Download HomeNews - January and February 2022
At the Children’s Home we begin 2022 by saying “Thank You!” Thank you for your generous support this past year. In 2021, through our various ministries, you provided love, care, and hope in Christ for over 3,200 children, families, and individuals. Thank you so much!
I wish I could tell you all the stories of changed lives. When I look at our children, I see them growing into all God has planned for them. I see joy instead of sadness. I see laughter instead of tears. I see hope instead of despair.
When I look at our HomePlace moms, I see peace instead of worry. I see courage instead of fear. I see victory instead of defeat. When I look at those who sought help through our Granberry Counseling Centers I see wholeness instead of brokenness. I see harmony instead of conflict.
I see the same results in Christian Women’s Job Corps, our Connect1Child foster care and adoption ministry, and our international orphan work in Haiti. As we provide love and care, God brings healing and hope.
In 2022, with your help, we will continue to provide life-changing ministries for children and families in need. In March we will open our newest HomePlace Cottage, Mary’s Place, which will provide housing for four additional families. Also, in the spring, we will begin construction on a new apartment complex which will house HomePlace families who are moving into the final phase of their family plan.
We are also expanding our Minister Care program to include residential housing for minister families that are in transition and missionaries who need housing during stateside assignments. Dr. Dennis Phelps is our new Director of Church, Minister, and Alumni Relations. He can provide the information you need for the new Minister Care Residential program.
Also in 2022, we are expanding our Compassion for Kids ministry to include a Mobile Compassion Center. Compassion for Kids provides life essentials for economically challenged children in northeast Louisiana. Each project is a partnership with a local church or ministry which provides continued contact with the families. The Mobile Compassion Center will allow us to bring items directly to the neighborhoods affected most by poverty. We will not only supply shoes, socks, coats, and food, but we will also provide each family with the good news of Christ.
These are exciting days at the Children’s Home. God is opening so many doors to reach more people with His love and the Gospel. Thank you so much for your continued support. Together with God we are meeting needs and changing lives at your Louisiana Baptist Children’s Home.
