Donations Needed

We have been very thankful for the teaching of Tom Davis, he truly opened our eyes to the heart of Jesus and how God commands us to care for orphans. We had the great privilege of hearing Tom speak a couple of weeks ago. We also got to meet him and chat a bit about his work in Ethiopia with Children's HopeChest. Tom and Children's HopeChest have opened our eyes to something much larger than an adoption of one child.

The Mission:

Children’s HopeChest believes that every orphan has the right to know God, experience the blessing of family, and have the opportunity to develop independent living skills.

Now they need our help, lets show them what we can do and how we are COMMITTED to helping the orphans and widows of the world.

We got it!!

We were presented with our referral on Thursday. We are still processing it all, we did not think it would happen this soon!

We can not say much about the baby, only that he is a boy, about 4 months old, and is HEALTHY!

Praise the LORD!!!

Thank you so much to everyone who has been praying for us. :) We still have a ways to go before he is home, so keep them coming.
