Here’s something that we love: young orphaned children experiencing the love of their Heavenly Father! And not only are these young ones experiencing the love of God, they are also learning to share His grace and glory with those around them.

At Orphan Home outreach center, we are discipling over 200 orphaned and underprivileged children who live in the rural regions of China. They are surrounded by extreme poverty, brokenness, and many times, deep despair. But if there’s one thing that we know God loves to do it is cause beauty to arise from the ashes.

An excerpt from David Joannes’ new book, The Space Between Memories: Recollections from a 21st Century Missionary, says it best:

I’ve heard it said that God gives beauty for ashes. So, too, He evokes holy calling from unassuming spots, pulling passion from the profane, wringing vision from vile waters. He is in the business of transformation, of altering atmospheres, taking the squalid and making it exquisite.

Happy New Year from all our missionaries at Within Reach Global! Here's a few photos of the orphaned children we are…

During the final few days of 2016, our missionaries gathered the orphans they are caring for and the children gave gifts to kids in the surrounding regions. They passed our school supplies, clothing, and smiles. But more than that, they shared the love of a Heavenly Father who is passionate for these little ones. He watches over the orphan and the widow. He is intimately concerned with these precious souls.

It’s a powerful image: orphaned children giving gifts to impoverished kids! It’s a challenge for us—we who have so much—to step out of our comfort zones to bless those in dire straights.

This is fertile soil! This is where revival is taking place! This is where the Kingdom of God is permeating the atmosphere. So with that in mind, will you consider sowing financially into this ministry? Perhaps God is leading you to make a special donation to help reach these children. Or even better, you are being led to join our Monthly Prayer and Financial Support Team.

In any case, may these images stir your soul to understand another dimension of the Father’s love for His creation. He will stop at nothing to see these young ones gathered under His wings. And you are a part of this powerful narrative! Join us as we bring hope to those who have never experienced the presence of God before.
