In an effort to try and keep everyone more up to date about what I’m up to, I’m posting House of Friends’ April Newsletter. It’s hot off the press with some great news about different things the Lord is beginning to do with the orphanages we’ve started in Uganda. You can read the newsletter by clicking here.
One of the areas of my life I’ve been a little bit silent about is my involvement with House of Friends. House of Friends is a group of people that was brought together by this guy in January of 2008 in an attempt to launch missions movements all over the earth in the context of orphanages, night and day prayer, and church planting.
Since I’m a huge fan of caring for the poor, touching the nations, night and day prayer and church planting, being involved was real no-brainer for me. I’ve been shocked at what Jesus has allowed us to be part of even though we aren’t very large. This summer I’ll be part of a team going to Ethiopia to scout out some possibilities for more involvement there. (You’ll probably here more about this later.)
Anyways, I’m going to make an effort to provide the cause a little more cover here on the blog, starting with publishing the most recent newsletter. There is actually a little more in-depth article about our time with Gizaw and John Gross which I talked about here and a lot of information about how you can get involved helping widows, orphans, and the lost of the nations. If you’re interest is piqued, you can check out our website here or join our cause on Facebook here.
Check out the newsletter here. I will post more as they become available.
“Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world. (James 1:27)“
