Thanks to many of you for joining us last week in praying for the speakers, presenters and musicians that are preparing for CAFO2014.

It’s that time of year, when New Years Resolutions from a week ago are already sounding like a bad idea.  Whether it’s weight loss, book lists or travel plans, sometimes we have a tendency to dream big.

Even if we don’t end up making or keeping our goals exactly or perfectly, we are hopefully still headed towards it.  So, now that we are a week into 2014, I have to ask, did any of your New Years Resolutions include orphans? I challenge you to read and consider revising your resolutions to include these three simple ways that you can impact orphans this year… Pray – spend time daily praying for orphans in their distress.

Pray // 5 Ways YOU can be a Light to a Child in Need

For more information visit Please enjoy this update on Lifesong Ethiopia from Gary Ifft as he shares how our students are building a solid foundation through prayer… Recently I went around the back side of our new two-story school building. As I turned the corner I saw about 30-40 students sitting on the stairs blocking my path. I asked, “What kind of club is this?,” expecting that they were hiding from the staff and up to no good. The boy standing at the bottom of the stairs very politely responded “tselot,” (prayer). I was taken aback and asked them to please continue. Later, our school director, Solomon, came to me and reported that two groups of students had asked … Continue reading
