How to Embrace God’s Call to be Fathers to the Fatherless – with Roger Cooke. S3E3

Would you consider fostering? 

Every 15 minutes, a child comes into care in the UK. What can we, as the church, do to help? We were delighted to have Roger Cooke, from Home for Good, on the Legacy Podcast. Roger provides a depth of insight which we (Stephen and Andy) found both inspiring and helpful in considering if fostering is something our families can do.
