147 Million Orphans Blog
how many hits?
I've been feeling the urge to blog but have been "empty headed" on what to write. When I think about the Easter season, I am in total awe of what Christ did for me. lil' ole' me. He hung on a cross full of splinters, thorns in his flesh, and was beaten LITERALLY to death.
All of the information that is being brought to light about child slavery/children soldiers/sex trafficking is waking us up. It is showing the hate that people really have in their hearts around the world. If we REALLY open our eyes and hearts to these situations we should be broken and LONG to help. I cant help but think about the day that Christ hung on the cross. What if I had been standing in the crowd? Would I have been fighting to get to him? Would I have been crying so hard that I was paralyzed? Would I have fought to my death to help him? Or would I just stand in shock?
I like to think that I would have fought to my death. I often wonder why the disciples didn't compile a group of men and fight on Christ's behalf. i know that He told them that it was going to come to pass, but come on!! help a brother out! ( I have so many questions to ask when i sit at HIS feet one day...)
So, what do we do with the things that we KNOW about? All of the "wrongdoings" that are being done to children around the world?
rewind a few months ago... Gwen and I received a Facebook message that asked us if we would do a "FREE 1" tee. Our friend explained her situation to us and we said "YEEEES" we will do a "FREE 1" tee!
Get a load of this story: A young lady (25 years old) lives in Haiti. Megan Boudreaux is her name... (and she is AWESOME! ) She started a ministry named RESPIRE HAITI. (pronounced re/spe/rae)
-Respire Haiti was founded in December of 2010. Megan moved there in January 2011 by herself and met Michaelle (who's now her 8 year old) and started learning about Restaveks (child saves) later, she added another little girl to her family:)
-In January of 2010 she started 1 feeding program (with 70 children, now it's 2 programs, 700 children).
We have earrings coming...made from broken bottles. Megan has a group of people that she is helping to be self sustainable. they are making these beautiful earrings for us.....cannot wait for you to see them:)
Happy Easter! HE IS RISEN!
- I am a lover of Jesus. I have the most fabulous husband that anyone woman could ask for. The Lord has blessed us with 7 beautiful children. I started this blog so that friends and family could follow our trip to Uganda to visit Katie Davis. I have decided to keep blogging to help bring orphan awareness to the world around me.
