A small Russian boy living in an orphanage, a widow living in Middle Tennessee, and a group of young people desperate for pure religion.
What could these three things possibly have in common? All three come together to play key roles in an exciting fundraising opportunity! Both Hands, through its partnership with Lifesong for Orphans is an organization dedicated to comforting widows and helping orphans. A group of friends, along with the adoptive family, fix up a widow's house and ask people to sponsor them. The money raised will be used to bring an orphan into his/her forever family. This is a win/win for everyone!
We believe adoption at its core is evangelism-a vital part of the Great Commission is bringing the mission field home. God desires orphans from all nations to be adopted into Christ-honoring families so they may ultimately be adopted into His eternal family through Jesus Christ. God calls us to fulfill James 1:27, "to look after orphans and widows in their distress..." Some are called to pray, some to give financially, some to go on mission trips, and some to adopt.
When families sense God's call and joyfully step out in faith and obedience , the financial barrier prevents many godly families from adopting. Lifesong believes God rises up these families "for such a time as this..." We have partnered with Both Hands to provide an innovative method to help remove the financial barrier to adoption.
All funds raised through the Lifesong/Both Hands partnership will be given to the adoptive family as a grant to cover their adoption expenses.
Your gift is tax-deductible and you will receive a tax-deductible receipt.
Thank you for investing in the Kingdom through prayer and finances - it will be an investment with an eternal return! (Matt 6:20)
