The Privilege of Sponsorship

May 4, 2017

I became a sponsor after going on a mission expedition to the Mercy Home Ministry in South Asia.

The children were not names and pictures, but kids that seemed very much like us, although in wildly more difficult circumstances. I felt burdened to help these kids who seemed so hopeful and spiritually hungry. They were enduring difficult situations and facing spiritual…

This is truly one of the most difficult travel (literally half way around the world) yet joyful trips I have the privilege to be a part of. As I reviewed the pictures of the children just today for a church presentation, the most overwhelming view you get is the love in their hearts reflected…

Sunita’s Prayer

December 30, 2016

Just a few weeks ago, we received prayer requests from some of our kids living in South Asia, Dominican Republic, and Sierra Leone. There were several that caught our attention, but one prayer request in particular still strikes me even now! It is a prayer from Sunita in South Asia, one of our girls whose parents abandoned her years ago… “I pray for my family. Although they claim to be Christians, they really don’t have a personal relationship with God.”…
