Dear Friends and Family,

Last week, Danny passed away after a long struggle with alcoholism. Of all the people our ministry has known, he was my best friend. I always looked forward to hearing from him, even when he’d been drinking and needed help.

When we met Danny in 2011, he and his family were living in an apartment without gas or electricity. They were basically camping. They cooked over a Sterno. They ate fish they caught in the stream behind the grocery store, and they slept on the floor beneath mounds of blankets. At one point, they even kept chickens and turtles in the apartment for entertainment and to sell to their neighbors. Their manner of living shocked us, but there was not much we could do. Their bills were thousands of dollars overdue, and we just tried to help them survive the winter.

FOCUS Conference


Three of our missionaries represented A Simple House at the SLS16 FOCUS conference in Dallas from January 1-5.  Between events, thousands of student attendees were able to talk to sponsors at their booths.  Our missionaries had a booth and were able to answer questions about Simple House and hand out books and t-shirts!
