A Zimbabwean Family's Story - Why We Do This...

In 2014, we learned about Homes of Love from Shad and Millie, the parents in Zimbabwe’s first HOL home. What we witnessed at their home appealed to us – young faces with bright smiles, feeling very secure, full of hope, happy, and really at home. When we inquired more they told us about Homes of Love and we couldn't wait to commit ourselves to partner in this ministry. Our goal was to make a difference...

Why I Do This - Janet's Story

My heart for orphans began in the process of adopting our son from Vietnam in April 1994.  My husband stayed home with our daughter as I traveled with good friends, Gary and Debbie Chesney.  After a week in Ho Chi Minh City, I finally traveled with our Vietnamese guide and a government official to south Vietnam to get our son.  In my journal I wrote of pain and sadness as I saw the plight of...

Amanda's Story - Why I Do This

Three dollars … What would you do with three dollars? In America, three dollars can't buy much—a Diet Coke, a pack of gum, or maybe some hair ties. In Cambodia, much of the population and the average Homes of Love partner survives on only three dollars a day. It’s a different world from my closet full of clothes for every season and my daily Starbucks run. When I look down the streets of Phnom Penh,...

An Evening to Remember - Coming Home 2019

Let me set the scene for you. The room is immaculately decorated. There are pops of color everywhere—tons of orange, of course. And wherever you look, you see pictures of smiling faces of children. Now, imagine standing behind a podium and looking across a sea of faces… faces that are loving, generous, and want nothing more than to see good done in the world.

Rex Travels to Southeast Asia (Part 5)

The day finally came for me to meet my forever friend, Lam! This was why I traveled so far: to be Lam’s friend when he is scared, happy, excited, or lonely. I am a gift he will never forget. Thanks to Cassie for taking me on the journey, and to all of you for loving my new friends in HOL. - Rex

Rex Travels to Southeast Asia (Part 4)

Can you believe it? I'm here! It was a really long trip (32 hours total!) but now my feet are on the ground in Southeast Asia. We walked off the plane and headed to customs. The lines were so long!

Rex Travels to Southeast Asia (Part 3)

It was a long flight to Tokyo, but I made it there!  We had a layover for a couple of hours, so I made sure to find the McDonald's in the airport for lunch. After that, it was time for our last flight to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. The flight attendant thought I was so cute that she wanted...

Rex Travels to Southeast Asia (Part 2)
