A Blast from the Past

A Blast from the Past

You may remember Anya from a 2015 prayer bookmark. She and her six brothers live in Kyrgyzstan, a country about the size of South Dakota. Their father has serious health problems so their mother works several jobs to support the family. Even so, in 2010 there was not enough food, no running water, and not enough beds, so authorities removed the kids to live with a foster family and in an orphanage. With help, by 2013 Anya’s parents improved the house enough so that Anya and her brothers could move back. But in 2015 around Christmastime, their heating system broke; local authorities again threatened to remove Anya and her brothers from the home. Thanks to your prayers and some generous gifts, Anya’s parents replaced the heating system, giving their children a warm and safe home. Now, two years later, Anya and her brothers are thriving! They are doing well in school and enjoying their summer break. Thank you for your prayers, still working two years later! 

 

Once Abandoned … Now Adopted

More than six years ago we first heard about little German. Abandoned at birth with a myriad of health and vision problems—including a severe case of childhood diabetes—tiny German was an unlikely candidate for adoption. Hospital caregivers didn’t expect him to ever find a family.

However, from the moment they saw him, his adoptive parents Roman and Larissa felt in their hearts that was the son they believed God had promised them many years before. Unfortunately, they lacked the money to cover German’s medical expenses and care. Thanks to generous gifts, German received the life-saving medical care he needed.

His parents wrote: We treasure you and are thankful to God that you have wide, loving hearts. With sensitivity and compassion, you have become close to us through your help for our son in this time of his need. 

Let’s praise God for German’s progress and continue to pray with his parents for his full healing, which is their heart’s true desire.

Would You Pray for These Final Steps in Amalia's Adoption Journey?

July 01, 2017

If you were to spend any amount of time with four-year-old Amalia, you wouldn’t understand how this joyful little girl could have been abandoned in a hospital at birth. Yet this sad truth is all too familiar in Romania.

But God had a plan for tiny Amalia. When she was a year old, a local Christian couple, Simon and Lenuta, lovingly opened their hearts and home to her as her foster family. Amalia has thrived with them and their adopted son, Ionut, growing to love music (Simon is a worship leader at their church) and to enjoy solving puzzles with them.

After three years of fostering, Simon and Lenuta want to officially adopt Amalia! But in order to legally do so, they must set up a separate bedroom for her (she currently shares one with her foster brother). Praise God that the funding has been provided! Please pray that God would carry the family through each stage of the house renovation and adoption process.

At the present time, 153 million children in our world are orphans. If these children were counted as a single nation, they would compose the seventh largest nation on earth. Join us in praying that God provides a home for each of these precious little ones who long for a loving family!
