Keep an ear out this week – on Wednesday October 15th, Kay Warren will be featured on Focus on the Family, discussing the role of the church and every believer in caring for orphans. In the hour long segment, Kay re-tells her journey with HIV&AIDS from the time God broke her heart for the hurting, leading her to a passion for the many people living with AIDS, and for the children who were left orphaned and alone by parents who died from this disease. Her message is a call for the church to step up and speak up for those who cannot speak up for themselves.

 

“Mothers [who are dying] in every country ask the same question: who will take care of my children when I die? Does the church have an answer? Does your church have an answer to that question?”

 

Kay Warren’s first experience with HIV and orphans came while flipping through a magazine where pictures of men, women and children, weak and dying from the horrific disease, shattered her, illuminating to the brokenness of the world and her own heart. This one small experience sent her on a journey on which she became, what she terms, “gloriously ruined” and “dangerously surrendered” to God’s will for her life. Kay now calls on the church to take up the cause of those who cannot stand up for themselves – children living outside of parental care.

 

Every believer can play a role in ending the orphan crisis. As Kay asks, “If you’re going to be ruined, why not be ruined for the kingdom of God?”
