My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person,
he believed in me. - Jim Valvano
In just a few short days fathers all around the world will be celebrated. Neck ties, homemade cards colored with bright crayons, and hugs and kisses will be given to show the love.
These fathers are to be commended because by investing into the life of a child- they will make a profound effect on that child's life~ and therefore a profound effect on His kingdom.
In our homes here on earth we are taught through the love of a father- and through that love we see a reflection of our heavenly Father’s love. Through that love we learn confidence, compassion, strength, trust, faith and who we are in Christ.
But our God had a plan... He himself was more than willing to help make up for absent fathers. That is why He promised to become a 'father to the fatherless' (Psalms 68:5)... and we should see what a blessing it is to join Him and do the same.
Here at Village of Hope we strive to teach the fatherless who God truly is by providing Faith, Family and a Future but we can't do this on our own. We need you to join us and share your Fathers love.
So this Father’s Day, in honor of your earthly father- or better yet, in honor of your God- would you be willing to join us by reaching out to a child and providing them with an opportunity to experience the love of a family? The love of a mom and dad? And the love of The Father?

Thank you for bring hope to the least of these in His name.
Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom”. –Luke 12:32
