What we believe we are called to do
The Horses for Orphans (H4O) vision is for orphans, the fatherless, and the vastly emotionally and materially underprivileged, to personally encounter the love of God and come into a living relationship with God the Father, Jesus and the Holy Spirit, through the vehicle of natural horsemanship.
The vision becomes reality as H4O goes into children’s homes / orphanages, where orphans and children-at-risk live without their parents. By bringing horses, and using natural horsemanship as an analogy, we teach about the human heart and the heart of God.
The horse serves as a palpable illustration, not only of the condition of the human heart, but the relationship that can be formed with horses, and how that relationship reflects the relationship we are meant to have with God.
Our mandate is to empower the children we work with, to gain a deeper understanding of their own hearts, and their relationship with God.
Spiritual principles are clearly explained and illustrated through the practical art of natural horsemanship. By observing horse behaviour and by interacting with horses, the children discover key parallels to their own behaviour, and their interaction with others.
Through insight gained concerning the state of their own hearts, they recognize the issues that have kept them from a deeper relationship with other people, God the Father, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.
Horses for Orphans provides secondary support to ministries, businesses, and leaders in many fields who carry a mandate to help others reach emotional and spiritual wholeness.
We, at Horses for Orphans (H4O), believe that to help the poor reject a poverty mindset and leave the lifestyle behind, it is not enough to just give them skills, as where there is no vision the people perish. (Proverbs 29:18). We must help them find the dreams and passion God has placed in their hearts, and then help them pursue their vision to live in the fullness of their destiny.
Each child has a different dream and once they catch their vision, they become unstoppable.
