Orphan Camps 2015!  

This summer, God has given us the opportunity to hold 16 Orphan Camps in the Kherson, Rovno, Dnepropetrovsk and Poltava regions of Ukraine. Around 1340 orphans and orphanage graduates from 20 orphanages and vocational colleges will be attending these camps. 

 Our Orphan Camps will be taking place almost the whole summer long.  Agape volunteers, in large numbers, have demonstrated that they are more than ready to travel to the camps, more than glad to love on these precious children. After the camps are over, our volunteers and staff stay in touch with the children throughout the course of the school year; they visit them regularly (in many cases, teaching weekly Bible lessons); take them home on the weekends, take them to church; they pray for and with them; they try to just be friends, staying in touch, calling, corresponding through social media, etc. 

At this time, five camps have already been held. We thank the Lord for his faithfulness and for HIs working in the hearts of orphans and staff alike. Thank you for your financial and prayer support that makes these camps possible! 

We would like to ask for you to keep these camps in your prayers - we really need that support! If you would like to set a time of prayer and fasting for this ministry, we would be very grateful. Pray that the time these children spend at camp will not only be a time of rest and relaxation physically, mentally and emotionally… but time that the Lord uses to bring them to Himself. Pray that many children would be born again as a result of their time in camp - that they would be adopted into the family of their Heavenly Father and begin growing in their relationships with Him!

If you feel the Lord would have you support this camp ministry financially as well as in your prayers, we would be very grateful. You can send donations earmarked ‘Orphan Camps 2015.’ 100% of your donation will go to covering camp costs.
