Answer: Art for Orphans (by orphans!)
Hannah and Ellianna were busy on a sunny afternoon painting! By the end of the day, it was hard to tell which was more paint-covered: the canvas or the girls?!
Thanks to everyone who submitted titles. Keep an eye out for the winner to be announced in the next few days!
“…I am with you to deliver you,” says the Lord. —Jeremiah 1:8
God promised Jeremiah that He would deliver him personally— “…your life shall be as a prize to you…” (Jeremiah 39:18). That is all God promises His children. Wherever God sends us, He will guard our lives. Our personal property and possessions are to be a matter of indifference to us, and our hold on these things should be very loose. If this is not the case, we will have panic, heartache, and distress. Having the proper outlook is evidence of the deeply rooted belief in the overshadowing of God’s personal deliverance.
In the time of graduations and commencements, we have one more grad to congratulate around here! Hannah “Annie” had a graduation party in her class!
She has quite a story–from an aging out orphan in China to an orphan advocate in the US. Please take the time to really look at these two pictures. The first is Annie in China, before she knew she had a family coming for her. The second was taken about a year later.
When Ting Ministries says family can transform a child–this is why. Look at that smile! Hannah is super smart. She is already understanding and speaking English while maintaining her Chinese! When Ting Ministries says every child deserves a family–this is why. We rushed to China just in time for Hannah. If we hadn’t, she would have aged out, never knowing the love of a family, never going to school, and never having opportunities to be a voice for orphans–including her two sisters waiting in China, Brittan and Hope. Can you please consider helping Brittan and Hope to have the same opportunities as Hannah? Please go to www.youcaring.com/return2china to learn more, donate, and share their story. Hannah is home now because people came alongside us to make sure she made it. Now, Hannah wants to make sure the same happens for her sisters.
Congratulations Hannah! We can’t wait to see the big plans the Lord has for your life.
