1000 Prayers


You see this sweet little girl?  She has checked every hour to see if the chip-in for her sister has gone up.  Every single donation has made her jump through the roof.


Today is her little sister's birthday.  She can't give her a cake or presents.  She can't give her kisses and hugs.  But she can pray for her.  She can fight for her.  And she can store up the memories of these moments so that when Rowyn is home with her loving family, she can share with her how many people prayed her home.

She started out asking for 1000 prayers for her sister across the ocean.

1000 prayers. 

Rowyn age 3, waiting in China

Obrion is 220 prayers/dollars short of reaching her goal. It ends tonight.  Will you help?  

Will you offer a prayer and drop a dollar, or two, in Rowyn's bucket?

Those $1,000 prayers will allow Obrion's family to send their dossier across the ocean.   Tracey has a daycare and all of her money right now is going STRAIGHT to the adoption fund.    They can afford to feed these babes.  They can care for them, love them, give them warm beds and nice clothes... but the cost of bringing them home is the heart-stopper.   $220.00 is such a small amount!!  Please let's get this for them and not only that... but let's run their cup over!  They have 30+ thousand more to raise before all is said and done.

They are desperately trying to raise money to send their dossier to Ch*na to adopt two little children with dwarfism.

This is Obrion Sharp and she has been working for THREE WEEKS to raise 1000 prayers (dollars) before her sister's birthday WHICH IS TUESDAY...

She still needs $450.00 to reach her goal!!!

I KNOW we can raise that $450.00 by Tuesday night.... PLEASE HELP... Donate to BOTH Heath and the Sharps...

And for all those who do... as an added incentive.... This sock monkey was made by another set of young girls to raise money for their own family's adoption but they are DONATING it to Obrion to help her raise what she needs....  I LOVE WHEN KIDS GET INVOLVED IN ADOPTIONS!!!

So anyone who donates in the next two days will be given a chance to WIN this Sock Monkey!!!



HERE'S WHAT YOU DO:

  • Use the links and go donate.
  • THEN, come back to this blog and leave a comment to let me know two things: (1) your first and last name and (2) the total amount that you donated to Heath and the amount you donated to the Sharps. Because I always moderate my comments, I will be able to keep this information private.
  • If you prefer not to leave a comment, you can e-mail me at covenantb@yahoo.com.
NOTES:
  • None of the money that you donate will flow through our hands; it will all go directly to the people who need it.

  3. I have been following your blog since the first day.
    I don't usually comment, but this time i feel i should.
    I found a blog about a couple who is adopting two Children from EE, and the conditions that this children are living cannot be describe in words.
    They have adopted 5 children in two years , so all their savings are 0.
    They are trying to finish this adoption in two months, because one of the children is in so bad conditions, that they dont think that he will survive more that 2 month in the institution that he is living , but they don't have the money needed to bring them home in that time and they are asking us to share and help.

  5. Obrion's ChipIn is closed due to reaching the goal. I wanted you to know that I donated $10 with the adoption ChipIn instead. Thank you for all your efforts to bring attention and information to orphans. I am inspired reading your blog.

  6. At the last minute, I was asked to teach the 1st grade Sunday School class at my church. The memory verse for this first week is Micah 6:8. As I hope my little charges learn to live out this verse, God is touching my heart to do likewise. I have donated to Heath and the Sharps, $10 each (used the third Chipin for the Sharps). May all of these children and families for whom you advocate be forever blessed.
