Imagine you can’t care for your children. Do you want them to live with a Christian family, or in an institution?
The risk of both abuse and sex trafficking skyrocket for children in orphanages. Many churches want to get involved, but don’t know how to respond beyond prayer and advocacy. Placing children in Chihuahua with local families attacks the root of human trafficking in the U.S.
God places the lonely in families; he sets the prisoners free and gives them joy. Psalm 68:6. God’s will is for the orphan to be in a family. God created family in the beginning of creation as a pattern for all time. Through the greatest act of love ever displayed we as orphans are adopted into the family of Christ.
Families in the Body of Christ in Chihuahua don’t receive financial support from the government or from LightShine. They bring a child into their home simply because they desire to be the hands and feet of Jesus, and they desire to be obedient to the many commands in the Bible regarding the orphan and the defenseless. They are making the choice to deny themselves, pick up their cross, and follow Jesus daily.
