Let All That You Do Be Done In Love

January 24, 2017

Thinking back on our trip to minister in the Mercy Home in South Asia, two words overwhelm my thinking. Those two words are love and blessings! 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.

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.”…

Que Aperidá

May 26, 2016

Que aperidá is a saying used in the Dominican Republic to indicate that something is amazing. What God is doing in the Dominican Republic is amazing! We are so pleased to announce that after many months of prayer and seeking God’s guidance, He has led us to begin a formal partnership in the Dominican Republic.

Lives Changed, Names Changed!

May 3, 2016

Spontaneous songs of worship sang by our former street boys and local leaders to our King are what resonated in the air surrounding the areas of Kent Beach in Sierra Leone on Sunday 2016. As Christians around the world celebrated Palm Sunday, commemorating Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem, we found ourselves with much to celebrate. Because Jesus entered Jerusalem to hang on a tree for all, 12 kids and 2 leaders made decisions to accept Christ’s sacrifice and seal themselves…
