We feel that God is calling us to take seriously His charge to care for the fatherless. We are in the process of adopting a precious child to add to our family. While we are in the very early stages of the process, we feel confident that God is leading us to adopt a child from Uganda. As many of you may already know, Africa is home to roughly 39% of all the world’s orphans. Uganda alone contains more than 2.3 million orphans. While Chris was in Uganda in April of 2011, he got a chance to meet some of these precious children at an orphanage he visited. While there are many godly men and women working very hard in such orphanages to care for those who have lost their parents, there is no substitute for a godly home. God instituted the home as the basic building block of society, and we believe that opening up our home to a new family member is the best way to honor God in caring for the fatherless. . .
