"Change" A Life

Friends and Family...

We are ready to get you involved in our journey! Many of you have committed to praying for us and have given such wonderful words of affirmation to us since we made our official announcement that we were adopting from Ethiopia.  Even though we have not seen this child, we are already praying for her salvation, her adoption into God's family.  We are forever grateful for your partnership!  It takes a village...

Our first fundraiser will allow you all to help us "change" a life for one child.  This will be an on-going fundraiser and should be an easy one.  We are asking families to place a mason jar (that looks just like the one below) somewhere in their house and to toss in their loose change. This is a great way to get your whole family involved in caring for orphans. We are hoping that this will also serve as a reminder to pray for the millions of abandoned children all over the world.  

Once your jar is full, you can bring it to us and let us know if you want to continue to re-fill it until our child comes home.  For those who live out of town, but want to participate, any jar will do! Every penny, quarter, dollar, will go towards changing an entire generation for this little girl. It is also our wish to use some of the monies collected to purchase needed items for the orphanage in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, where our child will live until we meet her.   

For those feeling lead to give beyond "the jar", you can do so by clicking the yellow DONATE button at the top right.  

 I have the jars with the labels on them. Please just email me at if you would like one, and I will get it to you.  

Thankful for each of you...

...‘I tell you the truth, just as you did it for one of the least of these brothers or sisters of mine, you did it for me.’  Matthew 25:40
