Family Friday: “Adoption is hard…and worth it”

We find ourselves at yet another Family Friday! Please join me in praise with Greg & Charisa and their growing family and as they share the pure FAITHFULNESS God has shown them in their journey…   This adoption was an adoption of faith almost from day one!  We signed on with our agency in February and were excited to again add to our family through the miracle of adoption. Greg found out that his position was being cut and he would lose his job, along with the $5000 adoption credit his company would give. Yikes! There were so many questions at that time—where would he find a job? Would we have to move? What about the adoption? Did we hear God wrong?  We chose to have faith and believe God had something in store for us and He did! Greg was offered our job with our local food bank which … Continue reading

Matching Gift & Give-a-Way! – Village of Hope

**New Opportunity** We invite you to share a word of encouragement to our staff at Village of Hope-Guatemala. To do so, please comment on this blog or on our Facebook wall and it will be forwarded to our staff. Thank you in advance for your kind words of support! Please enjoy this update from Village of Hope-Guatemala, Every child deserves a safe place where they can be a kid. A place where they can freely problem solve, use their imagination, develop physical strength, coordination and balance. A place where they can grow, dream, imagine, explore and gain a sense of self. For many children in Guatemala this is nonexistent. Many of the children here lose their childhood too quickly due to the stress of just trying to survive.   (photo credit)    The children who come to Village of Hope often have lived in desperate poverty and will for the first time have a safe, … Continue reading

Soup’s on…

  I’m sure many you remember our friend, Addisyn Block, who has been continually advocating for orphans, specifically for our kiddos at Lifesong Ethiopia after her visit there this summer. (check out previous blog posts about Addisyn here and here) We recently received this letter from Addisyn along with her lunch money for the past several months.  That’s right–this school year, Addisyn has eaten the African soup she saw Gary and Peggy Ifft make in Ethiopia every day, and is donating the money normally spent on lunch to kids in Africa.  Yeah…we think it’s great too!      Thanks again Addisyn for your continued support and amazing example…we feel so blessed to partner with you in serving the fatherless.

Jehovah Jireh – The Lord Will Provide

No, it’s not Friday…but we always love sharing some of our adoption stories with you–no matter the day of the week! Meet the Ruggards: The Ruggard family brought home little Tripp this past April from Ethiopia.  Lifesong was able to provide them with a matching grant and also assisted in their fundraising efforts.       What a huge blessing it was to partner with your ministry in our adoption journey.  Lifesong not only provided a $2,500 gift, but also the encouragement to send adoption support letters to our family and friends.  Without this encouragement we may never have allowed God to provide through our family and friends the funds needed to finance our adoption.  –Ruggards Thanks Ruggard family for sharing your heart and your journey with us.  It’s amazing for us to be able to see our God, the Ultimate Provider work in your lives!! “And my God will meet all … Continue reading
