Allred Family Christmas Fundraiser

The extended Allred Family hosted a Christmas Fundraiser for Orphans and raised $1,200.

  • $500 has been given to cover Zhao Jung Ping's cleft pallet surgery.
  • $400 has been given to cover supplies at the Baotou Children's Home for over a month. This gift will be sufficient to provide babies with infant formula and purchase general supplies that will help ensure a healthy and clean environment for the children.
  • $300 was given to purchase a hot water heater to provide for thousands of warm baths at the Baotou Children's Home.

These gifts to Baotou Children's Home expand Portion for Orphans' efforts to support this home: we have been covering rent on this home for the last year.

Upcoming Trip

I, Sally, am planning to spend a few months in Thailand and Nepal starting in April. Please pray over the planning of this trip. I will be working with Mercy International, a Christian Orphanage in Thailand, as well as meeting with organizations that are rescuing and serving exploited children. Then, I will spend a month with the girls in Nepal, teaching Bible, swimming and leadership skills and reading stories to all the little ones at night. This trip will also enable me to visit with the director concerning his request that we start a 2nd orphanage in Nepal. This is a great opportunity, please pray that God would clearly lead us.

Do you have more frequent flier miles than you can use? We'll take 'em! You can donate your miles to support visits to orphanages and other trips, such as the upcoming trip to Thailand and Nepal.

100% of your donations directly benefit the children, unless you specifically designate them for another purpose. If you would prefer to help us cover travel and administrative expenses, please note that on your check.


Prayer Requests

  • Wisdom and guidance for trip planning and decision-making.
  • Organizational growth – For the wisdom to delegate and for committed volunteers to take on key responsibilities.
  • Please continue to pray for peace in Kenya, and God’s protection on the most vulnerable children in that area.
