Little Boy

Orphan Colombia

The Lord has really moved in our lives, as adoption was not something we ever thought we desired to pursue! After being led to look into a summer hosting program for Colombian orphans our family took the leap of faith and hosted a 12 year old little boy from Colombia for 5 weeks over the summer. We had a great summer with him and even had the chance to celebrate his 13th birthday with him! After spending the summer with him and much prayer we knew the Lord meant for him to be ours!!

Mrs. Louise

Widow China Grove, NC

We will be serving Mrs. Louise Whitley, who is our long time neighbor! Her husband and son within 5 days of each other and her daughter passed the following year. We do small things for her when we can but we are all very excited to be able to serve her in a BIG way! We are excited to get her yard back up to the eye appealing way they kept it as a couple, as well as pressure wash the house and sidewalk, clean the gutter, fix some fencing and several other odds and ends she has requested.
