JeffButler 2Jeff Butler
President | jbutler@m127.org

Jeff and his wife Chris are parents to eleven children, many through the blessing of adoption both domestically and from Ethiopia and China.  God has given them a heart for the fatherless and a desire to share with the church about how we all can more effectively engage in orphan prevention rather than focusing primarily on orphan care.


Morgan Craighead
Sponsor Care Specialist | mcraighead@m127.org

Morgan is responsible for sponsor care and interacts with our U.S. Sponsors on a daily basis.  She also works closely with our Ethiopia Staff to obtain family updates and monitor the progress of our Ethiopian families.  Morgan and her husband Ben have four children and have adopted from Ethiopia.

Ethan and his wife, Patty, have two children and their entire family has had the opportunity to serve in Ethiopia with Mission 1:27.
