From the intro of the podcast:
This episode unpacks the truth about happiness.
“Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, whose heart is set on pilgrimage.”
Meet a very special family who adopted 10 girls, all with special needs from around the world. We have served them with their travel through Adoption Airfare® for many of their trips, and they are one of the most joy-filled families we have ever met. Their happiness is truly supernatural. The Carpenter family share about their unique and beautiful family, knit together by adoption.
Hear how their daughter Tin-Tin was born as a product of a rape, and her life became such a precious aroma to God. Her life was used to build a large part of their ministry. Hear more about the story of this precious child, who had an eternal impact in her short life, and is now with Jesus.
Meet Brian and Stephanie Carpenter & Their beautiful family.
Find out more about who they are and what they are doing with Ting Ministries!
“How can we not give them life?”
Happy 13th Birthday Princess Avigayil Christina “Avi /Tin Tin”!
There are no words to express the daily agony of missing you. I have a confidence that I will see you again because of Jesus Christ. John 14:3 My assurance and my hope is because my eternal future is secure. I made a personal decision to accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior.
Just this week I watched a YouTube video called “Sheep Among Wolves” and attended the showing of “Free Burma Rangers”. Please look both of these up and watch for yourself. This life is not all there is – as a believer in Christ I must live for Him.
As I live without the physical presence of my sweet princess I breathe in deeply and I miss her with every breath. I remember that it was so hard to breathe without her as I waited for her before we adopted her as our daughter. Now I wait for you again on this side of heaven and it is even harder to breathe without you… AND
You are the very essence of love and you smelled of the sweet aroma of Christ. Most missed the gift you were and I am saddened for them because they missed the touch of God on this side of heaven.
We were given a gift by God Himself in you. Most don’t know that you were born from a violent act of rape upon your young 15 year old birth mother and she chose life for you. I pray every day for her healing from her pain and that one day she too will know Jesus as her Lord and Savior and she will know what a gift God gave the world through the daughter she birthed.
Everything about you drew me closer to Our Father in heaven and He continues to use your life to draw me into a deeper fellowship with Himself.
We honor your life by continuing your legacy to be a voice for the voiceless. I remember saying at Avi’s celebration service “Don’t leave this room without being changed.”
Local friends please join us at a “birthday party” fundraiser for bringing Katie home from China. The Gulnac family has said Yes to adopt Katie.
