It was a good day for orphans yesterday, at least in my world.

We had found 95 orphans in the Swaziland dirt last summer with no one to look after them. We felt God saying, “Take care of them.” You can read the story of how we started on Morgan’s blog. And God took our efforts and multiplied them. Here’s a video of the inauguration of our first center for these orphans. You can see my partners in crime, Gary Black and Andrew Shearman in all their glory.



[Incidentally, if any of you are interested in traveling to see and work on this project June 18-25 with Gary and I and our wives, please get in touch with me. We’re conducting a vision trip there. Go to Lisa’s blog to see more about it.]

And over in Pakistan, you remember last month I shared about the plight of six orphans in Pakistan that Emmanuel, a pastor friend of mine, had asked help for. I threw it out there and a bunch of you said that you’d help. Well, we sent the money yesterday and today those six kids will have big smiles on their faces! Thanks so much for caring. Thank you for practicing what the Bible calls “true religion” – helping orphans in their distress. I hope to pass along an update from them in the future.

I’m headed to Seattle this morning. Travel days like today are worth it when orphans eat, laugh, and smile.

  • Oh, I can’t wait to get to love on the gorgeous people. Seriously I believe my real home is in Africa, or where I feel at home.

  • Praise God! I can see our Father smiling down…”Well done My good and faithful servants!”

    I will be praying for this new ministry! May God’s hand be mightily upon it!

    To Him be all the glory,

    Amen!!!

  • awesome! so great to finally see things up and running!!! prayers are really being answered for those gogos!

  • Hope your flight went well. You should be on the ground by now, hopefully. Ash and I were talking about taking next year’s vacation in Swaziland. Definitely want to get over there soon.

  • I can’t wait to get back there at some point! I’m glad that you included this, Nsoko is such an amazing project, God is working there like crazy!

  • I’m with you Morgon… my heart is aching to be back…

    Seth, this is INCREDIBLE. Finally got to watch the video – tears in my eyes. PRAISE GOD!!! It’s HAPPENING! So so so blessed to know you all and to be a part of this. Loved seeing Gary and Papa Shearman too 🙂

I'm motivated to join God in his global reclamation project. He's on the move, setting his sons and daughters free from their places of captivity. And he's partnering with those of us who have been freed to go and free others.
