URGENT! Adoption turned rescue mission and another matching grant!


We are down to the last 2 days of our fundraiser!!! Wow.  God has provided and moved hearts for the orphan. This hasn't been about me, or Lindy's family. This is about bringing glory to God, and following his word. Proverbs 24:12 tell us 
    “Once our eyes are opened, we can’t pretend we don’t know what to do. God who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know and holds us responsible to act.'

Folks have listened. They have heard. We are humbled.

Orphan children should not suffer and be left alone to a cruel world because that is EASIER for us. We are not called to be comfortable. We are called to obey.  

~Reality check time. Lindy's little one Kole, has turned 5 years old. Turning 4 or 5 in an Eastern European orphanage is NOT a time of celebration. Its a time of dread. Its a loud clock ticking. Tick Tock. Tick Tock. Tick Tock. Its the count down to the medical van pulling up and the long drive to the remote mental institution. It is scary. Their whole world as they have known it has been destroyed.

We  have seen the damage moving our "Phillip" (Sasha to us) to an older childs special needs institute has done to him.. He is scary thin, his hand twitches and his speech has regressed. What about his heart and soul? Only time will tell.

                                Our Boy now :( hang in there baby!

~The good news ? We have a matching grant offer. AND We are almost there !! Hang on babies!
Lindy's brother Adam Dumala and his Fiance Amber Lyn Montross are going to donate 2 dollars for every 1 dollar donated. That means when you give $10, they will donate $20!!! So your $10 will be $30! Get it?!? The bigger picture means that if we can get $500 in donations, Lindy's brother and Amber will give $1,000!!!!!!!!!!! 

God has continued to move people's hearts and put amazing

 generous people in our paths who truly feel the pain of the

 orphan. Praise God.

We need just a little bit more help :) We are almost there.

Please share our blog, and help get the word out. Pray for our boys. Pray they are treated with kindness and they stay well until we are there.

Scroll down to the post announcing our fundraiser to see OVER 30 AWESOME gifts you will have a chance at for a mere $10 donation!

God is good. Always.
