Today is a day marked by many churches as Orphan Sunday. But today, in Ethiopia, a group of children who were once orphaned and utterly without hope are called sons and daughters and a group of widows suffering a similar plight have full arms and overflowing hearts. By God’s grace and the vision and work of Levi & Jessie Benkert, Ethiopia’s orphans and widows are being united to create new forever families.
My Hope and a Home 2013 calendar is free to print and enjoy or give as a gift, but would you prayerfully consider whether your family might partner with Levi & Jessie in the coming year to Bring Love In? There are several ways you can do this:
I hope this little calendar will serve as a reminder to you to pray regularly for Levi, Jessie, and Thomas.
Pray for the new forever families being birthed in Ethiopia. Get your children involved. Print this post, tack it to the fridge, and commit to pray for one family or one child every day/week.
RAISE YOUR VOICE
Be an advocate within your circle of influence to advocate for Ethiopia’s widows and orphans and to raise awareness for Bring Love In. Spread the word within your church, school, and community.
