A Confident Expectation

Matt and Abby recently became 2nd-time adoptive parents when they domestically adopted little Olivia Renee Hope.  We are continually amazed at how the Lord can profide for adoptions.

Adoption of Faith…

Aaron & Gwen, one of our adoptive couples, recently brought home little Tariku from Ethiopia.  Listen in with us, as they share part of their story… “We started the adoption process because our hearts broke for the orphan child.  There are so many children with no hope and no love…We had the choice to step out in faith or just ignore God.  We chose to follow.  This decision has changed our lives, and our faith has grown, our relationship with God is stronger, and our marriage is better.  God does reveal Himself, we just need to be still and be willing to listen and to follow Him, no matter the cost.” Thanks Aaron, Gwen & family for partnering with us in your adoption journey.  We pray that God will continue to bless your lives with joy and prace because of your active obedience to His call!

Pure religion in a picture…

Josh and Jenn recently brought home their two darling children from Ethiopia.  Lifesong was blessed to be able to partner with them along with the Louisville Orphan Care Initiative in providing them with a matching grant. Take a glance with us into their lives as they live out James 1:27 in a very real and active way… The Lord has given us the privilege of developing a relationship over the last few years with a 93 year old widow at our church named Geneva. I visit Geneva every other week at her home, and we pray at the end of our time together. I’ve often been struck by the beauty of her prayers for our children, and thought at those times about how God’s Word tells us that He cares for the widows and the orphans. It’s especially sweet for me to be part of seeing a widow care for orphans … Continue reading

‘Every chance I get…’

Every chance I get, I point adopting families (and those who think they might be) to Lifesong for Orphans. Our Christ Jesus is using this ministry to empower families to adopt children, and thus to point the whole church to the gospel that saves us and the mission that sends us.                                 –Russell D.

He also serves as a preaching pastor at Highview Baptist Church, where he ministers weekly at the congregation’s Fegenbush location.
