no packing required...

our family is going on a mission trip this summer.
all 6 of us.
even the pets.
no luggage, no travel shots, no motion sickness bags.
in fact, we're not leaving home...

see this sweet face?
  
we have the honor of hosting this little
guy from China for 6 weeks
through an amazing organization
called New Horizons for Children.

over 70 orphaned boys & girls will
be coming to stay in Christian homes in
 the US from July 9 -Aug. 16.


some of the main goals...

"to learn about God, experience His love & realize they
have a Father Who loves them"
"to provide an educational/cultural experience"
"to show them unconditional love & acceptance"
"to introduce adoptable children to families &
hopefully find their forever family"
hmmmm....more on that later :)

this has been no small undertaking in many ways.
we don't take this lightly, & we are beyond excited!

would you pray for us?!
financially, emotionally, and most importantly,
that Father's love would be overflowing in our home.

"a thief is only there to steal and kill and destroy.
I came so they can have real and eternal life,
more and better life than they ever dreamed of."
John 10:10
