I met this amazing little boy in China when I was there in July and the Lord just spoke to my heart so much through him while I was there. My heart just broke for this child and I truly began to see and feel more closely the pain of orphans and it broke me. I have cried over the bleak hope the world prescribes for his future and then I remembered that God says in Jeremiah 29:11 that He has a plan full of hope for each of our futures, a plan to prosper us and not to harm us. It makes my heart glad to serve such an awesome God! Please join me in praying for this sweet little boy's life and all of the other children around the world with similar stories. I truly can not wait for that day! I pray that I will be able to go back someday soon and see his sweet little self again. Its so very different just hearing about orphans and meeting these amazing kids and begin to bond with them. I will never forget Michael's sweet face. It is truly humbling and heartbreaking. It makes me cling to the promise in John 14:18 When Jesus says "I will not leave you as orphans but I will come to you..." He meant that for all of us and I truly believe that one day Jesus will return and the word orphan will be erased from our vocabulary forever and all will made right. My heart is broken for the plight of these kids and I truly want to be Jesus to them in showing them His love throughout my life. Well last week I mailed a package to him and it already made it to China!! My friend sent me pictures of him opening it too!! Isn't he just too precious?!
