drawn from water

Thank you Tracy for posting this. This story needs to be shared. I spent some time on the drawnfromwater.org website yesterday and was greatly blessed. If you go to the site, read "the story" tab of how the organization came to be and the faithfulness of those that literally jumped into action. 

Imagine if your spouse went on a mission trip and called you while there to say honey "I think we are supposed to move our family here and help these precious children."  I took complete liberty with that conversation, but my point is that they saw a need and literally sprang into action.  

If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. (Matt. 16:24-5)
Follow me, and I will make you become fishers of men. (Mark 1:17)
I am the light of the world; he who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life. (John 8:12)
Follow me, and leave the dead to bury their own dead. (Matt. 8:22)
If you would be perfect, go, sell what you possess and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me. (John 8:31)

Thank you for posting this site, Emily. Over the years it is a wonder to me as our family continues to wade into the Fields of the Fatherless. God continues to draw all who are willing to see into His love for all His precious children, I believe the orphan weighs heavy on Him, now, us...and, I am thankful to Him and you for sharing this site. I plan to bookmark to begin with and follow through prayer, hoping that God will provide a way for each and every member in His Body to contribute to the lives of the orphan!!

Please hug Abe for all of us, I was overwhelmed with thanks to God and happiness to see Abe's strong look of determination to crawl and stand....I just know he will soon and can not wait to see him accomplish so much more...and, he sure will!!!
