Over the last year, the Lord has clearly shown me that I have often failed in the way I have communicated with those who are praying for this ministry, and I want to do better. I want to communicate in a way, which

Gives you clear insight into what is going on here at FTN,

Inspires you to see how you can minister to the fatherless in your sphere of influence,

And motivates each of us to live a life that magnifies God through this work.

We love you and we appreciate your prayer, involvement and partnerships. Over the last couple of months we have seen a shift in the way Facebook displays posts from pages. We’ve also seen a shift in the way group posts are being displayed. Some people have told us that they NEVER saw the posts from this year’s Green Bean Project. This concerns me because, as you can see, it means that you are not seeing the majority of the news, prayer requests, and information we are sharing.

In light of all these things, we will be changing how we post as well as some of the content or our posts (hopefully it will be getting much better!), and we may even ask you to help us broaden our reach! We have an important message and ministry and we want to share it with as many people as possible; but no matter how much we change things for the better, if you don’t see our posts, well, then we’re just wasting our time (and God’s resources) posting it.

So here’s where we’d like to start our changes out. We are still going to be using both the Facebook page and the group, but we will now be sending out an email at the end of each week that shares some of the week’s most important Facebook posts in one digest. This will help bridge the gap between the few posts that are seen and the many that are not.

We are amazed at what the Lord has been doing over the last few months and want to share it with you. I hope you will take just a minute to sign up for the Facebook Digest at this link: (We are no longer sending out Friday Digests.)

I believe 2017 has many wonderful things, and I can’t wait to share them with you!
