Returning to South Africa!

Dear friends!

A new recent development has graciously allowed me the opportunity to return 'home' to South Africa. First and foremost, I am grateful for the Sovereignty of God and His plans above all. Ever since setting foot back in the US (a year and 1/2 ago), my soul has been yearning to be united with the people that captivated my heart. Thank you for so patiently journeying with me through this process and prayerfully pleading for the Lord's will to be done.

I have been asked to fill a needed position with a lovely ministry called Refilwe. Did you know that every day in Johannesburg alone, 3 babies are abandoned? This statistic, along with many others, is utterly devestating. However; there IS hope! Part of the focus of Refilwe is their El Roi Baby Home, which was started in response to the overwhelming need for these vulnerable children. El Roi Baby Home is a Christian NPO designed to care for abandoned babies by providing them with a safe and loving home while working to connect each of our babies with Forever Families through the process of local and international adoption placements.

Beginning in May, I will be volunteering to help care for the needs of these precious little babies, while learning the ropes through operational management of a baby home. This date is coming quickly - 40 days from now! Would you please prayerfully consider partnering with me on this journey? Let's aim to make a difference and save the lives of these precious babies!
