Today a wonderful mom I had the pleasure of meeting, while she was bringing home her 2 boys, kept her promise to children left alone in an orphanage in Eastern Europe. She promised that she would not forget them and no matter what it took she would find them each a family. Now there are not 20,000+ people all gathered together in one location cheering this boy on. There are not 1,000 people lined up outside a building just waiting to catch a glimpse of this handsome fella.
Instead there is this one mom.
How can one mom make a difference? Why would one mom want to try?
Because Jesus commanded her to do so and He also commanded each one of us to do so.
Little Andrew is the same age as my Ethan. Today Ethan looked at the computer as I was reading this mom's blog post and he said "woa." I used that moment to talk to Ethan about how this little guy is his own age, has no one to love him, or give him medicine when his leg hurts, no one to kiss him, and no brothers or sisters. I asked him is he wanted to pray with me for Andrew to find a family and he told me "you pray". I asked Ethan why does he not want to pray. He said that he did not know how to pray for a family for this boy. So I told him let's pray together and we did. Just a few minutes later Madelaine came into the room and Ethan wanted to show her Andrew and tell her how he does not have any brothers or sister to love him.
See. That ONE mom. That ONE promise. It has multiplied. It has reached into the hearts and minds of those who never met nor knew of this little man. Now that ONE has become 1,000 and then 10,000 etc.. Would you please help that ONE to become 100,000, or even 1, 000,000? Will you show that ONE can make a difference for Andrew?
