These are the words of Russell Moore (Southern Seminary) at Summit VII
"We are afraid of orphans. Because orphans are unpredictable. There is always some kind of tragedy. We would rather not think of such things. We are afraid of the mark left on the victims of tragedy.
God, in his adopting power thru Jesus, has brought us into his family. We reach orphans as ex-orphans ourselves.
As we move into the dangerous places, we empower others to live courageously. What do we have to be afraid of anymore? Jesus has given us a path. When we love in the sad, dark, haunted places; children who we are afraid of, we follow Jesus there."

This is a wonderful evening of prayer, fellowship, and encouragement for ladies that are anywhere in the process of foster and/or adoption. If you are an "old pro" your insight is greatly appreciated, if you are new to this journey come and let us walk alongside you!
There is no need to RSVP just show up. Feel free to bring a friend. If you would like to provide a snack food you are welcome to do that, but do not feel like you have to there are always plenty of snacks.
Any questions you can contact Amy @ email@example.com.

Our main needs right now are two-fold: (1) Donations and (2) someone to head up a toy drive.
As of Friday of last week, donations totaled $1200. Ideally we'd like to raise $3,000 for furniture, paint, toys, etc. But if someone is willing to lead a toy drive initiative, this will drive down the total amount we need to raise. If you're interested, please let me know ASAP. I can give you further information if you're interested.
The deadline for donations is May 16th, at which point I will work with our design team and shopping team to divvy up the money to purchase furniture, wall decor, paint, toys, etc. for the waiting room.
If you have questions please contact Amy @ firstname.lastname@example.org and she will get you in touch with Catherine.

The Forgotten Initiative is an arm of Lifsong for Oprhans and is raising $3000 for new books, toys and furniture. Will you help? Necessities like a changing table, sleeping mats, and high chairs will also be purchased. We hope to complete this project in June 2011, with a tentative target date set of June 1, 2011.
If you'd like to add your personal touch to this project, please contact Amy @ email@example.com and I will put you in touch with Catherine. Catherine is in the process of getting the word out to raise funds to make this dream of blessing these kids a reality.
Checks can be make payable to:
