John & Chayli Duerson

May 20, 2023 | Liberal, KS

John and Chayli got married in October of 2019 and felt a calling to adopt early in their relationship. Chayli was called to be an adoptive mom at the early age of 8 after committing her life to Christ. When she and John met they began talking about adopting and John also felt called to adoption. Chayli and John are excited to be bringing a child into their home. John said he is looking forward to providing a forever home for child and Chayli is excited to see how God brings a child into their home, hearts, and arms.

Waiting Child

Orphan | India

The Duersons are in the matching phase of the adoption and due to the confidentiality of the process that is all they are able to share at this time. They are hopeful to bring a child home in December of 2023 or January of 2024.

Ms. Shirley

Widow | Kansas

Shirley is a member of a New Beginnings Church and was introduced to John & Chayli through a mutual friend, Janet. Shirley lost her husband, Billy, in 2021. She has one biological son who is married and has sons and her husband had another son too. Her home needs new carpet as her old carpet is very worn and dangerous as she might fall and hasn't been painted for many, many years. She was so excited that God was calling the Duersons to do this project for her because she is really in need of some help.
