Fundraiser for Orphan Care

McCoy Family Fund Raiser and RAFFLE***!!!

We believe that God has called us to participate in orphan care ministry, specifically in the former USSR country of Ukraine.  While we do not yet know all that He has planned for us to do - we are eager to walk according to the knowledge that He HAS given us so far.  To that end, there are several opportunities to serve orphans in both the near and long term future - each of which we are anticipating that He will provide the means of accomplishing if He in fact wants us to do any of it.

 Project List:

  1. Short Term Mission Trip...............November '11 (Jeff, Anna, and Gracie)
  2. Orphan Hosting............................December '11
  3. Orphan Hosting Interview Trip......February '12
  4. Short Term Mission Trip...............May '12 (Amy +2 kiddos)
  5. Adoption.....................................As God leads

We believe that God has given us an income to be used for these projects, and so we are pouring every extra dime we make into these opportunities..  We also realize at the same time that He may want to stretch our faith by making us rely on Him through the blessings from others, as well as bless some of you as a result of your generous giving to these endeavors.  Whether God gives us all the money we need through our own income streams, or if He uses some of you to supply our need, we are confident that He will give us all that we need to accomplish His will.  If you sense the Lord compelling you to give to our projects below, please know that we are grateful to Him and to you for your support.  May you be richly blessed, many times over, in return for your sacrificial giving!

Current Fundraising Project:
  1. Orphan Hosting Participation in December (Cost is $6,000.00)
WHAT: We are planning on providing a home to an orphan sibling pair through New Horizons for Children.

WHO:  A pair of sisters from Ukraine or Latvia.  The New Horizons team has 6 more days of interviewing to do.  We are prayfully considering their feedback and getting more information about the children being hosted this winter.  We will be making a decision on which children we should host in the next week or so.

WHERE: These kids will fly from Ukraine to NC to spend one month with our family here in the US.

WHY:  To provide the experience of love and attention from family to orphans, meeting physical, spiritual, and emotional needs.  To demonstrate and teach them about the all sufficient and abundant love of their heavenly Father through Christ Jesus.  To give them medical attention and care in the areas where they may need it.  To explore the possibilities of adoption of these particular children, listening to the Lord's voice through prayer and observing how they interact with our family.  To raise awareness of orphan care opportunities with those around us who God may also be calling to help!  To advocate for these children and help connect them with forever families

  1. I saw on a slightly older post that you guys might be heading to Ukraine in November or so. Any chance that you might be willing to take a letter and package over there for an in-process family? If so, let me know how I can contact you. Thanks!

  2. We are planning to go in November at this point still, but much of that final planning will be determined by what we find out regarding grandma and the girls thoughts over the next month or so. We are definitely going to UKR in Nov, but it may or may not include a visit to Kherson for the reasons noted. Check back with us in a month or so and we will have better plans in place by then. Thanks, if we go, we would love to be the delivery agent for your correspondence! -Jeff

  3. I didn't check back in because I didn't want to bother you considering the news about the girls/grandma that was posted just a day or two after my earlier inquiry... Will you be traveling to that orphanage this month?

  4. What area would you need a package sent to? I can ask on another forum if anyone is going there and try to connect you with them. There is a trip in the near future, but there will be a jam-packed schedule and very little opportunity to go beyond scheduled events.
