Dark Horse of the Week Sun!

You will show me the path of life;
In Your presence is fullness of joy;
At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
Psalm 16:11

This week's Dark Horse is 3 year old Sun (soon)!
Sun is a bright and playful little boy who loves to be silly! Sometimes he will wake up before his foster father, and he will stealthily sneak up to him and pinch his nose!

Sun came into orphanage care when he was 2 1/2 years old. He is now in a foster home and is showing himself to be a very smart boy. When his food is too hot he will ask his foster mom for another bowel. He has now figured out that if he separates the food into two parts it will cool down much faster! What a little problem solver!

Sun is generally very healthy - he has not had any serious illness. He has some hearing loss that have delayed his language skills. But his caretakers feel he is very adaptive and he has found other ways to communicate.
Other than his language skills, his development is on par with his peers. Like a typical 3 year old he can handle most self-care tasks on his own.

Please join us in prayer for Sun!

Dear Father I thank You for Sun.
I thank You for the life that You have planned for him and I ask that he wouldn't miss out on a single step of the journey You have created for him.
Please bring him a family.
In Jesus Christ' name, amen.

We ask that You would continue to guide his life.

In Jesus Christ' name, amen.

Farewell Shan!
We love you!
