Thank you for attending the Fields of Grace event last Sunday. I’m glad that you all could make it and enjoyed meeting you.  I also appreciate you filling out the information form and letting us know how the ministry can serve you.   As things progress, I’ll send you updates on things that are happening within the ministry that you might want to participate in.  Our next big event will be the babysitter training for folks that would like to serve the foster families in the area by being trained babysitters. I’ll send out dates, etc on this as things get firmed up. The timeframe we are looking at is August.

One thing you can do now that would be a great help is to forward this email on to other families that you know of so that we can let them know about future ministry events.

Also, I’m not going to send a bunch of emails out on this list, but if you want to be removed, let me know and I’ll take your email off…

I Never Knew

Grown In My Heart blog has a “carnival” going on now.  It’s titled What No One Told Me About Adoption and asks the questions

  • What did people forget to tell you about adoption?
  • What did they omit or conveniently not tell you before you adopted or relinquished your child?

It’s an interesting read.  Check it out here.  Scroll down past the comments and read what others have shared.

What are your thoughts?  We’d love to hear from you.

We are please to be hosting Beth Guckenberger at Hill Country Bible Church this Saturday evening (Nov. 22) at 7pm.Reckless Faith

Beth recently wrote a book called Reckless Faith and she’ll tell how she and her husband Todd left the U.S. more than ten years ago to move to Monterrey, Mexico, to care for the fatherless of Mexico. They are with Back2Back Ministries and our ministry, Fields of Grace, has had the priviledge to take two groups down there to work alongside Todd and Beth and their teams providing not only ‘care for today,’ but also planting seeds that one day the children would learn of an eternal ‘hope for tomorrow.’

Beth GuckenbergerWe’ll be in the cafe area of HCBC, just off the Northwest Lobby. We’ll have copies of her book available for purchase. We hope you can join us. Children are welcome.

Take a look at this short video Beth recently did with Zondervan, her publishing company, in advance of the book being available. In it she tells the heart-wrenching story of how some of these children come to live in the children’s homes they serve.
