"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world." (James 1:27)
1 Please continue to pray for Emma to come home by Christmas. You can click on the sidebar button for the story, or go here: Waiting for Emma. This family has been waiting over 3 years to adopt their baby girl from China. It's been one delay after another. How anguishing! I know that if we all just raise our voices, God will hear, and He will dispatch His angels to speed up the paperwork and bring Emma home soon!
2 Please pray for Jeremiah to come home, and if you're able, to chip in on the cost of some medical needs Jeremiah has. You can either click the button in the sidebar, or go here: Till God brings them home.
3 Operation Giggle has received many donated Christmas gifts for the orphans in China and Africa, but they still are in need of funds to ship the gifts. Click on the 'Operation Giggle' button on the sidebar, or go here: Operation Giggle.
The minute I completed my transaction on Paypal for Operation Giggle, God showed up something powerful. I can't even put it into words, the power of God hit here pretty hard, and the tears started flowing. Please know that everytime you help an orphan, you touch the very Heart of God.
I leave you with a quote from the Compassion website:
"Jesus doesn’t have any good news for those who serve the poor. Jesus didn’t come to bring good news of the Kingdom to those who serve the poor; he brought Good News to the poor." (Claudio Oliver, Brazil)
