We had a great day. Breakfast with Beth and Kathy Couch and the Fields of Grace ministry team. A long 2:1 meeting with Beth and HCBC’s new Global Outreach Pastor on how we can expand our relationship with Back2Back Ministries. Beth speaking at Hill Country tonight to a small, but God-selected group of individuals who have now caught the passion for caring for the fatherless. God is in control. God is moving through us at Hill Country. Here is Beth speaking tonight. I’ll also leave you with a video of a story she told tonight of a special-needs girl named Gabby. Get a tissue.

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.

So what have we been up to with Fields of Grace lately? Well, with November being National Adoption Month, we’ve got quite a few things planned. See below the full list.

Heart Gallery of Central Texas November 15-23
HCBCNW considers it a privilege to host this portrait gallery of Central Texas foster children. The Heart Gallery provides awareness of the need for adoptive families, and more importantly helps find permanent families for children. Please take time to view the gallery and pick up additional information.

Foster/Adoptive Community Fellowship November 15
Come celebrate the opening of the Heart Gallery with other foster and/or adoptive families. We will have a potluck dinner and fellowship and the gallery will be open throughout.

Foster Care Information Meetings November 19 and 23
There’s a critical shortage of loving, secure homes that will unconditionally commit to making a difference in the lives of these hurting children. We will be holding 2 identical meetings to provide information and answer questions for those interested in becoming Foster Parents. Training to come in January 2009.

Beth Guckenberger, Author of Reckless Faith November 22
Beth Guckenberger and her husband Todd established Back2Back Ministries to help orphans—the poorest, most defenseless members of a needy populace of Monterrey, Mexico. Come hear Beth share about how God used her experiences to grow her faith into a reckless faith—a willingness to trust even when you don’t understand. Pick up a copy of her book in the Resource Center. Also, take a look at some of her interviews here.

Tree of Lights November 30
For the second year, the HCBCNW Tree of Lights will include the wish lists of Central Texas Foster children. Please stop by and pick up a tag or two to provide a special gift for these children.

Adoption Loan Fund Beginning January 2009
We are announcing an Adoption Loan Fund program, beginning January 2009. While many believers are stepping out in faith and following God’s direction to care for orphans and expand their families through adoption, seemingly insurmountable financial obstacles along the way often discourage them. By establishing an adoption fund, we can minister to HCBCNW families by removing the financial barriers frequently faced by adoptive families.
Full details on all of these activities can be found at our website at http://www.hcbc.com/fieldsofgrace.
