Defend the cause of the weak and fatherless; maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed. Psalm 82:3

What if there are children who will suffer somehow because I failed to obey God?
What if my cowardice costs even one child somewhere in the world his or her life?
(excerpt from The Hole in Our Gospel)

Day 2 total :o)))))

We're blown away.  As day 2 comes to a close, we're up to $545 ish for our Give1Save1 campaign.  If you're wondering where all these amazing donations are coming from...I wish I could tell you.  But, many of the names we see here aren't even people we know.  No kidding!

Tomorrow we SHOULD know if Habtamu's file was translated in time to make it to the Embassy this week.  If not, we should be on for next week. Guess you could say that this week we're counting UP and DOWN at the same time?

Lord, thank you for the amazing show of support and generosity so far - support from many people we don't even know.  Thank you for the very tangible reminder that there are people in the world who truly do love orphans...even if they aren't the one's bringing them home right now.  Thank you for the many ways you show up in our lives, and thank you for this incredible journey you have us on right now.  Please keep all of the "waiting children" safe until their forever families are able to bring them home.  Amen.
