Jochebed's Hope is a new ministry at Lakewood Baptist Church in Gainesville. Being an adoptive family, this is a ministry that we are very passionate about, and know is doing great work with foster and adopting families.
Their mission is to:
• Encourage the community of believers in Christ to embrace adoption, orphan care and foster care, and to offer ministry and support to families and children.
• Promote the Biblical foundation for adoption.
• Call upon individuals to share in the God given responsibility of orphan and foster care and to provide support to care for children in need.
If you are an adoptive or foster family, or are thinking about becoming one, this is a great ministry to get involved with.

Ekklesia International Tanzania (Tanzania, East Africa)
Ekklesia International Tanzania is building relationships with the people, sharing Christ's love in word and deed, and supporting and creating projects that will promote sustainable improvements to their ways of living. They believe that through these relationships they can help lead people to Christ.
EIT, through their Beloved Projects, is working toward establishing a place of safety and refuge for victims of trafficking desperate for a way out. The Beloved Project offers precisely that which seems out of reach for women in this industry: a new beginning and a place to call home. The House of Victory is a house of hope. By providing food, water, shelter, clothing, medical care and job training, The Beloved Project will offer these women the basic necessities of a “normal life” that we so often take for granted, while reminding them of their dignity as persons.
