Polk Association proves a "little is much when God is in it"


Fifteen years ago, Baptist Children’s Homes (BCH) challenged North Carolina Baptist churches to partner with BCH to supply children and residents with the food essential to their care. The challenge was substantial –– BCH serves 700,000 meals and snacks a year. The annual “Food Roundup” has met the needs and grows each year. It has been my privileged to work with the churches, pastors, associations, and associational missionaries in western North Carolina to reach yearly goals.As I look back, I read more

Imagine God's abundance


God’s provision in our lives is more than we can envision. Paul reminds us in his letter to the Ephesians: “Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than we ask or imagine...” May was a month filled with many blessings –– we experienced His unimaginable provision.As I was beginning to gather my thoughts to write this month’s column, a bus from Hickory Grove Baptist Church in Charlotte pulled up outside my window. I watched for a brief moment as the women stepped off the bus and then I went read more

May the joy of giving rain on you


Many mornings when I wake up, my first thought is some version of “where am I going to find the $58,000 it will take to operate Baptist Children’s Homes today?”My friends often wonder how I can thrive in an atmosphere that requires me to ask BCH supporters to contribute to its operations. They don’t understand how glad I am for the privilege of asking, and the joy I receive when supporters respond positively.And, like most people, few of my friends understand the deep running springs of joy that read more

Age doesn't deter woman from sharing love of Jesus


When the doctor shook his head saying he could not give medical approval to travel to China, Sarah Snell didn’t blink. “I’m not asking you to,” she retorted, “I just need to know about vaccines or other precautions. I am going to China.”Her physician wasn’t the only naysayer. “Friends and family just didn’t understand,” Snell explains. “When the Lord opens a door, I can’t not walk through it.”Snell departed for her sixth trip to the People’s Republic on May 9, 2017 –– her 85th birthday. Her read more

The smile on Brian Davis’s face grew wide as motorcyclists pulled out of Mills Home in Thomasville and headed west.

Bring Children Hope


Numbers can say so much: 80% of the children and families Baptist Children’s Homes (BCH) serves come to us unchurched. Last year, BCH became home to 74 groups of siblings. These precious brothers and sisters, for their safety, had to be removed from the custody of their parents or family members.In 2012, just six years ago, BCH cared for 12 sibling groups. Those numbers have risen sharply for many reasons, but opioid use in particular has gripped mothers, fathers and families. It read more

Kennedy Home Alumnus keeps strong kinship ties


Fifty-one-year-old Tim Boyd always keeps an eye out for a hurting child. The Kennedy Home alum stops suddenly while heading toward the door of OrthoCarolina in Concord where he serves as one of the clinic’s physician assistants.“Hey, buddy,” Boyd greets a boy standing with his mom. He had attended the patient earlier and was surprised to see they had not left. The boy’s stressed look puts everything else on hold. “Can I help you?”“It’s this new brace,” he tells Boyd. “It doesn’t feel right.” The read more

Mmm, mmm goodness!


Mom’s Saturday biscuits were worth waking up early to enjoy. When we visited as newlyweds, Kathy would rise to help her. The two stood at the kitchen island, Mom on one side with her mother’s old crockery bowl in front of her, ingredients in glass canisters set in a neat semicircle, and Kathy positioned opposite facing the window.Mom chatted about everything: the early spring, trips to Forest Hill’s plant nurseries, Aunt Dale’s garden –– whatever popped into her thoughts. Kathy smiled and read more
