Lori and I had the opportunity to help Show Hope with sponsorship during A Night with the Chapmans tour. We saw first hand the work of God through lives that Show Hope has touched!

My words can't express my heart....

Last month a need was made known. A list of supplies were requested for Maria's Big House of Hope. (written by Cathy Troyer, Show Hope)

Around the world, millions of orphans live in institutions that are unable to care for the special medical needs of the children under their care. Millions more remain homeless and are left to secure their own shelter and comfort. These children are certainly among those Christ refers to as the “least of these.” Through Show Hope’s Special Care Centers in China, you can make a difference in the lives of some of these children!

As Show Hope’s flagship special care center, Maria’s Big House of Hope has already provided life-giving care and hope for hundreds of orphans with the most severe medical needs. Now, two additional centers have opened in Jiaozuo and Zhengzhou, extending this quality of care to waiting children.

One of the sweetest gifts in this work is the ability to see children who once sat on the edge of hopelessness find new hope. You can be a part of making this a reality. In addition to becoming a Show Hope sponsor, you can help provide much needed supplies for these special care centers. A short list of supplies is posted below...

Join us today in this exciting opportunity to transform the lives of these beautiful children. Join us in showing hope!
