Why Do We Go?
We go because Jesus has commanded us to go. In James 1:27 God tells us:
“Religion that 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.”
I want to thank everyone who supports Operation Mary. It is because of your
donations, both in offerings and many priceless baby and children clothes,
toys, games, blankets and prayer that this ministry still exist. Everyone who
has ever gone on an Operation Mary Trip have come back with a new outlook
on the plight of these precious orphans and a greater commitment and desire
to help them.
We are excited in seeing what God can and will do with faithful and obedient
people. Those that go on an Operation Mary trip are not going on a vacation.
They willingly give of their time, talents and love to serve! There are many
busy and long days for the team and field advisors but God always gives us
strength and the energy to complete all that needs to be accomplished.
Praise his Holy Name!
I want to give special thanks to all of the field representatives who year after
year, invite us back to minister to these previous orphans, and who diligently
seek more places for us to minister, while providing us with translators, room
and board, and transportation needed while we're in Ukraine.
The interaction the teams have with these little babies and children is devoted
to expressing God's love to them. What a privilege it is to hold and hug these
precious children as we sing and pray with them. Much time, work and
money goes into preparing each trip. Every dollar spent and all of the
sacrifices made is for God's glory! Is God calling you to serve?
Next Trip: 2018 (a Date to be Scheduled). Is God speaking to you about his
forgotten children in the Ukraine?
