World Orphan Day

See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! – 1 John 3:1

Throughout the Bible, God makes it clear that orphans hold a special place in His heart, and He commanding His people to protect and care for the outcast and fatherless. In fact, the book of James reveals: “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world” (James 1:27).

Since orphans hold a special place in the God’s Kingdom, we should look after these children as if they are our own.

On World Orphan Day, Cross International would like to thank our ministry partners around the globe who are following God’s command to care for the fatherless. These caring orphanages provide children with shelter, education and a loving family environment.

Caring for the world’s orphans is a big job, but when we come together as the Body of Christ, we can move mountains! Will you join Cross International as we minister to these precious children in the name of Jesus?
