How much do I have to do? How much will it cost?
Adoptive activities need not take up a great deal of time, energy, or finances. Students are typically very busy with school and activities, and work may not allow a lot of free time either. Knowing that they have a loving family to access is a ministry in itself.
Connection is key. Keeping in contact with the student and doing something with them every once in a while still lets them know that someone loves them and they are a vital part of our church and community.
You may feel that you are lacking in resources, but this is not a problem. To them, just hanging out with a family is ministry enough. Maybe have them over for supper with the family or do their laundry. These are good low-cost activities.
