Sunday Verses

I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.
--John 15:5

Two years ago, well before that even, we felt called by God to do something about helping the orphans of this world.  This was not our idea, it was God's.  We have 3 busy kids, busy lives working more than one job, you all know.  But despite our objections, God led us to a program in our area that hosts orphans from other countries for a month in the summer in the hopes of finding them an adoptive family.  This is Erika from Colombia, whom we hosted.  Last night we were blessed to see God's work through us come to fruition.  Erika's adoption by a wonderful family in our area was final and she arrived home this past week.  We got to see her and her happy family at church, what a joy it was.  Again, none of this was our doing.  The only part we played was allowing God to work through us, He gave us the idea, the strength, the time to help play a tiny part in changing a child's life forever.  God is good!

  4. Thank you so much for sharing. It is always good to see what God is doing in the lived of others, as well as our own. What a priviledge to be used by Him. So glad God has blessed so many homes with children that need homes. Only eternity will tell how He has worked to put children just where he wanted them to be. Blessings to you. Jo-Ann
