42"And whoever in the name of a disciple gives to one of these little ones even a cup of cold water to drink, truly I say to you, he shall not lose his reward." Matthew 10:42
A drink of water..a blanket for an Ethiopian newborn...
If the Lord leads you please go and visit Mary as she hosts a "Party" on her Blog to raise money to give blankets to impoverished Ethiopian Mothers who often leave the hospital with nothing for their little babies.
We are so blessed to have the luxury of choosing from a myriad of outfits and blankets to bring our little ones home in. It's hard to imagine not having anything to wrap up a new babe to protect them from the elements.
Mary is a Mom to 10. She is an adoptive Mom also with 2 sons from Korea and 4 daughters from Ethiopia.
Mary's Mom, Dad, and sister will be traveling to volunteer at Soddo Hospital this summer.
Our 5 yo son is from Soddo, so this area holds a special place in our hearts.
Also, Mary's Sister.. Sophie was used mightily by God to save our little Wee Babe's life. She has cared for all three of our Ethiopian sons while they were in orphanages. We are so excited to see how God is going to use her again .
So, if God leads you HERE IS HOW TO GET TO THE PARTY
