What We’re Thankful for

From the entire Boaz team: Happy Thanksgiving! 

Life has been heavy for most of 2020, so I thought it would be fun to focus on some positives. In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I asked our team what they’re thankful for this year. Here are the responses:

Family and cold brew.
– David, Director of Russia Ministries

My connection to friends and family.
-Liz, Steward of Donor Relations

Time to focus on what’s important (rather than just being busy) and that prayer is not limited by social distancing!
-Jill, Bookkeeper

The beauty in the changing colors of Fall.
-Jim, Managing Director

My dog. I mean, she gets me!
-April, Executive Director

Friends of all ages who care for me and speak truth into my life.
-Michaela, Director of India Ministries

Zoom, so I can keep in touch with friends and family who are far away…and dessert that makes each day a little sweeter!
-Cathy, Project Manager

My relationship with my sister, Caity. I’ve been missing a lot of friends as I transition to life after college, and she has become a deeper source of friendship and encouragement. It’s amazing to see God working in her life and our relationship.
-Courtney, Director of Kenya Ministries

Our entire staff is incredibly thankful for all of you who show Christ’s love to orphans, especially those of you who take the time to pray for them. 

Sincerely, thank you.

As we pray for orphans this month, let’s focus on giving thanks for all God has done…even in the midst of a global pandemic. Thank God that:

  1. our children and their house parents remain healthy!
  2. generous donors like you have responded to every single Covid-related request our homes have made, from technology for distance learning to increased grocery costs.
  3. He’s still in control!
  4. for the resources He’ll provide through Breakfast with Boaz on Nov. 5th.

I hope November will offer you opportunities to rest and recharge with your family and loved ones. We all need to take in the blessings around us (and, just maybe, an extra slice of pie!)

Believing in miracles,

April Jurgensen
Founder/Executive Director
The Boaz Project, Inc.

Because God knew that abandoned children would need help to survive, He tells us to actively meet the needs of orphans in James 1:27.

If you also feel the weight of this responsibility and the desire to make a real difference, consider partnering with us. Through our innovative in-home care model, specialized caregiver training, and humanitarian aid, you’ll help children not just survive—but truly thrive.

When you choose to partner with The Boaz Project, you'll restore hope, ensure a brighter future through education, and share the love of Jesus with children who desperately need it.

Just imagine the impact you can have—from saving a child from the horrors of the streets to helping them become community leaders, educators, and nurturers of the next generation.
