Joey & Sarah Mrus

July 29, 2023 | Odessa, MO

From the time Sarah was young she felt called by the Lord that one day she would adopt. Joseph was adopted when he was a child and always wanted to pay that blessing forward. We were married on November 27th, 2004, and as a military family our constant moves made adoption difficult. Although we have been blessed with two biological children, we knew we would adopt once Joseph was honorably discharged from the military. We have been officially on our adoption journey since June of 2020. We are excited to see how the Lord continues to move in our lives through this process of growing our family, and to provide a loving home to our new daughter. Thank you for joining us in serving our Lord Jesus!

Ms. Della

Widow | Missouri

Ms. Della lost her husband Bill of 50 years October 6, 2017. She was Bill's full-time caregiver for the last 10 years of his life before he was called home. She is a proud mother and grandmother and dedicated to her family. After caring for Bill and taking care of her own healthcare needs, her home is in great need of TLC from the inside out. An enormous weight will be lifted for Ms. Della while we provide maintenance repairs, upkeep, painting, and other major projects to better the condition of her home.
