WE MADE THE PAPER ...

Check out the article on-line about our journey and our hearts to Uganda ... Wish you could see the actual paper because it has a big ole picture of my Joseph and Daisy ...

Jesus Calling today ... "If you are not adequately equipped for the journey, you will grow weary and lose heart.  Relax in ME while I ready you for action."

Taking a deep breathe today and relaxing in HIM and knowing my children will be home ONE day ...



147MillionOrphans.com is off to an amazing start ... Christmas orders are coming in and we are CRAZY busy working to run an efficient ship here, but it is not w/out its kinks ... Thanks to all for your patience !! We will do a big post in December announcing all the children in the Karomajong Tribe that have been feed because of your purchases !!!

15 kind words.:

Mom to 9 Blessings! said...

So excited to hear things are going well for 147Millionorphans! God is faithful to do it!

Hugs and much love,
Jill

What a great article! I loved it. Hopefully it will inspire more to check out the adoption journey!

As for 147MillionOrphans...I saw the pic. How cute! Thank you!! I also got my bead necklace yesterday and LOVE LOVE LOVE it! My family already knows they are getting shirts or something like that for Christmas and are under strict instructions to wear it and SPREAD THE WORD!! ;)

It was a great article! My grandmother saved it for me and gave it to me yesterday. That was HUGE because she has not been totally in support of our adoption. I think seeing all of the articles about adoption recently is helping her to see that there are many wonderful families doing it in our area. Just like your family! Thank you for being the witness that you are!

What a beautiful article, and well done. I'm so thankful that your family is being featured, and right before National Orphan Sunday. Glad to hear the site is going well. I wish I had business cards(147millionorphans) for my trip to my home church in Gardendale, AL next Sunday. It's an all day event including the simulcast from Nashville (i think). I will be wearing a necklace and can't wait to share with others about your family and Amazima. Love from a Sista,

YAY for making the paper....and YAY for 147 Million Orphans! IF you guys need help let me know. Praying for you girl.
He said unto them: "It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority."
Acts 1:7

But as Scripture says: "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined the things that God has prepared for those who love him."
1 Corinthians 2:9
