What's Happening

One Year & A Completed Vision

Published June 6, 2014 – Categories: Caring for Orphans, Family, Haiti, LSM, News

One year ago today, Zach Bertsch (Cancer Redemption Project) went home to be with Jesus.

(Read the story here.) We have been so blessed to walk with you all over the last few years and see God provide along this bittersweet journey. The Cancer Redemption Project in Cavaillon, Haiti has provided forever families for 72 orphaned and extremely vulnerable children. A church and school for the surrounding area are now the highest point in that village – shining brightly as a remembrance of God’s faithfulness and eternal hope.

Since Zach’s death, his wife Jenny has tirelessly continued the vision to raise the rest of the ongoing support they committed to finding for the Home of Hope families. The office has been full of anticipation over the last several months as we’ve watched funds come in to complete their fundraising goals. God has been faithful!

Kay's Life is Changed & You Can Be a Part of It

Published May 22, 2014 – Categories: Caring for Orphans, Family, Haiti, LSM

As of this morning, we only need $253/ month yet to “Finish the Vision.” Would you stand with us to provide forever families for 24 vulnerable children in Haiti?

Become an ONGOING PARTNER here.

Becoming a sponsor means that you’re providing a lifelong difference for children just like Kay*. She is a daughter in one of the Cancer Redemption Project Homes that’s been open for about a year. Before she was able to come into the Abba family, Kay lived in pretty desperate circumstances. Kay’s father was a drunk who was abusive. She was beaten a lot and was severely malnourished. All she’d known in life was pain, fear and hunger. At 10 years old, she’d never been to school.

We’re so close to reaching a monumental goal and we’re looking for YOU to help us “Finish the Vision.” We are so excited for the progress – and look forward to seeing God come through in some incredible ways as we gain the final sponsorship for the last two Homes of Hope at the Cancer Redemption Project.


Becoming Home

Published May 14, 2014 – Categories: Adoption, Caring for Orphans, LSM, News

“This matchless beauty, this unspeakable pain – all woven together – this is at the root of God’s love for the orphan. It is his invitation to each of us as well.” – Jedd Medefind, from Becoming Home

If you haven’t picked it up yet, Becoming Home is a quick read you won’t want to miss. Jedd Medefind (President of CAFO) wrote it with Barna Group as part of a short series called FRAMES.  FRAMES was created so you can read less and know more on some of the biggest ideas challenging our viewpoints today. And for those who are interested in adoption, foster care and global orphan care – Becoming Home  just might change the way you think about why you do what you do, and encourage your journey!

If you’ve heard about our Ranch in Fondfrede, Haiti, you’ll know that there’s some incredible, innovative things happening there. What you might not know at a glance though, is the research and development efforts going into it. Or what it means for an entire generation of children in Haiti. Or what a difference its making in the surrounding communities today.

How has your week been? This morning as I glanced through the news headlines I just had to stop and think about life outside of my little sphere.
