A Message From Josie-Tatum's Mama

In November, I led our church in adoption/orphan awareness activities. Josie-Tatum watched intently as I previewed videos and brochures. She was moved to find out how she could help with questions like, "Mama, what can we do to help orphans?" and "Mama, where can we go to help orphans?"

As I sought to encourage her compassion, a door was opened for us to join Servant's House Ministries on a trip to South Africa in July. This is Josie-Tatum's story, her opportunity to share with you what the LORD speaks to her.

Our 2011 Mission

Did you know they're 147 million orphans in the world? Did you know about every 18 sec. a child becomes an orphan? That is just sad. Don't you think? They're are some ways you can help, #1: adopt, #2: sponsor, and #3: pray. Do you think you could do that? I do.

Now about South Africa. Did you know they are building a home? They call it the ''Lighthouse.'' 5 children are going to live there. Their names are Faith, Solomon, Shandukani, Adi, and Zhuavudi. They live now in caravans.

Guess what....I'm going to South Africa this summer because I felt like God called me and Mom. Three other people are coming, Moose(my cousin). He's ssssooo funny! He's going to work so well with teh children. I can't wait! Don't worry. We'll send pictures. I won't be the only kid. My friend and her mom are coming with us. We're going to have a blast. We're going to work in the mission school. We'll feed the children. We may give them clothes. I want to play with the orphans on the base, Faith, Solomon, Shandukani, Adi, and Zhuavudi.

Would you like to help? What can you do?
