What is Orphan Care?

The subheading for 'About Orphan Care'.

This section could have lots of written copy about the meaning of orphan care and the work God has been doing through the orphan care movement. This should mostly focus on orphan care specifically, not Hope Orphan Care, and not statistics or informational reports about the needs that exist today. The story of Hope Orphan Care will go below. Stats/reports will go on the Resources Page.

Speaking of which, something in this section might as well link directly to the resources page.

Another subheading

And now for some filler text from Mere Christianity: Imagine yourself as a living house. God comes in to rebuild that house. At first, perhaps, you can understand what He is doing. He is getting the drains right and stopping the leaks in the roof and so on; you knew that those jobs needed doing and so you are not surprised.

But presently He starts knocking the house about in a way that hurts abominably and does not seem to make any sense. What on earth is He up to? The explanation is that He is building quite a different house from the one you thought of - throwing out a new wing here, putting on an extra floor there, running up towers, making courtyards.

You thought you were being made into a decent little cottage: but He is building a palace. He intends to come and live in it Himself.

The Story of Hope Orphan Care

A subheading for Hope OC's origins.

This section should tell the story of how Hope Orphan Care came to be at Hope Chapel. It might include some of the info written in the document Leigh prepared. It should tell how God brought this about.

And now, for some more quotes from Mere Christianity: Your real, new self (which is Christ's and also yours, and yours just because it is His) will not come as long as you are looking for it. It will come when you are looking for Him. Does that sound strange?

The same principle holds, you know, for more everyday matters. Even in social life, you will never make a good impression on other people until you stop thinking about what sort of impression you are making. Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before) you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it.

The principle runs through all life from top to bottom. Give up yourself, and you will find your real self. Lose your life and you will save it. Submit to death, death of your ambitions and favourite wishes every day and death of your whole body in the end submit with every fibre of your being, and you will find eternal life.

Keep back nothing. Nothing that you have not given away will be really yours. Nothing in you that has not died will ever be raised from the dead. Look for yourself, and you will find in the long run only hatred, loneliness, despair, rage, ruin, and decay. But look for Christ and you will find Him, and with Him everything else thrown in.
