Welcome

Safe Harbor Adoption & Orphan Care Ministry's purpose is to increase awareness of the Heavenly Father's passion for looking after orphans by loving them like Jesus.

Active compassion is necessary!

Love that is demonstrated through:

  • global orphan care
  • Adoptive/Fostering families
  • encouragement of those who bring orphans into their homes
  • teams who give hands-on involvement are vital to the journey of orphan care
  • mobilizing churches, institutions, and groups that contribute prayer, visitation, and finances

We are adopted by our Heavenly Father into His family- God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what He wanted to do and it gave him great pleasure (Ephesians 1:5, NLT).

His active compassion drives us to make a difference in the life of a child-an ETERNAL difference!

It only takes one to reach one!

Safe Harbor at "Show Hope"

show-hope-522Safe Harbor A & O Ministries had the privilege of serving with Show Hope for the 4th year during Steven Curtis Chapman's spring tour advocating for orphans around the world.

Show Hope provides ways to help ease the financial burden for families for adoption.

We were blessed to receive a grant to help bring our beautiful daughter, Joy home from Hong Kong.

The Chapman's especially have a heart for special needs children. They have helped fund the building of Maria's House of Hope in China providing essential medical needs for children while they wait for their "forever family" to find them. It has saved many lives and proven to be such a huge blessing to so many children. (Take a moment and visit Show Hope's website and learn more!)

As we served alongside our children and helped advocate we received such an amazing blessing as we visited with other families who have a heart and desire to make a difference in the lives of children all around the globe. We worshiped together with Steven and his friends during the "Songs and Stories Tour" and finally ended the night with the awesome opportunity of spreading the news of the More4Orphan Summit March 9-10th at Vineyard Columbus, OH.

Words cannot express what a fantastic evening it was and the blessings we witnessed! Show Hope-THANK YOU! THANK YOU for all you do! It is our greatest privilege to work with you!

And Mr. Josh Wilson—You made my night as I heard you sing live my favorite song---"I Refuse". Allow me to share the lyrics in closing! The great commission directs us to "GO!" When we are tempted to "stay put" and not move...I SHOUT aloud these lyrics:

I Refuse lyrics

Songwriters: Benjamin Glover;Joshua David Wilson

Sometimes I

I just want to close my eyes

And act like everyone's alright

When I know they're not

This world needs God

But it's easier to stand and watch

I could say a prayer and just move on

Like nothing's wrong

But I refuse

'Cause I don't want to live like I don't care

I don't want to say another empty prayer

Oh, I refuse

To sit around and wait for someone else

To do what God has called me to do myself

Oh, I could choose

Not to move but I refuse

I can hear the least of these

Crying out so desperately

And I know we are the hands and feet

Of You, oh God

So, if You say move

It's time for me to follow through

And do what I was made to do

Show them who You are

[From: http://www.elyrics.net/read/j/josh-wilson-lyrics/i-refuse-lyrics.html]

'Cause I don't want to live like I don't care

I don't want to say another empty prayer

Oh, I refuse

To sit around and wait for someone else

To do what God has called me to do myself

Oh, I could choose

Not to move but I refuse

To stand and watch the weary and lost

Cry out for help

I refuse to turn my back

And try and act like all is well

I refuse to stay unchanged

To wait another day, to die to myself

I refuse to make one more excuse

'Cause I don't want to live like I don't care

I don't want to say another empty prayer

Oh, I refuse

To sit around and wait for someone else

To do what God has called me to do myself

Oh, I could choose

Not to move but I refuse

I refuse

I refuse
