As Christians, we are called to love one another. Caring for orphans and vulnerable children is one of the clearest expressions of the heart of God. It’s also one of the most tangible displays of the Gospel we’ll ever see.
God loves orphans and wants to redeem their stories, replacing pain with hope.
Cross International answered this call when we met Ana. Ana was born prematurely, and shortly after, found abandoned and suffering from severe hunger outside of the Caanan Orphanage malnutrition clinic, our ministry partner in Haiti. She was brought into the care of the Cross International family at Canaan Orphanage. Here, she receives the integrated care and love she needs to grow her mind, body, and spirit.
Jesus restores hope for vulnerable children.
The story of sixteen-year-old Immaculate is another great example of God’s amazing love for vulnerable children. Her dream of being a midwife seemed impossible two years ago, as she faced the likelihood of teen marriage and motherhood. But God led Immaculate and her mother to Project Princess Initiative (PPI), a Cross International ministry partner in Uganda where girls find hope, compassion, and opportunity for a better future. Today, instead of preparing to be young wives and mothers, Immaculate and her friends receive mentoring, life skills training, tutoring, health education, messages of faith, and a path to a life of possibility.
Every child has potential. They also deserve the opportunity to thrive.
We believe that children in crisis need opportunity. Our goal is to cultivate young hearts and minds for the Lord ― to bring spiritual peace and unleash the potential of boys and girls to achieve a more prosperous future. Vulnerable children like Ana and Immaculate are under the special care and protection of God. And it is our privilege, as His people, to be part of their redemption story.
Cross International partners with local organizations around the globe to give children a transformed life by equipping them with the food, education, healthcare, and spiritual guidance they need to become healthy, self-sufficient, and Christ-centered adults who will one day make a difference in their communities. Our ministries are holistic, meeting the physical and spiritual needs of children in their care and the needs of families in the community with the healthy foods, medicines, education, and love they need to grow.
Jesus mends hearts, restores peace, and gives vulnerable children a reason to smile and experience joy.
With the help of generous believers like you, Cross International can help write a new story of redemption for children throughout the world. We pray you’ll join us by supporting our Thriving Kids initiative to give lost and vulnerable children an opportunity to root their lives in the firm foundation of Jesus Christ.
Your generous gift will be used to support Cross International’s Thriving Kids initiative through June 30 2020, the close of our ministry’s fiscal year. In the event that more funds are raised than needed to fully fund the initiative, the excess funds, if any, will be used to meet the most urgent needs of the ministry and may be used in the following fiscal year.
