Invest in others

We grow by investing in others. By finding our unique place in God’s story and our unique spiritual giftings, we are able to serve and love others. Investing in others helps us strategically accomplish our mission as a church: To help next generations encounter and follow Jesus to bless a broken world.

International Partner Update

Mozambique has recently gone through challenges as both Cyclone Ida and Cyclone Kenneth hit the areas Orchard Hill partners with Food for the Hungry in. There was a lot of damage to both buildings and crops. Thankfully, all the Food for the Hungry staff were safe, along with the hundreds of children sponsored by Orchard Hill families.

The work that Food for the Hungry has been doing in Mozambique is making a huge impact. They’ve been able to be a strong leader in the disaster relief because of previous relationships with government officials and church and community leaders. They continue to find new opportunities in these challenges as they helped lead an initiative to captivate on the recently saturated ground to plant new crops.

United Christians International (UCI) in Haiti has walked through the challenge of political unrest this past year but continues with ministry despite these challenges. UCI aligns with Orchard Hill's mission of helping next generations encounter and follow Jesus. One way they do this is through sports. Recently, a few student volleyball teams (80 kids), got to travel to the championships. Many of these students have never been outside of their community. They got to play volleyball, but also to grow relationally and in leadership.

Although mission teams could not go to Mozambique and Haiti this summer, we are looking forward to future trips and opportunities. 

Do you want to make an impact in these communities? We continue to believe child sponsorship helps UCI and Food for the Hungry make huge differences in these communities.
