Program, prayers put kids’ 2 dads together

A dad is reconnected with his 2 daughters. It’s a story that involves foster care, termination of parental rights, adoption, lots of prayer, incredible timing, and lots of God at work. And it made the front page of the Arkansas Democrat Gazette on Sunday 5/18/2014. Read article here (subscription required).

As Paul Harvey used to say, here’s the rest of the story. In this video clip, Clay Warnock tells the story of how he and his wife Becky first took in 3 sisters in foster care and eventually adopted them. Then as Clay was involved in prison ministry, by absolutely divine timing, he happened to meet the father of 2 of the girls. A connection was made and a step towards fulfilling Malachi 4:6: He will turn the hearts of the parents to their children, and the hearts of the children to their parents.

Clay happens to be a state board member of The CALL and was instrumental in bringing The CALL to Crawford and Sebastian Counties.
