There are so many things that could be said about ministry to orphans around the world. GOD has clearly laid a burden on our heart for this ministry as we are in the process of 2 somewhat complicated endeavors…
- We are in the process of adopting children from Ethiopia.
- We are in the process of starting an orphanage in Haiti that we (along with our adopted children) will build and run.
At times, this seems really crazy to comprehend because so much of our lives are up in the air. We don’t know when our children will come home, we are not sure when we are moving to Haiti (the sooner the better), and there are a lot of things that we need to take care of for both of these things to happen. But in the midst of this uncertainty is something that is very certain – GOD loves His children, and we are His children. And “If GOD is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son but gave Him up for us all, how will He not also, along with Him, graciously give us all things?” (Romans 8) There is no doubt in our mind that GOD desires for this to happen and we know that means that He will make it happen in His own way and in His own timing. It would take me hours if not days and many more pages than we have here to describe the way that GOD has brought us to this place in our lives, but He has. It is very exciting, and we hope that you will continue to pray for us and support us as we follow the calling of our Savior!
Please look for other posts in the near future that will describe this calling from GOD and how the Bible describes GOD’s heart for adoption and orphan ministry around the world.
