"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

Prayer Request: Will's Orphans

"The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, because the LORD has anointed me to bring good news to the poor; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound, ... to comfort all who mourn, ... to give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair; that they may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he may be glorified." Isaiah 61

I already miss these little guys so much. What an amazing trip. We are already planning our next visit. Before this trip my eyes were closed. Living in the US I had no idea what suffering could look like. And I travel regularly to war torn and impoverished places like Sierra Leone for business. The suffering and deprivation we witnessed taking place in every day Zambian orphan life was horrific.

Do these fighters a favor and please take a minute right now to pray for them with us? You can make a huge difference by asking God to protect and provide for (L-R):
Back row: Evas, Elijah, Lukas, Mwendabai, Agness,
Front row: Elvis, Alfred, Tanasho, Eustace

We thank God that he fulfilled the promise of Isaiah 61 the past 3 weeks in the lives of nearly a thousand 4 -18 year old Zambian orphans.

Nighttime is hardest for these guys. please pray.
