hope and life for
the
orphan

We believe that every little detail matters to God, that He desires to be intimately involved in the seemingly insignificant, and that He will provide guidance, creativity, and wisdom when we bring all things before Him. And so, we have taken this “name creating” process very seriously. We spent days meditating on the truths of Scripture, searching for themes of rescue, hope, and restoration. As we dug deep into the father heart of God, we found that He gave the inspiration, creativity and guidance that we were looking for. He led us to a name which, from the latin, literally translates to mean, refuge for life. We were immediately struck by this simple latin phrase. Not only does Jesus see the needs of these vulnerable children, but He actively champions their cause, standing as a strong tower of refuge and safety, hope and life. And because we are after the Father heart of God, we found that this was our desire as well: to offer hope in a hopeless occasion, to be a refuge in a world of darkness, and to bring them to life through the soul redemption of Jesus Christ.

life the mission of arae vitae

Arae Vitae is given to the rescue of orphaned and vulnerable children worldwide. While Arae Vitae will passionately seek to meet each child’s physical needs through the provision of shelter, food, clothing, education, and general life training, Arae Vita’s primary concern is for the hearts and souls of these precious lives. To provide hope and life for the orphan, dwell in the triumph that only comes through the soul-rescue of Jesus Christ, and bring utmost glory to Him is what Arae Vitae is all about.

it
all
started:

kyle statham executive
director

It all started in about 4th grade. I was living in Belgium and the church I attended would make annual trips to an orphanage in rural France. It was during this period of my life that I felt God’s explicit call to defend the weak and the fatherless.

verse(s): Psalm 46:1, Proverbs 16:9

 the beginning days

stand with us for
the
orphan

As a grassroots effort, we are finding these beginning days especially beautiful. The beginning phases of any organization are often tedious and tiring, but we are learning to cherish these days of deep dependence, wrestling prayer, and quiet expectation. While we are eager for the days ahead, we are equally thrilled about everything that is transpiring now, in this beginning phase of Arae Vitae. We don’t want to miss out on anything that our Jesus intends for these beginning days, so we are keeping our ears attentive and our eyes open, working diligently with joy and praying with unreserved passion. We also want to make sure that we are building a foundation that is worthy of Him. And so, we are taking special care that we walk through this first phase with precision and wisdom. Here is a quick overview of Phase One:

We are currently establishing a staff and looking for volunteers who will aid us in the work of Arae Vitae. Marketing and Promotion. We are in the process of producing promotional materials, establishing a communication network, and (soon coming!) lauching a website. Connect. We are building and cultivating relationships with individuals and churches who are passionate about reaching the orphaned and vulnerable children worldwide and who will serve as active participants in this grand rescue plan. We would ask that you stand alongside of us in prayer and join us as we embark upon this grand adventure into the fatherly heart of God. He is perfectly faithful!
