13 reasons why I'm just now posting Christmas!

And here they are!

We had all the kids at my parents' house in Wilsonville, AL. Out of 13 nights over the weeks of Christmas and New Years, we spent 10 nights under 1 roof (they spent 3 nights with families from our home church...words cannot express how grateful we are to them for those 3 nights). We had a great time and there were lots of highlights. Of course I was planning on keeping everyone up to date with what we were doing...oh well! To get the full scoop of all we did at Christmas, you'll have to see the blogs below!

My mom and dad worked really hard to get the house ready for Christmas. They were worn out by the time we left, but the kids had a Christmas they'll never forget.


They all have a story...

This year's children came to us all the way from Nepal, Uganda and the Philippines. Most of them come from children's homes, but they all have a story of trials that God has brought them through. Some of them have faced things in their young lives that most of us won't face in a lifetime. We praise the Lord for the ministries that love and care for these kids, and most importantly, are teaching them what it means to live for Christ. These children are the future Christian leaders to some of the most unreached areas of our world. We are so blessed to be able to disciple them and have them here as missionaries to the U.S. this year.

give hope

Everywhere we tour, people have the opportunity to give HOPE by sponsoring a child. Just $30 a month provides a little boy or girl with food, clothing, medicine and an education, but it also gives that child the opportunity to hear about Jesus...the only HOPE for eternity! Maybe this is something you've always wanted to do, but you just wanted to make sure it was a trustworthy organization. Maybe you came to a concert and are still thinking about it. Whatever the case, we hope that you will prayerfully consider sponsoring a child. There's no better time to invest in eternity! 

Tour Schedule
