Let's Help This Family!
A few months ago I became a LifeLetter Cafe Writer. If you aren't familiar with this site, you should head over there now and check it out.
According to their website, LifeLetter Cafe is "a blog ministry designed to both promote steps of greater trust in the person and work of Jesus Christ and his amazing grace and provide encouragement to Kingdom Difference-Makers like yourself who seek to advance His name."
It is full of thoughtful, challenging, encouraging content to help you grow in your faith. You will also find great writers to follow there.
Erik Haviland is one of the staff members who makes LifeLetter Cafe happen. I have had the privilege of working with him on a couple of occasions. Today I came across a post about the adoption he and his wife are pursuing. A 15-year old boy named Kolya (pronounced Cola) is going to age-out of his orphanage in Ukraine unless he is adopted soon.
The statistics surrounding kids who age out of the orphanages there are appalling. Would you head over to LifeLetter Cafe and read David B. Miller's post about this situation?
I am so thankful for families willing to open their lives and homes to orphans. The Bible is clear in its directives to care for the widow and the orphan. I have a nephew who was adopted from Peru in his late teens. He is one of my favorite people and he and his wife are now starting missions work to the Native American Cherokees. That adoption changed many lives!
The family could use your help in several ways:
1. Pray for Kolya and the Haviland family.
2. Give to their GoFundMe page.
3. Share this post or the one on LifeLetterCafe.
Let's help get Koyla home!
