On August 20th, some of the leading thinkers in foster care will gather for one day to share ideas and experiences that are making a difference throughout the country.
Why Adoption and Orphan Care?
Safe Harbor Adoption & Orphan Care offers no NEW ideas, but seeks to be an instrument that proclaims biblical ideas. Our call is to reflect God's image as Redeemer, defender, provider and Father. Our cause is for those who have NO VOICE.
Proverbs 31:8 (The Message)
8-9 "Speak up for the people who have no voice,
for the rights of all the down-and-outers.
Speak out for justice!
Stand up for the poor and destitute!"
Seldom do we hear about the great needs of orphans. Attending Conferences and concerts, they are rarely the keynote speakers. Though they may be the subject of a news broadcast, the TV channel can be changed. We live in comfort, as if the orphans do not exist. Orphans do exist and God's people are called to defend, protect, and deliver them from oppression.
Helping the poor is not something God asks His people to do. It is something, throughout all generations, God instructs us to do. Orphan care is an expression of practical Christianity. When we truly listen to the heartbeat of the Heavenly Father, God's people are moved from tears to action!
Safe Harbor Adoption & Orphan Care makes God's people aware of the tragedy that is taking place around the world and in our communities. Together we can change the situation. Together, we can discover God-sized ideas for solutions to the crisis.
