Welcome to the OCAkids weekly newsletter, published by the ministries of Orphan Care Alliance! 
No matter where you live in Kentucky or southern Indiana there is something for you in APRIL! You will often hear OCA staff say, “Orphan care is more than just adopting and fostering. There is a place for everyone to serve in the ministry of orphan care!” Here are some opportunities for you to jump in!
This month, in Lexington, OCA will be hosting a simulcast of the Empowered to Connect Conference on April 8,9. This conference is for everyone who wants to dive deeper into learning how to care for kids from hard places! You are NOT alone in your missional pursuit to care for vulnerable children.

The Empowered To Connect Conference is a two-day conference designed to help adoptive and foster parents, ministry leaders and professionals better understand how to connect with “children from hard places” in order to help them heal and become all that God desires for them to be.The conference features Dr. Karyn Purvis and is ideal for adoptive and foster parents, those considering adoption or foster care and those who are serving and supporting others, including social workers, agency professionals, church staff and ministry leaders, counselors, therapists and others.
