Here's a short but powerful video that our talented media guys produced for our worship service last Sunday. It quickly shows "before and after" pictures of a few Johnson Ferry families who have seen their homes changed through adoption.

Each family shown has a unique God-story. Each has seen miraculous wonders in their homes. Each has grown in their faith through the process of adoption. And these are just the tip of the iceberg. There were many other families who sent me pictures and told me stories that we just couldn't fit into the time we had.
Pray for these families. Pray that God would sustain them through the challenges they face. Pray that they would daily experience the joy that comes from sacrificial obedience.
And, of course, pray that you would be open to do whatever it takes for God to stretch you and use you to care for the fatherless in some way.
