Faith makes all things possible.
Hope makes all things work.
Love makes all things beautiful.
The greatest gift that Hopegivers gives to the 6,000 orphans we serve in India and Haiti is an opportunity to develop their faith in God. When they surrender to His will in their lives, it really does change their hopelessness into a new world of unlimited possibilities.
To share hope with children who already have experienced the pain of hopelessness is an amazing thing to witness. Their lives have fallen apart with either the death of one or both parents, being abandoned on the streets by parents who can not afford to feed them. Some come out of a leper colony where Hopegivers is their only hope of them avoiding a lifetime of leprosy. That is life changing experience.
To see the joy and light of Jesus shine through their faces when they realize that their Creator loves them so deeply and has provided a place for them in their present need and an even greater place for them one day in Heaven is one of the greatest gifts of all. A child who knows unconditional love has the greatest gift that life can offer.
“But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.” (1 Thessalonians 5:8)
We invite you to join with us in our Christmas project of providing “Hope Chests” to our orphans in India and Haiti. For only $50 you can provide needed items such as a dress or pants/shirt for the children, shoes, socks, toiletries, toothbrush, and other needed items.
In the giving of gifts, we are showing these beautiful children in a tangible way that faith, hope and love are important. Show your love for the orphans by sending your $50 check today.
“It’s not enough to love the children, it is necessary that they are aware that they are loved.”
