Invest in a brighter future
As 2022 approaches, we are filled with hope and expectation, focusing on Jesus. Psalm 37:5 says, “Commit your way to the LORD, trust also in Him, and He will do it.” We will continue to commit our ways to Him and watch Him do what only He can!
This year was incredibly challenging in Haiti. Increasing political unrest, the assassination of Haiti’s president, and another major earthquake in southern Haiti have left the country in its most unstable condition in decades. Many have lost hope for Haiti. But God has been faithful to our staff and kids. They are experiencing God’s faithful provision and never went without their six basic needs.
While many Haitians seek answers, our staff and children are sharing the LUV of Jesus. Through your partnership, we employ hundreds of in-country staff. Please pray for their spiritual and leadership development and boldness to proclaim Jesus as the hope that Haiti needs.
Today, 13 of our children are in trade school to become electricians, plumbers, and seamstresses. Nearly 300 children from our Children’s Village and surrounding community attend Coreluv’s K-9th grade school, receiving a quality education and spiritual formation.
South Asia faced increasing challenges this year as well. Multiple pandemic waves swept the country, but God gave our staff favor with local officials and wisdom to modify feeding procedures. To God’s glory, all of our feeding centers continued to provide meals and share the LUV of Jesus with over 400 children daily. This year, we have been able to provide around 140,000 meals! God is so faithful and true!
As we celebrate 10 years and the seeds sown by so many of you, we can’t help but focus on one story in particular. This year, 16 of our children made a deeper commitment to pursue their relationship with God! This is why we do what we do — to introduce every child to their Heavenly Father who loves them and made them with purpose. These children are finding hope and life in the One who has called them each by name! See these children’s faces at coreluv.org/eoy.
Looking ahead, we see many exciting things on the horizon. Thanks to your partnership, we have commitments to fully fund Phase 1 of our Special Needs Village! Please pray for God to open doors for the right location so construction can begin. We continue to expand our Transition Program, working with our children from a young age to provide one-on-one coaching and assess their path to successful adulthood. We believe every child will play a role in changing their communities and country.
Lastly, God is doing something with Coreluv in the nations, opening doors to more opportunities! More countries mean more children rescued and knowing their Heavenly Father. We can’t wait to share what God is doing. Stay tuned!
We fix our eyes on Jesus through it all, knowing He is faithful and true to His word. He is the One who takes up the cause of the orphan and widow, and He invites each of us to partner with Him in that cause.
Would you consider making a year-end gift to invest in the children God has entrusted to us and make their Christmas special this year? Your investment provides the six basic needs today and helps give our children a brighter future!
Thank you for using what’s in your hand to help to end the orphan crisis. We pray the Lord will continue to guide, bless and protect you as you Defend the Orphan!
In His service,
