As most of you know, we are in the LOOONG process of adopting a Paraguayan orphan. While we feel that God is calling us to adopt, we know that it is not for everyone. Yet, we do believe that God is clear that caring for orphans and widows is something Christ followers should take seriously.
Recently, we became familiar with the Reese Rainbow, an international orphan ministry. They just turned five years old. Since their inception, more than 500 orphaned children with Down syndrome and other special needs, who were hidden away in orphanages and mental institutions around the world, have now found "forever families" in the United States and Canada!
For their anniversary, they launched the 5/5/5 Warrior Project to bring greater awareness and grant funds to all of their 5-year old children, both with Down syndrome, HIV or other Angels. These kids are facing life-long institutionalization, instead of preparing for kindergarten like they should!
Folks, Timmy is five and when we look at him and think of what his life would be like in an institution we just want to weep. Our hearts break for these young ones whose entire lives have been without a home and their greatest desire is to have a real family.
We ask you to pray with us for these little children that are suffering!!
We have become prayer warriors for this sweet princess, named Sarah. She is almost exactly the same age as our little guy. Isn't she just a doll!!
Please pray with us for her healing, for her adoption funds and for her forever family!
We are so excited to have become 5/5/5 warriors for Lance! He just turned five in May and is living with HIV. Doesn't he just have the greatest smile! Currently, Lance has no funds in his adoption fund.
Our job as warriors for him, is to ask people to pray him home and raise funds for his adoption. Even $10 is a HUGE help offset adoption costs that might scare potential families away.
If you would like to donate, you can do that securely by clicking on their names. There are more five year olds that need prayer warriors too! Go here for more details.
Please leave us a comment letting us know that you are joining us in prayer for Sarah and Lance!
