Lifesong for Orphans: Orphan Sunday

I am so excited about Lifesong's mission moment this month.  Well, it usually excites me but this month just a little more than usual!  

November is Adoption and Orphan Awareness month and our church's Orphan and Adoption Ministry has a great night planned for Orphan Sunday.  Well, since our speaker wasn't available on November 3 which is Orphan Sunday worldwide, we changed it to November 10th and are so excited about it. Until a few years ago I didn't know about Orphan Sunday.  I didn't know about a lot of things were God's command to care for the fatherless was concerned but I'm learning. God may not "call" everyone to adopt but he does command everyone to care for the orphan.  Read more from Lifesong.

On November 3rd, 2013, thousands of events will echo across America and around the globe, all sharing a single goal: that God's great love for the orphan will find echo in our lives as well. (
