Last week Leah and I received a phone call asking us to take in twin siblings, a boy and a girl. We immediately said yes, cut our Thanksgiving trip short, and returned home to purchase a van so that our family – now of six – could all ride together. It was not until after purchasing the van that we began to think of the logistics needed to care for four children which now, included three-month old twins.
Once again, we are blessed and humbled to witness the church in action. As soon as we shared the news on social media, we began receiving multiple phone calls, messages, and Facebook posts asking how our friends could help. We have been overwhelmed with the support of our church family and cannot begin to express how thankful we are for the help you have shown us. Please know that as you bless us, we in return are using these goods to bless other children, too. When our children outgrow the toys and clothes given to us, we give them to Agape so that they can continue to be a blessing to another family.
As Leah and I continue to be foster parents, we are thankful to have such a loving church family supporting us along the way. We are thankful for every prayer, card, and meal that has been sent to us. Thank you for showing the love of Christ to our children.
Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. James 1: 27
