Do you feel called to do more to care for orphans
but aren’t sure what that looks like?

Would you like to get an up-close and personal look
at the work being done at the
Show Hope Special Care Centers in China?


Go And See

  • See the work, and care for orphans with special needs in China that you are personally impacting each month through your sponsorship.
  • See and further examine God’s heart for the orphan while you learn more about orphan care through daily team training and devotions.
  • See how God is calling you to further care for orphans and what His vision for orphan care is in your life.


Together We Will

  • We will spend the majority of our time at the Show Hope Special Care Center, Maria’s Big House of Hope, a six-story care medical care center for orphans with special needs located in Luoyang, China.
  • Activities will include coming alongside the nannies to play and interact with the children and small work projects as needed at Maria’s Big House of Hope. We will also spend time together as a team daily, growing in our understanding of our calling to care for the fatherless.
  • In addition, we will visit various tourist sites such as the Great Wall, Tiananmen Square, and Olympic Village in Beijing, explore the local market, go shopping at the Pearl Market, learn more about Chinese culture and enjoy authentic Chinese cuisine.
