Sunday, November 4 is Orphan Sunday. This video is about the beginnings of this international movement. So often we in America think we have the answers to the world’s problems. This story shows how God so often works otherwise. There is so much wisdom and right thinking and excellent theology and gospel in this video. Take time to watch it. It will be 30 minutes well spent.
