ROOF is now recruiting volunteers for the Belskoye-Ustye 2013 Summer Camp! We are now looking for volunteers interested in spending a few weeks in the Pskov Region of Western Russia working with the children of Belskoye-Ustye Psycho-Neurological Orphanage during the month of July 2013.
Want to impact the life of an orphan or economically depressed child? Are you a believer that Jesus wants ALL people to be saved and come to the knowledge of His saving blood? We have 125 children at the local orphanage waiting for YOU! We hope that you will consider traveling to Ukraine to minister to these and the hundreds of children His Kids Too! serves throughout the Donetsk region.

Core Module 1: Trauma and Crisis Care presents foundational issues and principles that provide an understanding of children’s traumatic experiences and the resulting impact of trauma. Additionally, it addresses planning and implementation of biblical interventions in order to bring healing and hope to hurting children.
Our conferences provide 30+ sessions on race and identity, family relationships, parenting tools, search and reunion, etc. Presenters include authors, educators, activists, therapists, and grassroots leaders. Each block includes an adoptee-only session as well as many choices open to all. Cultural and social activities are offered as well as vendors, exhibits, and film screenings.
Train the Trainer is designed to equip individuals who have taken Module 1: Trauma and Crisis Care and desire to teach the CCTI curriculum modules to caregivers and communities to bring healing and hope to children and families in crisis.

The Konotop Trip has been such a special trip for us here at Mercy Projects. For the past few years MP UK has been sending teams to work with special needs children at the “Hearts of Love” center in Konotop, Ukraine. We have seen drastic changes in the children as well as the quality of the center’s building as Mercy Projects teams and supports worldwide have given time and finances to invest in these often overlooked children. Join the team whether you are from the U.S. or the UK and help put on an awesome program for these kids. No visas needed.

Hope at Home – 2013 will be a time of refreshing as we encounter the Father’s heart towards adoptive families. It is going beyond a traditional conference to equip and restore parents
