Christian Family Day at
By Jim Day
What does the smiling face of a child, a concert
by NewSong, and a hotdog at a Cardinal baseball game have in common?
Try the 19th Annual Christian Family Day (CFD) at Busch Stadium
on June 27th! “NewSong’s music is so inspiring and upbeat in
its message. They put on
an awesome praise and worship concert”, said Judy Boen, Chairman
& Founder of CFD. “We’re
very excited to once again have Evangelist Tony Nolan as our featured
speaker. His story of abuse as a child and how God healed his
heart through his faith in Jesus is incredible!” continued Boen.
The event takes place behind the Cardinal’s
dugout after the 12:10 p.m. inter-league game against the Minnesota
Twins on June 27th. Cardinal and Twins players will share their
Christian testimonies; and the Christian musical group NewSong
will lead everyone in praise and worship. Aeneas Williams, former
St. Louis Rams, and his wife Tracy will be this year’s Honorary
Chairmen and KTRS AM 550’s McGraw Milhaven will serve as the day’s
Master of Ceremonies for the post game event.
Sean Glanvill, of Wildwood, Missouri is the
2009 Poster Child Christian Family Day.
Sean suffered a brain injury as the result of a car accident
in May 2007. He was given
only a one-percent chance of survival.
Sean fought back and his family and friends never gave
up hope, praying endlessly for his recovery.
His recovery is a true miracle and testimony of the power
of God. “The Glanvill’s
are patients of mine” said, Dr. Christe Boen Mirikitani D.C.,
“I watched as tragedy struck this Godly family.
Their response to the accident and their faith in God really
touched me. I hope that
I could trust God that way if something like that happened to
The theme for this years’ Christian Family
Day is following the fact that the All-Star Game will be held
in St. Louis this summer. We
as Christians are all ‘stars’ for Jesus and therefore our 2009
theme is “Shine For Jesus.” Lisa
Frank and Buz Phelan came up with the theme and Jason Mirikitani
came up with the verse Philippians
2:15-16. Buz Phelan, of Phelan Designs, pulled it all
together with his design for the brochure and tee-shirts. “We are so blessed to have such a creative committee.
I’m just in awe of their talent and how God continues to
put our event together each year,” said Judy.
Wait No More to St. Louis
Joe, who is a fictional child but represents hundreds of
children just like him, lives in his sixth home in three years.
He keeps a bag of his favorite
things packed at all times. At 9-years-old, Joe wakes up every morning not
knowing if he’ll be moved that day to a new and strange environment. Joe is in foster care. His parents are addicted to drugs and not able
to provide him a safe family home.
Their parental rights have been terminated, so that Joe
will have a chance at a safe and happy life.
Joe spent the first years of his life left alone in a crib—dirty
and hungry. He grew unable to trust or connect with anyone
around him. He was on his
own. As he grew older, he was developmentally delayed
and struggled in school. No
one seems to stay in his life for very long.
Joe thinks it is all his fault.
He is alone. He
is scared, and sometimes, he is really mad.
He has no permanent parents.
He doesn’t know what is going to happen to him.
Joe needs an adoptive family.
More than 1,400
children and youth in Missouri’s foster care system are just like
Joe. Some are older, all
have unique needs and challenges and all are currently waiting
for adoptive families to call their own.
They are America’s modern day orphans.
The Bible says “religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to
look after widows and orphans in their distress and keep oneself
from being polluted by the world.” (James
So, who will come
for Joe and the others like him?
How long will they continue to wait?
With 8,000 churches
in Missouri, Focus on the Family believes Joe and those like him
should wait no longer. “God is a Father to the fatherless and He sets
the lonely in families.” (Psalms
68) Focus believes Christians
have a scriptural mandate to care for children just like Joe,
and they are taking action in states across the nation.
