Looking Back on 2014 with Mary Beth and Steven Curtis Chapman

Dear Friends,

I can’t believe all that God has done and continues to do through the efforts of the Show Hope team…and that includes you! Steven and I are so thankful that you are a part of this team that God has built and is building to restore the hope of a family to orphans in distress.

Looking back on 2014 with Mary Beth and Steven Curtis Chapman!It never ceases to amaze me when I hear stories of the lives that have been changed forever through the work of Show Hope and its donors. I remember walking through Disney World almost ten years ago when a very elated family stopped us to introduce their precious little girl, who Show Hope had helped bring home through an Adoption Aid grant. Recently, a family with tears in their eyes told me that if it wasn’t for the work of Maria’s Big House of Hope, their child would not have survived to come into the love of a family. Students and adults are going on trips where their hearts are stretched and shaped, and adoptive parents nationwide are receiving hope through the Empowered to Connect conferences. I know that these stories comprise merely a fraction of the thousands of lives that have been transformed.

We are humbled and amazed at what God is accomplishing through this “team” of Show Hopers (meaning each one of you). Every day, God is faithfully using us as his body, and children’s lives are being transformed. Thank you for listening to the need and considering where you fit into the Kingdom work of caring for orphans.

Through your support, Show Hope has been able to:

  • Care for more than 1,600 orphans with special needs at our Care Centers in China
  • Bring more than 4,500 children home to their forever families
  • Mobilize more than 15,000 students across America to care for orphans
  • Bring hope and healing to more than 13,500 children through our Empowered to Connect conferences

We appreciate you, love you, and pray that wherever you are on your own journey, God meets you there and whispers his truth to the deepest part of your heart. For we are all former orphans on our own journey, and by God’s amazing grace, we have a home.

With love for the fatherless,

Mary Beth and Steven Curtis Chapman
