- ONE DAY every orphaned child in Lesotho will have a loving, caring, safe place, that they can call home.
- ONE DAY all the orphans of Lesotho will experience justice, dignity, and security.
- ONE DAY there will be a large network of locally staffed, community based homes providing an environment that prepares children for lives beyond childhood and that provides them with the opportunity to attain their highest potential.
- ONE DAY Lesotho will attain the capacity to provide a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of all its children, including food, clothing, housing, medical care, social services and security.
You might think “that’s a big vision”; we do too! But we’re determined to move with focused intent towards that day, ONE DAY at a time
Chris and Sheila Dillon will move to Lesotho to oversee the establishment of our project.
2. BUILD HOUSES
We will build a series of small family homes for Orphaned Vulnerable Children in Lesotho.
3. BUILD FAMILIES
Each home will house a family unit consisting of 4 to 6 children and local full-time live-in house parents whom we will support in raising the children.
WHO ARE WE?
One Day is a project operated by Liberty Church. You an find out more about Liberty on the church’s website: www.libertychurch.ie , but here’s a quick overview of who we are…
1. WE ARE CHRISTIANS
To be a Christian means to follow Jesus Christ. On the surface that means that our lives should demonstrate the same love, compassion, and generosity that Jesus demonstrated. At a deeper level being Christians means relocating the source of our hope, significance and security in life from the realm of our own self effort and on to Jesus and His work in our lives.
We don’t claim to be the finished product, but we hope we are moving in the right direction!
2. WE ARE A CHURCH
The way we see things, a Church is not a building or an institution. Instead “Church” is the word used for the group of people Jesus has joined together into a family with a common purpose.
We are as much “The Church” when we are in our workplaces, homes and communities as we are when we get together for services. This thing isn’t just for Sundays! We are connected and committed to being there for each other through all of life, helping each other discover and live out our God-given purposes.
