These are our kids, and we love them a ton!
What about kids who don’t have parents, or whose parents can’t care for them. Whose kids are they?
Who loves them? Who dreams of their future? Who fervently prays that God will guide and protect them.
Whose kids are they?
They’re OUR kids. You and me, those of us of privilege, and especially those of us that take Jesus seriously.
It’s this conviction that led Kara and I to start Immerse Arkansas. We kept meeting kids in foster care that were falling through the cracks. Kids that really needed someone to latch onto them. To love them. To pursue them. To not give up on them. And to give them a path toward overcoming.
Today at Immerse, that’s what we’re all about. Our goal is to transform youth from crisis into Overcomers. We do this through direct programs for older youth, combined with support for foster and adoptive families. Here’s what that looked like in 2018.
Our prayer is that a spirit of overcoming would break out over all youth from crisis, all foster and adoptive families, all mentors, all donors, all Sponsored Walkers, and over each person fighting for kids waiting for families.
The conviction that these are OUR kids is the same conviction that makes us passionate about Walk for the Waiting. It’s a great to way to raise funds to support Immerse Arkansas, Immerse Families, and our partners at The CALL, and Project Zero.
From all of us at Immerse, we appreciate you. Thanks for joining us in claiming responsibility for some wonderful kids that need us!
