Orphan Soul Raises Their Voice to Support Orphan Sponsorship

With a melodic sound and the deep alto voice of Mandy Flurry, the band members of Christian rock’s Orphan Soul reach out with a message every Sunday at their home church. On November 17, they will also carry the message of Children’s Hope orphan sponsorship program.

“Each of our bandmate’s has an adopted child in their families,” says Mandy. In the state of Mississippi, an adopted child has more rights than a biological child to their families’ inheritance. “It’s an amazing thing then to think, that as Christians, we are all adopted into God’s family. When Jesus died we became joint heirs of God’s inheritance.”

Thus, the name Orphan Soul was christened. On a typical Sunday, the husband and wife team Mandy and Greg Flurry (drums), and Scott Ankerson (guitar) and Mike Arthur (low end guitar) are part of a worship team for Church on the Rock in Pascagoula, Mississippi. On the side they perform as Orphan Soul as an outreach ministry mostly to the Southeastern states for youth-oriented events.

"We rock out," Mandy says.

They also just want to help. As godparents to Ben and Wendi Wood’s children, adopted from Colombia this year through Children’s Hope, the Flurry’s hope to spread the word of orphan sponsorship through Orphan Soul.
