“And whoever welcomes a child like this in my name welcomes me.” Matthew 18:5
Lighthouse Family Network was conceived in the heart of Leona Lambert in 1969 when she and her husband, Lamar, opened their home and family to a five year old boy whose mother was unable to care for him. Through their efforts, literally hundreds of children have been served and their lives have been changed.
This was the humble beginning of a long journey of great sacrifice that has touched the lives of untold numbers of children. Leona and Lamar were convinced that with each child was an opportunity to show God’s love and for one more chance to get it right. They believed that all children deserve a chance and dedicated their lives to that purpose.
