Молитва за сирот-video: Guest Post

My sister Lissie from the blog Impassioned Purity wrote this blog post. She went on a ten-day trip to St. Petersburg Russia to work in an orphanage not to mention the fact that we have nine siblings adopted from Russia. It is very exciting for us to see God working among the Ukrainian church and causing people to rise up and stand in the gap for these children who have no hope. Who better than the Church could take great care of these children, teaching them about Christ and giving them an eternal hope? Praise God! Thank you Lissie for allowing me to reshare this post on my blog! 


This video was created by Ukrainian Christians for Orphan Sunday (November 6, 2011): a day for the church to remember and act on behalf of the fatherless and vulnerable. In the words of Jedd Medefind on the Christian Alliance for orphans blog, the Ukrainian church is "on fire" in its desire to adopt and care for the orphans in its country. *Enter personal commentary: It makes me extremely excited to see Christ's church on the other side of the world passionately living out the Gospel to the needy!*

(The video is called "Prayer for Orphans," and the words at the end basically say that there are more than 30,000 orphans in Ukraine and that each person's prayer can make a difference.)

Is the church in America on fire to live out James 1:27? Please leave a comment if your church is doing something for Orphan Sunday! I would love to hear from you.
