THE FUTURE OF OUR ORPHANAGE PARTNERSHIPS

BIG changes are happening with our Child Protection Centers.

Watch our Town Hall segment on the future of our orphanage partners, or read the full letter of explanation HERE.

We are fully committed to providing for the complete care of the 198 children served in our partner homes through the end of this year. Going forward, we are hopeful that this decision will enable us to provide even greater focus on our Local Church Initiative strategy, which is designed to break cycles of poverty by establishing a platform of health, nutrition, spiritual growth and education to equip children for future jobs. The Lord continues to go before us as we plan to expand our reach to 10,000 more vulnerable children in 2021.

The King Family

Rik King met Jorge on a mission trip around 2010. Jorge was a shy teenager who he engaged with and would quickly come to learn, was a very intelligent young man. Jorge had dreams for his future, to finish high school and become an engineer. Rik and his wife Peggy felt called to walk alongside him just as they would one of their own children. Their sponsorship kept lines of communication open while annual serving trips allowed time to nurture their relationship and even meet his father.

The Kings encouraged Jorge through times of uncertainty with his career and always told him they believed in him. Today Jorge is an independent adult, working for a large import/export company in Managua and keeps in touch with Rik and Peggy regularly.
