How Will God Use YOU?
That was the question we asked our church body today as we launched a brand new ministry named "Loved By Choice", a foster care and adoption ministry!! We have a website that is brand new and under construction but we hope to have some pretty neat stuff on it this week. I have been pretty busy making the presentation video and planning for the presentation of the ministry today so that explains the lack of computer presence I have had lately. But the presentation went great and we have a big group of folks signed up to come to the info seminar we will be having on November 14th at our church. We are presenting info about being a foster, adoptive or wrap-around family which is one who could provide all kinds of support to foster and adopting families and children. This has been a long time in the making to get this ministry going and God finally brought it to fruition and we are really excited about where it will go and how many lives will be affected by it. There are 4 of us that were the "development team", if you will, 3 of whom have adopted internationally and one of whom is a social worker with our Department of Social Services and who works with foster care, and ALL 4 of whom love Jesus and want to be obedient to His call to "defend the cause of the fatherless" (Isaiah 1:17). God is on the move at our church and working in the hearts of His people and as we said to our church family today, YOU are God's plan for the orphan. How will God use YOU?
