James 1:27 ~ Living Word!

We received some astounding news yesterday! We've applied for four grants, and one program we are really excited about is the "Both Hands" Project through Lifesong For Orphans.

What's so exciting about Both Hands ~ One for the Orphan; One for the Widow is it brings James 1:27 to life! An adoptive family gets the opportunity to select a widow within the community, put together a team of volunteers to commit to send support letters to raise funds for the adoption and coordinate a makeover project for the widow's home!

We are approved for the Both Hands project! Now we are looking for a project supervisor, selecting a widow and putting our team together! It's going to be a long project, and we'll keep you posted. God is so good!

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. James 1:27
