A good friend of mine, Tiffany Johnson, is working to bring home a beautiful son from Sierra Leone. She is having a FaceBook blitz today by asking people to donate as little as $10 or $15 and/or by posting the following as their FB status for the next 24 hours.
You can just copy and paste this line into your FB status....easy!

James 1:27 says that true religion is caring for the orphan and the widow. I know that not everyone feels "called" to adopt children into their family. However, I DO believe that we ALL have been called to be the hands and feet of Jesus to these children who are helpless and alone. If you don't feel led to adopt, then there is really no excuse for not reaching out to these children in some way. There are many, many ways to help and supporting people who are trying to adopt is one of them.
You have an opportunity to be a part of providing a precious little boy a loving forever family....please pray about it and then do what you believe God is leading you to do.
"...once our eyes are opened, we can't pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act."
