It’s time again for a look at how your purchases helped grow the adoption grants of some precious orphans.
In October, ADDIE was my Orphan of the Month. Unfortunately, no purchases were made in October so we were not able to contribute to Addie‘s grant. BUT… don’t worry… Addie will be Orphan of the Month in January, so please do make a purchase during this month and help grow Addie‘s adoption grant! Please also be praying for Addie‘s forever family to step forward for her – she has only 9 months before she ages out of the adoption system.
In November and December, i took part in Reece’s Rainbow’s Angel Tree Fundraiser. It is a big fundraiser for over 200 of the special needs orphans listed on their website. The goal was to raise US$1000 for each of those children. Everyone gets to pick one child to warrior / root / fundraise for.
My Angel Tree child was JASPER. My son and i have prayed for Jasper for over a year now, hoping and praying a family will come forward for him. These last 2 months was our last push for Jasper‘s family to come for him.
Your purchases in November came up to US$30. In December, they came up to US$48. And then there were the sales at the Christmas Market i took part in, which brought in US$147. So in 2 months, your purchases have contributed a total of US$112.50 to Jasper‘s adoption grant.
Unfortunately, Jasper has aged out of his country’s adoption system. Which means he would not be able to make use of this grant money.
However, it is not wasted – by no means! His grant of almost US$9500 was gifted to 2 boys who are also listed with Reece’s Rainbow. They are Erich and Benji. Both of these boys have just months before they age out too. Erich has 5 months and Benji has 7 months! So please do be praying for these boys, pray that their forever families would see them and step up for them asap! Click on their names to find out more.
Do also be praying for Jasper as he is only 14 and has to manage this wide world all on his own. He may be able to stay at the institute for a while more but i do not know what happens to him after that. i have been told that sometimes these special needs orphans get sent to another institute if they are thought to be unable to manage the outside world. Otherwise, he would be turned out into the streets with little education/skills to fend for himself. i will be praying that God watches over him always. Pray with me.
Thank you all so much for all your support in 2014!
i look forward to your continued support in 2015! Come and shop!
