We are excited to send three people to San Lucas Tolliman, Guatemala in 2019 with Evergreen Habitat for Humanity. We are helping fund their trip to help with new construction and healthy home kits (smokeless stove, latrine, and water filter), as well as connecting with families. This is an exciting opportunity for Orenco, as we will learn more about their service at a special Mission Sunday in November.
We are excited to learn more about the Village of Hope in Uganda and its important and vital ministry. Its focus is to bring healing to the hundreds of orphans affected by brutal attacks of Joseph Kony and his army. A portion of our mission budget goes to support their ministries.
Since 1993, Samaritan's Purse has delivered shoebox gifts packed by caring people to more than 113 million people around the world through their Operation Christmas Child program. At Orenco, watch for information each fall as we assemble boxes to be sent overseas. A portion of our budget also helps us pay postage for these boxes.
"Every shoebox offers an opportunity to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with a hurting child." - Franklin Graham, President of Samaritan's Purse
This Child Here helps children without parents and children who are at
risk in Odessa, Ukraine to help them find hope and a future. Robert Gamble, a
Presbyterian minister, is the director for this ministry, serving some of the
world's most vulnerable. Visit their site to also view some of Bob's incredible photography of
this region and its need.
