A Covenant

My county has an average of 3,000 children in the foster care system during any given month. The orphanages of George Muller's day have gone out of favor, but the need is still there.

So what do you do with 3,000 children who have lost their parents or have been removed from their homes?

God directed one family to do something about this problem and in 2001, Covenant Community Services was created. It's mission is the “Placing (of) abused and neglected children in families that model the love of Jesus Christ." The mission is fulfilled as they recruit, train and certify foster families to provide safe, stable and loving homes for children to develop and grow in God’s love and grace.

What better place for an abused or neglected child than in the loving home of a Jesus loving family!

Wash yourselves; make yourselves clean; remove the evil of your deeds from before my eyes; cease to do evil, learn to do good; seek justice,correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow's cause.
(Isaiah 1:16-17)

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. (James 1:27)
