Christians Adopting Rwandan Orphans

"For the LORD your God is the God of gods and the Lord of lords, the great, the mighty, and the awesome God who does not show partiality nor take a bribe. He executes justice for the orphan and the widow, and shows His love for the alien by giving him food and clothing" (Deuteronomy 10:17-18, NASB).

I read a great story in The Oklahoman today about Christians who are adopting orphaned children from Rwanda. They are members of the Quail Springs Church of Christ in Oklahoma City, a congregation that supports missionaries serving Christ's Church in Rwanda. After visiting an orphanage in the capitol city of Rwanda, a family decided to go beyond giving money (which is a very godly thing to do, of course). They decided to start the process of adopting two of the children. When other members of the church found out, they were inspired to do the same. The entire article may be read at
