Family Legacy has changed our family. We have been impacted far more than those we love on in Zambia. We are ambassadors for 61 children who we have fallen in love with through the Camp Life ministry of Family Legacy. We love them as our own. Many dear friends and relatives have come along side of us to help sponsor them to provide an education which is the only way to break their cycle of poverty. This was a "once in a lifetime trip" that has become part of our mission - to go and disciple and love on the children who have no one. To see their childlike faith accept Jesus and their Lord and Savior and then to go share their faith in their community is a beautiful day! The light, joy and love that comes from the least of these is greater than anything I have seen. The have changed not only my heart, but my teenage children's hearts too. They have something greater than themselves to live for and serve - serving Jesus to these children and then being his witness to their friends here. Our favorite place on earth is the Tree of Life Children's Village where the children in the worst circumstances live. To spend time with them is a blessing that cannot be measured. Another excellence aspect of Family Legacy is the staff. Every staff member must raise their own support. This allows the ministry to give 95% of every dollar to the children. This model attracts and retains the most amazing people that not only love serving the orphans but LOVE JESUS with all of their heart! They rely on God to supply all of their needs. My family has witnessed God work miracles over and over again through this ministry. We are the ordinary family, willing unwilling servants, that finally submitted to go. We are the ones blessed.
