By now I am sure you are aware that November is National Adoption Month which means there are lots of events going on to bring awareness to the orphan crisis that our world is facing. If you ever wanted to find out more about adoption/foster care, now is the time as there is likely an awareness event going on somewhere near you over the next few weeks. I wanted to invite you to an event being held TONIGHT at our church:
Cornerstone Church of Ames
56829 U.S. Highway 30
The event starts at 6:30pm and will be held in the Equipping Room. We will have 5 different families giving their ‘testimonies’ of how God led them to open their homes and lives to orphans and those in need. Three families will be speaking on their international adoptions, one family will be sharing about foster care, and another family will be sharing about hosting a student from a Native American Reservation in South Dakota called Rosebud. Each family will be sharing some awesome insights centered around fears, obstacles, sacrifices, etc. I can only imagine how powerful, honest, and inspiring each of these stories will be.
Jake gets the opportunity to share a bit of our story again tonight which is so exciting. Since our adoption was just finished it seems like we are getting so many opportunities to share about our journey. Soon our story won't be so 'new' anymore, but for now we are soaking up every chance we get to speak on behalf of those who have no voice!!!!
If you ever wanted to know more about adoption, foster care, or opening up your home to those in need, tonight is another chance!
