Video Update: Both Hands Project

Last Saturday, our family worked with a team of 15 to undo 20 years of dust, grime and broken things in and around the mobile home of Louise, a 90-year-old former missionary who has no family. It was a blessing to be a part of something bigger than ourselves and to know that this could help the Zuzunaga family bring home Maria, a Russian orphan with down syndrome home sooner than later.

From Gentry Zuzunaga:
It really was a great experience as we were able to share God's love for this really needy woman. I am so amazed at all that God has done during our adoption process, including the Both Hands project. Because we chose to answer God's call to adopt, He has also given us the opportunity to minister to other people, including Louise, who we might otherwise, not have met. We serve a really BIG God and I'm so glad He can see the BIG picture because mine is definitely too narrow.

Please watch the video of our project and prayerfully consider a donation to the cause of bringing Maria home to her forever family. Funds are coming in so slowly for this family and the longer we wait, the older Maria gets. She is 4 years old right now. By 5 years old, the orphanages send these wonderful children into institutions for the mentally ill. It's not a pretty picture, but you can make a difference in the life of Maria today. The donation information is at the end of the video. James 1:27 Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
