Our Mission and Vision
Our Mission is to serve and empower orphaned children worldwide, by the love of Jesus Christ. We will do that by encouraging, enabling, and teaching them to reach their full potential, giving them knowledge, skills, and confidence to become contributing members of society and leaders of the next generation.
Our vision is to create small communities around the world where orphaned and abandoned children can be raised and educated in a loving family environment. We will have a positive impact, blessing the surrounding communities with our focus on the elderly and those in the most hopeless of situations.
The Lord brought together a group of distinct people from different backgrounds, with different skill sets, but with the same heart. A heart that Christ gave to each one, a heart for the lost and hopeless.
LITTLE LAMBS INTERNATIONAL WAS FOUNDED IN 2008 IN A SMALL TOWN OF NEW HAMPSHIRE.
We have come a long way, learned a lot along that way, and cannot wait to see what the Lord has in store for us, and each one of His little lambs that He puts in our pathway. All glory to God for what has been done and what will be done.
Dream with us!
The first building of the Little Lambs compound was completed in 2016, and is now functioning as a home for children as well as a base for teams of volunteers who have joined the Little Lambs vision.
In the coming years we will be working on phase 2, which will be the community where we will build houses for families, a school, a medical clinic, ball fields, and everything a child needs to grow up in a safe, healthy and loving environment.
Imagine a place where children have warm meals instead of digging in the trash for scraps. Imagine them growing up in a loving family instead of alone on the street. Imagine them getting the education they need to grow into future leaders and role models for the next generation, instead of following generations of hopelessness. Imagine...
Our logo isn’t very self-explanatory, so we would like to help you to understand what it means!
It is made up of three circles, each of which is broken.
The large outer circle represents the world we live in, a broken world.
The middle circle represents the family structure, which has also been broken and distorted throughout the world.
And the smaller inner circle represents individuals and their brokenness, thinking especially in the children we are caring for.
So living in a broken world, which is caused by broken families, which is caused by broken individuals, what hope is there? Well, there IS hope, and His name is Jesus! Our mission at LLI is to heal the broken hearted, the abandoned and abused. To heal the hearts of these little children who have been neglected or dealt difficult circumstances. If we can show them healing in Christ, their small hearts and souls can receive healing… which will then eventually lead them to break the cycle of brokenness that their family has been through and create a whole, healthy family for themselves and their future children…. And through creating healthy individuals, which leads to healthy families, we can bring healing and wholeness to the world, through our only true hope, Jesus Christ!
So in a nutshell, we live in a broken world, because of broken homes, because of broken individuals. We are working hard to bring healing to the individual, to restore the family unit, to bring healing to this broken world. Join with us! The church needs to stand up for the world to receive this hope!
