School in Sierra Leone

January 8, 2016

Have you ever wondered how school works in other countries? During my last trip to Sierra Leone we were able to visit most of the former street boys at their school. This, along with input from our partners there, Becky Brockelman and Charles Yimbo, I feel like I understand enough now to share schooling in Sierra Leone. Our children in Sierra Leone begin in Primary Classes I through VI. When a child’s family has sufficient funds, children begin Class I at…

Meet Shirin

December 2, 2015

From the earliest days of the 25 Project ministry, we have prayed that God would allow us to serve orphan and vulnerable kids in an area of the world considered to be unreached (little or no access to the Gospel). God swung those doors wide open early in 2015, as we were able to begin overseeing ministry to kids in two separate Mercy Homes in South Asia. We were able to step into ministry that was already ongoing and receive…

This word comes to mind…

November 11, 2015

Faithful. That was the word that continued to come to my mind this past weekend. God is faithful, He is always faithful. We’ve seen His faithfulness over and over since the beginning of this ministry. And this past weekend was no exception as He gave us more tangible examples and reminders of His faithfulness to what He has called us to be and do. Part of our team stayed in Texas and helped bring awareness to God’s heart for orphans….

The Power of Touch

November 3, 2015

I just recently returned from visiting our kids in Sierra Leone in October. I wanted to share with you a quick update regarding the time I spent there. Repeatedly in the Bible we see that God was a person of personal relationship. He loved to talk to His people and many times communicated that love through touch. There has been much research done in the power of touch. Jesus certainly held a supernatural power in His touch. In Matthew 8:1-3…

Sending Smiles to Sierra Leone

September 18, 2015

With God’s leading, we were so excited to give our sponsors the chance to provide a personal care package to their sponsored child. We are always thrilled about the way God moves among His people! Within two days of discussing the possibility of providing care packages and finding someone to champion the effort, we received a sweet email by one of our sponsors, Barbara Cross. Her question was about…..you guessed it, care packages! After some prayer by Barbara and the 25 Project, we all decided to…

India Mercy Homes

March 11, 2015

   After months of discussions, prayer, and consideration, we are thrilled to announce that the 25 Project has begun overseeing the operation and ministry of two children’s homes in India. While this was a process that took months to complete, it became clear over time that God had led us to these precious kids.    The two Mercy Homes consist of one home for girls, and one home for boys. There are a total of 54 children currently in the…
