Orphan Care - CarePortal
Our goal is to engage the members of South Tulsa Baptist in orphan care in big and small ways while never losing site of the goal to make sure every child grows up in a permanent family. Whether you have just a few minutes, a few hours, or even a lifetime to give, I pray you will join us on this journey of fulfilling the call of Isaiah 1:17 “Learn to do Right; Seek Justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the Fatherless: plead the cause of the widow.” and James 1:27 "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."
An estimated 153 million orphans world-wide are trapped in a cycle of hopelessness, needing love, care and protection. Adoption costs of $20-30K seem “financially impossible” to many Christian families. This can result in orphans missing out on Christ honoring forever families.
