Please Pray for DFW Orphanage!
Since before we travelled to Ethiopia, our family has felt a connection to the Drawn From Water organization. Since our trip, we have been involved in raising awareness for this incredible organization. I wrote about how we have been involved here.
Now the unthinkable is happening and they need our prayers. Please read their recent blog posts. It's a little unclear of what is happening for sure but it appears like Levi and Jessie and the others who have made many sacrifices to rescue and care for the now 30 children at the orphanage may not be able to care for them anymore. This news is so disheartening and shocking.
We also sponsor a child through DFW. Her name is Kero and she is the oldest girl at the orphanage. It has been an amazing experience and privilege to support Kero over the past few months. With the current news, it sounds like we may not be able to support her anymore. This alone would be a huge loss for our family. It's all so very sad!!
Please, join me in prayer over this whole situation!
I love being a mom to my 4 beautiful children and wife to my wonderful husband. I don't write to draw attention to myself but to glorify God. What a blessing to have this opportunity to share my testimonies through this journey we call life.
"We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the vitriolic words and actions of the bad people, but for the appalling silence of the good people." --Martin Luther King JR., "Letter from Birmingham Jail"
"..and if you spend yourself in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday.
The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail." (Isaiah 58: 9 - 11)
