Greetings! This has been a difficult year, and yet there are so many reasons to be grateful. We are especially thankful for you! Your courage and enthusiastic support during a dark time lifted up everyone in our orbit: the children and families we serve, the CRC and Mercy staff members, and all the people united together to care for "the least of these," as Jesus asked us to do. We hope you enjoy this newsletter, and we wish you all a blessed and joyful Thanksgiving!

We were grateful that three pastors from HCW partner churches joined the discussion about transforming the global ministry of care for orphaned and abandoned children. If you missed it, Vimeo links to the Zoom recordings for the sessions are available for viewing on our website.
