Update on Holland


Holland is 3 years old and I found an update on her from Dec. 2014.




















 Nevertheless I am continually with You;
You hold me by my right hand.
Psalm 73:23


In this update they say she is talking well, normal for her age. 
Because of her retinoblastoma (eye cancer) she's had both of her eyes removed and has (is?) going through chemo therapy. Though their report says the cancer was not found to be spreading anywhere else.
When asked how she was doing, they said she was doing well, pretty normal. 

This sweet little girl is still waiting for a forever family. Please continue to join us in prayer for her.

You can give to Holland's adoption fund at:

Lifesong for Orphans January Update: What Made Roman Smile Again!

Roma. New smile_Chernigov
This past Christmas season was extra special for a young man in Ukraine. A 19-year-old young man named Roman.
Unfortunately, at a very young age, Roman lost both of his parents. He was sent to an orphanage and later met local Christians who minister to children and young adults within the orphanage walls and after they age out.
Roman is a very curious kid by nature. He has asked many questions about life, about people, and about God. Another characteristic about Roman anyone would quickly notice is that he would rarely smile, displaying a tight-lipped frown on a somewhat gloomy face. Knowing the hardships of life he had faced, it didn't come as too much of a surprise.
This past September, as he entered a tech school to become a builder, he was invited to attend a Bible Study at a Lifesong Transition Home. He gladly accepted and started to attend. Although, he wasn't quite as quick to accept the invitations that were offered to attend church.The Lifesong staff started to pray for his repentance, as they sensed he was seeking the Lord.
As the staff continued to get to know Roman better, they discovered that his lack of smile had a reason behind it. Roman didn't have any front teeth! Our staff connected him to a charitable dentist who helped Roman at a minimal charge to bring his smile back. And guess what? Roman decided it was time to start smiling again. Shortly after, right around Christmas, he began to walk in fellowship with God, believing in Jesus as his Savior! And now, as you can see in the picture above, he hasn't stopped smiling!
Thanks be to God for drawing this young man to Himself! Please pray for Roman as he starts his walk with Christ, that He would be filled with the Spirit and walk in His Truth!
