110 Thank Yous

It was an emotional, humbling moment. Never before in my 6-plus years as the director of Heaven's Family's Disaster Relief Ministry had I seen such an outpouring of gratitude. My wife, Karin and I were visiting St. Joseph's Christian School last November to check on those we had helped following the terrible earthquake that struck Nepal in April 2015. The school is strategically located in a predominantly Hindu village just outside the capital city of Kathmandu, and has been faithfully shining the light of Christ to its students and their families for many years.

Together, you and I have been able to impact many lives, reminding them that, through it all, God still cares for them. Many hearts have been softened as well, and I'm encouraged to know many have been drawn closer to Jesus as a result of our efforts.

Relief Pours In

"Daddy, I'm happy that we will have rice in our dinner today." Those were the words of a little boy who lives in a flood-ravaged village in Myanmar after receiving emergency rice from Heaven's Family. And for people who eat rice as the primary staple of every meal, that's tantamount to him saying he's happy to have air to breathe!

Much is said in the news lately about the drought in California, but not much is reported about the devastating floods now inundating southern Asia. Our partners in Myanmar, a poor nation into which Heaven's Family has heavily invested for many years through orphanages and a multitude of other projects, have been reporting to us and sending photos of the devastation. Here are a few...
