From the title perhaps you’re thinking Santa Claus, Buddy the Elf, or even God forbid: Marley’s ghost. I assure you it is none of those things. We have the opportunity to host two orphans (a brother and sister) for 4 weeks. They will arrive in mid-December and depart in mid-January. From the hosting website here is a description as to the scope of this opportunity:

“A life changing 4 week winter event where you welcome an orphaned child into your family’s home. Some of these children have never had, or were too little to remember a normal family life.  You can help change that!  You show them what a loving family is all about, to be loved and cared for without conditions.  You help them learn English, introduce them to our culture, immerse them into an atmosphere of happiness.  You might be surprised at whose life is changed the most at the end of the 4 weeks.”

While this is not an adoption, it is a tangible way to take care of orphans.  I am personally excited to have the opportunity to commend this program, instill hope in the lives of 2 children, and encourage my children (and us of course) to live just a tiny bit sacrificially in a different way. Please pray for us and for them. Many of them have never been to church and probably do not know Jesus. Pray for their hearts and our time together.  If you have questions as to what all this is about, please check out this link.
