We are super excited to jump into a unique experience for our family this Summer!  We are participating in an international orphan hosting program.  For 10 weeks we will host "A", a Ukrainian teen, in our home.  She speaks Russian, loves animals, is one of the top students in her school, and we can’t wait to meet her!  Our kids can’t wait to welcome their Summer Sister <3  

This is where you come in!  Because it takes a village, we are reaching out to you so that you can be a part of our journey.  She will arrive with nothing besides the clothes on her back.  We will provide her a comfortable home filled with unconditional love and  acceptance.  We plan to teach her English, share our culture, visit the beach, ride bikes, work puzzles, go swimming and bowling, eat ice cream, and show her the love of Christ.

We are reaching out for prayer and financial support for a few reasons… First, to offer you the opportunity to come alongside us and invest in A’s precious life.  We can’t do this alone!  Together we can provide her the experience of a lifetime-- a summer beyond her dreams!  And do this while showing her the love of a family, and instilling hope and confidence in the future.  Imagine being that one lost lamb, and how it feels to be sought out and found, chosen...

Second, to raise awareness of the orphaned children in Ukraine.  The outlook for orphans in Ukraine is meek with a possible reality of living alone, scared and hungry, with heartbreaking statistics of human trafficking, drug and alcohol addiction, and even suicide.

“Whoever welcomes a child in my name welcomes me.”  Matthew 18:5

Here’s a video of snapshots of previous hosting trips:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UawCRwjSKFw

When God knocks, sometimes you open your heart, and sometimes you open your heart AND your home.  This sweet young girl, A,  is living in a war-torn country, with a past she never asked for.  There are so many reasons we shouldn’t host, but there is one perfect reason we should!  LOVE.  We want her to know she is loved and cared for. We want to give her a family to love.  We want her to experience the love of Christ and plants seeds of hope for her future.  

Would you prayerfully consider supporting us with your prayer and financial support?
