They have had the privilege of adopting their fivechildren from foster care.

Reviews - What do customers think about Launching an Orphans Ministry in Your Church [With DVD]?
Heart moving and powerful Mar 31, 2008
This small book is a phenominal reference book to get your orphan program started in your church. The included CD was very moving and is geared for the pastor and church leadership to get them on board. It leaves some out some details and is somewhat open ended, but every church will need to choose its own direction, ie, international adoption, domestic adoption, foster care, etc. My husband and I are beginning an orphans ministry in our church and this CD and book have been so helpful in opening the hearts and minds of the leadership in our church. We also highly recommend the other adoption resources that Family Life Today has to offer.
