God in His holy dwelling is a Father of the fatherless and a champion of widows– Psalm 68:5
Father’s Day is just around the corner!
For many this is a wonderful celebration of love and appreciation for their father. For others it is a very different day as they think about the dad they lost or the father they never had. For our children in Moldova it is just that.
The children JMI serves with are orphaned, abandoned, and acutely vulnerable. Many of them have never met their own father. Like 9 year old Calin whose mother passed away when he was only 2 years old, and his father did not want him. Calin describes his worst day as the day when he was left without a mother and found out that his father did not love him.
Or there’s Tatiana, who has never met her father and is unable to live with her mother. She now lives with her aunt. When our team asked her what her dream was, she replied, “my dream is to have a father.” Both Calin and Tatiana are two of many children in our vulnerable child sponsorship program.
We are privileged to be able to share the good news that they are not forgotten or abandoned but are loved by the Father of all fathers. This Father’s Day we invite you to partner with us, to care for the fatherless and honor your own Dad with a special gift, by giving to the work of JMI.
