Inside The FREEDOM Project: Spirit & Truth

Editor's Note: Jake Hull is an integral piece of the team that is producing The FREEDOM Project along with Orphan's Promise. His background and education are in world music, and he brings a unique set of skills to the table. He accompanied our team to Kenya and was impacted deeply by the children he met there. These are his thoughts. 

What struck me first about the children in Kenya, was the impeccable sense of musicianship they had.

Through The Viewfinder: A First-Person Account of Africa, Day 8

Today we took one last trip out to Village of Hope. I stepped out of the van and immediately felt two little arms around my waist. It was one of the twin girls - Paulina. It's our fifth time here and I can tell the girls apart now... Paula wears earrings, Paulina does not. Paulina has a slimmer face and is more outgoing.

Through The Viewfinder: A First-Person Account Of Africa, Day 5

I dipped my hand in orange paint today and pressed it onto a concrete wall in Ghana.

It was part of the celebration as we dedicated Village of Hope, a housing project started by Project Nyame Nsa and supported by Orphan’s Promise. The name, “Nyame Nsa” means the “God's Helping Hand”… quite appropriate as the children and adults joined in decorating the wall with orange handprints.

Editor's Note: In the coming days, OP Sr. Producer Shirl Catindig will be sharing her experiences in Africa, giving us a glimpse into the incredible work that God is doing through Orphan's Promise and our donors. Be sure to follow along for these 'behind-the-scenes' thoughts and stories from Shirl!

Today my videographer and I got our first look at a brand new project Orphan’s Promise will be dedicating in a few days: Project Nyame NSA’s Village of Hope in Ghana, Africa.

It's A New Day In Vietnam

In 1970 I began wearing a POW/MIA bracelet for Major Ted Gostas, who was being held captive in a North Vietnamese prison.  When you agreed to purchase and wear a POW/MIA bracelet, the commitment was that you would agree never to take it off until the soldier whose name you wore was either released or declared officially deceased.  That war in Vietnam was a painful, divisive event in our country’s history.  The aftermath of this war left a trail of bitterness for years to come.
