Did you just read that? Yes! praise GOD, as of yesterday we are fully funded. The ransom has been paid in full! A little boy in an orphanage in Eastern Europe has been ransomed by friends, family and community and will soon be pulled and rescued from a horrible, sad place. Thank you for loving our son, thank you for giving your time, money and prayers to our baby boy. I hope you see that the blessing is yours as you realize Christ used you for His glory! And when we step off the plane, I hope you see that you helped ransom a life.
When we first began this adventure over a year ago, I was petrified over the amount of money we needed to raise. We are by no means a struggling family, but we certainly did not have $34,000.00 laying around. That amount seemed insurmountable and my human mind could not fathom how we would raise the enormous price tag. And yet, we took a step of faith and little by little we saw God provide through each of you. And now my fears have been drowned in the perfect love of God and His provision.
Now I am focusing on our fight, and it is a fight that scares me. I will be completely honest in this burden I carry. You know from my past posts, that I have struggled beneath the sights, sounds and smells of the orphanage that holds my son. I carry this burden daily and I know that my heart will not be able to just pull my son and leave behind the others. Right now, I am collecting medical supplies and purchasing those that I cannot get donated. My prayer is that the director will allow me to train her staff of nurses and caregivers. The children need more advanced care and I know that my training can help alleviate some of this burden. I am also working with several contacts to try and set up networking to provide for this orphanage with future medical supplies and further training. Here’s where I need your help:
I need prayer! I am purchasing lots of medical supplies and I need you to pray that God will open the doors. Please hit your knees for these babies and pray that God will make a way. Pray for wisdom and discernment, and mostly that God will do the impossible.
God bless you all. You have no idea what your support and love has meant.
