Our little Sera is facing some unknown health issues. We are still in the testing phase. Sera's kidney's are large and unhealthy looking. She also has a cyst on one of her kidneys. We are hoping to hear back from the doctor this week. Please keep us in your prayers this week as we wait. She is a strong little girl and has amazed everyone she meets.

Half way to the goal! BUT. . . we need to reach our goal for these children!


Quita is 5 years old.  During the disarmament time, rebels came to her village and took all the men, including her father.  She never saw her father again.  Later it was discovered that these men were taken to a bridge where they were shot and thrown into the river.

Her mother ran to the Salala district with the other villagers for refuge.   There she later got sick and became paralyzed.  Last year Quita’s mother died and Quita was taken to the Lifesong Liberia's Home of Champions.  When she grows up she wants to be a medical doctor and help children.

Isn't it amazing that at 5 years old she's thinking about how someday she can help other children?

How can we help children today?

We're asking for a monthly commitment of $28 for one year.

Twenty-eight dollars...

- eating out at that new restaurant

- the shirt you've had your eye on

- a date night to the movies

- those pillows that would just look sooo good on your sofa.

I won't lie, making this commitment will require some sacrifice.  But trust me.  The sacrifice is always worth the reward.

What can you sacrifice for a child like Quita?

Our goal is 70 people.  $28 a month.  One year commitment.

We have 36 commitments, 34 to go!

An Opportunity to BE the Hands and Feet of Jesus

Let's be the Hands and Feet of Jesus!

2010 Liberia Video from Lifesong for Orphans on Vimeo.

This week we are inviting our faithful readers and supporters to step up and help us in a time of need for Lifesong Liberia.

Lifesong has partnered with The Master’s Home of Champions orphanage and is providing a loving and safe home to many destitute and abandoned children, some of whom are deaf.  We seek to be the hands and feet of Jesus, and are focused on the goal of raising up champions for the good of Liberia and glory of God! 

This summer, another orphanage was in dire need, and thanks to an unexpected donation Lifesong was there.  Praise the Lord we can help more children!  But now, we need help too!  We need your help to make sure these children are fed every day!  We need your help to care for the fatherless!  Will you join us?

70 sponsors in one week is a tall order.  We know this.  We also know that we serve a big God who has told us that caring for the poor and vulnerable is at the very heart of who He is!  We believe we can make this happen! We pray that God will call hearts this week and we trust that you will answer!

I have decided that this mom is my new therapist. Not only do I get great tips but it is good for my sanity because she makes me laugh. This video is about children who do a lot of nonsense talking. I can so relate and it does really get on my nerves. I know this was not the intention of the video, but since watching it I laugh every time my child starts the nonsense talk. So, now rather than get frustrated I think about a giant pickle and laugh.

Having a hard time finding the words to express my thoughts recently. Hopefully I will be back soon with something a little more insightful.
