Hope For AIDS Orphans

 This is a week that has many activities and remembrances of The Sanctity Of Life. While more areas of concentration are centered on the appalling fact of abortion, I also want to speak on the subject of the rights of those children who have been left orphaned due to AIDS. Many of these orphans  live in areas that are considered Third World countries. Their lives are already filled with hunger: They hunger for food to fill their empty bellies, they hunger for the spiritual truth that there is a God who loves them, and they hunger for the touch of a parent who loves them. Hope For AIDS Orphans is an outreach of Cross International, a Christian relief and development charity based in Florida. This ministry provides food, shelter, education, and meets medical needs to some of the poorest in dozens of countries.

I know that it is easy to get overwhelmed with all of the needs in the world, especially when you are struggling with meeting those within your own family, but there are more ways than one to help. Please check out the Hope For Aids Orphans website to see the 3 ways listed  that people can help Express Care, Share Their Story, and Give Hope. 

 For the fatherless receives compassion in You. - Hosea 14:3 
We are here to do serve others as we would serve Him. Even if you cannot make the difference the the lives of many, perhaps you can make the difference in the life of one child.

"Christ has no body on earth but yours, no hands but yours, no feet but yours. Yours are the eyes through which Christ's compassion for the world is to look out; yours are the feet with which He is to go about doing good; and yours are the hands with which He is to bless us now." ~Saint Teresa of Avila
