Fort Mill, SC

I am very excited to bring another precious daughter into my life through adoption. Thank you for your part in this unfolding story. May God be honored as a result of each step I take along this path. I want to thank you in advance for participation in this project. I am so blessed by your encouragement and support as I bring my daughter Tirzah Jyothika home as soon as possible from India. The meaning of Tirzah’s name in Hebrew is ‘she is my delight’ and her middle name Jyothika means “a burning lamp that has not gone out.”

Tirzah Jyothika

Orphan India

I am adopting my daughter from an orphanage in India. Tirzah Jyothika Wilhelm is from Telangana and is currently in an orphanage. Jyothika is seven months old and only 9lbs. She has been very sick and needs medical care.

A Waiting Widow

Widow Fort Mill, SC

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 September 8, 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?
