Creating A Family Environment
On Daily Faith, joining us is Pastor Greg Haswell. His passion is to equip the church to walk in its calling. Serving in the ministry for over thirty years with his wife, Michelle, Pastor Greg Haswell moved his family to America from South Africa. He planted a church, and he is the senior pastor of Northlands Church in Norcross, GA. He also serves as chairman of the global leadership council of World Without Orphans. This organization started in 2010 in Ukraine and is now in over eighty-five countries and growing strong. The word of God says in James 1:27, “Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.” The concept within the organization is to encourage the church to step up in its calling with grace, reaching beyond its limitations into God’s plan by adoption. Creating a family environment for these desperate children gives them a sense of self-worth and belonging. Once adopted, their identity has been changed from orphans to beloved children. If the church opened up their homes to one child, what impact would that have on God’s Kingdom?

The Cameron family started their missionary work over thirty years ago in a small, impoverished country in Eastern Europe when they adopted their son from an orphanage in Romania. Their hearts were struck by the horrendous living conditions lack of social support in these orphanages. They knew that they had to help in some way. The Orphans Hands ministry helps save and rescue these once desperate children from the risks of suffering a deadly life by human traffickers. In Moldova, The Orphans Hands ministry has a village of homes called Vatra Village and a house in Ukraine. Together they house around 75 rescued children and, by the mercies of God, are in the process of helping to support more children. Upon coming into our homes, our kids learn and discover their true identity in Jesus Christ by becoming sons and daughters. No longer orphans, these beloved children are now missionaries unto the Lord, serving and growing their relationship in Christ by the love of Jesus. They are currently in the middle of hosting a summer camp for the younger kids in nearby villages. Their hope in their outreach ministry is to reach this younger generation, in a communist country, for our Lord Jesus, one child at a time. We want to thank you for your generous love, prayers, and support in helping to change a life for God’s Kingdom. To learn more about The Orphans Hands ministry, please visit www.theorphanshands.org.
