We have a vision of the body of Christ rising up to glorify their Heavenly Father and reflect His merciful heart by extending this gift to orphans through adoption. We see the fatherless discovering their identities in Christ through finding love in family. Will you take this journey with us, sowing into a life for a bountiful harvest? Please help us tend this garden and revive the brokenhearted with the love of Jesus.

Priceless Heart - An Urgent Plea for Three
Thank you so much for spreading the word and
sharing the need for the Higbie family. I think collectively we are ALL
truly moved by watching what love does. The
final count for the gifts that have come in to Grace Haven is $8,510.
Between that and some gifts that came in for them at Project Hopeful and
Orphan Justice Center today, a total of $22,290 has been raised in two
days. The amazing thing is this extra money should cover plane tickets
to come back home!! I was able to speak with Bob and Diane today and
they are humbled and want each of you to know they will be sharing their
adoption journey and invite you to follow them in Ukraine on their
blog. They want everyone to share in this testimony of what God is
The winner of the diamond necklace is Sheila Wray of Texas and the winner of the $200 Walmart gift card is Sybille Vought of Michigan!!
My tender friends who have cried out to heaven for orphans for several years are now about to embark on an incredible journey to bring three hearts home. Nadiya 17, Oksana 16 and her brother Vasyl 14, all at the deadline for being able to get adopted, are eagerly waiting to come home!
Yes, you heard me. They have already spent time in Bob and Diane Higbie's home through hosting and have told the Higbie's that they wish to live with them and call them family! And this is what makes this more dire than ever. These children's hopes and future are on the line.
Bob and Diane are in need of raising $6500 by THIS SATURDAY in order to have the funds wired in time. THIS IS URGENT FRIENDS!!!
Lillian in arms, Bob (Papa), Vasyl in blue, Oksana in yellow and April light blue
And precious Nadiya with Diane (Mama)
They didn't just meet hope when they came to stay with Bob and Diane... they met love. They met up with a real touch from Jesus and they long to be back here soon to run on the farm, play nerf gun tag, snuggle with their siblings and BE family that will support them as God leads them into incredible journeys with Him!
A GENEROUS, LOVELY and perfectly APPROPRIATE offering has been given by an anonymous donor to HELP MAKE THIS HAPPEN!!
This diamond covered heart necklace with gold clasp has a retail value of $500
From now until the end of day Friday, August 30th we will be accepting raffle entries to win this beautiful necklace to help bring THREE PRICELESS JEWELS HOME!!
For every $25 donated, you will receive 10 ticket entries!
The Higbies are in need of a total $15,000 to complete the entire adoption but $6,500 is needed immediately so please repost, share, pray and bless Nadiya, Oksana and Vasyl!
When you donate through paypal, please note "Higbie" in the comment section
16 This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters.17 If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person?18 Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth. 1 John 3:16-18
