Dear church, family, and friends of Greg and Jackie Mullis,
Lifesong for Orphans (www.lifesongfororphans.org) is a non-profit Christian ministry dedicated to help meet the needs of orphan children around the world, and obey God’s call to “visit the fatherless…in their affliction” (James 1:27).
The number of children worldwide without families to love and care for them is astounding… there are over 5 million orphans in Ethiopia alone!
God tells us in His word He has heard the cry of the orphaned and abandoned children (Psalm 10:17, 18) and He has made a way for them to be cared for – through adoption. As believers, He adopted us into His family through Jesus Christ, and did not leave us as spiritual orphans!
We believe adoption at its core is evangelism--a vital part of the Great Commission is bringing the mission field home. God desires orphans from all nations to be adopted into Christ-honoring families so they may ultimately be adopted into His eternal family through Jesus Christ. God calls us to fulfill James 1:27, “visit the fatherless…” but not all are called to adopt. Some are called to pray, some to give financially, some to go on mission trips, and some to adopt.
Greg and Jackie have sensed God’s call . . . and have joyfully stepped out in faith and obedience to adopt 2 boys from Ethiopia. As you may already know, international adoption can cost around $30,000 and prevents many godly families from adopting. Lifesong believes God has raised up the Mullis family “for such a time as this…” and we have committed an Adoption Matching Grant of $2,500 to help raise the funds necessary to complete the adoption of this child. This means Lifesong for Orphans will match “dollar-for-dollar” everything the Mullis’ raise from their church, family, and friends between now and November 15, 2010, up to $2,500. We invite you to support them financially to make this adoption possible. Your gift is tax deductible and you will receive a tax-deductible receipt. *100% of all funds raised will go directly to cover adoption costs--nothing will be taken out for Lifesong for Orphans administrative costs.
Will you invest financially in the life of these boys? . . . It will be an investment with eternal return.
God bless you for laying your treasures up in Heaven,
p.s. I trust God will do great and mighty things through this, and all for His Glory!
