I decided to make this page in order to raise awareness of different ministries around the world who are helping those closest to the heart of Hashem–the orphans and widows. Not only are all of these ministries taking the good news of Messiah Yeshua to their people, they are also sharing their love for the Torah.
James 1:27 says: “Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.”
Even if you cannot support these organizations with money, you can lift up the men and women who are serving in our stead in the places that they live, and you can also pray for the hearts of the people they minister to and live around to be receptive to the Gospel of the Kingdom.
Gampala Ministries: The Gampala family has been sharing and teaching the good news of Yeshua and the Torah since the 1970’s. They care for the widows and orphans in the East Godavari District in Andhra Pradesh and have several satellite congregations.
What to pray for: That the government authorities will not inhibit their ability to gather and worship. That they will be able to complete construction for the widows home they are in process of building.
Beth Chesed | Torah4Haiti: This organization is located in Northern Haiti and lead by a Messianic congregation in Rhode Island.
What to pray for: A friend and brother in Messiah Yeshua did an interview with Rabbi Peter Oliveira about the orphanage and how you can support them. You can listen to the podcast here: Interview w/Rabbi Peter Oliveira – Beth Chesed
Zambia Messianic Fellowship | Jerome Fleischer Orphanage: Alex Yalenga and his wife Fay run an orphanage, but they have also established many congregations in Zambia. You can hear the most recent message he gave on his last visit to the US: Alex Yalenga – G-d Through the Eyes of the Convert
