BFR News // October 2021
We are so excited to share that all our kids, nursery to secondary, will be returning to a new school year in mid-October! Additionally, over the next several months we are praying that God will provide us 4 more sponsors for the current kids in our program whose sponsors had to drop off. Then, as soon as we’re able to secure sponsors for those kiddos, we have 13 more children that have been identified in 3 different sectors to be brought into the program. Additionally, some more good news is that, with God’s grace, we are planning to take new pics of the kids this quarter and have you updated photos before the new year! Of course that all depends on travel restrictions. We haven’t been able to do this since 2019, so we are excited to show you how much they’ve grown!
Orphan Sunday is coming up on November 7. If you are unfamiliar, Orphan Sunday is an internationally recognized day set aside for Christians to stand for the orphan and vulnerable. Starting at a church in Zambia, it now has participation in over 120 countries. For Orphan Sunday, Best Family is looking to achieve two goals to serve the orphaned and vulnerable in our program. First, we are looking to find partner organizations to come alongside us in meeting needs for children above and beyond the regular sponsorship support, such as housing needs and supplies. Second, we are looking to find sponsors for the waiting children in our program. Learn more about Orphan Sunday and how you can get involved this year in looking after orphans and widows in their distress.

We are all beautiful in our own unique and wonderful ways. God's hands made us and formed us into the beautiful creation we are. Ask your kiddo what is one physical feature they like about themselves. Then share something that you like about yourself.
