Orphans Embrace/Louisiana Baptist Children’s Home and Family Ministries (LBCHFM) Missions philosophy is to provide opportunities for everyone to be involved in serving others in Jesus’ name. We also realize that everyone is at different places in their walk with the Lord. On a mission trip it is very important to us that we give a good testimony of the grace of God in our lives. While we realize that no one is perfect, there are certain behaviors that should be observed in order to “glorify our Father in heaven”. Other cultures see things differently and our heartfelt desire is that we not become a stumbling block to others.
Therefore we kindly request that all people participating in an Orphans Embrace/LBCHFM missions trip, activity or event enter a covenant with us regarding certain behaviors during the trip, event or activity.
Please review the following guidelines and if you are in agreement to observe these guidelines, please sign in the space provided below.
