Merry Christmas everyone! As you go into this blessed holiday weekend hopefully spent with family, friends and loved ones, I want to ask that you keep the fatherless in your thoughts and prayers...the ones who are not loved and cherished...the ones that lay alone day after day. The ones that have little hope outside of the dear Lord coming to take them home. Please pray that they are comforted and fed and loved on even a little bit this Christmas season. But especially please pray that it's their last Christmas alone in the world. The photo's I leave you with today are the children that didn't make it to their earthly families. They waited and waited...but time ran out for them. It didn't have to be that way....PLEASE step out in faith to save one of the 'least of these'...so that they can experience the love of family too.Precious Anne Marie...from Artioms orphanage.
And Finally, I leave you with a great man, Derek Loux. He stepped to the other side to help Jesus with all these children a year ago today. He was truly one of the best examples of Christian love that I have ever seen. He LOVED the fatherless with all he had in him. No matter the cost, no matter the outcome, no matter what the 'return' was. He just loved.
I know without a doubt upon entering the gates of Heaven Derek heard these words "Well done my good and faithful servant"
