Will You Say Yes?

November 22, 2011 — 2 Comments

I am so thankful for our church home in Bozeman (I know we don’t live there but they are still home in many ways). I still listen to sermons from Journey, not because I don’t love our church here because I do, but I love our church in Bozeman still. They are about taking the love of Christ to the community and to the world. One of the things that I love are all the families that are saying yes to making a difference in the lives of orphans. They don’t just talk about it, they DO it. The message from last week was powerful. I watched with tears streaming down the faces of children who now have forever homes on that stage and I listened to the testimony of one of them (recently adopted from Ethiopia) as Brian interviewed him. I encourage you to watch it, even if it’s only the first few minutes of it.

I know that not everyone will adopt and maybe some of you don’t agree with International adoption but I’ve been to Africa, I’ve gone to orphanages and held babies who can’t walk because they’re never held, who have lost the light of life in their eyes because no one is returning for them. Those children deserve a forever home and I hope one day we get the chance to adopt from Africa.

I wrote a post last November about saying yes. Will you say yes? Will you help in some way to love an orphan?

  1. Jody, I just came across this post of yours today. I don’t know if you’ll see this, but I just thought I would write. Seth and I went to that service at Journey (and cried as well). Adoption had been on my heart for a while, but that night we felt God asking us to do something about it. The next day we opened a savings account and committed to saving each month for the adoption process for us someday. We really look forward to getting to move forward with one of these children in great need around the world. Thanks for the encouragement. Love you!
