In this life we can not always do great things. But we can do small things with great love.." :) Mother Teresa

Prayer Quote

“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”
― C. S. Lewis


I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)

Hello Little Girlies!

We are in an internet cafe'. I'm so sorry we couldn't write yesterday, we had to find a place to make contact.

We had a VERY busy day! We visited Green Forest Orphanage today and Sasha sends his love. He was very happy to see pictures of you and remembered your names. He is 7 now.
This is his last year at Green Forest.

We visited the hostel too. I am happy to say we will be getting a washing machine and a stove for the girls so they can cook and wash their clothing. They have been washing by hand and the weather is very cold.

I will try to write more.

I plan to look at your letters when we get back to our apartment!

We love you so very, very much!

I'm glad Becca and Sam are doing well. :)

Christie can you check on a little boy Vladik at Green Forest orphanage. He was supposed to be adopted by a German couple. I also had a family email me about a boy David at the internat and his sister Marie at the orphanage. If you have a chance to check that out I emailed you details on them. I am definitely going with you next year.
