NATIONAL PRAYER GATHERING FOR SOUTH SUDAN JULY 13-19 – AND 40 DAYS OF PRAYER AND FASTING CHAINS PRIOR TO THE CORPORATE CALL TO PRAYER A Nation on It’s Knees – II Chronicles 7:14 / Joel 2:12-29 Dear Friend, There is a song written, called “What if my people prayed?” Oh, how I yearn for there to be no ‘What if’s’. Let’s just pray with all our hearts while we have the time, still have the breath, and people are still alive, yearning for their land to be healed.

To Be a Champion of Faith

Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it.

Gloria’s Home-Going

Posted by on Apr 15, 2013 in Personal Updates | 0 comments

On Tuesday, March 26th, we laid Gloria, our eldest House of Hope daughter, in the arms of our Heavenly Father. With broken hearts, a lot of tears, and a lot of love, we stood with our precious children from our home, as they were comforted by the presence of the Holy Spirit. Gloria, was one of our first four girls in House of Hope.  She came to us from a World Vision referral. Several years after her arrival, we began to have the children’s blood screened for all kinds of diseases (that is not a normal procedure here), and we found that Gloria was positive for Hepatitis B. We were...
