Orphan Care

In Zeway, Ethiopia, over 100 orphans have lost both of their parents. With no social safety net for children, orphans are often left to care for themselves. They feel alone and forgotten. But God has not forgotten them.

In this interview, recorded at the Together for Adoption Conference, Matt and Julie Kouri and Dawit Kassaye Woldeyohannes share a new solution to the orphan crisis in Ethiopia.

It’s not an orphanage, and it’s not international adoption. Curious? Listen to the interview.

PU 008: Dependency

Today we look at how we can minister to the poor without taking over their lives, their communities, and their goals. There is a line between healthy reliance on other people (Galatians 6:2) and unhealthy dependency. Handouts send messages beyond the goal of charity. Playing God in the lives of the poor leads to a misunderstanding of who God really is.
