Abundant Blessings Slide

We are a Christian ministry seeking to create a satellite of support around foster and adopted children and their families. We now serve additional children in need in the Nixa and Ozark school districts.

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress
and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. 
James 1:27
