An Orphan’s Prayer is a non-profit organization that is centered around Christian ministry and evangelizing the word of God. We believe in the Holy Bible and that scriptures are the guidance for our personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We seek to spread the gospel and share Jesus’ love with the world. The key component of this ministry is to allow God’s love to shine through to those that may be in darkness or without hope. Our goal is to bring hope to a future generation – to the children, the orphan and the abandoned.
AOP has based it’s foundation on their mission of faith and sanction with the Savior; however, all are welcome who do not have a personal relationship with Jesus. If you would like to be involved – to give, engage and volunteer – we look forward to meeting you. Your time and care will help restore a child’s life forever.
During a mission trip to Haiti in July 2010, Chris and Kelli Wilson visited an Haitian orphanage and learned that 15 percent of Haitian children are orphans. Inspired by what they learned, Yorkville residents Chris and Kelli Wilson announced the launch of An Orphan’s Prayer (AOP), a non-profit organization that aims to provide orphan care for impoverished, parentless children in Haiti and other areas worldwide.
An Orphan’s Prayer has also aligned with various field partners, missioniaries and missions including-The Global Orphan Project (TGOP), 1013 Missions, and other missions. AOP helps provide safe, secure facilities for orphaned children in Haiti. An Orphan’s Prayer Foundation (AOP) brings hope to a future generation. AOP restores a child’s life by providing stablility and teaching sustainablity through various AG funding programs. An Orphan’s Prayer is currently sustaining 63 orphans in the La Hatte orphanage, in Haiti. An Orphan’s Prayer is providing orphan care in Uganda, Haiti, and Mongolia. An Orphan’s Prayer helps fund surgical procedures for orphans in need of medical care around the world. Outside of An Orphan’s Prayer’s own orphanages, AOP also provides for clothing, medical, nutrition, materials for Christian education worldwide, cloth diapers and formula (AOP partners with Country Buns, they generously donated baby supplies.). AOP also partners with the 4H Club of IL, to work with the future generation of orphan children in third world countries. 4H is helping us education orphans on how to sustain livestock to produce nutritional food for their villages/orphanage and communities. AOP’s biggest long term goal is to continue to sustain orphanages and maintain a Christ-like environment for impoverished children.
