Aug. 26- Sept. 6, 2020 Mission to South Africa
We are now accepting applications for our August 26- September 6, 2020 mission trip to serve orphans and at-risk children in South Africa.
Details of this trip are still being created. However, the Vision of the ministry we will be helping is clear.
Our vision for children in this community does not just stop at the establishment of orphan homes. We believe that the Bible is clear that God expects us to take care of the poor, needy, widows and the strangers in our land. (Isaiah 58.)Through the All In Orphan Care Bible Study we hope to help families and individuals establish how they will walk out the mandate to help orphans. Our vision is to see other families fostering and adopting the abandoned of South Africa. Also to provide support to those families through support groups and educational classes. Our vision is to see programs put in place to help children to stay in their families through parenting and support type programs. Helping families stay in tact prior to governmental interventions is our goal.

Tim & Theresa have 2 children (Jared & Brittany) who both have traveled with ACF to Romania number of times. Tim has lead nearly 30 mission teams around the world over the years.
