Update on the urgent need

On Monday we shared with you an urgent need that we have for the ministry in Ethiopia.   I have to be honest that for us to be at that place where we absolutely must find resources quickly to take care of these kids in Ethiopia is something that brings us to our knees crying out to God for help. No … Read More

An urgent need

Friends, we are coming to you from Bring Love In with a huge need today. Usually I would write more of an update and let you know about the kids, the ministry, the impact and even a little about our family and how it all ties together.  I am darn proud of what our forever families and our staff and how every single day they all … Read More

Meet Luther

Hey there,  (I almost said “ya’ll” Clearly Texas is getting to us..) It wasn’t that long ago that we posted on here about the need we have for a new donor relations manager for Bring Love In.   We realized that the one thing that we are not very good at on this end over in America is also the one … Read More

Know someone good?

One of the things that we have known for a long time, and struggled to do anything about is the fact that we simply must hire a US based employee who will be our donor relations manager if we are going to be sustainable with the funding that is coming in to keep things going.   Everyone we talk with, everyone … Read More

Some great news for our family

Well we made it, me and our youngest two daughters landed in Ethiopia and are starting our three week journey to the place that we used to call home for so many years.   And my goodness is it weird to be back this time.   First though let me tell you why our family is having to be apart for so … Read More

Hope in every future

I am going to admit something that I don’t think I have ever said to anybody.  And I don’t mean that in the ‘come read my fantastic blog about my secrets which are really just enticing things to get more eyeballs’ sort of way, I meant that in the ‘I have been scared to admit this to myself for way … Read More

Shoes!

In a little less than two weeks me and our two youngest girls are heading back to Ethiopia to spend some time catching up with all that we have going on over there.   4 AM phone calls will only get you so far, sometimes you just need to sit down with everyone and look into their eyes and connect.   … Read More

Ripping my heart apart

Wow, it has been too long here.   With our family getting moved into our new (and still un-finished remodeled) house this month, I have not found much time to sit down here and write.  I promise, more to come in the way of updates.    I will sum it all up with this for now;  Things are going well in … Read More
