The Heaven’s Family Blog

About this blog:

Every month, Heaven’s Family helps far more people than we could ever highlight in our quarterly magazines. For that reason, this blog contains additional photos and stories of some of the “least of these” among our spiritual family whom we’ve recently been blessed to serve.

The government has increased its persecution and believers are being fined for their beliefs.

“Help us, Jesus!”

I tried to imagine what it would be like to endure a Category 5 hurricane generating 185 mph sustained winds, dumping 3 feet of rain, and pushing a wall of seawater over 20 feet tall across the island, submerging all but a few small areas of high ground, incessantly pounding everything in its path to shreds—and even moving large cement block homes hundreds of feet off their foundations. Most trees were uprooted or snapped off; those that remained were barren, leafless skeletons.

Encouraging Progress!
