The Agape House Children's Home is excited to welcome Mr. Richard and Mrs. Sue Murphy as our new Full-Time House Parents of the Alexander House!! As the House Parents, they will be responsible for the direct supervision, care and nurturing of our ministry's children.
The Murphys come to Agape House from Compact Family Services in Hot Springs. Richard is a retired firemen. He served with the El Dorado Fire Department for 26.5 years. Sue has served in Children's Ministry for 35 years and has been a Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) volunteer for several years. With her personal experience of aging-out of the foster care system, Sue is very passionate about advocating for children.
In fact, both Mr. and Mrs. Murphy have a heart for God's children! One of their theme scriptures is: "But Jesus said, "Let the children come to me. Don't stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children." - Matthew 19:14
The couple has been married for over 35 years. They have three children: Richard Murphy and his wife Katie have 2 daughters, Will Murphy and his wife Sheryl have 3 sons and a daughter, and Amy Fulco and her husband Brandon have 2 sons.
