What would cause a married couple to become advocates for children and families? Esther McDaniel with her husband Pastor Brad have been serving families by partnering with the State of Hawaii Department of Human Services-Child Welfare Services and Family Court since 1995. They have been foster parents, pastoral advisors, involved in recruitment of foster parents, facilitation of family meetings (Ohana conferences) – standing with children and families.
Esther and Pastor Brad McDaniel are full-time missionaries with Harvest Family Life Ministries Hawaii (HFLM) providing Bible-believing, Godly homes for children who are abandoned, neglected, and abused. They are the parents of Michael (22) and Mele (20) – who both play an important role in the ministry.
