The cost of adoption is not about the family who is adopting. It is entirely for the benefit of the child who will no longer be an orphan. He cannot pay. Cannot even take out a loan. But we can stand at his side, and pay on his behalf.
Orphans are children who have been done a great harm, even if it was done out of necessity or love. They have been denied the un-earned love of parents that the majority of us have been given as a gift.
Do you see what I getting at here? I am not just asking you to support people in their efforts, no more than I was asking you to support my efforts. I asking you to support an ORPHAN. Folks, this *is* a biblical mandate. I'm asking you to care. Asking you to not look the other way this time. Please. If we do not raise their ransom and help break them free NO ONE WILL.
I want to one day stand in front of the Almighty and hear those words that I live my life to hear...
"Well Done Good and Faithful Servant."
What else is there to live for, folks? Really? This life is the first inch on that big ol' line we call eternity. Do you *REALLY* believe it? Be MOVED TO ACTION! Please!
I don't know about you, but me? I do NOT want to stand before the Father some day and say that I turned my back after seeing this....
I understand not everyone can adopt, I do. Although, I do believe that there are many that just don't want to adopt the children that actually need to be adopted. They want perfect. They want what my friend says is "a puppy that doesn't poop". Again, news flash here y'all, no kid is perfect and none come with guarantees. We are all born to serve and bring glory to God. I assure you that He didn't "make a mistake" when He created the children that aren't what society calls "perfect". I don't know much, but that, my friends, I *do* know.
We are funded, all glory to God. If it is His will we will be home with two less very soon. But there are MORE!
I am going to highlight one family today.
Meet the Jenks.
The Jenks said, "Yes, Lord, we will obey. We don't how this will happen, but we know who You are. You are faithful Lord. You are good, Lord. You WILL show us the way, Lord.
Who are they? From them...
A FAMILY. A Family that WANTS two that have lived nearly 13 years without someone wanting them.
Folks, I'm not just asking you to sponsor a family that is adopting. I'm asking you to take part in raising a ransom. A ransom for two lives. Two lives that have one last chance for a family.
Creations of the Almighty.
Two lives that carry the Breath of Life in them.
Are you ready to be part of the solution?
Want to buy something to support?
Awesome shirts, lots of styles, that will benefit the Jenks and several other families adopting from now until January 6th, 2014.
Many families wait to see how God will pave the way for them.
Faith is a gift from God. If you lack it, pray. Pray and ask the Lord to give you faith on FIRE!
I promise your world will be rocked!
In His Mercy,
