prayers for hurting hearts

I don't have anything eloquent to say, but I'm writing because a lot of hearts are hurting right now. I will not share specific details, but I will tell you that dysentery is a very serious threat in the orphanage where our twins are living. A VERY serious threat...meaning it has taken NUMEROUS precious little lives in the last two weeks.

I try not to dwell on what that might have looked like over there...A population of precious orphans--all waiting families and homes--was reduced to almost half of what it was two weeks ago. We haven't heard any news about the twins recently, and we are hoping that no news is good news, BUT we don't know anything for certain and we are also hurting for those who received bad news.

We are praying for those families, and we are praying for those children who still remain. Selfishly, we are obviously praying for our twins, our son and daughter who we love, but we are praying for all of the people involved as well. We are praying for STRENGTH and supernatural health and protection, and we are praying for a speedy exit from that orphanage (hopefully to a foster family...praying for God to move mountains in this area), and a speedy entrance into homes with forever families.

Please join us. God is big. He has conquered all things. He can conquer this.

Also, I have heard of people sending water filtration buckets/systems to orphanages. Once we hear from our agency regarding this, we might try to get something going to help get clean water to the orphanage. We would appreciate input/help with this.


  1. Jenny, are you able to say which orphanage this occurred in?

    1. Amy, our agency won't even tell us because it is so dangerous. :o/
