The agency is New Horizons for Children. http://nhfc.org/ For over 15 years, New Horizons for Children has been helping families step out in faith and step into an international mission trip from home for a 4-6 week visit during the summer or winter. Orphaned children worldwide desperately need the love of a family and to know the love of Jesus. NHFC exists so these children will know that they have value and they are not forgotten. Our hope and prayer is that each child’s heart becomes intertwined with a family and that together lives are forever changed.

Episode 32: Jen, Mom of three boys: 13, 9, 5

August 30, 2017

Jen’s words of encouragement from God’s Word:

Hebrew 4:15-16- "This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin. So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most."

Proverbs 15:1- "A gentle answer deflects anger, but harsh words make tempers flare."

Matthew 11:28-30-"Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls.For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.” 

Lamentations 3:22-23- "The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is His faithfulness; His mercies begin afresh each morning."
