"Our Daddy may have only had a third grade education, but he could read the King James Bible, " says Helen Ashe. He taught us three things: 1. There is but one race-- the human race. 2. There is but one Father--the Heavenly Father. 3. Never take the last piece of bread from the table. (Helen Ashe co-founder of the Love Kitchen)"

Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me. Isaiah 6:8~
It never ceases to amaze me how the Lord can use people who are totally sold out to Him.
Many of you know the story of our Wee Boy. When he was brought to the orphanage in Ethiopia weighing in at a little less than 2 lbs nobody thought he would live. God had other plans and he arranged for three nurses from America to be there to care for him. They were so ingenious and resourceful in there care for him. A hoody became his incubator, the top of their sock became his hat, a ziplock bag with a warmed washcloth became his warmer. They loved him and cared for him around the clock and miraculously he lived.
One of those sweet nurses was the dear Sophie. Sophie has made 4 trips to Ethiopia to serve and minister to orphans and to care for the sick and needy in Soddo. She has personally cared for all three of our Ethiopian Sons. She has taught infection control to the nannies and hugged, loved, and brought joy to countless little ones in Ethiopia.
Next week our Wee Boy will be turning 4! Not a day goes by that I don't marvel at him and his love and strength. I am so thankful to God to be His mama and I am so thankful the Lord used Sophie in such a mighty way.
Sophie is now MOVING to Ethiopia as a missionary. I am so excited for her and for all of those whom I know she will bless. I know God is going to use her heart and her voice to tell of His matchless love and He will use her hands to bring love and healing to the sick and needy.
