China life/love the orphans

Over the past 4 years God has cultivated a passion in my heart to work with the orphans of China. As a former orphan I have a unique ability to relate to current orphans in a way that very few other people can. After much prayer, consideration, and God's leading, I have been able to move to China. Over the year God has continued to show me how to build my life here and what it will look like for me to show his love to the orphans of China. I have recently been invited to work with Evergreen China.  Evergreen is a faith based organization that has been in operation since 1993 and continues to impact the lives of special needs orphans here. In order for me to be able to partner with them long term I need to become fluent in Chinese. Therefore, I believe that continuing to live here, as a full time language student, for the next year is the best option for me. I also have plans to visit with Evergreen to keep track of my progress and continue working towards full time partnership. Please know that your donations are greatly appreciated and will, ultimately, help bring God's love to people who need it the most.

"True devotion, the kind that is pure and faultless before God the Father, is this: to care for orphans and widows in their difficulties and to keep the world from contaminating us." ~ James 1:27

"Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you." Matthew 17:20
