it takes a village

Hey beautiful people!  In all of the goings on in life lately, I haven't had an appropriate opportunity to tell you about some amazing stuff the Lord is doing through a couple of families, one of which I know well & love much (Amy & Todd Block).  You know I am passionate for orphans, so I am excited to be a stateside rep to help communicate information for The Village of Hope, a ministry of Lifesong for Orphans in partnership with Project Hopeful.  If you are not yet familiar with either of these organizations, take a minute to google them...Straight up AWESOME work for children!!  Anyway, periodically I will be sharing here on my blog & via FB about the happenings at The Village of Hope as well as news & needs.  Read on...

It takes a village to raise a child! – African Proverb


When God called us to start Village of Hope, we knew that HE would put together the pieces and bring those that He would have serve alongside us. We are completely blown away by all the people He has been sending our way… but, then again, we really shouldn’t be blown away by how great our God is and how HE provides to bring His work to completion.


As we prayed and asked the Lord to provide for the first $20,000 needed for Village of Hope, God’s people stepped forward to provide an incredible gift basket. From now until August 1st, you have a chance to win!

Village of Hope is a ministry of Lifesong for Orphans in partnership with Project Hopeful. The vision for Village of Hope was born out the knowledge that God has a heart for the least of these. Scripture reveals a God who is passionate about the sick, the widow, the orphan, the alien, and the poor.The purpose of Village of Hope is to provide family, faith and a future to the least of these by providing holistic orphan care to special needs orphans, primarily focused on those living with HIV/AIDS in a family-style setting.

How awesome to be a Stateside Rep. for them. I am so excited about what the Lord is doing in and through the Block family. Amy is a precious friend of mine, as well. We prayed each other through some really tough stuff a few years ago, so it is really exciting to see all that God has unfolded of His plan for their lives.
