Orphanology unveils the grassroots movement that's engaged in a comprehensive response to serve hundreds of millions of orphans and "functionally parentless" children.
You'll see a breadth of ways to care with biblical perspective and reasons why we must. Heartwarming, personal stories and vivid illustrations from a growing network of families, churches, and organizations that cross cultures show how to respond to God's mandate. The book empowers:
- churches-to plan preaching, teaching, ministering, missions, funding adoption, supporting orphans; - individuals and families-to overcome challenges and uncertainties; - every believer-to gain insights to help orphans in numerous ways.
Discover how to adopt, assist orphans in transition, engage in foster care, partner with faith-based fostering agencies, and become orphan hosts. Along with their families' adoption stories, Merida and Morton give steps for action and features on churches doing orphan ministry, faith-based children's homes, orphanhosting groups, and other resources.
