On Thursday, October 27th, 2011 at Battle Creek Church in Broken Arrow, OK a collaboration of churches and the Office of Faith Based Initiatives will host Conference 8046. A movement to get churches involved in supporting local orphans. In January 2011, 8046 were in states custody. For information about the Conference click HERE . Also please take time to hear from the mouth of an Oklahoma orphan...and her finding her forever family by clicking HERE. There are too many children in Oklahoma Shelters and Foster Homes. Going does not mean you have to adopt or foster, but you should participate in SOME way in the life of a child. So far only 170 have registered to attend in the Tulsa County area. Everyone is welcome. It is entirely free all you have to do is register (Click HERE to do so).

Today I found the new website for Oklahoma's Waiting Child. I have been sitting here for about an hour staring at Elmer, tears streaming down my face. He is the waiting child of the month. He is beautiful. I am wondering when he will find his family. HERE is a link to the website. Take a look at Elmer....I can't stop looking at him! I also found a neat "thing" we have here in Oklahoma. It is called the Waiting Child Heart Gallery. HERE is the link to the Tour Schedule so that when the Waiting Child Heart Gallery is near you - you can go visit!
