Is There Not A Cause Briefing with Shandra Carter of Arrow Children and Family Ministries 1/19/2016 on Sex Trafficking


Interview with Shandra Carter The Executive Director of Freedom Place, the home and program for girls that have been involved in sex trafficking and what we can do to help...Here is a story of one incident:

It was always the same message, and it was sent to more than 800 girls on social media, most often to those posting about fights with their parents or feeling isolated at school. “You’re pretty,” the message said. “You could make some money.” Many were intrigued, including a 17-year-old Fairfax County, Virginia girl, who responded and arranged a meeting. She soon found herself trapped in a car with members of a violent gang operating in the affluent suburbs. One of the men pulled her out of the car and raped her. When she resisted, he cut her with a knife. He then took her to an apartment building, where she was forced to have sex with more than a dozen men. When she was finally driven home early the next day, she was told if she said anything, they’d come back and kill her.

Missions Radio Interview with Bruce Kendrick of Embrace Texas


Embrace's work is two-fold: providing services to at-risk, foster and adopted children and families in our local community and equipping new and existing church orphan care ministries across the country.  Our local efforts provide us with the experience and expertise to speak to other churches regarding what works and is needed.  It is never our goal to force our vision or the details of our programs into the context of other churches; however, there are some comparable components and philosophies true for every arena.  Below you'll find a broad overview of what Embrace Texas does on the ground locally as well as our work in ministry development nationally.  We believe we must multiply ministry in strategic partnerships with other churches in order to fully answer the biblical mandates to "take up the cause of the fatherless" (Isaiah 1:17).

Is There Not A Cause with Richard Baker of Serving Orphans Worldwide


The Church has always been involved in orphan care. Many organizations focused on building orphanages during the past thirty years. However, with the economic downturn of 2009, many homes struggled to survive as ongoing support declined rapidly.

That’s the crisis that sparked the beginning of Serving Orphans Worldwide in 2010. We realized that while we may not be able to bring every orphan into our homes, we can work diligently to better the homes where so many orphaned children are found today.

Interview with Aaron Scofield of Child Bridge

We find and support foster and adoptive families for Montana children in need
Website Designed by Child Bridge © 2015 at Homestead™ Create a Website and List Your Business
Currently, there are approximately 2,700 children are in the Montana foster care system, and some of these children are available for adoption. Children who have been abused or neglected need a safe haven, whether it is temporary or permanent. With too few families to care for these children, they may be removed from familiar surroundings, and often bounce from place to place. And far too many adoptable children are languishing in the Montana foster care system without permanent families to care for them.

Interview with Karensa Stephenson on Missions Radio


Missions Radio’s Tuesday Morning Briefing of the Orphan Crisis on “Is There Not A Cause”


With Guest Debi Tengler of Arrow Child and family Ministries 

Why does Foster Care even matter?

·         67% of those in human sex trafficking come from foster care

o   Over 100,000 children today in the US are involved in commercial sexual exploitation

·        72 % of those incarcerated were once in foster care

·         To transform society we can make a huge impact by taking care of those who are considered by many to be “throwaway” children

·         The  first institution created was the family, our hearts long for the unconditional love a family can bring

·         We can be the hope the world longs for by modeling the love of Christ right in our own home.
