Chad and I have been praying about when to take a trip to Africa. We have been looking at October. We have also been praying about what organization to take the trip with.
I was reminded today about a ministry called World Orphans. They have a unique set up for caring for the orphans of the world. They seek to place them in family settings rather than large institutionalized orphanages. They work closely with local churches in Africa and they employ native people as well as missionaries.
Check out their website for more explanation.
Anyway, they have a vision trip planned for Oct. 26-Nov. 4 (Only 10 days rather than 2 weeks--a big plus for our kids who will be staying here!). So we're looking into that.
