Orphan Sunday

Orphan Sunday, November 8, 2009!

What a day to sit and reflect on the Orphan's around the world!
This really hits home for our family!
Marcus...Marcus comes from a line of Orphans. We know very little of his short little life, but we do know that this is his family. How sad is that!

I am praying that we can do something in church to remember all the children in waiting!

Here is another site:

Last night I finished up stuff to send to Marcus! This last 4 months, God has been so good in finding ways to send Marcus some clothes, shoes, more vitamins, itch cream, band aids, triple anti-biotic, books, candy, Tylenol, rubber bands for the girls, socks, Iowa Hawkeye t-shirt, and a photo album of life in Iowa! I know all the children benefit from this care package! That is what is it meant for! Got a cute card for Marcus also! Not sure if he really understands who we are yet! Grandpa and Grandma A, sent a book, card and the tiger! I know our Agency's Director said she said keep it small! How hard that is!

Of course Zoey had to get on the picture! :)

4 Sing to God, sing praise to his name,
extol him who rides on the clouds [a]—
his name is the LORD—
and rejoice before him.
5 A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows,
is God in his holy dwelling.
6 God sets the lonely in families, [b]
he leads forth the prisoners with singing;
but the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land.
(Psalm 68:4-6)

Prayer Requests:

Please continue to pray for those in Liberia!

For our Agency as our Director travels in October.

Those who are waiting! (Don't you just think of that song!?)

Orphan Sunday!
