FROM THE DIRECTOR OF MISSIONS

 

                  

 

Did you know?

  • Livings within the boundaries of our association we have one of the State of Oklahoma’s highest populations of foster families.
     
  • Because of Oklahoma’s state budget shortfalls funding for foster families has been cut dramatically over the last several years
     
  • More funding cuts loom in the very near future as well
     
  • A growing number of foster families are finding it difficult to meet the needs of the children in their care.
     
  • A very high percentages (over 90 percent) of these families are unchurched
     
  • Churches can come along side foster families to help them to offer love and support.
     
  • Showing these families the love of Christ is a tremendous way to evangelize and grow the kingdom of God.

The Le Flore Baptist Association’s “Fostering Love Network” is designed to join churches with foster families in their area.  Our volunteers receive calls from foster families desiring help and we connect them with participating churches in the network so they can minister to, and encourage these families.  Also provide biblical values and concepts through weekly Bible studies and prayer groups.

Your church can become a participating church by simply calling one of our coordinators and adding your church’s name to the network.  The LBA will provide contact persons from each church with orientation training and give them assistance in becoming a “Fostering Love Network” partner.

Can you see the opportunity here?  Your church comes along side one, or more, families in your area, you love them, encourage them, minister to them, witness to them, pray for them and they are engulfed in the love of Christ.

New conversions are taking place in other associations that are working this concept of outreach and it will happen here too.  We are asking churches interested in becoming a “Fostering Love Network” partner to contact one of our volunteers today.
