Bring on the Craziness!

We usually start each update by looking at the previous month’s update, just so we know where to start. As we were reading the last update, there were a few sentences that stuck out: “So these past few weeks have been a little crazy. It feels like we have been in planes, trains, and automobiles (pun intended!) a lot, but honestly the deep relationships that we have formed and continue to form have made it all worth it.” Wow! We weren’t ready for what was next…so... Read More

Cathey Christmas Update

“He has sent Me to preach the gospel to the poor, give sight to the blind, proclaim release to the captives, heal the brokenhearted and proclaim the favorable year of the Lord” (Luke 4:18). This verse has helped me crystalize what I believe to be my life calling. I am so compelled by Jesus’ mission statement. His message was about the eternal Kingdom of God, but he explained it by showing its application to peoples’ material, physical, emotional and spiritual... Read More

Time Zones, State Lines, and Deep Friendships

Thank you so much to those who have been praying for us the past month! It has been great to be asked how things are going and to know that there are people out there who are thinking and praying for us daily. We have needed it as this past month has been filled with travel and some crazy experiences. We do have a very important request that you can be praying for at the end in this update.

The End of Summer

Summer is over! It is really sad to see it go, as we had some really beautiful times as a family, but all good things must come to an end. We are still trying to hold onto the hot weather for as long as we can!!! (Although not holding onto it as tight as these girls were the frogs...don't worry, no frogs were harmed!) Two of the coolest things that happen every year at the beginning of July are the 4 th and Santiago’s birthday. Usually, we are either out of the country or... Read More

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!

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

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
