A New Heart

Nearly three years ago, we found these little twins lying in a tukel with their mother swaying from a rope above them. Soldiers were invading her village, and she knew all too well what that meant. She just couldn’t bear it all again. By the time the twins were in our hands, they were both […]

Birth Announcement for Valentine’s Day

I’m asking my husband if we can have another child for Valentine’s Day! Ash Wednesday and Valentine’s Day will share February 14th this year, while Easter and April Fool’s Day will share April 1st, 2018. When I learned this odd twist in the calendar, it got me to thinking about how foolish it is to believe […]

Lokuda’s Story

Lokuda was a newborn when we found him shackled to the prison floor alongside his mother and his two small siblings. Lokuda’s mother had been accused of killing her husband. No one bothered to ask how many times he’d beaten, raped, or even thrown her out into the elements with her [their] children so that he could […]

Celebrating the Very Good News

April 2018 marks the 15th birthday of Make Way Partners. Sometimes, I still have to pinch myself to believe I’m awake and all this is real—especially our second high school graduation that took place last month, and sending our first graduates from last year off to university. Both of these graduating classes included children who 12 […]

Celebrating 6 Impossible Things Before Breakfast in 2017 …

“Alice laughed: ‘There’s no use trying,’ she said; ‘one can’t believe impossible things.’ ‘I daresay you haven’t had much practice,’ said the Queen. ‘When I was younger, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.'”  Alice in Wonderland. Alice in Wonderland is a […]

Our Map of the World

At first glance of the below map, you might think, “I’ve seen this before.” And you’d be right; we have used a version of this map before—illustrating all the places where MWP works or has branches. THIS MAP of our WORLD, however, shows not only WHERE we work but also WHO’S equipping the work through prayer and finances—that’d be YOU! All the red markers represent home-sites for MWP; […]

Graduating High School – the New Norm

I trekked along a rutty path, having no idea where it led. Step-by-sweltering step, all I thought about was my aching feet, parched mouth, and empty stomach. But, none of those problems could be solved on the dusty airstrip where I’d been dropped, so off I set in search of answers. A clearing yawped open […]

You’ll Be In My Heart

Unfortunately, not every child has a dad who sits and sings with her, reads with her, or even tucks her safely in bed at night. For children like the unadoptable orphans of Make Way Partners, few will ever even meet or know their fathers. What they DO KNOW is that YOU pray for them, and […]

A Bird’s Eye View of Our Place in the World

No matter if I’m speaking at a university, church, or public forum, one of the most common comments I receive is something along the lines of, “Those Africans have been killing each other for centuries. What difference can we possibly make?” It would be easy to judge this response as harsh and completely void of […]
