Over 14 years ago, we were blessed in developing a partnership with ICM in Hampton, Virginia. ICM builds churches all over the world. We have partnered with them to build churches in Cuba, India, Liberia and Uganda. The ICM model is to build a church in villages where there is no other evangelical church and make a covenant agreement with them that they will evangelize and start five new churches in the villages near them within a three year period.
We provide motor scooters for the missionaries and pastors to travel to these villages. It is exciting to see the church growth as a result of new buildings where they can worship and declare the gospel and for the church to be used for public meetings, food distribution, and clean water.
With the orphan population growing in epidemic proportions, there is an immediate need for orphan care around the world. Moving away from traditional and institutional orphanages, Voices offers a fresh and dynamic approach to confront the orphan problem where Open Bible Churches serve. Each home is an extension of the pastor's family with an atmosphere based on love and compassion that is taught in the word of God. Every home shares a building with the local OBC Church. The children live on the top level with the pastor and His family. The ground level is where the church and community meet. Each home has the capacity to house 20 children.
We believe loving and taking care of orphans is a true testimony of the love of Christ. This unique church/home combination provides an effective means to meeting both the spiritual and physical needs of each child as well as addressing the felt needs of the community.
