Needed to take time out from our own fundraising to ask for prayers and help for another family. The Jenks family are in the process of adopting two sweet little ones from EE. They are much closer to their travel date, which is a wonderful thing, but they still are not fully funded. Please head over to http://becauseyouareloved.blogspot.com and see if there is anything you can do to help them out. I know they would appreciate all prayers and financial support. You can also find their story at Reece's Rainbow to make a tax deductible donation.
When we first started the adoption process, I was not very familiar with it, but I knew great things were being done, in particular with some friends of mine and their blogs. They raised so much money for Bernadette in such a short amount of time. The actuality of it, for us, was overwhelming. We have received blog comments and emails from all over the U.S, Canada, and just this morning a very special one from the U.K. People we haven't met, and probably never will meet here on this earth, are coming together to help. People taking to heart God's message to help each other, care for orphans, and living a life of service to others. You all are a great example to me, and one that I am trying to emulate. We can talk all we want about how we love God, what's right or wrong with churches and Christians, but what matters is what we DO. And people are doing it!
