We married in 2006 and gave birth to a son in 2011 and a daughter in 2014.  Shortly afterwards, the Lord started convicting us that part of following Jesus is caring for widows and orphans.  Since that time, we’ve added three wonderful children from China.  And we are excited to bring another orphan home this year!

Orphan | Lithuania

The Lord has lead us to adopt a beautiful special needs baby from Lithuania. We have been matched, and we look forward to taking the final steps to bring her home! We expect travel expenses to be about $12,000.

Widow | Missouri

Ms. Roene has been a family friend for several years. We met her through Emily’s parents’ church. We have already been serving her on occasion- weeding her flowerbeds and doing light yard work. We look forward to helping her with a much bigger project!

A Different Kind of Fundraiser

A team of volunteers is completing a service project of fixing up a widow's home. We are raising sponsorship for our day of service. The funds raised will help an orphan to become adopted into a forever family. Will you sponsor us?
