Pastor Ronnie Stewart and his wife Krystal run the Refuge Church in Pasco County, Florida. The couple had three children of their own and were living the life they always imagined they would be. But the funny thing about life is, it never really goes the way you plan. Ronnie and Krystal discovered that firsthand when they found themselves face to face with two children in need.
The two children turned out to be brothers, and they were discovered outside of Ronnie’s church. The pastor recognized the boys as children that stopped by his homeless ministry. So, he decided to bring the boys back to his home and welcomed them as one of his own while giving them a warm bath and a good meal. When Krystal was cleaning the children, she noticed just how bad of shape they were in. The boys were covered in bug bites and were losing skin on their feet.
But the story doesn’t end there. At church the next Sunday, the parents of the brothers found Pastor Ronnie and his wife and asked if they could adopt their children full-time. Needless to say, Ronnie and Krystal were stunned, but their faith and sense of duty made them realize the choice they had to make. As Krystal says, “We are absolutely positive that God has placed them in our lives for a purpose and to love them as our own.” The new family of five is looking forward to all of the joys their life together will bring.
