A New Addition to our Family!

We are so excited to announce our new "addition." We were just matched with a precious sponsor child in Ethiopia! We have partnered with Children's Hopechest to help provide this beautiful girl with food, water, access to medical care, education and discipleship.

Children's Hopechest is working with a care-point center in Ethiopia called "Trees of Glory." There are 84 children there currently hoping for a sponsor. These children are mostly orphans who are living with a family member who can barely provide for them and many of them are severely malnourished and frequently ill. A sponsorship will help ensure these children access to a better environment, improved health, tutoring, and Bible training. It also allows for the sponsor to communicate one-on-one with the child, offering them encouragement, guidance, and the love of Christ.

If you have ever thought about sponsoring a child, please let NOW be the time. Your decision to sponsor a child will have a lasting impact on their lives.

You can read more about Trees of Glory and view the pictures of children who still need sponsors by visiting the blog of Karen Wistrom at www.family-from-afar.blogspot.com.

Trees of Glory is the location Charlie and I will be visiting later this year when we travel to Ethiopia. We will be providing them with donations as well meeting our precious sponsor child! If you decide to sponsor a child at this location, please let us know as we would be so honored to meet them and take photos for you!
