Safe Families for Children is a program that provides temporary homes for children while parents deal with crisis situations. The goal of the Safe Families for Children Ministry is to offer support in a time of need and reunite children with their families in a stronger home environment. This temporary care for children in need gives parents time to establish stability in their homes while providing a safe place for their children. Scott and Julie Kruizenga are currently involved in this super program. You can contact her or Bethany Christian services for more information. Watch this video for more information.
His Home in Haiti from Shari Farrell. We would appreciate prayer for finding the appropriate lawyer that will help us pursue Special Juvenile Immigrant Status for John Walton. We are praying for a lawyer that will work for small fees or pro bono. Also – please pray for HIS Home for Children. Haiti is on the verge of civil war and supplies are scarce. Prayers for safety and supplies to feed and care for 72 children and the staff.
