Equipping God's People to Create Missional Culture

Weddings and Orphans

WeddingJust as I am getting ready to take a half dozen people to Kenya this Friday, some good friends of mine, Peter and Sarah Davis, emailed me an idea of how they could creatively participate in the ministry we have to orphans in Lodwar, Kenya through the Unembraced.

Peter Davis’ blog entry starts like this: Is your wedding going to make a difference? Well, of course it will matter to you, your family, and your friends! But what if your wedding could make a difference in the lives of orphans in Kenya?

Sarah and I had such a great time with the $29 Wedding Contest a few weeks ago, we decided to go one step further. We couldn’t be any more excited about announcing our next chance to give back!

Some of our great friends at Kairos Los Angeles, the church we were a part of when we lived in LA, have started an organization called The Unembraced. Together with a group of churches in the Turkana region of Kenya, The Unembraced is dedicated to the mission of serving the 300 orphans of Lodwar, one of the poorest towns in Kenya. They are in the process of buying land and repairing a multi-purpose building that will enable them to provide food, clothing, health care, and education to these children.

OrphansSo what does wedding photography have to do with The Unembraced?

Please go over to Peter Davis’ blog entry for more information and you will learn how you can get a “Class A” photographer for your wedding, and have 100% of your of the money you spend for your photographer go to help orphans in Kenya. Talk about a great deal.

I’m thankful for Peter and Sarah Davis and people like them who are thinking creatively how to bless those who are without parents, without food and often without hope. Please go to Peter’s blog to get more information and if you want, please link to his blog entry, for that link could mean the difference for many orphans. Peter and Sarah are living in Charlottesville, Virginia.
