Thank you for learning more during National Foster Care Month about the need for foster parents throughout Texas, the needs of children in the foster care system and how you can help individually or as a church.
We’ve been overwhelmed by the response to our new podcast library. We were glad to hear you were as encouraged and inspired as we were visiting with people about the needs of vulnerable children. We’ll release new podcast episodes in the near future and let you know when they debut.
But knowing about the issue of foster care and how you can help is only the first step. It must be followed by action.
James 2:14-17 tells us "What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to them, 'Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,' but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead."
It takes a village to raise a child. Your village. Now is the time to step up to meet the needs of a vulnerable child. Whether you become a foster parent, support families by providing respite care, volunteer to help families in your community or give financially, everyone has a role to play in meeting the urgent needs of these children.
