I’m an orphan-I lost my dad early to Alzheimers. We had few options to pay for his care while he was ill but God came through in a miraculous way. We could hardly believe or understand the provision but we will always be grateful.

For widows in Asia, there is no government assistance or social programs. They are viewed as a curse, the reason for their husband’s death and are shunned. The lack of resources will often drive them to starvation or prostitution. Like my family, they need God to come through in a miraculous way.

I am raising $1000 which will support five widows this year. This campaign is to glorify my Father’s name and to honor my dad’s memory whom I miss every day. God calls us to care for the widows and the orphans and this is simple way to reach out in faith. God loves these women and wants you and I to communicate His love in a tangible and desperately needed way.

Recently, I’ve been asking myself what I’m doing to step out in faith and it was hard for me to come up with anything. Raising $1000 is a big number but I believe God is able and waiting willingly for me to move. I’m not going to stand still any longer–I’m going to have faith that He owns the cattle on a thousand hills. I hope you will take this chance to be a part of what He’s doing by donating to my campaign in a way that challenges you.

“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” ~James 1:27

About Widows

Upon becoming a widow in South Asia, a woman is blamed for her husband's death and enters a life of shame. Burdened with the responsibility to care for her children alone, she is often forced into begging or even prostitution.

You donation will help GFA give widows a means of renewable income, like a sewing machine or farm animals. You'll also help with daily essentials, like blankets and water filters.

This support will be given through the local church, giving widows a chance to learn about the love of Jesus Christ.
