Success!

Praise the Lord! We had a wonderfully successful kick off event on Sunday evening. It was such an indescribable blessing to see a room filled with 50-60 people who were eager to hear about Children's HopeChest and the kids in Ethiopia who need our help.

We are thrilled that about 45 children have been sponsored so far. BUT we still have 105 more who still need sponsors! It is a huge task, but we trust that God knows who each one will be.

Love this couple!

Door prizes and Go Seek Love T-shirts

A beautiful sight - child profiles disappearing from the wall as families choose the children that they will sponsor. This brings tears to my eyes.

More info to come soon about how you can sign up to sponsor a child in Ethiopia through Children's HopeChest.

I would LOVE to know how we can sponsor a child! Is there a website where we can go and see the profiles? So excited that yall had a successful evening! We are still waiting for our referral... it's been 17 months waiting and almost 2 years in process. Your family is one of the firsts that we started following when you were just united with your little guy.
