In this episode, Jami chats with Bruce Kendrick, co-founder and Executive Director of Embrace—a ministry dedicated to helping the church reclaim the care of orphans and waiting children. Bruce is a passionate advocate for neglected and abused children and he shares his experiences with both sincerity and humor.
In this episode, you’ll discover…
- the beauty of following God’s plan instead of our own.
- how foster and orphan care influence the intersection of other issues.
- tips on how to prioritize marriage and family in the midst of ministry.
God’s got good plans and…better plans. For as much as I had in store for my life, God has revealed himself in amazing ways..he’s been faithful.
~ Bruce Kendrick
