After seeing old friends and meeting many new adoptive parents at this adoption conference, my daughter, Kristy and I went to Springfield for another powerful moment surrounded by people giving sacrifically. It was the "Kids Helping Kids" Haiti Benefit Concert. The beauty of these moments for me was that my precious family was a part of the "giving today." Here are some pictures that tell the story....
These talented children helped raise nearly $2000 for a girls' orphanage in Haiti. The young girls in Haiti were safe, but their orphanage was totally destroyed.

My son-in-law, Rick and daughter, Kristy both have a tremendous heart for ministry. We hope someday they will be able to join us in Krygyzstan or where ever God may lead them in their own adventure.
