Two Simple Words - OUR Father (#OurFatherLoves)

Our Father - with two simple words, Jesus changed our understanding of God. Shocked the Pharisees. Humbled the crowds. Still staggers us years later.

2018: A Global Overview

2018 is here - a time for fresh perspective and big dreams for the upcoming year. 2017 was a powerful year for Orphan Outreach and global orphan care, even in the midst of significant challenges. In countries around the world, government resources for care of orphans and vulnerable children grew even more limited due to political unrest and corruption. Anti-evangelism laws passed in parts of Asia and Eastern Europe have led to some ministries closing down entirely. There is more scrutiny than ever on what defines an orphan, what quality orphan care should be, and who should be charged with providing that care.

God's Favorite Children (#ServeOrphansWell)

In the mid 20th century a Peruvian priest lived in a “continent in which more than 60% of the population lives in a state of poverty, and 82% of those find themselves in extreme poverty.”  Gustavo Gutierrez was in the middle of developing liberation theology, that would be controversial at best and Marxist at worst.  Yet it originated as a call to all Christians to examine carefully the biblical commitment to the poor, and it has had a lasting effect on the development of social ministries in the evangelical church.

"Everyone should experience a mission trip once in their life." (#ShareYourStOOry)

We're honored to share the Orphan Outreach story of Elissa Cohen. Now a freshman at Texas Tech, Elissa traveled to Guatemala with friends in the summer of 2017. She says, "Guatemala changed my life."

Remain in Me (#GrowDeep)

I’ve always wondered how the eleven disciples felt about Judas. Once the news reached them, of his tragic fall from grace, of his betrayal, how did the disciples respond? Did they weep?  Did they feel guilty?  Did they feel overwhelmed? He was at best a friend and at worst a coworker who they had spent about three years with walking, eating, boating, and doing life with. They had all experienced the miraculous and supernatural. They had witnessed forgiveness and grace.  They talked face to face with the embodiment of love and compassion. They had tangible proof that hope was real, that faith was empowering and that love could not be crucified. Yet one of their own walked away from all that.  Why?
