Josh & Deborah Yoder

Wakarusa, IN

We have been married since May of 2011 and have continued to grow in our love for each other and for the Lord! We both are math teachers and love pouring into the lives of students and the youth of our community. We have been hoping and praying to bring home a child through adoption for many years as we long to raise a child to know our Savior.

Baby Elliana

Orphan USA

This past October we were matched with a Marshallese family in Arkansas, and we will be bringing home our baby girl in April! Our hearts are full of joy and wonder as we praise God for the opportunity to become parents and to show our daughter Christ's love and mercy!

A Waiting Widow

Widow Wakarusa, IN

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 March 9, 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? We have a matching grant of $4,000!! Your donation can have DOUBLE the impact!!

Help bring Baby Elliana home!

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress...

Both Hands. One for the widow. One for the orphan.
