I will be traveling to China on behalf of the Zhanjiang Kids Organization which works with orphaned children inZhanjiang, and we will also be visiting an orphanage in Fuzhou. While there I will be providing teacher training and mentoring to the in country staff who work with these children on a daily basis. I will also be teaching life lessons to teen orphans raised their entire lives in the orphanage. Our focus will be developing life skills skills such as health and hygiene, marriage, job skills, raising children, identity, and social skills will be touched on.
You see, these orphans, are considered a non essential responsibility of their governmental system. So the responsibility of educating these children falls on the shoulders of non profits such as Zhanjiang Kids. We will also be instilling biblical principles and prayer into these young lives. The grim reality is these kids do not have a family or education to fall back on and we want to provide the essential backbone of Jesus which provides hope in their otherwise hopeless future.
I will be in China for 16 days which will certainly be the longest stretch away from my family. My travel dates will be from 8/28-9/12. I am seeking prayer support for me and my team along with Amy and Gideon, as well as financial support for my trip. This may also be the first step for us as a family in adopting a child of our own down the road. If you would like to support me you can do so through https://www.zhanjiangkids.org/give/ which is tax deductible. Be sure to write in the memo that it's for Simon Mills.
Job 29:12 ESV
Because I delivered the poor who cried for help, and the fatherless who had none to help him.
