maybe this thought is brand new to you... Maybe the whole idea of adoption
is to you as foreign as the little children who have no place to call home and no one to call Daddy or Mama.
Adoption is not just about families who need children,
it's about children who need families.
We received this
note from friends that Wes met when he went with Troy to assist in picking
up the children they
adopted from Liberia. Jenny and her husband Brad have adopted 4
children from Liberia---theirs is a touching and
bittersweet story of how God provided, how He comforted them when one of the
babies they had adopted died in Liberia.
It's a story of God's mercy and provision as she returned home to the States
with two of their adopted children
(along with another she was escorting for someone else!!) and how God
mercifully blessed them and how He
Brad as he returned to the States the following week with the other
two---both very sick little babies.
If you're interested
in adoption or simply seek encouragement
to follow the LORD day by day, you can
read their story, her insights on
life and God's Word
by subscribing to her very
inspirational newsletter here.
This, from Jenny: "Liberian Ministries is bringing the gospel of
Jesus Christ into a very interior part of the country,
as well as caring for orphans, providing medical care, Christian education,
etc. Their focus is very evangelistic,
and they have a free DVD you can request to learn more. I just thought it
might be nice to add their link for people
who want to care for the children of Liberia, spread the Gospel, but don't
necessarily feel led to adopt."
The focus of
Ministries is "to
Reach the nation of
Liberia for Christ through a focus on the outlying
villages. Train the next generation of business, political
and religious leaders of the country. Build a strong friend
of the United States of America."
