I’m passionate about caring for orphans. So is God – all through scripture. At least 143 Million orphans need caring for in this world – right now.
“Pure and lasting religion in the sight of God our Father means that we must care for orphans and widows in their troubles…” (James 1:27)
I have a passion for orphans and special-needs children. I experienced the miracle of adoption in January 2003 when we adopted Alenah WenYing – a special-needs orphan from China – into our family. Our son, Zachary, also had special-needs from Down syndrome at birth.
After my visit to the tsunami stricken regions of India in 2004, I began the Mighty in the Land FOUNDATION (a Donor-Advised Fund through NCF) – dedicated to advance adoption and care for orphans and special-needs children worldwide . Since then, I’ve ministered to orphans in Haiti and Russia as well.
Our vision is to fund at least 5 orphanages in 5 areas of the world – in honor of my 5 Heavenly family members.
By the grace of God and the generosity of many gracious donors, we’ve funded 7 orphanages on 4 continents, granting over $407,000 since 2004 to care for orphans and special-needs children worldwide!
The FOUNDATION is funded by people who share our passion and donate directly, and from a 10% tithe from Mighty in the Land Ministry (from the gross proceeds of offerings, honorariums, contributions, and materials – before deducting expenses.)
