Orphan ministry grows in Central Asia.

By February 26, 2007

Central Asia (MNN) — Slavic Gospel Association is excited
to see the growth in a recent project in Central Asia. 

A North American partner helped provide funding for a new
orphanage.  The picture is dismal for
many children in these orphanages.  Some
are abandoned, homeless, or their parents have been imprisoned. For others,
difficult economic situations force parents to bring their children to an
orphanage with the hopes of being able to take them back again sometime in the
future.

Because of their approach with the children, a number of
state-run orphanages are allowing local missionaries and church workers to come
in and share Christ's love. The evangelical churches SGA serves want to expand
this ministry to reach even more children.

Through this new Orphans Reborn location, workers from a
local evangelical church will have an opportunity to work with disabled
children. Through regular visits, the teams give them Bibles, provide emergency
food and clothing, and disciple those who choose to follow the Lord.

As a result, Christians forge new friendships and share the
Gospel with the children. As the community sees this, it helps build more
evangelistic bridges.

SGA offers a sponsorship program to help connect other
believers with these children.  $30 enables
Orphans Reborn to reach one child for a whole year.  Each child will receive a children's Bible
and study materials, prizes for progress in the program, as well as
supplemental humanitarian aid when possible. The church workers will also
receive teaching aids and supplies to help them in their discipleship of the
children, ongoing leadership training, transportation to and from the
orphanages and other necessary items.
