Vision: To care for the orphaned and the fatherless in meeting their physical, emotional, behavioral, and spiritual needs by providing a family home environment which trains them up in the knowledge and Love of God.
To enrich the lives of children and develop character through learning and living by creating a stable and loving home environment and by having the community in which they live participate in their general development.
Under His Wings was designed to look at the lives of each individual child and prayerfully consider their needs and strengths within the family unit and provide for them in a way to promote healthy growth into mature, productive adults.
UHW was also created to help other foster/adoptive families and single parent families to become better equipped to care for their children.
Although my father and my mother have forsaken me, yet the Lord will take me up [adopt me as His child].
To acquire property and housing to accommodate our ministry in a greater capacity. Our home is a mission outreach for children to live and learn and play without hindrance or fear. We would like to provide permanency for more children, take temporary placements and provide respite care for other foster/adoptive/single parent families. This will help these families have a safe place for their children while they work, need a break, or are in transitioning period.
Additionally, we will have a suite for traveling families who are coming through our area and need a place to stay while receiving their newest additions to their families through adoption.
Under His Wings will provide educational resources to those in need in our community struggling with children with challenging behaviors or children with special needs. We will be a place where families can get together and encourage one another, and learn to live in community with each other so no one is lacking. We will be a place where other families can come for prayer and spiritual needs to be met. We will provide a place for foster parenting meetings to be held as well as special events surrounding our ministry and other community organizations who have the same purposes in mind.
Another goal is to raise up, provide for, and shepherd over other homes for orphaned children in our community and in other nations. These will be homes where the children will have permanency-a forever family; free from fear or hindrance to their growth. Placing widows as mothers to orphans and having the community in which they live become the father to the fatherless.
We are praying, asking, and believing the Lord to send those who can see the vision and prayerfully consider how they might partner with us in bringing this vision to its fullest potential.
This is why ministry to children is so important. Because they unashamedly and without fear will in turn minister to others. Jesse started a conversation with an elderly woman at Wal-mart which turned into them talking about Jesus and him praying for her and she in return praying for him. Read More.
