Platt
