Shout it from the roof tops!

Prior to our One Love Concert,
We were able to share a bit of our family story 
with our town.

A friend is a freelance writer,
when she heard about our fund raising concert
she asked if she could do an article
for us. 

We always love to share our story of
God's love and provision in our family.

As we sat and chatted we both
cried through the stories and the facts 
of the life of an orphan.
I was able to share the reality of the
orphans life with her,
"reality" as I know it -
never having lived it I will never truly understand.

Cindy, thank you for taking time 
to listen and turning our 2 1/2 hour conversation
into a 500 word article. 

Just hoping those who say the article,
learned something about the rest of the world,
and their eyes were opened
to something outside of our corner of the world.

Incredible blessing to have a friend listen in on your heart's cry for the children who need families. And for all of those who, I know, were touched by hearing it too, Jodi! Praising HIM that you were given such a gift of an opportunity to share.

Jodi,
Where/when can we read the article? I'm so sad I couldn't make the concert, but I'd love to read the story...

Jodi: Not only have you been in my thoughts, now the children in those orphanages are real to me, and I find myself thinking of them, too ... thank you for sharing your heart with me!
