September 2020 Update


ATK International used our $10,000 grant to build a dormitory for girls who are attending their high school.  Thirty girls are now able to stay in a safe environment while they attend school.  These girls are getting more rest because they’re not walking so far to get to and from school, they have light to study by in the evenings, they have access to bathing and better hygiene, and they are doing better in school.  We are honored to be able to support this incredible opportunity to help these 30 girls (and hundreds of girls to come!) have a safe, healthy environment that improves their education!


  • We supported Heart for Lebanon – which is providing holistic care for Syrian refugee families in Lebanon.  They help meet families’ basic needs in the refugee camps, educate the children who aren’t able to attend formal school, and provide families with spiritual lifelines to help them move from surviving to thriving in life.  Lives are changing everyday because of H4L’s important work and we’re grateful to be supporting them again for a second year.
  • We added the Big Island of Hawaii to our geographic focus areas because several members of the Jernigan family are now living there.
  • We are hoping to do some family service projects over the coming year in the areas where we live and have made grants.


In the spring, we made a grant to United Way of Thurston County to help meet the needs across the community due to the COVID pandemic.  UWTC did an incredible job leveraging funds from many sources to support community partners across the county.  Families in need were able to get food, eviction assistance, utilities help, and other basic needs met.  Thank you UWTC!

June 2020 Update


Heart for Lebanon used our $10,000 grant to provide
schooling and biblical character development for 300
Syrian refugee children who are living in Lebanon.


This quarter we got to support some great organizations across the globe and in our own backyard.  It is a privilege to stand beside these partners who are changing the world – one life at a time.

  • She is Safe is empowering women in India to engage in entrepreneurial and savings groups to keep them from getting lured into human trafficking situations.
  • Black Girls Code is teaching young black girls the skills they need to enter the tech sector.
  • Street Business School is training anti-trafficking organizations on their model so those organizations can help women start businesses as part of their recovery from human trafficking.
  • Strategic Alliance to Fight Exploitation (SAFE) is meeting increased needs of trafficking victims and survivors in WA state during the pandemic.
  • International School Project is training teachers to build moral and ethical character in their students based on the teachings of the Bible.


We are delighted to partner with Rescue:Freedom during the pandemic.  They are taking advantage of this time when brothels and red light districts are shut down overseas due to COVID-19 to get women and girls out of the horrific life of commercial sexual exploitation.
