What can you do for the cost of a dinner night out??

Feliz Navidad de Bogota, Colombia! We pray that your families are doing well and enjoying this sweet season. Ours is ‘quite’ different this year, being in another country and all :) One of the highlights has been getting the chance to know twelve orphans who live in the neighborhood by church. We are looking for twelve families to come alongside us and help buy them new bedding (total cost is $30).

These children live in a home that was started by a mom who has two boys of her own. She has taken the huge responsibility of raising these children because they were abandoned. We toured the home yesterday and got to know more about this ministry. As you can imagine the needs are many with that many children. These are children from 8 -18 years old, more than likely they will not be adopted because of their ages. They all go to school, have been hurt in many ways, are very loving, kind and full of hope. We plan to come alongside them as much as possible while we are here, so please pray for us to be able to share God’s Love with them.
