Wow. We take so much for granted. In our minds I think we become used to the fact that in Africa, they walk to get their water and it's not so clean. What if it was us though? Our neighbors that we are supposed to be loving as ourselves are dying because we are comfortable with our lives. We are neglecting our 1.1 billion neighbors who drink parasite infested water while we safely drink our extra purified bottled water. May we not ignore the lives of others for the sake of maintaining our lifestyles any longer. Watch the video and get involved. www.safewaternexus.org
I love Jesus Christ with all my heart. For reasons that I will never understand, He died to save me from my sins. I love Him because He first loved me. He says in Matthew 25:40 that He is "the least of these." He is the orphan and the widow and the poor and the hungry. I love Him and want to serve Him through serving the least.I have 8 siblings; 2 biological, 5 adopted, and one "unofficially adopted". Adoption has opened my eyes and changed my heart forever.
I have a new passion and what I have seen has broken me and changed my heart.
This started out as a journal of my trip to Ethiopia to bring home my 3 newest siblings but it has turned into much more. God has started me and my family on a whole new journey and it's crazy, exciting, hard and just plain God. Since we started adopting 6 years ago, God has taken me to Africa, China and Guatemala to care for and visit orphans. God has taught me so much through serving them and getting to know them and I hope to be able to give as much to them as they have to me.
