Gods heart for the orphans.

Many times in life there are people who are unappreciated, abused, or abandoned. The poor, the widow, and the orphan often fall into this category. They are the forgotten…the unseen. But while the rest of the world may overlook them, God doesn’t. Scripture is clear that God has a special love in His heart for children. Jesus stopped, despite His disciples’ rebuke, to spend time loving on little children. He also tells us to be like little children and to view Him as our Father.

If Jesus has a heart for all children, how great do you think His love is especially for those who are left behind without parents to love and guide them? God tells us again and again in His word that He loves orphans and has an incredibly compassionate heart for them. He is their Father and their Protector, and He invites us…His children…to participate with Him to care for them. This is the sole reason we are here.www.ceapu.com

When it comes to orphans…

God is a Loving Father

The Bible illustrates over and over that God loves orphans, that He holds them close to His heart, that He has compassion and mercy on them. Although they may not have an earthly father, He is their eternal Father and longs for them to enter into an intimate relationship with Him. They may be overlooked in this world, but God sees them and chooses them. LOOK

“A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling. God sets the lonely in families …” (Psalms 68:5-6), “For in you the fatherless find compassion.” (Hosea 14:3 NIV), “I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.” (John 14:18), “You have been the helper of the orphan.” (Psalm 10:14) and

 “For in you the orphan finds mercy.” (Hosea 14:3 NLT)

 God is a Mighty Protector

Not only does God passionately love the orphan, He proudly protects them. Scripture gives us multiple warnings from God against those who mistreat or oppress the orphan. This is in such alignment with the Fatherly love He has for them. If you love someone, you will defend them at all costs. If you see someone abusing them, they better watch out because you’ll come after them and make them stop! This is exactly how the Bible describes God’s stance against anyone who is messing with His children.

“Do not take advantage of a widow or an orphan. If you do and they cry out to me, I will certainly hear their cry.” (Exodus 22:22-23)

“He executes justice for the orphan and the widow.” (Deuteronomy 10:18)

 “Do not mistreat or do violence to the stranger, the orphan, or the widow.” (Jeremiah 22:3)

“Then I will draw near to you for judgment; and I will be a swift witness against…those who oppress…the widow and the orphan.” (Malachi 3:5)

 God Invites All of Us to Join Him in Caring for Orphans.

So what about those who are not oppressing the orphan? Clearly, we’re not in danger of the wrath of an angry Father, but God still calls us to do more. God has made His people, His church, and His disciples to stand as one and connect their hearts with His. He invites us to partner with Him to care for, love, and defend the orphan. Although this is something that God can do on His own, He desires to have us work with Him. Isn’t that amazing? But this isn’t something we can do from the stands. This is an intentional invitation from the Lord to get up, get involved, and give back to Him as we care for His children.

“Learn to do good; seek justice, reprove the ruthless, defend the orphan, and plead for the widow.” (Isaiah 1:17)

“When you reap your harvest in your field and have forgotten a sheaf in the field, you shall not go back to get it; it shall be for the alien, for the orphan, and for the widow, in order that the LORD your God may bless you in all the work of your hands.” (Deuteronomy 24:19)

 “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)

“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.” (Proverbs 24:12)

As we discover God’s heart for the orphan, we can’t help but recognize the similarity of His heart for us – for you and me. God is also our loving Father, our Mighty Protector, and Generously Invites others to care and defend us. He pursued us when we were abandoned, alone, and lost. He took us in, giving us the “right to be children of God” (John 1:12).

Don’t you see, we are not to simply pity orphans and feel bad for them? We are called to be filled with compassion because we can relate. We were once orphans too, before our heavenly Father adopted us into His eternal family. Now He’s calling us to join in His work: to love, pray, advocate, defend, sponsor, support, and adopt.

SPONSOR A CHILD/CEAPU

african boy seeking sponsorWhen you sponsor a child through Christian Efforts against Poverty Uganda, you are helping give an orphaned, abandoned and vulnerable child a family and a future. Children who have lost everything get a mother, brothers and sisters and everything they need to have a normal childhood. There are many in this category that are waiting for you.

As a child sponsor, your monthly gift of $39 goes to helping raise your sponsored child. That means you are providing food, clothing, parental care, housing, education and healthcare to a child in need.

CEAPU project provides love, care and support to 50 orphaned abandoned and vulnerable children in Kisoro district Uganda.

We believe that no child should grow up alone.

We hope you do too.

SPONSOR A CHILD IN UGANDA

SPONSOR A CHILD IN UGANDA.

For just $39 a month, you can provide a child in poverty with school fees and uniforms they need to go to school. What’s more, you can send them to a Bible based church each week. This unique combination gives children the opportunity to escape poverty and bring change to their families and communities for a life time. Choose to sponsor a child to day.

Our project commits to find the poorest children in their communities and register them into our programme, regardless of their faith or background because we are non-denominational. We then link each child with a sponsor who begins to make a difference in the life of the child through their letters, prayers and donations.

Your sponsored child will be given the care and resources they need to develop in every area of their lives – their mind, body and relationships, your donation will be used for

  • Fees, and uniforms to go to school
  • Nutritious food
  • Health check-ups
  • Personal attention and guidance from loving staff members
  • An age-appropriate Bible and biblical teaching
  • Literacy and life skills training
  • Encouragement from your letters

We share God’s love with the children we care for, but we don’t require any child to become a follower of Jesus be a part of our programme and receive the benefits. We are committed to working with the poorest of the poor so we help children from all backgrounds regardless of their religion.

CEAPUGANDA program is life changing and you don’t just have to take our word for it! According to us each child under our project should be able to study and finish school. They should also be able to enter salaried employment.

As soon as CEAPUGANDA has registered a child in need into our programme, we start looking for a sponsor to support them. Visit us at www.ceapu/the children and choose a child for yourself. Then you can send us a mail to let us know the child you have decided to sponsor.

About Uganda

Ugandan families and communities struggle to access healthcare, education and other basic services and young children often lack in the four areas of development. The country’s health indicators are among the lowest in sub-Saharan African. Preventable diseases – including prenatal and maternal illnesses, malaria and diarrhea claim many lives of young children before age 10. In south western Uganda-Kisoro poverty, the lack of protection for children, little food or no food at all is a common problem .The situation is as alarming in such a way that some families eat in shifts. A member who eats lunch is not liable for super. This is due to many children in the families. As a result most children leave school to fend for their survival working as house girls and shepherds for the richer families to get food. It should be noted that a parent earns an average of just $1 a day by digging for others and doing any other casual worker

Our Work

CEAPU Children’s ministry continues to focus education, health, food and economic security activities and how these initiatives can be more closely integrated to restore hope for a better future. But our overall goal is to show these children and their carte takers the love of God so that at the end of it all they will come to the knowledge of salvation and confess Christ as their personal Lord and savior.

Sponsor A Child

Since May 2015, Ceapu Children’s ministry in Uganda has worked with local church and mothers union of Willow Field Parish Church-Ireland UK to design Sponsorship programs for children. Our target is to help children to grow up in a way that they will be able to transform their societies, our programs work to make a healthy and safe environment where children can learn and grow well in all aspects of life spiritually, physically, economically and socially. Our programs designed for primary school going children are in a way that builds their esteem needs and informs them that their past does not determine their future. We also provide health care, and education to all our beneficiaries both children and their care takers. Thanks to all our project sponsors for the work they are doing to restore hope for the needy children in Uganda the almighty God will always bless the work of their hands.

THE CHALLENGE!!!

African baby in dirtYesterday is gone, today has come, and tomorrow is on its way but yesterday is remarkable day in the live of our beneficiaries and us as a project in general.We thank our dear sponsors and those praying for us out there. It was a very big blessing for us to see Adam Purvis come around to help to the distribution of soap and Vaseline to all the children after his preaching to our children and their children.

1 John 4:7-14 in his speech,he challenged the caregivers that we ought to love one another because God is the author of love,he further stressed it out very well that love must originate from their families and that weather they have food, clothes, school tuition, books etc it does not matter if their parents do not tell them that they love  them and then actually do to them the acts of love.

So will you please have a child to whom you will show Gods love by telling them you love them,praying for them, sponsoring their education, sending them a letter or helping supply their school needs. Remember your decision on this matter could bring a life lasting change in the life of a child in Uganda.

Partner with us therefore in praying for the Purvis family who have been here for the last six months helping to see that the implementation of CEAPU is a success and our dear friend John Kinton as they go back to USA on Monday 27/July/2015. We hope they reach safely and we hope they will come back again

We love and are waiting for you to act.

SPONSORSHIP

Child Development through sponsorship is our main program.The funds that we receive are used for spiritual, cognitive, social and economic development of the children living in poverty so that they can know that someone somewhere loves them and then learn to appreciate God for such love and grow up to love others in the future. So we link children in need with a sponsors who are able and willing to support the children. A sponsor gives to the child/children registered with CEAPU as though giving to the Lord. It is the Lord who pays back to the sponsor. Our sponsored children have a duty to pray and write to the sponsors.

“For if you give, you will get! Your gift will return to you in full and overflowing measure, pressed down, shaken together to make room for more….” Luke 6:38

Our prayer is that you too will be willing to help a child in need here in Uganda by sponsoring a child, by donating to the project, sending a message of encouragement, writing a letter to the children and by praying for our ministry.
