You Have to Check this Out....

Everyone, you HAVE to see this.

My old music minister from FBC Merkel who is now a minister at Watermark, Wes Butler, and his wife and 2 kiddos are adopting a precious little boy from Ethiopia. I am following their journey here:

Wes just posted pictures of little Malachi, who will join big siblings Selah and Josiah very soon.....

I have been following their journey because my heart goes out to international orphans, or any orphans, for that matter. And as Christians, God commands us to have a place in our hearts for the poor, widows and orphans (Psalm 82:3-4).

Wes had a blog link you must see. PLEASE go to this website:

There is a video at the top of the page about Bale, the precious little girl who helped to get this ministry started.

PLEASE CHECK THIS OUT!!!!!

Wow...thanks for the great post. It came at a funny time for me. I had started a post yesterday about adoption, and then tonight after reading you and Katie Kilpatrick's blogs, I changed it up a little and then finally posted it.
Thanks for your thoughts, and thanks for calling attention to the need. It is an amazing process to adopt. My cousins Ellen (Bell) and Breagan Enright (do you remember them from McMurry?) adopted a little boy from Ethiopia and it has been the biggest blessing. We are thinking about doing it too. You will have to read my post. :) www.julialovespink.blogspot.com
