Ministry Spotlight: Orphans Treasure Box
We're taking this year to focus on local ministries each month. We hope that you will learn about these ministries and that God will create a heart in you to learn more, give or pray. Our focus for May is Orphan's Treasure Box.
From Orphan's Treasure Box:
Orphans Treasure Box is unique because we sell donated books through an on-line bookstore and give away all the profits to orphans, foster kids and adopting families.
Currently, we support:
-Sending 50 South African orphans to school for a year
-Caring for 20 Ethiopian orphan teens who’ve aged out of the system
-Keeping Peruvian teens off the street through a Christian home in Trujillo
-Providing home repairs for foster moms in central Illinois
-Giving adoption grants to Christian couples adopting older & special needs orphans
-The Connecting Group, a post adoption support group with Illini Christian Ministries
(See our website for more information on these vital ministries.)
Ways you can help now:
-If you’re a book lover or know someone who is, please consider buying from us. We ship to all 50 states. Combine your love for books with your compassion for children!
-Consider putting together a book drive with your church, business, or family.
-Learn more about this ministry at our website and tell your friends.
- Most importantly, please pray for us. We are asking God to open the door for us to have a fully functioning book store in the Champaign/Urbana area. Just imagine. A book store selling all kinds of books (Christian/Fiction/Children’s/History/Home Improvement/ Cooking/Home School) with ALL PROFITS going to vulnerable kids and adopting families. It can happen. Pray it does!
