God's Heart for the Orphan

God's intense compassion for the orphaned children is repeated over and over in the Bible. Evil men are decried for oppressing the fatherless. "Pure and undefiled religion" is described by God as caring for the orphan in distress.

On the part of these children, God is not silent.

While adoption is vital and desperately needed, it isn't the only aspect of orphan ministry. There is room for the entire body of Christ - singles, young adults, teenagers - to rally around these children.

God is stirring His people, awakening the Church to bring hope. Let's go.

How You Can Help

Prayer! Pray for God to use us as His vessel to help the orphan children and to put a protective hedge around us and our team while in Colombia.


We are always in need of the following:

  • socks
  • underwear
  • feminine hygiene products
  • clothes
  • Spanish Bibles
  • Spanish/English dictionaries


And of course, donations are a huge need. We often do not know the needs of the orphan children until we get there, as there are so many children that come and go. We try to meet the immediate needs such as food and clothing, medical needs, and of course our love and attention is beyond value.
100% of your donations goes directly to helping us minister to the orphan children.
If you have always wanted to go on a mission trip and do something for the Lord, ministering the orphans is one that will bless you beyond your imagination.
Monetary donations go a long way for us to be able to help the children of Colombia. In June, we discovered an unexpected need, and we were able to buy shoes for all the boys at one of the institutions due to your generosity.


Making a donation in memory of a special person is a lovely way to celebrate their life, and do something really positive to help the lives of others at the same time. We are always particularly moved by donations made in memory.


We will always send a thank-you recognizing a donation made in memory of someone. If you would like anyone to be notified of your donation then please just let us know. Every donation you make, goes towards our work to build a better future for children in Colombia.

We are an approved 501(c)3 Foundation

A letter for you from Steven Curtis Chapman












Dear Friend,

We serve an amazing God who cares so much for the hurting, the lost, the rejected. Throughout the Scriptures, from Deut. 10:18, "He defends the cause of the fatherless..." to James 1:27, "Religion that is pure and undefiled before the Father is this: to care for (visit) orphans and widows in their distress...", we see that God's heart beats for orphans. But even more amazing is the fact that He asks us, His church, to join Him in His Kingdom work.

It's like God is leaning down, as a father to his child, saying, "Do you want to do something crazy? I want to invite you to truly come and know me, to see me show up, to see me come in power and bring glory to my name. I want to invite you to care for orphans and participate in adoption, because I am the Father to the Fatherless and I will be found there.” What an amazing invitation! Show Hope wants to help you answer this call.

As you step out in faith, we encourage you to H.O.P.E.- Hear from God, Obey Him, Plan properly, and Expect miracles! Remember, God delights in putting the fatherless in families, just as it gave Him great pleasure to purchase our freedom and bring us to Himself through the blood of Jesus. When we were alone, rejected, undeserving and broken, He became a Father to the fatherless; let us, as the body of Christ, go forth and do likewise.

With hope for the fatherless,
