The Goddard's E. Europe Orphan Fund

Dear Family & Friends,

We have the opportunity this Christmas to host 2 children from the Ukraine. They will be staying with us for 4-5 weeks. They are a brother and sister, ages 11 and 9, who live in a private orphanage and have been there most of their lives. We are working with an organization called Force for Christ. It provides children from orphanages in the Ukraine with a once in a lifetime adventure, the chance to just be a kid in a safe environment, and the opportunity to experience the love of family, and more importantly the love of Jesus. We are so excited to love on these sweet kiddos!

We have the space in our home, and our hearts, but need help raising the immediate funds to pay for their flight, visas and other international fees. If you would be willing to share in our adventure, we have set up a GoFundMe page. Force for Christ is a nonprofit organization so donations are tax deductible . The cost per child is $2350. Any additional money we raise will go towards a scholarship for other families.

We would appreciate your prayers for these children and our family. They are also in need of clothes (especially girl clothes since we clearly know nothing about girls, and shopping in the girl section at Children’s Place makes me hyperventilate). In addition, if anyone has extra twin mattresses they would be willing to let us borrow, please let us know.

We wouldn't be able to do this without your love and support. Thank you!!

The Goddards
