In mid-September, Serena and Team Prusia attended the Christian Alliance for Orphans (CAFO) conference in Cincinnati, Ohio. In addition to the 1,400 attendees, another 200 joined online. Talk about a powerful first experience—being surrounded by like-minded brothers and sisters in Christ all with a shared heart to minister to the orphan.
Highlights included listening to Steven Curtis Chapman and his wife share about their adopted daughter, hearing from Brian Fikkert, co-author of When Helping Hurts, attending incredible general sessions and informative break-out sessions.
