The Legacy Home

God's Home for Orphan Children

Our vision for Calvary's Legacy Children's Home (The Legacy Home for short) is first to show these children the love that they should have received from birth.  They will be given an education.  They will be brought up with the morals and ethics that will grow and shape these young children in to Godly men and women.  We will be instilling a work ethic and responsibility.  It is not enough just to raise and release.  We need to raise up these children in the way that they should go and when they are old they will not depart from it. However, this is not just about the children.  As we reach into this community with the love of Christ it will give us a platform to minister the Gospel.  I have just returned from Legaspi City where we have bought a little under 2 acres of ground and are preparing to build. We are also looking at another attached 2 acres that we may purchase if the Lord should lead that way.

God has led the whole way and we are depending on him to continue to lead. Thank you so much for your interest in what God is doing in our lives. God is so faithful and he is meeting our every need. He is meeting our need through his faithful people. People that have committed to regularly praying for The Legacy Home. People that have stepped in with a one time gift. People that have pledged to give a monthly figure for a set amount of time. People who have done all of the above. My prayer is that if this letter has urged a movement of your spirit and God is telling you to be a part, that you would step out in faith, be obedient, and do what God is calling you to do. God has a purpose for each of his people and it may not be for you to sow into The Legacy Home. All that I would ask is that you would spend some time in prayer, and be obedient to His call in your heart.

God Bless You Pastor Dustin, Dawn,Dinah, and Dawson DeBoef

Eight years ago God called us to the ministry, and for the next four years, I attended Living Light Ministries' School of Ministry.  On April 2nd, 2009, I became a licensed minister in preparation for whatever God had in store.  We initially felt that we were being led to take a pastoral position, but God has since given us a new direction that we never expected.  In May of 2009, we were asked to be evangelists for a medical missions team with the Christian Light Foundation to the Philippines.  It was so unexpected but God opened every door and confirmed it in our hearts, so we went.   While there, we saw such a hunger and a move of God that it drew our hearts in a way we couldn't have foreseen.  Over 2300 people came to salvation through Jesus Christ our Lord.  The picture that remains branded on my heart is of two little boys laying on a crowded sidewalk with nowhere to go to escape the heat.  Manila is a city of eight million people and it seemed like every one of them were walking by these small children.  They couldn't have been more than five years old.  They were dirty and thin, and it seemed like no one cared; this was common in their eyes.  We wanted to stop but we were told that for every one we see, there's a thousand we don't.  Immediately, a new passion was birthed.



Religion that God our father accepts as pure and faultless is this:  to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. James 1:27

 We  saw through the eyes of Christ, an orphanage and ministry center but it seemed so far out of reach.  In my flesh I thought orphanages are started by spiritual veterans; people who have been in ministry or child care for 30 years.  I believed that this calling was for me, however, I believed that it would be in years to come. So when we returned to the US we continued seeking a church, but we were hurting every day for the Philippines.   We felt God's hand pushing us so hard, but with every church prayed about, we never felt a release.    

We started a weekly prayer meeting, seeking God's will for us.  There was such a drive in our hearts.  We had to hear from God.  On one particular Tuesday we erased the prayer request board and wrote “DIRECTION”.  We had decided to devote the whole night to seeking God's will for this calling in our heart.  I never take my phone in with me, however, on this night I forgot and half way through it started to ring.  The call was from a wonderful man of God, a staple in my life.  He said that God had woke him up that night and told him to give me $20,000 towards the opening of an orphanage/ministry center in the Philippines.

Since  that night, God's flood gates have been opened.  We've shared our vision with our home church, Calvary Church of the Quad Cities, and they  feel blessed to be our spiritual covering and have taken us on as their  first Calvary birthed missionaries.  We've joined forces with Pastor Pablito Canete, a trusted pastor through CLF, who is preparing the way for us in the Philippines.  Doors have been opened for volunteers and helpers wanting to dedicate their blood, sweat, and tears to this purpose.  But most importantly, after all the ups and downs of the last five years, we finally have a vision and the release we've searched for.
