It’s Time to Celebrate!

Outside the Walls has met a new milestone! As many as 153 million orphans world-wide are trapped in a cycle of hopelessness. Adoptive families all over the world wish to bring fatherless children into their family, however, finances often pose great obstacles or even cause good families to walk away from pursuing children in need. Unfortunately, churches don’t always have the funds necessary to help adopting families in their church. The needs are great and the resources are limited. Out of this need, Outside the Walls, a ministry of Lifesong’s church fund partners was born. The goal? —Reach more children together than each church is able to do alone.  Rich Metcalfe, Program Director at Lifesong, oversees church and fund partner relationships– Over the past 5 years we have seen our church and adoption fund partners grow in their willingness to reach out to give financial assistance to families from Outside the Walls of their … Continue reading

Impacting families outside your church’s walls… Read along as a beautiful testimony is shared from an adoptive family who was given an Outside the Walls matching grant from a church in their community. Please read along to their thankful testimony…   We are so thankful for the Outside the Walls grant that was provided to us through Johnson Ferry Baptist Church Adoption Fund. We attend a small church that is just around 5 years old. Though we have many adoptive families at our church, we have not yet been able to establish an adoption fund.  We are so thankful that Johnson Ferry recognizes we are all the body of Christ and used their Adoption Fund resources to go ‘outside of their walls’ to help us bring our sweet little guy home. Through their matching grant, we were able to raise a large portion of adoptions costs that totaled over $40,000. We did not … Continue reading

Abandoned…Now Adopted!

Adoption Fund helps give forever family to abandoned boys… One fall day in September of 2012, two brothers came home from school. But when ten-year-old Noel and his younger brother Joel got home, they weren’t welcomed by their mom or dad. They opened the door to an empty house.  Everything was gone…even their parents. Not knowing what to do, they walked to a next door neighbor for help. They were met with the open arms of Danny & Angie Terry. This family took Noel & Joel into their home, family and heart that day and every day since. But when the state threatened to take the boys away because their mobile home was too small, Angie desperately called Kristen Coppola, an Adoption Fund leader. Kristen had given her number to Angie’s daughter at school, where her children also attend. God had been preparing Kristen with glimpses into Noel’s life over a year … Continue reading
