The Vision?

It’s Jesus. The vision of The Lulu Tree is Jesus. It’s bringing His comfort to those who’ve been abandoned by the world. It’s breathing His life over a discouraged pastor or mother. It’s letting the little children come to Him. It’s reconciling the poorest of the poor back to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

He is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ. ~ Colossians 1:28

How do we do this?

Through Salvation, and Sustainability.

Salvation

Our primary focus is the salvation of souls. And how are souls saved? Through witnessing Jesus’ kingdom come to earth. We seek to equip pastors in the remotest of villages with the fullness of the gospel so they, in turn, can bring the kingdom of God to the single mothers, discouraged fathers, and abandoned children in their communities.

Sustainability

Our secondary focus is sustainability. We do not want to foster dependency, for dependency is neither loving nor wise. We want to set up our brothers to be successful long after we have gone. So we work with the National Directors (who are also pastors) in each country to develop a sustainable plan, so that, prayerfully, within 5 years they will be self-sufficient and able to care for their own.

The mission God has given us is to prevent tomorrow’s orphans by equipping today’s families through the local church. When the church becomes the cornerstone of a community, the downward spiral of poverty is upended as families work together to develop healthy, sustainable villages rooted in the love of Christ – and disciples are made in all nations.

CHURCH

First and foremost, we seek to partner with pastors who are already trying to help their communities. We help them first to care for their own families through building up their small businesses, and then to build up their church families through providing church-planting, pastoral training, and education for children’s ministers and prayer warriors, helping the local church to become the cornerstone of each village.

VILLAGE

Once the church is healthy and strong, it can then reach out and assist the local village through initiatives such as sustainable farming, maternal healthcare centers and FGM rescue, and gospel outreaches, amongst others.

FAMILY

In reaching the village, churches also equip individual families through micro loans programs and education for parents.

CHILD

Finally, as a result of equipping the church to care for the village to care for the family, the most vulnerable are protected. Communities are able to care for their own orphans and elderly, in the name of Christ.

Mission Statement

Preventing tomorrow’s orphans by equipping today’s families through the local church.

The Goal?

To become one family in Christ.

“His intent was that now, through the church, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms…”

~ Ephesians 3:10
