One Gift, One Child: To see the orphaned, abandoned, poor and needy REDEEMED.
One Gift, One Child exists to provide a safe place for children to come and receive healing through love, discipleship and counseling. One Gift, One Child seeks to show value to those who are abused, neglected, thrown away and looked down upon by the Haitian culture. OGOC has a strong focus on corrupt Haitian orphanages to provide a transition center where orphanages being shut down can come for counseling and discipleship. These abused children do not have centers or homes to go to before being transitioned home to their families or placed in other orphanages. This has many aspects but the main goal is to provide EVERY child a safe environment for where they are protected from abuse, trafficking and slavery. If a child cannot be reunited with their family, then a Haitian foster family will be raised up in order to ensure children are in a loving home versus an institution. We work to empower families to keep their children or take back their children they have given away. We believe God has a plan to redeem every area of this nation and this is one specific area we are called to. We are working in a community to raise up Haitian families whose lives are being transformed and willing to say YES to loving the least of these. God values every, single child in Haiti. There is never one that is too lost for God to find.
We are called to LOVE. We are called to PRAY. We are called to STAND IN THE GAP. We are called to BE A VOICE FOR THE VOICELESS. We are called to be the HANDS AND FEET OF JESUS. We are not here to change others, but to love them to Jesus. In a country full of need, we are called to journey alongside those that the Lord wants to REDEEM. We are called to make a difference.
The importance of prayer cannot be emphasized more. In the Western culture, the word prayer is often thrown around to where it loses the true meaning. It has become a phrase versus an action. One Gift, One Child is seeking prayer warriors. What does it take? Your time, your commitment and your relationship with the Lord. Matthew 18:20 says, "where two or three are gathered in my Name, I am with them." We need you! You are important in this vision. Please stand with us on the battlefield and pray for the leaders and the orphans in Haiti. The Lord will be faithful and break your heart for this country where children are overlooked. We strive to be 90% prayer as we STAND IN THE GAP for children who do not have a voice to speak.
