Rest in the Midst of Chaos

These past few months have been a little bit chaotic, which might be the reason that this update has been so long in the making! But we are beginning to learn a major lesson in our lives, which we want to share with you guys through events that have happened these past few weeks.  One of the biggest events of the year for Richard was the planning and execution of the Orphanos Training Retreat in Dallas, TX. It is an event where we have our missionaries from all over the globe come... Read More

Ministry & Adventures in Kyrgyzstan

Tim and his wife are Orphanos partners living and serving youth and families in Kyrgyzstan through various avenues. Tim and his team just finished their first big project with their special needs ministry. They took 73 kids and volunteers to a horse ranch, where the kids did therapy horseback riding. They also had carnival games, quad bikes and a magic show (Tim was the magician.) The kids had a great time, but the biggest positive is that they received great feedback from the... Read More

PVI's 11 Years of Ministry

It was a dark night eleven years ago when we arrived from South Africa.  Zimbabwe was quiet, most people were asleep.  All we had was an address.  Searching a dark street in Zimbabwe, we found the home of Pastor Bonface and his wife Tabitha. This couple are the founders of the  Youth with a Vision  ministry and the  Sending Church  which meets in a school classroom in a dusty suburb of Harare.   We ate a simple welcoming meal and got down to...

Strawberry Picking in Korea

  In Korea, schools celebrate their anniversary by giving the children a school holiday!  This April our partner  Isaac Children’s Home  celebrated their elementary school anniversary. For a fun “day-off” activity, the ICH volunteers took the kids on a field trip to a strawberry farm.  Wow what a day it was!     Staff were initially worried students would become uncomfortable picking the strawberries.  These are...

TBRI's Immediate Impact:Two Levels

Dear Friends of Global Orphan Care, I’ve just returned from two intense months in Russia and Mexico, capping off a long seven-month period of extensive travel and training. I’m tired. Now it’s good to sit back and reflect. Has all this flurry of activity actually accomplished anything?  I am moved to consider looking at this question from several angles. Orphans Impacted More than 200 orphans in Russia and 400 orphans in Mexico directly impacted by my... Read More

Kids, River Crossings, Portuguese, Braids, Deep Conversations, and My Hero!

Well, this update is going to be mainly centered around my trip to South America this past month, although I have a dedication at the end of the update. So after travelling to Peru (last update), I headed to Ecuador!   A big part of this trip was getting to spend time as a family. I hadn’t been able to see some of my kids who are from Ecuador in over 2 years, so it was so great to be able to meet up. I first went down to the coast of Ecuador to spend a few days with...

Holdin' Down the Fort

This past month has gone from one extreme of having lots of family around to now just being by myself with the kids, but let me tell you a little bit about the highs, lows, and in-betweens.    I know that we have shared in the past about Peyton and Austin, but we love both of those boys so much. We really enjoy being able to share a deep love for missions and learning about a global God together, so we try to spend as much time with them as we can.  First, we are... Read More

Rewiring and Restoring Blog #2

To all who prayed me through this last trip to Russia... THANK YOU!  I hope this little report will be a tremendous encouragement to you that our prayers do matter.  I have absolutely no doubt, that your prayers were the reasons I got through all the teachings in spite of being sick and exhausted most of the time, for the incredible effectiveness of the trainings, and the ease of preparations in spite of everything being last minute. First I trained about 30 lay church... Read More

Leprosy... in White River South Africa? Never!

Well that was my response until I met Agosthino. Until I looked into his infected eyes, felt the missing finger digits in a gentle hand shake and saw tender gratitude in a pain-weary face. Agosthino, poor and emaciated and suffering the cruel legacy of leprosy, came alone from Mozambique as a foreign migrant seeking medical attention. He got more than he hoped for.   After arriving in Msholozi township in White River and finding a place to sleep, Agosthino gathered his... Read More
