Ted & Kristi Patrick

Ted & Kristi Patrick

Zeeland, MI

Ted and Kristi have been married for 15 years and have 2 biological children. God originally placed adoption on Kristi’s heart back in college, but felt a strong calling to adopt a couple years ago. In April 2016, after much prayer, Ted felt the calling as well and we took a step of faith and moved forward with the process. We are adopting a sibling group from Colombia and are so excited to bring them home!

Sibling Group

Orphans Colombia

We are working through Adoption by Shepherd Care to adopt a sibling group from Colombia. We are currently first on the waiting list and are anxiously awaiting a referral. We can’t wait to meet them and pray for them daily.

Mr. Al

Widower Zeeland, MI

Al Trapp is the widower our team will be serving. He lost his wife in December of 2009. We go to church with Al and he has such a big heart for the children in our church. His servant's heart has been such a blessing to us and we hope that we can bless him through the work we do at his house.

Our Both Hands Project

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 orphaned siblings to become adopted into a forever family. Will you sponsor us?
