We were thrilled to have Arkansas Governor Hutchinson along with State Senator Missy Irvin, Heber Springs Mayor Jimmy Clark, Cleburne County Judge Jerry Holmes meet with DCFS and The CALL team in Cleburne County to see first hand the incredible work that is going on in our area. Governor Hutchinson heard about recruiting, training and supporting local foster and adoptive families, ministering to biological families, serving our local partners at DCFS and about building lasting relationships with teens through our mentoring program. This is what being the hands and feet of Jesus is all about and we were so honored to have these incredible people come and listen to our praises and concerns. Thank you Governor Hutchinson for your support and dedication to the children in Arkansas.


Thank you to Angie Mix owner of Angie’s Hideaway restaurant in Heber Springs for donating gift certificates to each of our foster parents for a special valentines dinner!!


It was amazing to see so many gathered to intercede in prayer on behalf of children in foster care and those waiting for a forever home. Thank you to those that took the time last night to commit to being a voice for these children. Our work is nothing unless prayer is our foundation. We are grateful to be in a county that supports foster care and that we were able to hold our Prayer Vigil on the lawn of the courthouse. Thank you to our leadership team who worked hard preparing this event. Thank you to Shane Parish, Andrea Riggs, and Taylor Tubbs for providing worship music. Thank you Cleburne County Judge Jerry Holmes for being bold and sharing his testimony with us. Thank you to new Cleburne County Coordinator, Amanda Bush for her powerful speech given. Thank you to Pastor Brad Johnson for reading scripture and leading us in guided prayer. Lastly, thank you again to City Gate Church for letting us set up the Heart Gallery so everyone was able to take a look at the photographs of children waiting for their forever home in Arkansas. This was a powerful evening and we know that God hears the cries of His people. Please continue to lift up children in foster care in prayer as well as every person involved in their lives.
“The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and His ears are open to their cry.” Psalm 34:15


Christie Erwin with Project Zero paid a visit to Cleburne County to join with The CALL on our monthly radio spot on 101.9 The Lake to announce that the Project Zero Heart Gallery is on tour in Cleburne County!! We would love for everyone to get a chance to see it in person. You will be changed. You see, every face on this Gallery is a real child with a real story in need of a forever family. These aren’t stock photos in a magazine or on a website. These are children throughout our state that do not have the ability to return to their family or origin due to no fault of their own. Visit    for more information. If adopting is right for you, attend The CALL in Cleburne County’s next info meeting April 17 at Sugarloaf Baptist in Heber Springs.
