I've had the privilege of serving alongside Aarik Danielsen for some time as part of the Karis Church elder team. He and his wife Brooke are preparing to adopt a child from South Africa. Karis member Matt Ballou is a gifted artist and excellent art professor at Mizzou. Matt is selling one of his best works and is giving all the proceeds to help the Danielsens fund their adoption. Visit this link to learn more here. This is a great painting. We have one on our wall at home - we purchased it to help fund a previous Ballou adoption - and we love it. It would make an excellent Christmas gift - maybe even for yourself!
