In Deuteronomy 10:18, we read, “[The Lord your God] executes justice for the fatherless and the widow, and loves the sojourner, giving him food and clothing.” We find many reminders in the Bible to care for the needy (often referred to as the widow and orphan). We also discover that during His early ministry, Jesus did all He could to minister to those overlooked by society. However, what is the Adventist Church doing in this regard? In this blog, we will examine how one Division—the West-Central Africa Division (WAD)—feels about Christ’s method of ministry and what they do when the “rubber meets the road.”
