Dedication and Service

A few Sundays ago we got to stand up in front of our church and dedicate our sweet Baby Mo with all three Grandmas, both Grandpas, two uncles, both aunts, and a lot of friends.  :)


Before we went insinde to share our Moses with the church we spent some time in the parking lot sharing our time for the city.  Children's Hunger Fund and Oak Hills Church partnered up for pack 10,000 Food Paks!  Each of the campuses of OHC received truck loads of food and boxes and packed and packed and packed.  By the end of the weekend we has 10,101 Food Paks ready to service the city of San Antonio.  It was a great time to serve with the church, friends, and family!

We are the Body of Christ
Called to be Jesus
In every Neighborhood
In our City and Beyond!


We think it's pretty fitting that the day Moses was born we got to share with him about how he was able to help so many with clean water.  And now on the day he was dedicated we can share in what a blessing CHF is to the spiritually and physically hungry in our city and around the world.  :)

Water Project Update: It is finished! - Dziwanidziwani, Malawi

Dear Friends,

We are overjoyed to share with you this exciting news!  After many, many, (many!) months of waiting, we are finally so glad to share with you that the hard work has paid off! The report is in and the details of our collaborative water project have been revealed! Together we have changed the lives of 432 precious people in Dziwanidziwani, Malawi!  Amazing! It is because of your generous hearts and selfless efforts- fundraising, gift-forgoing, donating; and by the abundant blessings of our Father that this was possible! So many readers, friends, family, and strangers came together to make sure that we could make an impact in helping end the water crisis around the world.  This letter is for each of YOU, because you are a part of something big!

"That change has now been realized, and thanks to you, the people of Dziwanidziwani no longer have to drink water that makes them sick."  These are words that we have been waiting to hear and that this beautiful woman has dreamed about!  This photo encompasses the end of sickness, thirst, disease, and the beginning of hope for this community.  

Thanks again to each and every one of you for all your wonderful help!  This mission is truly complete thanks to you.  Thank you Father for allowing us all to be a part of your beatiful, redemptive work in Africa. And thank you charity:water for making it real, for proving every dollar so that the impact is made visible! 432 people will thrive and grow in a way that was not possible before.  Visit the site of the well and take a look at the village by using the GPS Coordinates -16.13883, 34.88326.   

This project may be over, but in the month it was completed, our son Moses was born and finished his fundraising for his very own water project.  We are excited to celebrate his life with the promise of clean water for others.  As a new feature charity:water, takes projects that do not complete a full project amount and merges them into one project in order to share the information once completed.  We are excited that he will be able to see what others did for him in love when he recieves GPS coordinates of the project he was a part of.

Glory to God. What a blessing to see others be blessed!
