Those Folks at St. Peter's

Back in June, 2014 one of OFY’s adoptive parents from a few years back contacted me and said that our agency was selected by her church to be the recipient of their ‘Loose Bills’ program for the month of July, 2014. I was invited to speak at their Saturday evening and Sunday morning services and describe what we are doing at OFY. I particularly emphasized our current efforts in Uganda.

Out of Sight...Out of Mind

I was up early watching the news late last week regarding the violence occurring in the Central African Republic. The piece was on the refugees being created by the warring factions and the resultant camps being set up so that people who are surviving the violence can do just that…survive…barely.


I’m currently reading through an excellent book written by Johnny Carr (with Laura Captari) called Orphan Justice. I was really impacted by a chapter in the book on orphans and orphanages as it brought back to mind many of the same thoughts and feelings that I experienced during my time in Africa earlier this year.
