"This is how grace works; it enters the soul, penetrates the heart, saturates the conscience, abides in the memory, affects the affections, gives understanding to the understanding, and imparts real life to the heart, which is the seat of life." Spurgeon

Elvis Lives!

Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction.... - James

Elvis is an 11 year old boy who is a double orphan. He has lost both his mother and father to HIV/Aids. Elvis is the eldest of 5 and has two young sisters and two young brothers. Elvis is quiet and loves to sing and pal around. He loves to learn about the bible and listen to stories and I fell in love with this little guy this week. Please pray for Elvis as he awaits a new home. He is beaten regularly for no reason by an alcoholic relative and is so sad. Elvis gets at most one meal per day. Smaller than 7 year old Tommy, please pray Elvis gets more food! Donate to Every Orphans Hope in Frisco Texas to make a difference. Sponsor a child an orphan for only $27 per month. Or come on a trip and be a part of a team that builds homes for widows and orphans that will house the kinds of families that will raise a generation of Zambians to do mighty things for the Lord. Elvis gave his life to Jesus this week and I am so thankful to call him my friend.

  1. Grandma is speechless -just came home from a funeral and have to head out to the cabin so I am taking my laptop with me and you can be sure that I will read every word and share with Les and we will pray about how we can help. Is adoption in the wind? Love Grandma/Mom
