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.

A Sweet Ending for Cherry

I want to tell you about the young girl in Myanmar who felt she had no choice but to give her newborn daughter to an orphanage. Her story hits home for me because my wife and I just welcomed our third child into our family. When I hold my son in my arms and look into his sweet, innocent face, I’m horrified at the thought of abandoning him to be raised in an institution!

The Secret Sauce

So often we tell you about farmers being able to feed their families and make a profit utilizing Farming God’s Way methods. But we also want to show you the tremendous impact, both spiritually and practically, of having farmers work together in GLGs (God’s Love Groups).

Defying the Giant

China. Bibles. Smuggling. Three words, each one filled with power and intrigue. But put them together, and you have an unparalleled opportunity for an undercover mission to transform thousands—perhaps millions—by bringing God’s Word to our hurting brothers and sisters in Christ.

Love Breaks Through

Rejection is the constant companion of children born into the stigma of leprosy families, despite remaining unaffected by the disease. They must live with the stigma of never fitting in with their “normal” peers, forever keeping them locked in a prison of isolation.

Danger Ahead

Of the 40 countries I have visited in my mission career, Nepal is near the top for most beautiful, most open to the gospel...and most dangerous when it comes to its mountain roads. Navigating these treacherous byways requires nerves of steel. To make matters worse, nearly a third of the population cannot afford a car, so they ride small, cheaply-made motorcycles, which only adds to the road’s chaos—and danger.

To the Ends of the Earth

I am not sure where the “ends of the earth” are located (or how many “ends” there are), but I’m guessing they include the far reaches of Northeastern Siberia. In this frozen tundra, some of the most unreached people on earth reside. Few have even heard of the tribal groups that live in the region. Even fewer have taken seriously Jesus’ command to share the life of God with them by going to these particular “ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8).
