Caring For Orphans

“Religion God the Father accepts as pure and faultless is to look after orphans and widows in their distress.” James 1:27
Today, there are approximately 153 million orphans worldwide. This statistic does not include the totality of abandoned children, ones absorbed into the human trafficking industry, or even the nameless, unregistered children who dwell on the streets of major cities world-wide. The number of orphaned children in the world today is staggering and demands our advocacy. Will you join Don Moen :: Worship in Action as we support Royal Seed Home in Ofaakor, Ghana? Royal See is home to more than 190 children. WIA partners with Royal Seed on a monthly basis to provide nutritious food and safe water for the children.
Earlier this year, I had planned to be touring internationally this fall. However, plans changed. Some of our hosts needed to change their dates and some had to cancel unexpectedly. Doors shut – concerts were cancelled, and my calendar was open.
While doors to international ministry were closing, God was opening new ones. I now had an opportunity to try something I’ve been wanting to do for several years. I called a few friends and asked if I could come to their church and lead an evening of worship and share my vision for Worship In Action and the impact we can have all over the world. In a few short weeks, my friend Lenny LeBlanc and I had the pleasure of visiting churches in Kansas, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Georgia and Maryland sharing something BIG – that I’d like to share with you as well.
It’s something I’ve never done before, and I’m excited to let you know how you can be part of it.
The mother of the Royal Seed Home, Naomi, many years ago purchased a large piece of property in the country to be the future home of RSH. The time finally arrived for the children to move to the farm, and they couldn’t be happier. They have wide open spaces to run, play, worship, garden, raise chickens and pigs…it’s a wonderful home.
The downside of moving to the country is the children now have to travel long distances to and from school. The vehicle used to transport the children is unreliable and expensive to maintain. It breaks down easily as it travels over poorly constructed dirt roads. In the rainy season, the road often washes out, making a trip to school impossible. The best option for the children is to construct a school building right where they live.
