I remember thinking when we decided to attend CAFO, “This would be a great opportunity to learn how to care for vulnerable children as it relates to the ministry my wife feels called to lead.” I also remember thinking, “This would be a great place to meet new people, and make connections that would benefit said ministry.” What happened, as it always does, God laughed at my plans then showed me his plan. We learned some things, yes! We made some connections, yes! But more than that, God completely broke my heart for the orphans of our world. 

I believe if we love what God loves, and want what he wants, then attending a CAFO conference will help us do this, and do it well.

CAFO2021 was a powerful time of reflection for myself and the Yellow Door House. I was reminded of the reasons why we enter into relationships with families and children in order to love like Jesus.

It was so impactful to be around like-minded individuals who are doing the work of serving vulnerable children, getting to hear their unique ideas and what has worked in their context.

I have been serving in Child Welfare for over twenty years, yet while attending the CAFO conference God still provided fresh insight for my heart and mind regarding those of us that He has inspired to respond to what is described in Psalm 10:14: 

‘But you, God, see the trouble of the afflicted. You consider their grief and take it in hand. The victims commit themselves to you; you are the helper of the fatherless.’
