Bishop W.C. Martin Returns to the Capital District in November!

Justice For Orphans is pleased to announce that we will be bringing Bishop W.C. Martin of Possum Trot, TX, back to the Capital Region for 2 events in November!  Bishop Martin is author of Small Town, Big Miracle published by Focus on the Family.  He and his wife, Donna, adopted 4 children out of the foster care system in Texas.  The Lord used their example as a catalyst to move other members of the Martins’ church, Bennett Chapel, to also adopt.  To date over 70 kids have been adopted into families in Possum Trot – transforming the lives of the children, the church, and the community.
