On Sunday night, May 1st at 5:00pm, The NO MORE Foundation in partnership with Faith Coalition for Families, Global Impact, and Restoration Rome, are putting on a community-wide event – The NOMORE ORPHANS Experience. It is estimated that there are 143 million orphans in the world today, close to 500,000 children in the US Foster Care System and over 400 children in Floyd County in need of support. Although the statistics may be staggering, the reality is that every number has a face, every face has a name, and every name has a story.
This event is unique and the first of it’s kind in Georgia. With local bands, personal stories, experts in the field, an artist, and a spoken word poet, NO MORE looks to give people a window from which they can see, hear, experience and understand both the heart of God and the heart of the orphan. “Our goal is to put as many faces to the need as possible, and to provide as many opportunities as possible for people to connect to what is needed and respond to that need with action. We want every person who comes to the event, whether they are in college, retired, or any stage of life in between, to see how they can personally make a difference in the life of a child,” says Tami Kent, Co-Founder of NO MORE. For that reason, The No More Foundation has partners with local and international organizations, so that people can make a personal connection and get signed up to serve where their heart compels them. Over the past 4 years The No More Foundation has worked with churches and organizations all over the country to bring an event to communities just like this one, and they are excited to see people in Floyd County engage in this important cause.
Jaime Kent and his wife Tami, who have been serving in ministry for close to 25 years, spending 10 of those years in full-time ministry as Pastors, launched The NO MORE Foundation in 2011 because they believe God has called them to bridge the gap between the person sitting in church on Sunday morning wondering how God might use them and those in cities around the US and beyond who desperately need to know and experience the tangible love of God. Here’s what Jaime Kent had this to say about this event and their ministry, “Caring for the down and out and the less fortunate was not an idea hatched by the government or even a group of well intentioned people who saw a need. The truth is that caring for the hurting and hopeless – that’s on God’s heart. In Matthew 25:35 Jesus said ‘as you do unto the least of these brothers and sisters of Mine, you do it as unto Me.’ We are all called to care, to love as Jesus loved, to be His hands and feet to a lost and hopeless world and if we can bring it all back to one – one child, one person, one life at a time – our impact on this earth can reach far beyond what we can even imagine and that is something to get excited about!” The No More Foundation exists to educate, mobilize, and empower the church to ‘care for the least of these’ through events such as these, bringing them out on the other side with one anthem: ‘NO MORE! This can’t and won’t happen anymore on our watch!’
