Surgery Fundraiser for Chrispine

Chrispine is a 16 year old native of Zambia with a heart calcification defect that has stunted his growth and now threatens his life. Jefferson Park Baptist in Charlottesville is working to arrange for a surgeon, coordinate his travel, and cover his surgical costs so he can get the surgery he needs, in time. Chrispine wants to finish his education and become a teacher in his home town, however without this surgery he won’t survive. We're short on time, so please help us make this happen for Chrispine by praying, sharing in any way possible and donating.

our hearts are home

If you are traveling the journey of life after the death of a child, we invite you to join us for one of the upcoming gatherings. We hope that you will be encouraged as you connect with others who are traveling the same journey, learn from each other, discover helpful resources, and experience the comfort that Jesus gives.

 

We will share a meal together and discuss topics unique to losing a child. All of us have children who are no longer here, although they left us in different ways. Our guides for the gatherings are couples who have lost children to accidents, depression and suicide, and other illnesses.

 

As the world continues to move on around us, we as grieving parents find ourselves still grieving, even years after our children are gone. We hope you’ll join us for a beautiful time of remembering our children and finding community with other parents who understand this journey.

 

If you live near an upcoming gathering, we hope you’ll take time to come. We look forward to knowing you.

 

(There is no cost to attend.)
