Visiting Orphan’s ~ Go. Be. Love.
In the fall of 2011 we were lead to an amazing ministry by our friends Wynne & Stephen Elder. Ah! So much has happened since the night they came over to share about their Visiting Orphans trip. That night was our first time to meet them in person. After about 4 hrs we had 2 new friends who we've grown to love and consider part of our family. In less than 12 hours from our visit, God laid it on our hearts to take our oldest 3 girls on a short term mission trip to Rwanda & Ethiopia & less than 12 hours after that God raised the funds for that to happen! Sid & I have since taken our oldest 5 children on a trip to Rwanda & Ethiopia, joined a medical team in Ethiopia, led a medical trip to Rwanda, and led a team to Haiti all with VisitingOrphans. This ministry goes above and beyond. Always striving to do trips better, discipling their team members, helping rather than hurting, and keeping Jesus in the center of all they do. Check out this promo video and their website to learn more about this amazing ministry. Check out all the amazing mission trips and Go. Be. Love! You will never regret going to be the hands and feet of Jesus & your life will be forever changed. Because of the opportunity to be part of a short term mission trip God has wrecked the hearts of our family and we are grateful for Visiting Orphans and for their willingness to allow God to us them.
