Colleyville, TX

“I think we should prayerfully consider adopting from China!” I spoke those words to Jacob in the fall of 2016 and to my amazement he said OK. Jacob and I began praying about this decision and asking the Lord to lead us in this process. Our girls have prayed for their new sister almost every night and talk about her all the time. Jacob and I remain confident, even through the delays, mountains of paperwork, financial expenses, and moments of fear that God does not call the equipped but EQUIPS THOSE HE CALLS.

Chloe

Orphan China

We started the process in early January 2018 and sent everything to China in June.. We saw the sweet face of Chloe shortly after. We’ve been anxiously awaiting her file to be completed ever since. It’s been a long wait but we know the Lord is purposeful and always in control. We are hopeful to receive final approval within the next month and would likely travel in February.

Ms. Doris

Widow Fort Worth, TX

The loss of a beloved spouse often makes it difficult for a widow to keep up with the needed repairs and improvements to her home. We are excited to bless a widow in our community in a big way!

Our Both Hands Project

Project October 27, 2018

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?

Help bring Chloe home!
