Check out this video with Scotty Smith, Kurt Coble, and Brent Cundall as they talk about World Music Mission‘s October 1st concert. This is an event that I am very excited about. The family that God is forming through adoption is a multi-ethnic family. God is adopting people from every tongue and nation, and His […]

Our Live-Blogger: Zach Nielsen

by Dan Cruver Published Sep 25, 2009

Several months ago we asked Zach Nielsen if he would consider live-blogging Conference 2009. We asked him not only because he’s an excellent blogger but also (mainly) because he’s a gospel-centered adoption advocate.

The Prayers of God’s Children

by Dan Cruver Published Sep 22, 2009

To be adopted by God is to be in union with Christ. You can’t have one without the other. When God adopted us, He adopted us “in the Beloved” (Ephesians 1:5-6). There is nothing that is more life-changing or destiny-altering than the reality of being in union with God’s Beloved Son — and that is […]
