What began as a simple conversation has turned into a new ministry partnership, as God is allowing us to join with a church on the other side of the planet to help care for children being rescued from homelessness and abuse.
join us as we unite with people all over the world and strive to worship fully (in literally everything we do this Christmas), spend less (buy at least one less present), give more (give gifts that have meaning and really show them how we feel... like letters, quality time, homemade stuff, etc.), and love all (give to our special offering that goes to dig wells all over the world in an effort to solve the global clean water crisis) this Christmas
used for your sake: God's glory shining through the ballards' life

the lost sheep: an autobiographical allegory
"the Shepherd... calls the sheep by name... He goes on ahead of them, and the sheep follow Him because they know His voice... i am the Good Shepherd. the Good Shepherd lays down His life for the sheep... i am the Good Shepherd; i know my sheep and my sheep know me—just as the Father knows me and i know the Father—and i lay down my life for the sheep." John 10:2-4, 11, 15, 16
