Let us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely and the unwanted according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or slow to do the humble work.

Mother Teresa

As many of you know one of my greatest desires is to follow Gods call to the orphans of China. I am happy to announce God has opened doors for me to join a medical team going to Beijing, China.
I will be one of twenty people going on this life changing mission. Embrace Missions is sending our group of medical professionals to New Day Foster Care Home to train caregivers from several orphanages around Beijing. Teaching through workshops, presentations and medical demonstrations, the training will cover proper physical therapy techniques and treatments. Team members will also deliver physical therapy equipment to improve care giver's ability to meet the special needs of these children and ensure proper recovery at New Day's Healing Home. The Embrace Missions team will also visit several children living in both New Day Foster Care Homes and Grace Minority Orphanage.

A child born with special needs in China often faces a bleak future. These children are often abandoned by their parents. The mission of the New Day Foster Care Home is to provide life-saving surgeries and a loving home to orphans with special needs. At a twenty-one bed facility outside Beijing, special needs orphans from around China arrive for surgery and medical care, as well as emotional and spiritual restoration. .

How do I eat an elephant? One bite at a time. How do I raise support? One dollar at a time. Fundraising has a rotten reputation of being a necessary evil when the truth is that it is a very vital part of missions ministry. There are great multitudes of people that want to reach out to the lost but are not able to go. So those of us that are called must be the hands and feet. God already knows who will
provide the funds. He has called them to their place just as He has called me. I understand not everyone can provide monetary assistance. Prayers and encouragement are also needed. If you have felt the tug on your heart and would like to give there is a list that is provided on the next page.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read and consider donating. If you have any questions please feel free to write or call me.


Many Thanks and Blessings,
Melissa Carroll
