We begin 2024 by saying "THANK YOU!"

Thank you first for the Christmas gifts you provided for our children on-campus and round the state in our foster homes. I wish you could have seen their faces on Christmas morning as they opened the presents you gave. Thank you also for the parties that brought so much joy to their hearts. Most of all, thank you for providing us with the opportunity to share the true meaning of Christmas with many who have never heard the story of Jesus.

Now, let me tell you about the exciting news for 2024. IT’S OUR 125th ANNIVERSARY! That’s right. The Children’s Home is celebrating all year long. We have several special events planned. By May we will have a new Legacy Room that shows how God has used the ministry of LBCH since 1899. In June, we will have a special Homecoming Reunion for our former residents and staff. In July, we will celebrate the establishment of LBCH by Louisiana Baptists.

This is a great year for your church, group, or class to take a tour of the Children’s Home. We would love to show you how your support is providing love, care, and hope in Christ for children and families in need.

In 2024, we will also be opening our new Compassion Center. The Center will expand our Compassion for Kids ministry to serve more economically challenged children and their families. Twenty-five percent of the work will serve the Monroe area. The remainder will help expand existing compassion ministries throughout north and

central Louisiana. The goal is to provide support and a positive Christian witness for
25,000 people annually.

Also, in 2024, we are hitting the road again to promote foster care and adoption ministries. One of the greatest opportunities we have to reach the next generation of children in need is through foster care and adoption ministry. Louisiana has between 3,000 and 4,000 children in its foster care system. Our goal is to have 100s of children waking up every morning in a loving, Christian home, going to church every Sunday, and learning about God’s great love in Christ.

The Connect1Child Tour begins in February. We have set aside two Sundays for each month so please call soon to secure your date. Our foster care and adoption specialists are also available to help churches and Baptist associations develop foster care and adoption ministries for families in their local area. Call our Family Services office for more information.

These are exciting days at the Children’s Home. God is opening so many doors to reach more children and others through our Christ-centered ministries. Thank you again for your continued support. Together with God we are meeting needs and changing lives in Jesus’ name at your Louisiana Baptist Children’s Home. God bless.


Your gift provides love, care, and hope in Christ for children and families in need. 56% of all funding comes from individuals and churches. We receive no state or federal funding for the care of children. All gifts are tax-deductible and greatly appreciated.
