I am so thankful for our church home in Bozeman (I know we don’t live there but they are still home in many ways). I still listen to sermons from Journey, not because I don’t love our church here because I do, but I love our church in Bozeman still. They are about taking the love of Christ to the community and to the world. One of the things that I love are all the families that are saying yes to making a difference in the lives of orphans. They don’t just talk about it, they DO it. The message from last week was powerful. I watched with tears streaming down the faces of children who now have forever homes on that stage and I listened to the testimony of one of them (recently adopted from Ethiopia) as Brian interviewed him. I encourage you to watch it, even if it’s only the first few minutes of it.

I know that not everyone will adopt and maybe some of you don’t agree with International adoption but I’ve been to Africa, I’ve gone to orphanages and held babies who can’t walk because they’re never held, who have lost the light of life in their eyes because no one is returning for them. Those children deserve a forever home and I hope one day we get the chance to adopt from Africa.
I wrote a post last November about saying yes. Will you say yes? Will you help in some way to love an orphan?
