James 1:27
Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.
Orphan Sunday was actually birthed through the inspiring generosity of our Christian brothers and sisters in Zambia.
In 2003, during the height of the AIDS crises, a Zambian pastor pleaded for his congregation to care for the AIDS orphans in their own community. The members of the church were poor themselves. But as the service ended, one after another stepped forward with money, food and other goods. Some even removed their own shoes and placed them in the offering for orphans.
This movement to care for orphans spread throughout Zambia. In time it reached the United States where the Christian Alliance for Orphans (CAFO), an alliance of churches and Christian organizations caring for orphans and vulnerable children, began promoting Orphan Sunday in the US.
In recognition of Orphan Sunday, we are partnering with GlobalFingerprints which is the child sponsorship arm of our denomination. One simple way for us to help orphans and other vulnerable children is to sponsor them. For $35 a month - a little more than one dollar a day - we can ensure that their nutritional, medical and educational needs are met and, even more importantly, that they learn about Jesus and are connected to a local church.
