• Immediate Needs

    updated 8.29.11

    We do what we do as missionaries supported by people like you.

    We also prefer to give away as much content as we can, and not cloud that issue with a lot of public requests. That said, we do have specific needs that are met by people who believe the work we do has value.

    If you'd like a short list of immediate financial needs, you can find it HERE.

    Thanks!

Hats off to Possum Trot

The name Possum Trot, Texas, is perfect. It’s lyrical, descriptive, and more than a little ironic. If possum really could trot, you wouldn’t find so many laying on the road.

The municipality of Possum Trot is less than perfect…but it’s a better place than it could be, thanks to Bishop W.C. Martin and the Bennet Chapel Missionary Baptist Church.

In this little town of 300, the Bishop pastors a flock of 200. And in that 200 are 23 families who have adopted children…over 70 in a few short years. You read that right. 70+ kids in a town of 300.

Bishop Martin has a bone to pick with the church of America that refuses to understand how reaching their community is intrinsically linked to the orphans among us. In November, he told ABC news “”There’s no reason in the world why no child, no child should be in the foster care system. The system right now ought to be out looking for a job.”

Hats off to Possum Trot and the Bishop for pioneering the way for those of us who seek to raise the unwanted and neglected in a community of faith.

  2. Thanks for this. It was touching. I pray that the entire body would be made up of 60% adopted, rejected children…like this community. Because…we are adopted!
