Why am I writing this blog?

In coming to know orphans, I have come to know God in a whole new way. By obeying his Word and stepping out to bless the fatherless, God’s Word has come alive and I have been the one most blessed. It is my desire to share those scriptural truths that God has revealed to me experientially while working in the fields of the fatherless. Through many different people and circumstances in my life, God has gently invited and led me deep into His amazing joy of caring for orphans, and I pray that I might encourage and edify His body in the same way many others have done for me.

Blessings to you,
Kerry Hasenbalg
