Vacant Eyes


Last week the Lord whispered in the early morning hours that I needed to call people to pray for these sweet babes.  Everett, Olson and Porter.

     

Ever since then I have been begging prayers from anyone who happens into my pathway.  I have shared their stories to a whole host of people this week.  The urgency to pray for them has not decreased but only increased as time has gone by.

Begging for prayers was confirmed for me when I heard about Renee Alan's little Charlie


 Charlie was in the same internat as Everett and Olson. He was carried out of that internat Monday a week and a half ago and stepped down on American soil last Friday night. On Saturday he was in the hospital.  Charlie had been drugged, beaten, traumatized, starved and dehydrated.  His body had bruising from head to toe.

You want to know the saddest part of this story?  You want to know why I will stop anyone and everyone and beg them to pray??? Renee said that Everett was in worse condition than Charlie.  Renee said the abuse on Everett is harsher.  He is more bruised and is in overall worse shape.  The doctors were surprised that Charlie had made it across the ocean. His little body was fighting drugs, malnutrition and abuse.  Once they got some IV fluids in him and his body was able to expel the drugs in his system he has come alive.  Underneath the little boy with the vacant eyes and twitching body and autistic behaviors was a smart, funny and sweet little guy. EVERETT IS WORSE.  Everett is being drugged, beaten, starved and traumatized on a daily basis.  Do you understand why I am begging prayers from everyone I meet?


Because this little boy... this little boy with the scars on his back...


This little boy with the vacant eyes and the bruising on his face... This little boy with the staggered, drugged walk... 

Everett


HE NEEDS US TO PRAY!!

HE NEEDS US TO PRAY!!

And for those who want to HELP RAISE FUNDS for the Enskats as they work to cross the ocean AS FAST AS THEY CAN to rescue these boys... There is an AMAZING GIVEAWAY that started this week that is filled to overflowing with items you can win!!  It is HERE.  GO CHECK IT OUT!! Join in... Donate on this one... donate on that one.... Please!!  And pray for both Michelle and Noah Enskat as they work to get these boys.  Knowing that their SONS are in such bad condition is extremely hard to bear.   

And while you are at it.... go over to Porter's blog and give his family some support.  They are really struggling right now.   As I told them, the Lord didn't just tap my heart to pray for Everett and Olson.  Porter was on the list too!!   Knowing that does NOT put them at ease.  Remember this... Porter and Heath are breathing the same NOTHING air.  Porter was transferred to Heath's Level 4 institute a few months ago.  He is a desperately lonely and lost little boy in a world that is very very scary!

So go support the Eriksons.  Make a donation and COME BACK HERE and tell me... I will definitely count your donation TO PORTER into our Giveaway here!!

  3. Hello, thank you for telling us this so we can pray as that is the greatest thing we can do. Aside from prayer I just donated $30 for sweet Porter and $30 for Everett and Olson. God Bless you, these boys and the families bringing them home.

  4. Hello, I just donated $15 to Evertt and Olson. I will do more once the next paycheck gets deposited. I've been familiar with the Enskats since little Yuri became a member of their family. God bless them for their love of these little lovies. Sweet Everett needs to be HOME! I was in Eastern Europe orphanages over 15 years ago and it pains me to see such prejudice still going on for innocent Roma children. And God bless you for your dedication and passion in advocating for all these children and giving us ways to help. PS. Excited about the Nance's T-shirt. It looks great. I will have to keep my eye out for when it becomes available to purchase. Adoption shirts are always WAY more fun to wear than something with a silly store name on the front. :)
