Yes, I will give a gift to help plant seeds of hope for children!
His mother would leave him home alone with little money for food. Because he lacked the nutritious food his growing body needed, Cameron* became weak and malnourished. He was brought to live in one of our campus cottages at age 10. It quickly became apparent to us that Cameron’s health was very poor.
With the help of a specialized meal plan, medical care and love from his house parents, Cameron’s strength steadily increased and he gained a joyful smile! On weekends, Cameron loved to help in the small campus garden. The responsibility of gardening made him recognize that he had a purpose in life.
Cameron now lives in his forever home with his adoptive family. Just recently, Cameron started a food ministry at his school. His goal is to change the circumstances of children who may be in a similar situation. We are thrilled not only for Cameron’s success, but for how God is using Cameron in his community by impacting the lives of children!
In 2015, Florida Baptist Children’s Homes provided 155,384 services to precious children and families. We were able to meet tangible, immediate and long-term needs and show hurting children the life-changing love of Christ.
At Florida Baptist Children’s Homes, we believe that God is calling us to create and cultivate relationships that bring children out of desperation and into joyful assurance that they are loved and valued.
Will you help new seeds sprout so more children can be placed in loving homes and find safety and stability in difficult times? When you sow seeds through generous gifts and fervent prayers, you allow us to watch over a harvest that ripens in time and bears much fruit!
Together for Children,
