Our God is Faithful

Hello my friends. I hope that you and your family are well. It has been eight weeks since we started this journey with Covid-19 at the Children's Home. Our cottage staff, children, Pathfinders, and HomePlace families have been on campus since the stay-at-home order was issued. During this time, our cottage staff has assumed many additional responsibilities. They are serving as tutors, recreation workers, and more. I cannot thank them enough for their incredible service.

Thankfully, none of our residents or staff have tested positive for the virus. We are grateful for that. For now, we are not having tours on campus and we have postponed all church activities. Our administrative staff is working from home and our Granberry counselors are using teleconferencing to maintain sessions for clients.

Though the days have been filled with unique challenges, they have also provided some unique opportunities. One of our cottage dads is teaching guitar lessons for the children in his cottage. Another cottage couple has helped the children start a vegetable garden. In other cottages several of the children are learning to cook.

Like you, our cottages are participating in online Sunday services. Cottage parents continue to provide daily devotionals and some have reported that the crisis has led to meaningful discussions with the children on how God provides in trying times.

So many of you have called or written, asking how you can help with any needs we might have. We are so grateful for your concern and your care. For now, we are doing well. I would say that there are three things you can do for us.

1. Take care of your self and your family. The more we comply with guidelines, the quicker this crisis will end for all of us.

2.  Pray for our children. They have faced many challenges in their young lives but nothing like this.

3. Pray of our Cottage Parents. Every day for them is an overtime day. With the challenges of providing meals and filling the day with activities they need your prayers.

We know that God is going to see us through this crisis. He is always faithful to provide us with His presence, His peace, and more. In turn, we need to be faithful to Him through our worship, our confidence in His provision, and our continued service. That's what we are doing every day at your Louisiana Baptist Children's Home.

 

Thank you again for your prayers and your continued support. We are praying for you, your family, and your church. God bless.
