Who We Are.

Sharing in the Joy of giving life-changing gifts

OUR HIS-story

called out of our USA careers to Africa in 2000...adopted 1 orphan and 2 grandchildren...God used that heart to birth TWH's ministry in 2010, to widowed 'grannies' raising their orphaned grandchildren


Kalamazoo, MI / Traverse City, MI / Jinja, Uganda / Nasuti Village, Uganda ... but we're not HOME yet!


We believe God Himself, is the founder of The Way Home… after all, adoption and family are HIS idea!

Our Impact

Building thriving Family Foundations today & HOMES forever for distressed widows raising their orphaned grandchildren in Uganda... according to James 1:27

Our Missions.

Support people in extreme need

Our promise that your giving is doing what it’s supposed to – changing lives.

We go to the extent of meeting the actual people that the nonprofits serve. Yes, they sometimes live in remote villages, but that doesn’t stop us because we take our promise to bring you trustworthy options very seriously.

Seeking His Face…

From our isolation compounds in Uganda & USA in this unprecedented time we are inviting you to draw near (no social distancing required) to our UNEQUALED sovereign King of Kings and seek His face in humble prayer…

Farming God’s Way Garden beginning with planting stations

“When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command locusts to devour the land or send a plague among my people, if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place.”
2 Chronicles 7: 13-15

That is the prayer of The Way Home (TWH) staff in Uganda, received from our Farming God’s Way Manager, Asaph…

“We are having silent and hiding prayers. Mainly we are basing in 2 Chronicles 7:13-14. That’s our main prayer line scripture.”

As he trusts God and carries on with his job for those He cares for at The Way Home: “Just from dropping windows and doors to (a very grateful) granny Baffakuwulira Elizabeth this morning.”

The prayer of our Bookeeper, Ethel, who knows Uganda is closing doors, borders and shudders of the workplaces and schools, and believe it also Uganda is suffering from millions and millions of Locusts descending on its lands from the deserts north of Uganda. She prays: “Oh Uganda my God uphold thee. We lay thy future in God’s hands. For God and my country.”

Unexplainable..unprecedented outcomes and impact.
We’ve thought of and prayed for Uganda, it’s people and of course TWH…we invite you to persevere with us in prayer and full dependence on the Lord.

We’ve prayed for you where you are, praying you’re trusting Him absolutely. (Matthew 6:25)

Both here and there, He remains…our safe place to be. (Psalm 91:4)

In Uganda the President has restricted all he could. The borders and airport were just closed. Now it’s up to the people there to do and pray 2 Chronicles 7:13-14.
The same for us and our beloved nation the United States, it’s lands and people.

Needless to say, we are eager to be in Uganda soon, all of us are here waiting it out like all of you in your various safest ways possible. Wavering between “this is good” and “let’s get to work”.

Our boys will stay on their school terms via the computer. Our other two children, Ben and Liz and their families are too, waiting with all of us, for the day to come when life will turn from this ‘temporary normal’ back to return to the “normal” we’ve known…as the Lord wills.

On the other side of the globe, our staff also practices safe distance and sanitation while they serve others and advance the ministry of TWH. As the circumstances in our days are now with us, it is comforting to know that God is in control of all things and He’s trustworthy.

We believe He’s the best for us. It’s time to turn to God, humble ourselves, repent of our sins, listen for and look to God for His forgiveness, and believe in His conditional promise; that if we as His people will do these things, He will heal our land.

So let’s do this…Together from our knees
