Christ at the centre
In their hearts humans plan their course,
but the Lord establishes their steps.
As a Christian charity, we believe that our strength comes from the Lord. It has only been through Him that the ability to help vulnerable orphans, adults in crisis and the disadvantaged since 1993 has been possible!
GOD IS IN CHARGE
We are acutely aware of our short comings and lack of power to make a difference in our own strength. As Proverbs 16 v 9 states, we can make plans but it is the Lord who establishes our steps. Without Him we can do nothing! Time and time again God has directed our path, leading us into new situations and providing at exactly the right time.
At a time when mentors were struggling to find shelter for orphans, they would often bring young people home to their own already overcrowded 1 bed flat. It was an unmanageable situation and couldn't continue. Through prayer, the idea of supporting a new transition home was born and before we knew it, a generous legacy gift plus a fundraising campaign, inspiring hundreds of donations, made this dream a reality!
There have been multiple occasions when we've been blessed with gifts; funding for building projects, new vehicles, emergency medical support... often the exact amount needed for the next challenge ahead!
In the UK we are a small team of 5 (2 full time, 3 part time). All of us are Christians from different church denominations, but with the same firm belief that without God in the driving seat we couldn't do this work. Each day our team meets (in person or through the miracle of Skype!) for a short time of prayer and discussion. We commit each working day, remember our faithful mentors and bring before Him our orphans and adults in crisis.
OUR SUPPORT NETWORK
The majority of our supporters have originated from churches having heard about us through a visiting speaker. Many have accommodated us in their own homes to enable a visit from us, have joined us on trips to Russia, have fundraised and prayed for this work daily! We are extremely blessed to have such faithful prayer warriors out there supporting and listening for God's calling to give.
