Patrick & Aleena Rooyakker

Apple Valley, MN

We are Patrick and Aleena Rooyakker! We have been married for 8 years and we have three children (Nikoy, Atuk, and Mudjok). We committed our hearts to loving orphans through adoption even prior to getting married and in 2016, after almost 3 years in the process, we brought our three precious children home from Ethiopia. What a beautiful picture adoption has been in our life of our relationship with Christ and what a great honor and privilage we believe that it is for us to build our family through adoption!

Greatness

Orphan Nigeria

Greatness is a handsome and silly 6 year old boy living in Lagos, Nigeria who has waited in an orphanage his whole life for his forever family. We simply can't wait to bring him home and show him how deeply loved he is!

Ms. Kelsey

Widow Apple Valley, MN

One year ago at 29 years old, Kelsey Ferguson suddenly became a widow, just 4 days before their miracle baby Maxley was born. Maxley has a genetic condition and a heart defect and doctors didn't expect him to live beyond birth. After spending the majority of his first year in the hospital, Maxley is now home and thriving. There are many projects at Kelsey's home that have sat on the back burner over this past difficult year and we are thrilled to love on and support her with a day of service for our Both Hands project.

Our Both Hands Project

Project August 3, 2019

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 Greatness home!
