|Our Mission "To grow Christian men and women with integrity and godly character who will stand as beacons of light in the remotest parts of the world."
Why We're Here:
Gethsemane International exists to rescue orphans from poverty and create godly homes for them. All children need a loving mother and father to teach them the truth of Jesus Christ. Our philosophy is based on the Biblical model of family. We follow God's blueprint for raising godly adults.
We are committed to the gospel of Jesus Christ. It is the only message of love and truth that is able to provide lasting hope to children who were once orphans without hope.
Gethsemane International is not an orphanage or an institution. We create homes.
Our homes provide a set of godly home parents and a number of siblings. The children learn about love, responsibility, kindness, confidence, and acceptance by being a part of a real family structure.
Large relief organizations spend millions of dollars to feed orphans one meal or give them a pair of shoes, but the next day the children are still living in poverty.
Gethsemane provides a permanet solution to the plight of poverty. We invest holistically into our children's care by providing education, teaching practical life-skills, and nurturing both emotional and physical health.
We recognize that nothing is more permanent or eternal than the love of Jesus Christ for the children who were without hope.
For the first time, the children we rescue have the opportunity to excel in their education and become the future leaders of their communities.
We also provide opportunities for our partners to be the hands and feet of Christ. Through our programs, anyone can help transform the life of an orphan either internationally or in their local community. We have opportunities for sponsors, summer interns, and mission teams to connect with the children individually, correspond with them and develop an on-going relationship with them.
