My friend, Andrea, is having a fundraiser THIS WEEKEND ONLY!!!!
All moneys (100%) will go toward travel expenses to the US for Tetyana, the 15 year old Andrea's family will be hosting this summer from an orphanage in the Ukraine! The online party will be on until TONIGHT (Sunday) at midnight!
Tetyana will arrive in the U.S. in late June--and she will be with Andrea and her family until August! She will turn 16 while she is with them in July--meaning she will "age out" of the orphanage system! Please pray that a family will hear about Tetyana and consider adopting her or that the Lord would use Andrea's family to bind them together and create change for her future.
After "aging out" 60% of orphans in Ukraine become prostitutes, many of the other percentage gets caught in sex trafficking or drugs, and a large percentage commits suicide within the first year of aging out as the other options seem hopeless.
Many of us are praying the Lord does something REALLY big through this summer together. Please pray that among the language barriers, Tetyana will experience the love of Christ and that all of their lives will also be forever changed by the relationship that is formed.
Alright...now you have a really good excuse to shop 31 Gifts on behalf of Tetyana's travel this summer!
I said to the man who stood at the gate of the new year, "Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown." And he replied, "Go into the darkness and put your hand into the hand of God. That shall be to you better than light and safer than a known way!"
