For this second year, the theme MORE, we will think about Isaiah 61:3b which says: “to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor.”
NEW NATIONAL PROJECT
The 5 initiatives will be:
1. SILVER LINING ORPHANAGE – ASIA/PACIFIC
Orphans find safety and security in a children’s home that provides a loving, parented family structure. Local seminary students help lead this ministry.
2. WOMEN’S MINISTRY CENTER – MEXICO
Hurting and overlooked women receive spiritual guidance, legal and financial counsel, and 48-hour crisis-care intervention at the Circle of Care Women’s Ministry Center, a ministry of Breath of Life Alliance Church in Guadalajara.
3. SANTIDOUGOU WIDOWS CENTER – BURKINA FASO
Young, deaf women receive sewing machines and training, and widows are given access to soap-making equipment and a moringa press at the Santidougou Widows Center. Daughters of widows receive one-year scholarships to complete high school.
4. CAMA ORPHAN PROJECT – VIETNAM
Single mothers are resourced to begin small, income-generating activities. Orphans receive tuition, school supplies, and monthly rice portions.
5. CRISIS PREGNANCY SHELTER – NORTH & CENTRAL ASIA
At risk migrant moms in crisis situations will receive temporary residence, practical support, counseling, and mentoring in life and mothering skills through the ministry of the shelter.
