Turning to Kyrgyzstan

After a very full work schedule this spring, we are now in the process of finalizing plans to return to Kyrygzstan this September.  We will be sharing the details of this very targeted trip in the days ahead....it has to do with equipping those who care for children in orphanages.  We believe God has equipped us far beyond our expectations through our training experience in May with Dr. Karyn Purvis and her staff at the Child Institute of Development. 

More information coming.....thanks for caring and supporting....

Adoption Foster RX: Solutions for Wounded Familes

It began with a phone call 18 months ago from Terry Meeuwsen, co - host of The 700 Club.  "I have just finished reading a book called Wounded Children, Healing Homes and would like to talk with you and your husband about an idea," she said.  We met in Virigina Beach in January of 2011 and what resulted was a video teaching series for adoptive and foster families. 

This 7 session DVD, which features Dr. Karyn Purvis, Dr. Wendy Flowers, Michael and Amy Monroe along with David and me, can be used as a support group study or for individual families struggling with parenting children with a history of trauma.  To get more information about this DVD project, click on the link below the picture. 


We are so thankful to God for the opportunity to participate in this support tool for adoptive/foster families.
