I began reading a new book today, Fields of the Fatherless by Tom Davis.
Wow. I am still only in the first chapter (VBS every morning), but I think everyone should read it.
On page 37 he says. "God gave us the responsibility to care for the defenseless. It's through our hands the Father's love touches, it is through our voices His voice is heard, it is through our efforts and those of the church that His care is revealed to the ones the rest of the world has forgotten." He really nails it.
There are far too many orphans that the world, and the church, has forgotten.
And yes, this is another plea to help us show an orphan that she is not forgotten. Help us show her the love of Jesus. Help us show her orphanage that she does matter, that all children matter to our God and to us.
Elsa is no longer forgotten.
Our child needs your help to come home.
A friend of a friend has arranged an online 31 Products fundraiser for us. 100% of her commissions will go towards our adoption of Elsa. Through her efforts His care will be revealed to Elsa. Please visit the website here. There are some really neat products; I had never heard of "31 Products" before but am glad I know about it now! There is also a neat 31% off for every $10 spent sale. This fundraiser ends Saturday, so please take a look at it soon. Or now!
