Global Orphan Relief (GO!) was established in July of 2005 out of obedience to what God would have the Nordstrom family do, not based on any previous ministry experience, nor on any desire ‘to do something good’, but simply following when He prompted the family to GO!.
On May 4th, 2005, the Nordstrom family was blessed with the birth of Faith Anastasia Nordstrom, but for some unknown reason, they were only blessed with Faith’s natural presence for 14 days. Faith was faced with a myriad of medical issues during her short little life, but what she did for family, friends, and even for people outside the Nordstrom family’s sphere of influence was incredible. In fact, her gift to us was nothing short of supernatural. Faith reminded us that “above all else love”. It was through this experience that Global Orphan Relief was born.
Global Orphan Relief (GO!) was established to somehow serve the needs of orphans; where they are now, assisting them as they may unite with adopting families, and building awareness about their need. GO!’s first mission to serve Orphans was the Nordstrom family venturing forth to serve orphans in Juarez, Mexico, during Christmas 2005.
