At the BIG Event in 2012, this video took us to Uganda to answer the question: What’s in a (school) uniform? Access to education. Jobs for tailors. Dignity. “Sew” much more than meets the eye. This June, I went back to one of the sewing centers featured in the video. I saw my friend,… Read More

The Bible speaks of an on-going spiritual battle for truth and life. For those with eyes to see, it’s clear. Darkness and evil today cause real pain. News headlines and cultural trends communicate an active rejection of God and His ways. Yet, the Bible portrays God as sovereign and on offense… Read More

Everybody loves a birthday party - especially your 13th (Welcome to your teenage years!), and if it's your first fiesta de cumpleaños, then it is doubly sweet. Such was the case Monday for Weideland at Casa Amor, our partner in the Dominican Republic (DR). CONANI (DR's Child Protective… Read More

All for One

Serving with our field partners and leaders is precious. I always consider it a privilege to GO on trips and be a part of how God is using them to care for children who need family. After a few days, I get on a plane and come home. They stay in the grind, where dollars, languages, abandoned… Read More


Dramatic Contradictions

Jun 23, 2015  |  Trace T.  |  GO Haiti, GO Project, Trips  |  One Comment

by Jim Subers – Shelterwood CEO/Trip Leader Today, we were reminded of the dramatic contradiction that is Haiti. We come to Haiti, in part because we encounter Jesus here in ways we seldom do back home. On the way to church, we drove into one of the most poverty stricken areas of Port au… Read More

A friend and I recently took a drive around urban KC. If you haven't done that in awhile, you might be surprised by the number of boarded up buildings. The buildings will continue to sit and rot, reminders of times past, unless someone comes in to either level them and start over or restore what's… Read More

We went to Lira today to visit our partners and the children in their care at The Father's House. Located in a part of the country terrorized for years by LRA rebels, Lira is a difficult place, so it wasn't a total surprise in 2010 when the ministry had a difficult beginning. I had not been there… Read More

I like soccer. No, I'm not one of those Euro-wannabes who can name all the clubs in the Premier League and calls it futbol, but all three of our girls play. We love taking in a Sporting KC game (shout out to GO Project Hall of Famer/Board Member, Alan Dietrich, and his Sporting KC soccer studs),… Read More
