As a child, it's heartbreaking when you cannot trust your family to feed you, give you clean clothes that fit, provide you a safe home, or simply give you the love you long for.
At Baptist Children's Homes (BCH), out cottage parents stand waiting in the doors of our caring cottage homes and say "come" to these children who have been neglected and often abused. They become family to them. And they introduce children to the voice of Jesus Christ who says to them, "Come to Me...I will give you rest."
We continue to seek heavenly guidance and inspiration in all that we do. Please join us this week in prayer as we lift up the children and families across North Carolina and in Guatemala through the BCH ministry.
Through BCH's Annual Offering, 32,576 lives were ministered to in 2017 and 203 decisions for Jesus Christ were proclaimed!
As you pray this week, remember you are a part of BCH's mission of "Sharing Hope ... Changing Lives."
Thank you for joining us in prayer!
