Mission Opportunity

Mission opportunities are not always big and they aren't always grandeur.  Sometimes missions involve getting down right dirty.  Sometimes there are no rewards for  your work here on this earth, but the Father wants you to continue in  His work for His glory.

But you should keep a clear mind in every situation. Don’t be afraid of suffering for the Lord. Work at telling others the Good News, and fully carry out the ministry God has given you.  2 Timothy 4:5 (NLT)

I am SO excited to share this ministry/mission opportunity with you.

Did you know that Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere?   I didn't until a few days ago.

I mentioned in my last post how my dear friend, Laura, had recently traveled to Haiti with the Global Orphan Project on a mission trip. 

On Sunday, I received an email from her that she and her husband, Aron, are starting a non-profit that is in partnership with the Global Orphan Project.  When I posted last, I did not know that they were going to be partnering with Global Orphan Project.  God WORKS.  God Moves.  God's Purpose.

Here is part of her email: "Please be in prayer with Oh4F [Open Hands for the Fatherless]. We're officially launching the website today (Sunday, January 15) to the public. I've been working on it for a while: It is going to [be] hard to get it going, but I know this is something that God put on our hearts, really, when He's in control, it will fall into place. Remember a while ago, we talked about started a foundation for children that age out in China. After hitting my road blocks, it was like God was saying, "no, I want you over here!" so this is where it's at. In Haiti. Please feel free to pass the website on to your friends and family! We really want to get the word out! What oh4f is, it stands for Open Hands 4 the Fatherless, and we're partnering with Global Orphan to sponsor a village in Haiti, which means building an orphanage with a school, providing food, clothes, medical care for those kids who are orphaned and abandoned, living on the streets, all this is provided through a local Haitian church and pastor facilitating it, thus, they're able to spread the Word of God through it!!  The goal is to eventually, be working with them as they build local businesses to help them be self-sufficient as they grow. We're trying to raise funds and find people to go on "vision trips" to Haiti, just like what we did in December. That explains it in a nutshell. "

I am urging you to at least be in prayer for OH4F.  If you are moved by the spirit, please give to this organization.  Let the spark of God spread like a wild fire.  May the orphans and those involved with them be blessed abundantly.  In Jesus Name, AMEN.
