Hands Across the Waters
An offering, collected by the children following the children’s story, funds a mission project to help needy children around the world, which changes every two years. Begun in 2005, this outreach has helped to stock a library at an orphanage in Mexico, assisted widows and orphans in India, assisted in building the first Adventist elementary school in Ukraine, and is accumulating funds to establish a Christian school in Tanzania.

Beginning in May, we will support the Grace for Orphans Scholarship Fund located in Namibia, Africa.  It is a humanitarian, mission-orientated organization, aimed at giving orphans the necessary resources to make it in life after the loss of their biological parents.  Our donations will support education, which is the most effective medium to prepare for a better and more successful future.
 
If you would like to contribute to this ministry, please make a check payable to Green Lake Church, write “Grace for Orphans” on the check memo line, and place it in the offering plate.

We envision our youth participating in mission trips to areas they have supported and catching a vision of how they can be God’s hands in blessing the desperately needy, both at home and abroad.
