Orphans in Russia face many difficulties and seemingly insurmountable challenges. It is our vision to serve these orphans right in the orphanages where they live, bringing them joy and demonstrating God’s love to them. We partner with local believers in visiting many orphan children across the Perm region of Russia, sharing God’s love through games, stories, and songs.
Conditions in most Russian orphanages have improved greatly over the past 10 years, but the children’s greatest need remains the love and attention of a friend, and the true Hope that is found in Jesus Christ. Statistics about Russian orphans (who “graduate” from their orphanages between the ages of 16-18) are still bleak, but we believe God can change these statistics as more people get involved.
“Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, to visit the Fatherless and the Widows in their affliction…” (James 1:27)
We are always happy to bring gifts or supplies into the orphanages, as they are always greatly appreciated, but it is often a challenge just to get to some of these orphanages. We greatly appreciate the financial gifts of our dear friends from around the world which enable us to fill up our tank and just visit these wonderful children.
