|Two of the orphaned girls|
They came up to visit us last weekend and showed us pictures and videos and told stories. They read us handwritten letters given them by the orphans saying heart-grabbing things like, "We'll never forget you. Please don't forget us." My brother told me, "When we went I expected that we would be changed by the experience. But what I didn't expect was how we would actually be able to bless them." And God did indeed bless them through my brother's family. The unique talents each family member had, God used to help the orphanage, from cake decorating to automotive mechanics to math to digital photography to simply being a good listener (to name a few).
There are far more stories and pictures than I can share with you here, but I really want to encourage you to take time to study their blog, photo gallery (over 1000 photos), and YouTube collection. Here are the links for you:
Blog Remember, with a blog things are in reverse date order, so to see it chronologically you can go back to the beginning and read forward.
Photos (each photo on the main page is actually a folder containing many pictures, click on each to see the pictures within it)
YouTube (make sure to watch both the Uploads and Favorites)
I'd encourage you to sponsor an orphan there. After hearing my brother's family's stories, I'm sponsoring a boy there myself.
