Every day families sacrifice to make a home for vulnerable children who are not safe in their own home. Each one of these children and youth were Made for Home by their Heavenly Father.
We met some of those precious families, some are fostering, some are taking care of children related to them, each one of them were loved on, given a sensory Xander bunny and gift cards to a fun experience.
As we serve families who provide a safe, loving, healing home for children in foster care, I am reminded that we are all made for Home, eternally. To make a way for us to have a way home came at great sacrifice for Jesus. While His life is the ultimate sacrifice, it inspires us to continue to serve and sacrifice so that children and families in foster care can have a safe loving place to call home.
It isn't always easy to make a home for vulnerable children but their difficult journey inspires us to keep working for the day that every child will have a loving home and a church to encourage and support them.
Would you be willing to walk, run, donate and volunteer to help make a safe, loving home for every child in foster care? During Foster Care Appreciation Month in May we will host our second annual Color Fun Walk & 5K Run at Freer Field in Ashland or remote where you live on your time. You can volunteer and still participate in raising funds and walking or running.
We walk, run, volunteer and give on behalf of over 15,000 children in Ohio who need a safe, loving home while healing takes place and for the nearly 3,000 children in Ohio that are still waiting for their forever home on earth. Giving your time and effort to Volunteer, to Walk/Run, to Donate will go directly to serving children and families in foster care in the counties we serve in north central Ohio.
While we work for every child to have a safe, loving home here we all need to know we are also Made for Home eternally. We pray this Easter season is a time to celebrate a relationship with your Heavenly Father through the sacrifice of Jesus. As we rejoice that He is Risen, may you know a personal relationship with a Risen Saviour, a great sacrifice that was made to give you a home forever.
