Abundant Life: Engaging the Local Church to Support Adoption

September 30, 2022

What if in the post Roe v. Wade era, every pre-born and newborn baby was ensured a loving home? On today’s edition of Family Talk, our own Dr. Tim Clinton visits with two leaders committed to that dream. Zeke Bambolo and Beth Burns could not come from more diverse backgrounds. Beth ministers to churches to encourage and mobilize them to advocate for the sanctity of all human life through the non-profit organization, Abundant Life, while Zeke works beside her pairing babies to their forever home with Antioch Adoptions.
