Hey TD!

We’re so excited to announce that Emily Chapman Richards and Shaoey Chapman will be with us LIVE at Virtual TD tomorrow night!  Since they are in Tennessee, we will start TD a little earlier – at 7:45 p.m. – and we will be moving to Zoom to hold our meeting.  So, please ask your small group leader for the link; you’ll also need to download Zoom onto your computer or phone.

We’ll also announce the total amount of money raised for V4V!

Emily and Shaoey are daughters to 5-time Grammy Award winner/58 Dove Award winner, Steven Curtis Chapman, and New York Times Bestseller, Mary Beth Chapman, founders of Show Hope.

It was Emily, who, as a young teenager, believed that God was calling her family to adopt (even though they had 3 biological kids already), and persistently told her parents so.  Eventually, the message got through to them, leading them to adopt Shaohannah (Shaoey) from China, for whom Show Hope was named after.  They then adopted two more girls from China, Stevey Joy and Maria.

Emily now serves as the Executive Director of Show Hope and has appeared on numerous TV shows and radio programs across the country.  Shaoey is a student at the University of Alabama.

See you at TD!

A Great Time at the SCC Solo Tour! What Next?

TD @ SCC Solo Tour Concert at The Wiltern – 4/12/19

SCC Concert at the Hsiehs’ for Show Hope

Hey TD!

What an amazing time together at the Steven Curtis Chapman Solo Tour at the Wiltern!  Thank you, Show Hope!  Our family is so glad you got to hear his heart, his story, his ministry, and his music (and his ridiculous guitar skills!).

As I always say, when you have a chance to be around greatness, seize it.  Though many of you had never heard of him (though he’s had over 50 #1 hits, has over 70 Dove Awards, 5 Grammy Awards, etc.), you were willing to see the big picture and be open to new experiences and opportunities. Many of you expressed how unexpectedly blessed you were.

As SCC was sharing about his family’s own adoption journey and the work at Show Hope, like many of you, I had tears in my eyes.  Helping kids that don’t have families is a work that God wants us, His church, to be involved in.  At TD, we have done that through Voiceless For the Voiceless (V4V), visiting the orphanage each month, serving at summer camps for orphans in China, and with our monthly sponsorships of 4 boys in Africa (through Rafiki) and 3 Show Hope sponsorships in China (many of you are behind in your pledges.  Please bring them up to date).

Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world. – James 1:27

Please seriously pray through how God wants to use you to help reach kids without families.  It’s not whether He wants you to help (He does); rather, it’s how He wants you to help.  Please talk with your small group leaders to discuss the opportunities!
