Scott & Ashley Bess

April 3, 2021 | Biloxi, MS

Scott and Ashley have been married for nine years. Scott is a Children’s Pastor at FBC Biloxi and Ashley is a teacher. They met serving on the mission field through their colleges and were both placed on the same team serving in children’s ministry. Adoption is the perfect representation of Christ’s love for His people. We are adopted into the family of God and want to lead by example and grow our family through adoption.

A Waiting Child

Orphan | United States

We have been trying to grow our family for close to 7 years. We have been praying and waiting and adoption was always on the list but one of us would not be ready to go down that road when the other would be. In 2018 God’s timing is always perfect and led both of hearts to start the journey of adoption to start our family.

Widow | Biloxi, MS

Ms. Virginia has been a part of our church family for over 10 years. Since serving at FBC Biloxi we have had the pleasure of getting to know Ms. Virginia. She has a love for singing in the Choir and serving others. These past couple of years, especially during covid have brought some hardships with Ms. Virginia’s health and we are so excited to be able to serve her as a church family!
