John Piper at Summit VI

Recently 5 of us from the ministry of Open Hearts, Open Homes attended Christian Alliance for Orphans Summit VI conference. It was two days of great encouragement and challenge on caring for the orphan. What a blessing to be with many brothers and sisters in Christ that share our passion for the orphan!

The last speaker of the conference was John Piper. The following is the video of his talk for your listening pleasure. If you are currently serving orphans in any capacity, or have a heart for serving orphans you will find this to be of great interest.
