Spiritual & Physical Harvest

Source: Lifesong for Orphans .

Lifesong Farms-Ukraine has provided stable employment with a safe Christian environment to many of our graduates, older kids from adoptive families and church youth.  Two of our graduates, Ruslan (19) and Sveyta (19), are very active with the farm operation assisting Sergei with picking. They both have shown great work ethic, which is very inspiring for us and serve as a great example for others.  Ruslan and Sveyta both play a significant role in the harvest at our farm. It’s inspiring to see such a combination of spiritual and physical harvest. We are thankful our farm is much more than just growing, picking and selling berries. Being a part of our farm project is very affirming to our kids, building their self-worth in an environment that points them to Christ. Please join us in praying for the harvests going on at our farms in Ukraine – the berries AND the young men and women who we … Continue reading

From Adoption to Advocacy {Family Friday}

Source: Lifesong for Orphans .

We are so thankful for the role Lifesong played in the adoption of our daughter.  They created a place for our family and friends to come alongside us and support us financially as we went through the adoption process.  This helped eased the financial burden that comes with adoption. While we were in Ethiopia visiting our daughter and going to court to adopt her, we travelled to Ziway to visit the Lifesong schools and see the work that they are doing there.  It impacted us in a huge way!  We saw first-hand how we could financially support the schools and how they bring opportunity to this region in Ethiopia. We also saw how their child sponsorship program is easing the financial burden for families in Ziway and allowing families to stay together.  God used our daughter’s adoption to put a passion in us to advocate for the Lifesong schools and … Continue reading
