Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. James 1:27

As you take a peek at our ministry please keep in mind you cannot work your way to heaven! One distinctive of our ministry is that we do ministry work together as a family. This has helped us to avoid many of the "good" things that come along for individuals to do and keeping our family on the same page focused on Him.
Works should be an out pouring of the love for our Lord Jesus Christ, they are not means or a way to be saved. And for us it's also an out pouring of love for our children. In whom we desire them to be mighty of spirit and dedicated to whole hearted service. You'll notice we really increased our mission involvement in 2011 and we began focusing more on service in 2010. So we are new and these things are the works of the Lord in our life, not our works. This is the journal of a family that doesn't have it all together and surely doesn't have all the answers and definitely has nothing to boast about. But if you want to check out a family with a well developed ministry mindset families check out our friends the Hendricks or Mary Oystn at Olwhaven whose adopted about 10 kids! I'm listing our activities as a way to encourage everyone that you can find a place to serve while faithful executing your responsibilities as parents with little children. If you tend to feel guilty for what you are not doing you are not allowed to read anymore and you need to go immediately back to the home page.
The righteous care about justice for the poor, but the wicked have no such concern. Proverbs 29:7
