Tomorrow I will be making a big announcement on the blog regarding what you can practically do to help orphans and be involved in stopping vulnerable children from being trafficked along with a brand new resource website. This is in response to many of you asking what you can do. No money involved! 🙂

I'm looking forward to seeing many of you at Christian Alliance for Orphans Conference in Minneapolis on Thursday. I will be teaching a brand new message from the main stage at 10:00 am entitled, "Hope Dies Last." Following that I will be involved in a breakout session on a panel called, "Engaging Youth and College Age for Orphan Ministry, then teaching, "Human Trafficking and Orphans" at 2:00-3:00pm. 

What's also really cool is that we will have the beginning of The Orphan Experience set up for everyone to view at the Conference. It connects art, artifacts, and video together so you are able to walk in the shoes of an orphan. This will be phase one, make sure you can to check it out. 

Please stop by and say hello at the Children's HopeChest table. I will only be there on Thursday, then I'm heading to San Francisco to speak at Menlo Park Presbyterian Church.

Thanks for your prayers during this season. I'm really feeling burdened, overwhelmed, and generally attacked in a number of areas. I'm sure it has a ton to do with the ground we are breaking, the orphans we are helping and our last trip infiltrating issues of sex-traffciking. God is with us, who can be against us?!
