"This is how grace works; it enters the soul, penetrates the heart, saturates the conscience, abides in the memory, affects the affections, gives understanding to the understanding, and imparts real life to the heart, which is the seat of life." Spurgeon

We left house in 2 black suburbans filled with 12 checked 50# bags, 6 backpacks, 6 wheeled carry ons, 3 purses, 150 bibles, 150 bottles of neosporin, 1 guitar, 4 cameras, 1 iPad, 4 nanos, 3 iPhones, 12 travel games, travel snacks for 2 weeks on africa, 4 happy and excited kids and 2 adults geared up for whatever comes next.


  1. Hello Gruver Family! We are so excited for you all to experience the mercies and grace of our GREAT GOD as you reach out to the hearts of the orphans and others you encounter in Africa and beyond. May God give you peace knowing all things and lifestyles works for our good and reveals His glory even when we don't see the ripple effects of it. We are praying for a spiritual awakening among the many people you encounter and speak truth to. God will give you every word to say as you seek Him and fix your eyes on Him and all the creative ways He displays His love and mercy to the less fortunate. May your hearts change forever into saints willing to do whatever it takes to honor God. We love you all so much and cannot wait to hear how the Lord works thru you and in your hearts as you proclaim the truth to so many lost souls that would not otherwise hear of God's love for them.

  2. I am so sorry we missed you at church! I miss you guys already!
