Rogers' Family Giveaway!

I'm a little nervous to be coming to you all, again, and asking for help. I have learned to ask myself one very important question before I do anything like this giveaway. I asked myself that question last night, what is my motivation for doing this? There is only one acceptable answer to this question. My motivation is LOVE. Whenever, we endeavor to do something for the Kingdom, our motivation can have nothing to do with us and everything to do with LOVE.

Asking you to help, to give, to do more, it makes me uncomfortable, but I'm willing to do it, because love is my motivator. Love, my friends, is a verb! When God calls us to love our neighbor, that love involves action. When I look at these two sweet faces, I am overwhelmed by love.
Mason is nine years old and the size of a kindergartner. 

Bernadette, our Sunshine Girl, is nearly 16 and she was running out of time to be adopted. Thank God for the Rogers' Family's willingness to step up and move quickly to bring these two precious children home.

I look at these two and I am amazed by the seed of love that has grown in my heart for them. I have also grown to love their soon to be family. It's not often that I come to you and I'm able to tell you about a family from personal experience. The Rogers' family is full of laughter, fun and JOY! I can't wait to see Bernadette and Mason at home with them and a part of that. These are my friends and God has tied our lives together in an effort to help the orphans. 


I have met amazing people on this journey to bring our sons home and I'd say the Rogers' family tops the list. They need our help and some wonderful friends have rallied and offered prizes for our giveaway. So now that I've gushed all over the place and you understand my love for these amazing people and their precious children. Let's jump in!
