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)

Our week is over...and the end is FINALLY in sight

$1025.  That's what our Give1Save1 week ended up producing for our "Habtamu Fund".  I'm speechless because the OVERWHELMING majority (like 96%) of people who gave, are people I don't even know.  No kidding.  Pretty sure God had a hand in that one, don't you think?


Those who gave should have received an e-card from me (or a hand written card in some extreme cases), so if you didn't, check you spam folder!

In other news, our case was submitted to the Embassy today!  Pretty sure a birth relative interview will be requested and we HOPE it happens next week.  Please, please, please pray it does.  His uncle has a LONG way to come for the interview...and I can't tell you how many things run through my head about all that could go wrong.  We're so close now...and we want our son home!  Something tells us he wants to come home too.  Thanks, Kim, for bringing these home with you from your trip to see your kids.    Couldn't have asked for a better "souvenir".

  1. WOW, what generous people there are in this world today! Maybe, just maybe, Habtamu will be home with you when I get there in June. That would be great. Hugs & Kisses, Mom

  2. How, wonderful..and always thanks for sharing
