Blown away.

Five of the twelve bottles my friend, Brittney, is filling.

This is just a sample of pictures you all have sent me of your filled bottles!!
The response has been indescribable... people we barely know or haven't seen in years, people we don't know at all- I cannot get over how many people are stepping up to be the hands and feet of Christ!

A girl I went to school with sent me a pic of her daughter filling their bottle.

Some of you have just said the sweetest things about why you are supporting us (with prayer, with gifts, or otherwise) and I am HUMBLED. The thing is, we aren't doing anything spectacular.

It's very simple:

There's an orphan.
She needs us and we need her.
God said go get her... so we are.

Anything amazing that happens in the process (like this bottle drive!) or lives being touched by our family- well, those are little miracles that can only be crafted by the Father.

It is our responsibility to obey Him and to give Him the glory for ALL of these.

The second bottle from a family at church.

James 1:27
Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
