Together, we can make a difference.
Thank you for your interest in Mission 1:27. We are an Orphan Care and Adoption Ministry with a passion to help make a difference in the lives of orphans around the world. We are all called to be the hands and feet of Jesus, and in doing so it is our mission to live out James 1:27, "Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress". We prayed for God to break our hearts for what breaks His, and He did. Proverbs 24:12 tells us, “Once our eyes are opened, we can’t pretend we don’t know what to do. God who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know and holds us responsible to act.” God opened our eyes, and as a result, Mission 1:27 was birthed in our hearts.
The desire of Mission 1:27 is to offer Orphan Care by helping provide emergency and basic needs for orphanages and children's homes around the world. We are currently working with several orphanages and the list of needs grow daily. This can become overwhelming at times, but we serve a faithful God and our trust is in Him to put the right people in our paths to enable us to do all that we can for the least of these. If you are interested in partnering with us, we invite you to explore just a few of our current projects that we have available. If you are interested in staying informed of upcoming projects, please consider joining our Mailing List.
Mission 1:27 also serves as an Adoption Ministry, and it is our honor to help families who are considering adoption, to encourage those already on the journey, or those who need post-adoption support. Once a year, Mission 1:27 holds an adoption seminar which offers a wealth of information on the adoption process. We invite you to visit our Adoption Advocacy section for more information. We have many resources available, and we want to help encourage you during your journey. Three of our five staff members have/are in the process of adopting internationally, and we are happy to assist you with any questions or concerns that you may have. We are here to serve you, so please don't hesitate to contact us.
Attending an Orphan Care Mission Trip, hosted by Mission 1:27, is just another way you can minister to orphaned and vulnerable children. We offer domestic or international orphan care mission trips once a year to one of the many orphanages that we have partnered with. We invite you to learn more about becoming a Mission Team Member, please visit our Missions page for upcoming trips and more information.
As the body of Christ, we are called to defend the cause of the fatherless, and to help take care of the least of these. Not every believer is called to adopt, but each of us are called to help. We encourage you to learn more about Mission 1:27, and the many ways you can get involved. "If only 7 percent of the 2 billion Christians in the world would care for a single orphan in distress, there would effectively be no more orphans. If everybody would be willing to simply do something to care for one of these precious treasures, I think we would be amazed by just how much we could change the world. We can each do something, whether it is donating, adopting, fostering, mentoring, visiting orphans or supporting families that have taken in orphans." -(Stephen Curtis Chapman). We ask you to prayerfully consider what it is that God is calling you to do. If God is calling you to start an Orphan Care Ministry in your church, let us walk beside you, we would love for the opportunity to speak with you. If you are a church leader, and you're interested in partnering with us on an on-going basis or maybe you're interested in learning more about what we're doing here at Mission 1:27, please contact Mission 1:27 Director, Darren Lewis.
As you read through our site, may God touch your heart with the need that is so great. We appreciate your prayers and support as we fill the call to defend the fatherless that God has placed so heavy on our hearts. Thank you for your interest and being a part of what God is doing through Mission 1:27.
