Dear Portion for Orphans Partners,
As a team, we all are expanding rapidly and your generosity towards
orphans is MULTIPLYING! Here’s a look at the fruit of your
Vacation Bible Schools raise funds for orphans
Way to go Patch and RB VBS participants, you all raised a total of $4,800! Read on, we have since reached our goal!
Christian Lewis, for the 2nd year in a row, set out to get the whole community involved through his own brownie awareness project. He raised more than $120! Way to run with it Christian!
In August, my husband, Casey, and I took a vacation to Thailand. We spent the first week visiting more than 150 children that PFO serves at 3 Mercy International centers across Northern Thailand. The standard of care that Mercy is providing to vulnerable children in Thailand is exceptional and we are so grateful, along with you all, to be further expanding their work.
Children who do not have moms and dads of their own are thriving in this Christ-centered environment full of love and acceptance. Our commitment to support their work was affirmed in every way. We are hoping to fund a covered playground, including play equipment and a small built-in library, for the kids in Petchabun, Thailand. The cost of this project is $20,000. Please consider if you are able to help us make this a 2009 Christmas gift .

John Kay, from Marshall, TX, recently went to China as a photographer on behalf of Portion for Orphans. John raised his own funds for this trip as well as $3,800 that is being used to purchase coal for New Hope Foundation. This will help keep all the children at New Hope warm throughout the winter, which is especially important considering that New Hope is a foster home for orphans with medical needs. The upcoming Hope Run & Walk (February 6, 2010) will raise funds for New Hope Foundation.

Ephesians 3:20-21 says that God is “…able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work in us, to him be glory…” God has once again put his compassion for orphans on display by inspiring you all to give so generously. Thank you!

Please consider talking with your pastor about a special Christmas project that helps orphans around the world. The project involves putting up a small Christmas tree covered in ornaments that represent individual orphans who need monthly sponsors.
Sponsors help cover the daily needs of their child and receive periodic updates and pictures. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for a Sponsorship Project Packet.
Saturday, February 6th we’ll be hosting the 7th Annual Hope Run & Walk in Marshall, TX, at 9am. It costs $15 for adults, $10 for students. 100% of the proceeds will benefit orphans at New Hope Foundation in China. www.hopefosterhome.com.
- One of the orphanage directors is in constant pain due to a spinal condition. Please pray that God would give her, and all the directors, daily strength to continue on.
- That God would continue to guide and bless the work of PFO.
- PFOs upcoming sponsorship project, for various locations to partner with us in displaying the ornaments.
Thanks for partnering with us!
