Something New for the Old

Aug 26, 2014  |  Trace T.  |  GO Haiti, GO Project, Trips  |  No Comments

Widows and Orphans is a phrase found often in the Bible. Full of life's wisdom, our elders deserve our respect. Full of promise, orphans require parenting. Both need the care and love of family. Both are close to the heart of God. In a day full of blessing, I won't forget my first meeting with… Read More

Something to Celebrate

Aug 25, 2014  |  Trace T.  |  GO Haiti, GO Project, Trips  |  No Comments

People like to celebrate. We celebrate weddings and births, graduations and promotions. This time of year, we prepare to celebrate touchdowns. At the end of the year, we celebrate the beginning of a new year. I'm a fan of celebrating. In fact, I think we should celebrate more. If we did, what… Read More

CONANI Approval Letter

A Good Government Letter

Aug 15, 2014  |  Trace T.  |  GO Haiti, GO Project  |  No Comments

“I’m from the IRS, and I’m here to help” has served as the punchline to many an old joke. In truth, few of us have ever celebrated government correspondence, but at GO Project this week, that’s exactly what happened. This letter from CONANI, the Child Protective Services division of… Read More

A Church that Stands for Children

A Church that Stands for Children

Jul 24, 2014  |  Trace T.  |  GO India, GO Project  |  No Comments

This week Jake and I had the opportunity to worship with our brothers and sisters at Bethel Gospel Church (BGC) in India. Almost 30 years ago, Pastor Sudakhar planted BGC in the slums of Amberpet. In a country where there are 3x more orphans than Christian (yes, you read that right), BGC is all… Read More

"The Spicy Fish Blues"

The last few days we've been sharing a little of what God is doing to care for His kids in the orphan window, but that's not all that we've learned during our time in India. Trace, Jake, and Paul (GO India) share an important cultural lesson in this world premier video of "The Spicy Fish… Read More

The Pastor's Posse at Sarampet

Jul 22, 2014  |  Trace T.  |  GO India, GO Project  |  5 Comments

Long after the city skyline and street lights disappear, follow the one lane road for an hour or two to the Father's House at Sarampet. You'll be glad you did. You may be greeted with children singing and Indian flowers. A posse of teenage boys may give you a tour of their farm… Read More

Pastor Gopi

Shining in the Slums

Jul 22, 2014  |  Trace T.  |  GO India, GO Project  |  11 Comments

In 2006, a faithful, small group leader at Bethel Gospel church, gave his life to pastoring people. Pastor Gopi's first assignment was to plant a church at NTR Nagar on the outskirts of Hyderabad. Coming from the urban core, life at NTR Nagar was slow at first, which makes sense because very… Read More

Thank God for Normal Problems

Two days ago, a United Airlines agent in Kansas City welcomed Jake Barreth and me to the airport with, "Hi, are you all on the cancelled flight to New Jersey?" Seemed like a trick question, or at least a tricky question. Either way, it's not how we hoped to start our trip to India. Close to 40… Read More

What is one child worth?

This week we received some pictures from Pastor Altagracias, our partner in the Dominican. The first showed a boy pulling a suitcase. His name is Carlito.  Though we don’t know much of his story, we have been praying for him. On the other side of the metal gate was a family, his… Read More

Pastor Retreat 2014

Pouring into Pastors

May 29, 2014  |  Trace T.  |  GO Haiti, GO Project  |  One Comment

At GO Project, we are not pastors, but we really love them! We consider it a privilege to partner with them. Pastors serve as father figures to the children in their orphan care ministry. Along with all the other demands on their time, we appreciate how difficult their job is. Alarming burnout… Read More
