Serious Business

We've had some eye-opening experiences this week in regards to international adoption, the need of the orphans, and the condition of one of our boys. I have removed some posts from the blog to protect many people, mostly the children who need families. I read a post on another blog awhile back that said, "if you don't believe in spiritual warfare, begin an international adoption." I'm not sure if truer words were ever written. I have said about all I can say, for now.

Except to ask you to pray. Pray for hearts to be opened to the needs of these children. Pray for the warriors on the front lines of orphan care. Pray for the ones behind the scenes, who are constantly bombarded with questions and often verbally attacked. It is easy to hide behind a computer screen, to say and do things we wouldn't necessarily do in "real-life." Pray for wisdom in how to proceed. Pray for protection and safety. So many times people ask me, "What can I do to help?" The answer is PRAY!

Prayer changes things. Prayer grabs the heart of God. Prayer defeats the enemy. Won't you pray? There are precious children whose very lives are counting on your prayers.

Pray, Adopt, Advocate, Support.

Hidden in Christ,
Mandy
