Honoring A Friend

I’m always impressed at the creative ways people can come up with for raising money to help those less fortunate.  Our Office Manager, Stacy had a best friend who passed from this life into heaven before her time. Jennifer Sortino was a teacher, wife and loving mother to three children. It had always been her dream to go to Africa, wrap her arms around the children there, and instill in them the love of reading books. Unfortunately, her dream was cancelled by breast cancer before it could become a reality.

Hearing The Cry of The Poor

“Whoso stoppeth his ears at the cry of the poor, he also shall cry himself, but shall not be heard.”  Proverbs (21:13)

When you look into the eyes of a hungry or frightened child, you are looking into the eyes of Jesus crying out to you for help. He cries out to you in the orphaned, abandoned and at risk children, some of the most vulnerable children in the world.

Another Girl Again

I had to laugh when I received this little piece of cultural information from the Krause's who live and teach in an orphanage we support in Zambia:

Ronda – "In the Zambian Culture...  and Botswana as well, when a child is born and is the same sex as the last several children in the family they are named accordingly. In Botswana, a boy might be given the name Hosimonihopi....meaning "another boy again". We know a girl in Macha whose name is Nchumuna meaning 'another girl again".
