For the next couple of day, I am in Louisville, Kentucky at Southeast Christian Church at the Christian Alliance for Orphans Summit (aka #summit7). The Summit brings a wide variety of people who are orphan advocates. As Brett Devries said in his opening comments,
We are called together to inspire, equip, breathe life into the church so they can go out and care for orphans.
Just wanted to give you a heads up before I flood you with notes from the conference. I hope you will take a few minutes to scan through them and see if there any topics that interest you.
You will quickly see that orphan advocacy is more than a conversation about adoption. It is also a conversation about legislation, foster care, mentoring, trafficking, supporting indigenous cultures and families, and most importantly emulating God’s love for us.
Thank you for following along on this journey. If you would like to follow others who are passionate about this issue, be sure to check out the conversation on twitter.
