As an advocate for orphans and vulnerable children I know the need is dire to help the least of these. At Operation Orphan Care we try to educate others about the desperate need to reach out and help in some way. We have said from the start that we know we can't do everything but we can do something. We also do what we can to spread the word on what other organizations are doing. VO is one such organization who has done so much and continues to be blessed by the work that God sends them out to do. They have answered the call and are putting their work boots on. They inspire me to do more. I once heard this quote, “We learned that orphans are easier to ignore before you know their names. They are easier to ignore before you see their faces. It is easier to pretend they’re not real before you hold them in your arms. But once you do, everything changes.” – David Platt. Then I thought, If we could only get more arms under these orphans....

Take a few moments to watch this clip and see more about this wonderful ministry. If you would like to know more please check out their web site HERE. If you feel compelled to help financially please do. If you can't at this time I know they will covet your prayers!

Although they work in many places around the world I'm most drawn to the work they do in China only because we have adopted our two children from there. I like what they have to say on their site about the work they do there.

"VisitingOrphans works with government run Social Welfare Institutes (SWI) to bring love and assistance to some of those 20 million children without families. Since 2005 we have sent over 30 teams from the US to visit these SWI's. Although the SWI's do all that they can to provide the best life for the children living there, assistance and help is still needed. Our missions teams don't go in with an agenda, they go in to serve and to love. Oftentimes on our trips all you will do for hours on end is hold infants who need the love and attention they deserve or play hide-n-go-seek with a group of six year old boys. It will truly be a life-changing and unforgettable experience. "

To serve and love!! The very call of Jesus right there!
