the newest 'member' of our family

Thursday, December 23, 2010

there are roughly 143 million orphans in the world today, if only 6% of all professing Christians would care for an orphan (which God commands us to do) THERE WOULD BE NO ORPHAN CRISIS.....ALL THE ORPHANS WOULD BE TAKEN CARE OF. On Tuesday in honor of the 1 year anniversary of Grayden's Forever Day we signed up to sponsor an orphaned child through Compassion International, Have you done your part?
We have been so blessed this Christmas season and always, and it breaks my heart to know what these little children don't have. This little boy has been on my mind and in my prayers since the moment I first saw him on compassion.com. He's a part of our family now.

What a beautiful way to celebrate! Little Baraka from Uganda has been a part of our family for several months, now. We've written back and forth quite a few times now and I cherish his words. His love is big and his faith simple. He and Ty share the same birthday.

Sponsoring a child is such an incredible way to enlarge the worldview of your family!
