This day has been anticipated by our church for several weeks. With our pastor overseas doing ministry work we asked to have the whole service.
I regret not having pictures from the day- it was amazing- you just would've had to have been there to know. But here's what we did...
We had everyone wear t-shirts to church supporting the organizations we support. That was cool. Then we had...
Focus on the International Orphan Crisis-
Skyped in Pastor Bishwa in Nepal and the 9 orphans he has taken in.
Heard testimony of a former member of the community who's internationally adopting from Ghana.
Prayed over her & for the international orphans.
Focus on the United States Orphan Crisis-
5 family who've adopted discussion panel
Our most recent adopted kid sang....like she did here back in June at our children's camp.
Let me rephrase this....She lead in worship! And there is a difference.
We had a new couple to our faith family speak about Abba's Hands- a local ministry to adoptive and foster families , the kids themselves and government employees.
We had an invitation and rejoice with a teen's recent decision to be adopted into God's family!
Our Choir sang , "Orphans of God"
We took buckets home to start collecting money for orphans around the world.
Then we came home and ate this....
Then while Charis and I rest the older kids played with their favorite rescued kids...all 3 adopted!
Yeah, God is good.
