At a very young age God gave Karissa Washburn (Co-Founder) a heart for His children, the forgotten orphans of the world. It became a burning passion to dedicate her life to finding, rescuing, and helping to transform their lives. Humble beginnings, incredible obstacles, and persistent opposition was intended to stop the mission and kill the vision. However, it’s an unshakable faith that has stood firm in the face of opposition to live an example that trust and faith in God can and will move mountains, especially in the pursuit to rescue His forgotten children.
Our presentation and story isn’t like your typical “mission Sunday” presentation. Karissa and the Bless An Orphan team share real, hard-core, life inspiring stories of what the mission is really like, including all the real life stuff that most don’t dare to share and the majority don’t know, incredible miracles, the plight of millions of desperate children are facing world-wide, and our strategy to truly make a lasting impact that changes lives.
Our team presents the stories in a way that listeners won’t easily forget. They will hear, see and experience a presentation that will feel like they are there, on the mission field, facing the giants with us. Listeners will be inspired and challenged in their faith and driven to be, do, and trust God more in their walk. It’s more than just a mission story, it’s a message that ignites people of all ages to live their lives with intention, direction, and passion.
In addition, we also are able to lead your group or congregation in Worship through the music ministry of our International Project Manager, Priscilla Fiskeaux in a Saturday night Worship Experience or Sunday Morning presentation.
