Our Amazing Journey

Our family has been totally grabbed by God. We have been praying every day for over a year for the millions of orphans in Africa.   After watching a video of some of the orphaned children in Uganda, God convicted us that it is now time for us to take action.

We believe that He is calling our family to not only raise awareness in America, but also to serve in Africa, to be His loving arms to the fatherless, to bring His hope to the helpless.  We are stepping out in faith trusting that God will shed light on each “next step” we need to take as He leads us to His children…….Our children.  Yes, they are our children, just as much as the four biological children with which God has blessed us.  God has opened our eyes to an unimaginable reality...13 million orphans in Africa alone..., and we are now responsible to respond.  We cannot, we will not sit by any longer and allow these children to die without hope, without knowing the love of Christ and feeling Him holding on to them.
We have been placed in our exact situation with so many blessings so that we can bless others.  We were made for His glory, not for our comfort.  We solicit your prayers and support as we begin an amazing journey straight to the heart of God.  We do not know exactly where this journey will take us, but we trust that God is hemming us in behind and before.

"The difference between compassion and justice is this:  compassion pulls the drowning out of the river, justice goes up stream and finds out who is throwing people in the river."  David Crowder

We are headed upstream.

  1. I hope that our paths cross on our journeys that are leading us from the same place to the same place. I will be praying for you.

  2. How exciting! We can't wait to see God use your family. We have seen first hand move the mountains. We felt called to Etihopia to adopt and when we looked into it were told our family size wastoo big. But God still pressed it on us and as we kept praying as a family about it God moved those mountains and an agency contacted us... it just continues to give us more to testify about. We are so thrilled for you guys and will pray fervently for your family. Much love
