As God molded our testimony, into the ministry it is today. We realized that He allowed us to go through the struggles so we could empathize with the families. God has allowed us many years of building relationships with our families and our children. I value and treasure each one. The life in the mountains is hard. Many of our families have no running water or electricty. Many of our children are sick of poor nutrition and the poor water conditions. Transportation maybe a four wheeler for a family of four. God has placed a deep love and passion for His mountain people in my Heart. I love my Appalachian children and my families with a Protective Love and Passion that can only come from the Father.
