Pure and undefiled religion before God the Father is this: to care for orphans and widows in their misfortune and to keep oneself unstained by the world. - James 1:27 (NET)
Our family started ten years ago with the marriage of Joel and Janel in El Paso, TX. God has placed the opportunity of adoption on our hearts as a way to care for those without a family, and so we seek to bring a child home from an orphanage in China to raise with our other three children. As God has blessed us in many ways, with a roof over our heads, food to eat, the best medical care in the world, steady provision, a wonderful church home, and a community of family and friends, we believe that the best way we can practice Pure & Undefiled Religion right now with our young family is right where we live: in our home.
We have chosen to use Adoption Bridge as a means of communicating our story and providing the opportunity to help us, by means of informed prayers and financial support. Whatever your connection to us may be, we thank you for your prayers, contributions, or simply your interest in our journey!
