Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.
James 1:27 NKJV
*There are 140,000,000 orphans in the world!
*There are 400,000 children in the US foster care, 100,000 of whom are awaiting adoption!
*However, there are 350,000 churches in the US!
*The need can be met if we can get the Church on board!

We are not all called to foster care and adoption, but we are called to do something.
