Hope For Orphan Graduates in Russia

The statistics are frightening for orphans in Russia: at least 10% try to commit suicide within 5 years of leaving the program, and more than half will end up succumbing to drug abuse, alcoholism, prostitution, and organized crime.
Orphan Outreach focuses on these at-risk graduates, and helps them learn the life skills they will need to thrive as adults. The first step is prayer.

When They Don’t Know How to Dream

The day had already been a long one by the time we arrived at the public school in Cerro de Oro, a small Mayan village on the shores of Lake Atitlan in Guatemala. The bus we were on struggled around the sharp curves and treacherous gravel roads that bore the scars of torrential rains and mudslides from seasons past. We were weary, but hopeful of what was to come. This would be a first for an Orphan Outreach mission team - spending time with the middle school students to talk about their worth and their dreams.

All of Us are Equal

The young man sits in the prayer room as the afternoon sun casts its golden light on the lush mountains outside. His frail teenage body looks suddenly so small on the bench. “I want to tell my story,” he said.

They Call Her Tia Lilly

Everyone calls her “Tia Lilly,” from the neighbors at the grocery store to the toddlers who waddle past her on their way to play with teams visiting from the United States. The teenage girls who she cares for every day say they want to be like her when they grow up.
